The first restaurant upon arriving in Mackinaw City was a true find! My Daughter had the spaghetti, Hubby ordered the cajun whitefish it was fresh and succulent! I had the chicken and seafood. The chicken was so moist and flavorful! If we could stay a little longer I would go back!

Stopped here twice on our way to the island and then a few days later over the bridge. Everyone enjoyed their meals, great service, low prices. Homemade bread and jam for the toast.

This was our 2year anniversary vacation and we decided to visit Audies. The food here was delicious and the price was affordable! It's an inside family diner experience and our waitress was most kind and attentive.

Dear ladycritik, Congratulations on your anniversary! I hope you had a wonderful trip. So glad you enjoyed the food and service. Flies and seagulls are my biggest summer pet peeves! With the busy summer traffic in and out the front door pesky flies do come in, but we have found most guests would prefer we weren't running around swatting flies... More

We are from out of town and wanted to try a local eatery instead of one the chains. Based on reviews we were hopeful. It took a while for the waitress to even acknowledge us and the it was not busy. Salad bar is not worth the extra 1.99 (the plates are too small) and the BLT was mediocre at... More

If you're looking for a great meal in Mackinaw City, go to Audie's. The service was excellent and the food and drink was just as good. Our server has worked there for 35+ years and couldn't have been nicer and more attentive to us.

Food was okay. Salad bar was mediocre. Do NOT order a Bloody Mary if you know the difference between a good one and a bad one. Took almost as long to stand in line to pay our bill as it took to eat the food. Ridiculous. New server, who didn't have many answers to our questions. Ho hum overall. Might... More

Dear Kim R., I am so sorry to hear that your experience at Audie's was not 100% positive. Although we have a core staff that has been with us for decades business in Mackinaw City grows exponentially in July and August so we must grow our staff as well.

This place is the real deal. Consistent, friendly, amazing atmosphere. The waitresses I the family room, Chippewa room, and lounge are all great and all make the visit worthwhile. Nick, the owner is great to talk to and the staff is all around fun. The food, that's another story. Pasta, ribs, steak, salads, sandwiches... All of it is great!
