Never noticed this place before and have been to Mackinaw several times. By far the best place in Mackinaw. Will definitely be going back tomorrow and following trips. Highly recommend.

I'm glad I read the reviews of this place on trip advisor before coming to Mackinaw, otherwise I would not have entered the building based on the look of the place 'outside'.

This is our go-to place when we are in the area. We can always count on a great whitefish sandwich, a cold beer, sports on the tvs, and fun people-watching. You might have to wait for a table, but they'll try and find you if you're walking around outside. We love looking at all of the keys!

Per TA recommendations we dined at the Key Hole....prices were very reasonable, food was excellent...grilled chicken sandwich and the steak sandwich (there were 2 of us). The portions were plentiful, the service was prompt and the ambience and decor unique.

Seems as though every restaurant we have been to in mackinaw city is overpriced and awful service except the keyhole. Our children who are very picky wanted to go back same day for dinner too! Loved it highly recommend you visit the keyhole for lunch or dinner
