A must to eat at. I had the whitefish sandwich it was the best . Staff was all friendly and good at their job,fun place to go. We had the pretzel bites both times we came here. If you don't have anything but a drink and the pretzel bites with the cheese dipping sauce.

Attentive staff and a nice atmosphere. The only restaurant we visited in Mackinaw City where they actually knew what they were doing. Enjoyed the whitefish.

The standard by which I judge all others! If the locals eat there, you know it's good....been going there for over 20 years. Great atmosphere. Outta sight food, especially burgers and whitefish. Generous drinks. First place we head to in the Tip o' the Mitt!
