Have never been here but heard great things and was not disappointed. A great bacon cheeseburger with sweet potato fries. All excellent. Various beer choices as well and settled with a summer favorite to add to the experience. Many families with kids eating as well so not a true bar. Will definitely go back.

walleye was very good - recommended. The jerk chicken was quite spicy but had lots of bones still in. The Cheboyan Red beer was very good.

My friends and I LOVED this place! We went both nights we stayed in Mackinaw City. The bar had a great service and atmosphere, billiards, an arcade game, and live entertainment!

Every time I'm in Mackinaw City I stop in for a beer and food. Try the whitefish basket or mini tacos. Best homemade onion rings around. Good prices too.

I loved the theme in this bar/grill. The sandwiches we got were amazing and cold beer on tap! Friendly and prompt waitstaff. It was an enjoyable evening for us.

There's never a discussion of where we stop to each when we are in Mackinaw City. A stop at the Keyhole is required. Service was great and the food is prepared fast (you barely order and there is food on the table). Now if only their Passion Burger would pair up with their Blue Cheese Burger to make and amazing...

Good food, small space & one of the few places to get good food. Always busy though & no one seats you so you just sort of hover until someone leaves. But a cute bar and like I said the food is good.
