We went here for a late evening meal. The food was average, and pricey. It is a tourist area so I guess that is to be expected. Lots of variety on tap. I don't know if I would go back if in the area.

It's just your average pub. Very small. We just ordered some appetizers (wings) not very good at all very small and plain not like Pub style wings you get at most restaurants. We also go the spinach dip also very small portion of dip compared to the chips. The service was okay but not great.

We ate here mid afternoon when only a couple other people were in the restaurant and it took forever to get our food. Good food, but pricey.

We went here while on vacation before heading to the Island the next day. We were greeted warmly by the staff and had a great time talking to them while we had some food and drinks. The food was good and at the right price, the beer selection wasn't bad, and we really enjoyed the atmosphere. Great place to go... More

The bar was half full, most of the staff acted similar to deer in the headlights. After finally getting some drinks at the bar, we were never interacted with again. No menu was offered, the guy who got our drinks complained about being busy. I would hope you are busy in Mackinaw City in July. It was a challenge to... More

O'Reilly's looks like it could be a fun place on the outside - but once inside you'll likely be disappointed. Other comments about slow service are true - be prepared to wait a long time mostly due to chaos and disorganization. The food was pretty good and reasonably priced considering where we are! Our server/bartender was nice but it took... More

Open central area with long bar running down one side, 2 floors of seating, balcony style, charming place, very very busy. As you would expect most places to be in a touristy environment like this. Do not expect fast service due to large number of patrons. But do expect good service when you get it, kudos to Derek, never seen... More

The service was slow. Three of us had fish and two of the three felt sick later that night. One of our group found a hair in her food. I wouldn't go back there or recommend this place to anyone.
