Good place

This was probably the best meal we had while in Mackinaw City. You have to stay alert so you don't miss your number being called, but the pizza was worth the wait, especially the crust. And they don't gouge you on the price of their beer.

The museum is nice. Great history on the bridge and builders. Pizza restaurant is horrible. Food is so gross. Use to go here when I was younger not anymore went a few years ago and didn't like the food. Thought maybe it was a bad day and took a chance again. Was worse than before. Never again look for pizza... More

We ate here for dinner on our way back from the UP and prior to checking into our hotel in Mackinaw City. Not that great and for what you got a little pricey for pizza and iceburg lettuce on a salad. Museum upstairs though was interesting.Would not recommend

This place was crazy-busy on a Friday night, but we didn't want to wait 45 minutes for a table at a nearby restaurant, so we figured we'd try it. It took about 35 minutes to get our pizza, but it was great and we were very glad we stopped in. The staff was very friendly, the prices were reasonable, and... More

The museum upstairs was cool to see and the staff was friendly and accomadating. It reminded me of a run down VFW and the only thing good on the menu was the pizza. My friend and I ate the tacos which tasted like Alpo but thats just me... all in all not the best.

Although the food is average and nothing special, it is adequate. What makes this place special is the free museum upstairs that honors the people that built the Mackinac Bridge. It has hard hats and memorabilia and even movies. It was very interesting and worth the stop. Any history buff would really like this stop. As for the food, you... More

The pizza was awesome and as the pizza chef told us "Made with Love" :). The staff was friendly and helpful, even offering a couple of samples of local beers to "try before you buy". The Cheboygan Brewing Co (VERY local) Blood Orange Honey beer was great. I'd highly recommend this; in my opinion the best pizza in Mac City

The place was crowded which was OK, you order at the counter so no waiters or waitresses but that's OK too. But the most important part, the pizza, was not very good. The crust was doughy, the sauce was a little too tomato pasty tasting, and there was hardly any cheese on it.

I once again ordered a pizza from here. It was delivered promptly, and the driver was friendly. I ordered a vegetarian pizza with chicken as a topping. It was awesome! This is about the 3rd pizza I've had from here in the last year, and I have been pleased each time. Highly recommend for their pizza!

Downtown Mackinaw City can be crowded during the summer months and the restaurants can have lines and/or waiting lists. We walked around until we found a place where we could get a table right away. That is how we ended up at Mama Mia's Pizza. This is a very casual dining establishment. You walk in and place your order at... More
