The Chippewa Room is well decorated with native American décor. The menu is extensive and the prices are reasonable. The food was excellent. The filet mignon was a bit thinner sliced than I liked but was tender and cooked to order. The flaming bananas foster is quite an experience and delicious.

To find a restaurant like this in a tourist town is such a delight. White linen tablecloths, cloth napkins and monogramed wine glasses and flickering candles were a nice touch to wildlife themed ambience. This is not a snobby place at all. We had a fabulous meal. I had a melt in your mouth filet mignon with morrel mushroom sauce.... More

I've eaten at the Chippewa Room MANY times over the years, and have eaten a variety of items on the menu, and I've always been very happy with the experience, the service is great and the food is fantastic - even the small salad bar is one of the best I've had. If you're in the Mackinaw area and looking... More

We are not white linen people but this was very comfortable. Mary, our waitress, was so nice and professional but also down to earth. Food was satisfying and I wasn't hungry when we left. Everyone made our dining experience very good. Thanks again

We ate a late dinner here on our last night in Northern Michigan. My husband ordered the rack of lamb and I had the whitefish - both were very good. They had a salad bar that was fresh even for the late hour. We had read the positive reviews on TA and were glad to find an elegant place to... More

Decided to try this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews and we were very pleased with our meal and service! We were both hungry for steak after eating so much seafood the past week, so that is what we both ordered. It was cooked exactly medium-rare as requested, but it was not the best cut of meat we've ever had,... More

The Chippewa Room is part of Audie's. We have eaten at most of the higher rated restaurants in Mackinaw City and this is the best. The service was excellent and we enjoyed the quiet atmosphere. Try the walleye you can't beat it. I would recommend calling ahead for a reservation.

Getting tired of going into restaurants serving substandard food. I ordered a wedge salad with a side of grilled chicken. I got a plate of 4 pieces of romaine lettuce, a glob of blue cheese dressing and fake bacon. We're starting to think we need to rent condos every where we go from now on so we can cook our... More
