This place has good food and a good atmosphere. But they have very expensive prices. The service was also very good.

I normally am pretty lenient about how service is. I work in the service industry as well so I don't judge too quickly. But when we on the island can get three tables of 4 tops and still get hot food and a bill to someone in a timely manner? And I have to wait 15 minutes for a bill... More

We have eaten here a couple of times. My husband had the fish and chips and loved it. I had a burger that was great. The Bob's bbq sauce was awesome on my sandwich so we bought a bottle to go. Kids had grilled cheese. Beer was cold and they had a decent selection on draft. Sitting upstairs is nice... More

The fish and burgers were awesome. Good prices and tasted so good. Service was so-so. 15 minute wait on a Tuesday at 6pm. Great atmosphere.

Just returned from a familty of 14 vacation to Mackinaw City. We visited the Dixie Saloon on Friday evening, very very busy but had a wonderful waitress by the name of Danica S. she was wonderful, very attentive to all of our needs. The food was very good, and considering the large group we had, she did a splendid job.

The waitstaff and hostess staff are no where near operating efficiently, long wait at the door while many tables were available. The menu is expensive for being the normal bar style options. A 10.00 burger is just that, cheese, lettuce, tomato and onion is extra. While there was some wait staff running around tending to their tables ours was no... More

The food was frozen and overpriced. We stopped for lunch and the restaurant was empty. That is never a good sign at lunch hour. The food was processed and frozen and over priced. The wait staff was slow even though there was no one in the joint.

We were driving to the U.P. and stopped here for a quick bite to eat and to stretch our legs. We had terrible service (slow, forgot drinks) and the food took quite awhile to come out. It had a great atmosphere, but it didn't seem like the service could keep up with the demand. The salad was mediocre at best... More

We had a group of 13 for dinner and we were seated fairly quickly. The atmosphere was fun and the service was great. The food was also very good. It was a little pricey, but typical for a tourist town.
