Restaurant was recommended to us by friends. We put our name in for a table and they said 20 minutes, Had a great bartender, Sara, who set us in the mood for fun. After about 45 minutes, I checked with hostess and saw she skipped over us by 4-5 other guests, I had informed her and another girl we'd be... More

We thought we'd give it a try in spite of the bad reviews. Bad decision. We arrived at the restaurant at 7:40 pm. We waited 20 minutes to get seated, but that was not a problem because they were busy. We got seated at 8:00 and didn't even get our drinks until approx. 8:45 and our dinner finally arrived at...

We waited very long to get our food and it was not even that great. Our waitress was not friendly and seemed less than interested in providing quality service. She never cleared our table and she did not bother checking on us once.

Walked in and got a table pretty quick but after she brought half of the drink order she disappeared for 20 minutes. She then came back and took our food order at which point we asked for the rest of the drinks. 10 minutes later a couple more drinks showed up (still short one). Finally after 40 minutes the drink...

Waitress was TERRIBLE. Never checked on us and had a poor attitude. She disappeared after taking our order. We ordered appetizers and theappetizier plates were NEVER cleared when our entrees arrived living the table in a mess. I am not sure what what the problem this night of if it was because we did not look like the other diners... More

We were seated and given menus, but then the waitresses just stood around looking bored and chatting. Nobody came to our table for 10 minutes, so we walked out.

We requested to be seated upstairs and were waited on by a server named Dan. He did a tremendous job of adding to our dining pleasure with his very friendly service. The burgers were great as was the view of Mackinac Island, from our seats!

We went here because we got 10% off. The food wasn't terrible but I wasn't really impressed either. If you want the chicken tender appetizer, order the kids meal chicken tender....you get the same amount of chicken and you get fries with the kids meal. The price is about the same.

This place seemed really nice at first. The server took order and after a really long time managed to bring us another tables food. He then asked if he had even taken our order. When the food did come my husband ordered another drink which he watched the server carry around the room trying to remember what table to take... More

I was recently in Mac City for the Mustang Stampede and discovered Dixie Saloon. I've been to Mac City many times, by boat usually, and had never been to the Dixie. Very pleasantly surprised by the friendly atmosphere and good food. Best burger in a restaurant in a long time! We were staying on a boat in the municipal marina... More
