A neat place for a gathering of friends

Last Thursday night 12 of my snowmobiling friends and I drove to Mackinaw City for dinner. The Dixie Saloon was a great choice.

The food here is pretty average, but walking inside the place you feel like you're in a log cabin! Easy place to get food, especially in the winter when most everything else is shut down.

We dine at Dixie Saloon a couple times a year on our way to the UP. Great menu selection and Heather is a great bartender and server.

Not much dining choice in Mackinaw City in late November. Ok if you like large brew pub party atmosphere. My dinner was cold and I had to walk back to the kitchen to request microwave reheat.

Went upstairs and possibly better service on main level. Waitress looked pretty worn out by the time we left More expensive than anticipated. Food was nothing special so don't expect to return

Love the ambiance. Great Lake view. Friendly staff. Good food. The only food joint open this time of year but that didn't matter - I'd come here again even in the summer. Nice place!

We pulled into the Dixie to watch a game. Staff was fast, friendly, and informed on the menu. Food was a little pricey, but the atmosphere and enjoyment justified it. Thank you
