Dinner

Typical cheese curds.. Not like MN state fair cheese curds. I was disappointed. Overpriced! Rotisserie Chicken was great. Healthy choice. Good flavor Girlfriend got a burger. fell apart very easily, too much work to actually eat it.

Sue was a pleasure to have waiting on us. We couldn't have had better service! The food was amazing and we enjoyed everything from the perch to the carrot cake! Thank you!

While camping in the area decided to have dinner at the Dixie Saloon. Our server, Danica, was very friendly and knowledgeable about the food and various beer on the menu. Really enjoyed the chicken wings that are supposed to be an appetizer but there was enough for a full meal. We sat upstairs in a booth and enjoyed the view... More

Danica is the best and most friendly waitress! We've had her the past few times. Order the ribs you can never go wrong. Friendly service!

Yes, the closest restaurant to the marina and nice water views. Just outside of Shepler's ferry landing. It was 60 outside and felt like 50 inside. It was freezing. I told the hostess, it's really cold in here and she answered, I know. Really? The service was friendly and good. The food not so much. I ordered the kid's size... More

Took the family and had a great experience. Dan O. was our server who knew the menu, gave recommendations and was very accommodating. Will definitely go back next time we are in Mackinaw City. Highly recommended!

We always enjoy stopping by the Dixie when in Mackinaw. Great food and great atmosphere. Our server, Sue H., was also very friendly and did a great job! Ask for Sue if you stop by!

Burgers were great, but don't get the salad. Greens are not fresh and the "grilled chicken" tasted and looked like it was microwaved with fake grill marks. Some pieces were cold and some were warm with black scorch marks. Fries were squishy, but the chips were wonderfully crisp and tasted homemade.

We have been to Mackinaw City many times and after discovering this restaurant the first trip it is our favorite for lunch, supper or a quick snack and a beer. The service personnel are the best, friendly and helpful. The food is always top notch but be warned ask your server about the size of the portions. We are seniors... More
