It was absolutely terrible!! It was chewy, dry, had an awful flavor and was just yuck, not to mention... More

My husband and I have eaten here a few times when we have passed through Mackinaw City. We were just there a couple weeks ago with our children and grandchildren. We were there on a Saturday night and it was busy as it is one of the few places in town that is open. The bartender was not very personable.... More

The place was packed, no where to really stand and wait inside. We didn't wait outside. It was October and cold and rainy. The service and food were good. Would go back again.

This was the only thing open when my hockey teammates and I arrived in Mackinaw city for the Labatt Pond Hockey Championship this past weekend. I knew that Mackinaw was a seasonal tourist city, but almost everything was closed by 9 pm. The atmosphere of the restaurant was nice and the staff was prompt. The grill was closing so we... More

In town just for the night & going to the Island tomorrow. The Dixie Saloon looked interesting so we stopped for a drink at the bar. It was lively so we decided to dine there. Got a table upstairs. I had the potato encrusted whitefish & my sister had the potato encrusted walleye (the better fish of the 2). We... More
