Nothing truly outstanding but nothing really wrong either with this place. The food was good and the beer was cold and waitress was friendly and efficient. Great building with fantastic views of the town as well.

The food was good same menu as the Irish pub next door. They give you free popcorn to tie you over while waiting for a seat. The kids liked the popcorn which made life easier for us while waiting!

The Dixie Saloon has a friendly and helpful staff. The atmosphere is really neat and the food is tasty. Dixie Saloon is a popular place to hang out when visiting Mackinac Island. They have late hours too.
