The food was blane and pathetic. Seriously, go down the street to keyholes bar. The owners of Dixie own half of Mackinaw... More

We go to Mackinaw every year and ate here once. We thought the food was average considering how much we paid.

The food was fantastic. I ordered a burger and my boyfriend ordered a steak, both were delicious. The staff were very friendly. We had a great view of the water. Overall it was a great dining experience. I would definitely return.

Bad feeling when we pulled up and the two kitchen "chefs" came out the back door, sat on the stoop and lit up ciggy butts. Nice tatoos and piercings, just saying...but shorts and t shirts during flu season? Anyway I put aside my misgivings and we went in... bad move. Place is about as clean as any greasy spoon and...

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.
