Your options in Mackinaw City in November are going to be limited. This was a nice find since it was near the water and had a view across to Mackinac Island. The service was find and the homemade chips made an average lunch a bit nicer. This is not a place to go for something incredibly different but it's a... More

This place has a neat atmosphere, however, it is lacking everywhere else. All the fixtures and beams are very dusty, dirty and covered in cobwebs. The windows are dirty. We ordered the spinach dip and it was was terrible and we had to send it back, it was crusty on the top and watery. The fish is supposed to be... More

Well we have eaten here over the last several years. Atmosphere is great. Well this year I had the pound of fish and my wife a salad. The fish was not even close to what we had the first time we came here. Like it was frozen and old. We were in earlier for a drink and to watch a... More

We had fish and chips- according to menu is a top seller. Horrible, soggy fish. Cheeseburgers below avg. Didn't even melt the cheese. Just put a slice of prepackaged cheese on top. Overpriced. $71 for 2 cheesburgers, 2 fish and chips. No alcohol. Service was not great even though it was not busy. I would not recommend and will never... More

Not much open in the town late in the year. This place has good food, good service, good brews, and good up north atmosphere. Have been here numerous time and always the same. Had my white fish Cajun this time was great

We have eaten here before and thought we would give it another try. We were here at the end of October so there were not many restaurants to choose from. Our food was cold and the waitstaff was very unfriendly. It was halloween and they were all dressed up. I guess when you don't order drinks and you are there... More
