Food ok.

Food was ok. About average but nothing to go out of your way for. The beer however was very cold - just the way I like it.

We we're attracted by the lights of the Dixie Saloon and walked across the street into a warm and welcoming classic log structure. We had just finished driving our snowmobiles... More

Stopped here for dinner...ordered a sirloin steak. Cooked just to my liking. This is a bar/grille atmosphere. Good drinks...very efficient wait staff. A little pricey, but then again, it's summer at a beachfront vacation area.

I've had dinner at Dixie Saloon twice in the last couple of months, and neither experience was very good. The food was mediocre and overpriced and the service spotty. Oddly, both times, our waitress was very attentive at the beginning of the meal, then literally disappeared once it was served. On the first occasion I waited so long that I... More

We just arrived for a night at the water park and wanted to just order in to our hotel. We had lunch there before and it was good so thought we would try it again. We ordered the fish and chips. It was absolutely terrible!! It was chewy, dry, had an awful flavor and was just yuck, not to mention... More

They were willing to make me food after the kitchen was closed because my family was hungry and they were the only place that was open

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.
