Dropped dirty plates on granddaughter lap as they walked by never offered to pay for her food or an apology . They also dropped ice cream off a women's pie on the table and. The waitress just scooped it off the table and put it back on her pie . Nasty

We wanted to have some dessert, and someone told us that Cunningham's had good pie. Unfortunately, it was obvious that our waitress (an older woman who looked/acted like an owner) was more interested in rushing us so we'd leave than she was in actually serving us.

My family and I stopped in Cunningham's for supper our first night in Mackinaw City. Great service and food. You must try the Chicken Pastie with gravy. They also offer a wide selection of homemade pies.

We were here for lunch. We had the clam chowder which was just okay. The roasts beef pastie was good. The best thing we are was the cherry pie and lemon meringue pie.
