Tiny but typical seaside restaurant, family own since 1948. Great food, no alcohol. great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. On Main street a block from the docks that take you to Mackinac Island.

We stopped into Cunninghams for a nice meal after a long drive up north. Checking the price list outside, Cunninghams is economical and has a decent variety. We were seated immediately and offered some refreshments. We both ordered pasties one with gravy and one without. The chicken pasties were served promptly and had a soft flaky crust with a firm...

It was a bit drizzly and cold so we stopped in for pie and coffee. Had coconut cream and blueberry pie. Very good. Prices are very fair as well.

By far the best home cooking in Mackinac City! A must stop for us every time we visit. From whitefish to pasties and the famous pies! Awesome!

I had breakfast there a couple of years ago and found the food to be average at best. I decided to give it another try and stopped for breakfast the other day. Ordered a ham and cheese omelet was pleasantly surprised this time. The food was piping hot, the portion generous and the service top notch.

We went for lunch Labor Day weekend and had pasties and homemade pie for dessert. Both were very good. The pasties were especially excellent. Have eaten at a lot of different pasties over the years and the flaky tasty crust made Cunningham's one of the best.

A family style restaurant without frills but good food. Their chicken pasties are wonderful, their shrimp basket a great value and the staff are all friendly and attentive.
