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.

I was finishing up a phone call as we walked in and my wife said table for two to the waitress that was going to seat us. She rudely says to my wife I don't help people that are on the phones referring to me and I wasn't even talking to her. Then she begins to tell the other customers... More

My father and I ate at Cunningham's on July 5th 2014 and had a less than desirable experience. I ordered a grilled cheese because let's face it, it's Mackinaw and Vegetarian Options are pretty limited. My father ordered a shrimp basket. My grilled cheese was alright (kinda hard to mess up) and my father said his shrimp basket was ok... More

We stopped in for lunch while shopping at the shoppes in Mac City. My husband and I shared a grilled whitefish dinner. We were not thrilled that there was an up charge for sharing a meal but we were more than happy with the quantity. I believe we got more Cole Slaw and fries than a regular meal and we... More
