The food was plentiful and delicious. There was a salad bar, soup, delicious local white fish, shrimp, and home grown vegetables. The service was prompt and the restaurant was comfortable and cozy.

The menu was extremely overpriced for the quality of the food and service. I have never submitted a comment but this experience really ruined my evening.

We just completed a 4 day vacation in Mackinac City and a local merchant recommended we eat at Neath the Birches on our last night. The location was beautiful and everything on the menu looked delicious. The host who greeted us was warm and gracious. This dining experience was definitely headed in the right direction. Sadly, our server treated our... More

We took 60 travelers to Neath the Birches and the food and service was excellent. Everything was prepared for our arrival and the whitefish and cod on the buffet line were exceptional but everything was wonderful. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We had our anniversary dinner here tonight. I must admit, when we pulled into the parking lot, I was not impressed. But that was the last time. Our waitress Char was fabulous, very friendly and attentive. In fact, we asked about buying some of their homemade cheese spread to take home and this dear lady chased us down as we... More

We stopped on a Sunday and were the only people eating. Waitress never smiled and made us feel unwelcomed. Prime Rib was tasteless and tough. Ribs were OK but old, we guessed from a previous day. Salad bar was the only good thing we experienced. My wife especially enjoyed the apple salad.

Paul C, I am glad you enjoyed the Salad Bar, we do have the nicest in town. If you had let the staff know you were unhappy, they would have made you something else. If I am in a restaurant and I don't like the food I normally tell the staff at the restaurant, I don't wait till I get... More

We went here in June to celebrate our anniversary; it was my parents' 50th and our 2nd. We had a great meal and wonderful service. All the members of staff stopped by to wish us a happy anniversary and the owner comped dessert for all hour of us.
