Fun!

Went there for the Meet and Greet during the Pond Hockey Tourny. They were defiintely ready for a large crowd. The Grille was standing room only. Staff and Management were prepared! We had a table of 12, all the food came out at once, was hot and tasty! Our Server explained that she usually... read more

We recently stayed in St.Ignace for a hockey tournament and decided to eat a team diner at the Mackinac grill. I've been to restaurants before where my meal was a little sub par and for the most part I'm pretty forgiving. Not everything on the menu will always be a house specialty or maybe the meal was not one of... More

We came on a weekday in the summer. The place wasn't that busy and were seatd outside. The view was great but that was about it. Our waiter kept forgetting about our drinks until one of our party members went to the bar and got them for ourselves. Our group was only 7 but our order came out in two... More

Really nice restaurant/bar looking directly on the water and Mackinaw bridge. Just beautiful. The staff is super friendly, the price is right, and the food is outstanding. And their Sunday brunch was out of this world. It was only 7 or 8 bucks, worth every penny and then some.

We went to the Mackinac Grill for a late lunch. We were the only customers for a few minutes, then a few other people arrived. I had the jerk turkey burger with coleslaw, the sauce was good the burger was a processed frozen one to my mind, the coleslaw was tasty. Husband had the Cobb Salad and it was fine.... More

We ate here twice during our travels through the UP. Great burgers that were cooked to order. I believe the one burger was called The Might Mac...? It was loaded with bacon and Mac&Cheese! Who doesn't love a local place that offers great craft beers as well! The pier is right outside, after eating take a stroll along the pier.

My father in law's "Poorman's Whitefish" (whitefish and vegetables steamed in foil), was served to the next table by mistake. After taking a few bites the woman complained. The server then took the platter, brought it to my father in-law, and asked if he still wanted it since the woman had only eaten "a few mushrooms!"

Come here just about every time I go to St Ignace, (every month but March 2014 since November 2013), and they serve up a melt in your mouth White fish plank dinner complete with potatoes and veggies on the plank, and their Down and Dirty Martini is the best ever. Seasonal patio seating or dine in. Just look for the... More

They have great homemade soups and sandwiches we didn't try any large dinner items as we had a large lunch. The wait staff were very attentive.
