Could've been better

The view of the lake was beautiful and the good food definitely made up for the poor service. We walked into the door, waited patiently to be seated and counted about five wait staff looking right at us and walking on by without asking if we had been waited on. After 5-10 minutes, someone, a... read more

This restaurant was recommended to us, however we were so disappointed in the food, we would not return. We arrived around 9:30pm Thursday for dinner. After a short wait, we were seated inside. Our server was friendly but not very experienced. She did not know any of the beer served on tap and needed to go and check on each... More

The restaurant was in overload mode, could not handle the seasonal rush. There was one person in the front seating people and there was no system for seating she had no idea what was available. The waitress basically ignored us for the first 20 min, then the food came out ok but the white fish was dry on the maple... More

Very busy, service was a little slow, but the waitress was very busy so we understood. Husband had planked salmon...he loved it. My ribs were very good! Dessert was fabulous! Lava cake or something similar.

Not good at all, the taste of all of our food was bland. The restaurant had a great setting right on the water. But it's pricey so just be prepared to at least take your time and look at the menu 1st.

Subpar service. Terrible food. Really really bad food. We are not picky folk. But it was so bad I felt the need to warm people.

Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. It is nice to eat in a restaurant with a view of the lake, and the weather was suitable for eating on the deck in the back. The steamed shrimp appetizer was perfectly cooked, but the rest of our food tasted like frozen food from Costco.

Food was excellent, service was a bit slow. The view is great as it's right on the water and close to the marina for great night walking.

We arrived for a late dinner but this place was still bustling on a Thursday night. We ordered 2 entrees that were from the House Specialties section of the menu. The Pastys were so chewy we could hardly break through the crust. It was as if they had been sitting under a heat lamp for hours. The dish included a... More

Before leaving the UP I wanted to make sure my family tasted a pasty. We were looking for a restaurant close to the Straits State Park where we were camping and the campground staff heartily recommended Mackinac Grille. We ordered one beef pasty to go and staff happily took our order. We were treated well. But the best part? An... More
