If someone coming to green bay asked me where to eat i would have to vote for mackinaws. It is special in that it was designed by a local family and it is beautiful; ' The food is outstanding

Your recommendation is greatly appreciated! Attracting new customers can be difficult but word of mouth is definitely a powerful tool. Our family ties to this building run very deep, from the wood used to construct Mackinaws (harvested from my Grandfather's tree farm), vintage ski equipment and photos, etc. We are also in the process of redecorating the interior so customer...

Our Buffalo Burger is definitely one of our most popular-selling items... if your husband is adventurous we also have a dinner feature on Saturday's that is BBQ Buffalo Ribs and BBQ Chicken with 2 sides for $18.99. And yes, I definitely agree with your choice of the Tuscany. The tomato aioli is a... More

Stopped in for lunch in the middle of doing some errands with the wife.... Initially planned to order a burger or salad, but the special caught our attention... BBQ beef brisket sandwich with fries, chips or slaw. My wife is not a huge fan of BBQ but it sounded great and the waitress said other people that ordered it were... More

I had the special (chicken and ribs) and my husband had a full rack of ribs. Both dinners tasted good. The atmosphere is nice (Northern Wisconsin-ish) with numerous fireplaces. We would eat here again.

I am glad you were adventurous and ordered the Buffalo Ribs and BBQ chicken, it is definitely a crowd favorite, and helps support a local Bison and Elk Farm.

We visited today, Sat. 12/28/13 @ 3:40 p.m. after a movie. The restaurant was not busy. We seated ourselves as requested by a sign at the door. Our server arrived, was attentive & took our order. After 35 minutes we still hadn't received our food which was 2 simple perch sandwiches. We had to chase down the server to ask... More

Mackinaw's Grill is a locally-owned restaurant with a north woods atmosphere -- log walls, mounted deer heads and bear skins, etc. The menu has the standard salads, burger and sandwiches, along with some unusual dishes like elk strogonoff. (It was surprisingly tender!) Portions are generous. When one of our party had to send her steak sandwich back because it was... More

I have visited Mackinaw's for lunch and found it very pleasant. However, I picked Mackinaw's for my birthday dinner with my family. We had to wait to be seated which was not a long wait at all. We were seated at a booth and it was very chilly. I had to put my coat around my shoulders to keep warm.... More

Unfortunately, the proper steps were not taken to avoid or rectify this situation. Please know that we take this very seriously and place great emphasis on customer service... More

There was so much to like about Mackinaw's! The food was fantastic! I went there 3 times over this past weekend and twice I got the 10 oz filet mignon. It is a bit expensive at 32.99 but let me tell you... in a word, outstanding! The cheese curds were absolutely fantastic as well. They also have a great selection... More

I'm not sure if you met myself or my father but either way, thank you! All of our steaks are Certified Angus Beef and are hand-trimmed by our head chef. The filet is definitely a top-seller and I can see why you would order it twice! As far as drinking goes, we try to keep a good mix of local... More

Love the atmosphere. Everyone is always so friendly and helpful. I have had a snafu with an order but when I brought it to their attention the customer service was always OUTSTANDING! One of my favorite places to go out in Green Bay. I'll always go there because of the atmosphere, food and drink selection.
