“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

Food and atmosphere good. Burger a bit pricey. Walked right in, got service right away. Greeter at the door was his cute senior lady. I felt like grandma was there.

“Perfection in Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

We stopped here based on a recommendation from the staff at a hotel in Marquette. We were told the Pony Macaroni was "to die for." The four of us shared an order and it was delicious! The kids split a Monte Cristo, my husband had the steak sandwich and I ordered the Mackinac chicken salad sandwich. Everything was excellent. The servers were attentive and quick to bring refills. It is on the small side, so we were warned there may be a wait. However, we were there around 8:30 in the evening and walked right in. This is definitely a must stop when visiting the island.

“Great service; fish was average”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Our host was great. I may have just ordered the wrong entree. The whitefish filet on sweet potato fries was alright. Probably would visit this place again but would order something different.
