Good fudge, unfriendly staff

Perhaps because it was the end of the season, folks were ready to go home. They were not at all friendly.

My family and I visited Mackinac Island again this year. This time we had the kids with us, including our young friend from Paris, France, who had never tasted fudge before. There are many places that make and sell fudge on the island, but we chose Ryba's because we watched the men making fudge in the shop window. We chose... More

I was tired of eating the overly sweet fudge. Ryba's was a delight. With their bright pink decor they are hard to miss. I'd have to say their vegan fudge was better than any of the other fudges. We sampled fudges in just about every store before we came to this conclusion. Their sugarfree fudge was a close second. FYI... More

Definitely the smoothest and most delicious fudge on the planet. Service was impeccable. It should be the first and last place you visit on the island. My girlfriend has been to the island many times and had told me it was the best. Now I know for myself.

Absolutely delicious. Still missing the amazing taste of the turtle fudge. Also, the maple pecan one is a yumsies-heaven too!

This place is the best because their fudge is very creamy and melty, like a truffle. It does not have the texture of crunching on sugar crystals. Loved it.

Busy, like most of Main Street. But the Oreo fudge is SO good it's worth the extra cost for something they consider 'gourmet' And the fudge being prepared on the marble slabs was a show our daughter just had to stay to watch. But the staff downstate at Frankenmuth Fudge are more interactive and pleasant toward their audience. Oh well,... More

We decided to splurge and pay for the inordinately expensive fudge that is offered on Mackinac Island. Never before have we paid so much for fudge! All the shops are pretty much equally as expensive as the others. The service at Ryba's was friendly and helpful. There was a special for 3 slices in a box, but when we began... More
