Don't let the exterior fool you. The dining area had a nice, simple, nautical theme. It was clean and the servers were extremely friendly and helpful. The menu is mostly American with a few standard Italian and Mexican favorites, but the quality was exceptional. The prices were typical of the area $10-15.

Located right across the street from the Arnold Ferry Mackinaw Island departure point this is a great place to have wine and bar food if you have an hour or so. We just missed a ferry and went in for some beer and wine. The bartender is the friendliest and most knowledgeable you will find, the locals are really nice... More

The inside of the rooms were brand new and the staff were very friendly. Overall the exterior was very worn and the common areas showed a lot of wear and tear. I would visit again because the rooms were clean and the staff was so eager to please. I did not try the restaurant. If you can score a room... More

Awesome food and great service! The chicken is amazing, so is the potato bacon soup! We didn't stay at the inn, we just stopped in for dinner. The staff was super nice and fast. I looked up the info for the inn, for our next trip and I love how they decorated the rooms. We are definitely staying here next... More

This is the GEM you're looking for in Mackinaw City. You can walk to the ferry from your room. Quiet, clean and comfortable place, that's been recently updated through out. There is a full service restaurant, with the occasional breakfast buffet! New updated rooms, so you will sleep well! They have a limited amount of rooms, which what makes this... More

After driving all over Mackinaw City looking for a place for breakfast we discovered Embers. It seems that every restaurant in Mackinaw City (besides Embers) does not open until 7:30 am. This is a problem for those of us get up earlier than that. Enter Embers. Clean, friendly and opens at 7:00 am. The fried Egg Sandwich with Bacon I... More

Wanted to try out their Fire Grilled Pizza. It was pretty good , nothing special. The people running the place were very nice. At one point they washed the table behind us and used sour cleaning water. That was very disgusting , but the smell didn't last too long. A family came in before the smell dried up and left... More

Loved the way the restaurant was set up. The food was fabulous. Our server Marnie went about and beyond her duties. If she saw us walking up to the door she would open it for us and greet us with a big smile. We didn't stay at the Inn because we already had another one booked. We are looking forward... More

This place has new owners and they are doing a fabulous job! The entire place has been revamped, from new furniture in the rooms to an all new menu in the restaurant. Everyone there is so friendly and welcoming. This has been our go-to spot for years, and it will continue to be the only place we stay when we... More

I ordered the beer battered whitefish, my wife ordered the sirloin and my daughter ordered the fish & chips. We were all very happy with the quality and portion size of our meals. Also a hi five to our waitress Rhiannan, who did an excellent job making sure we had everything we needed for a very good dining experience. We... More
