We liked it so much we went 2 out of 3 mornings on the island. Good selection of breakfast foods (breakfast served all day). Lunch items start at 11 am. Wait was very reasonable.

We went for lunch. I liked it because they serve breakfast all day. I got the island special. The pancakes were wonderful but bacon was tough and hash browns dark. The staff was busy. We got one refill before we left. Service was slow! My 13yrs old wanted ice cream but he did not want to wait forever! My husbands... More

We arrived on the island just after 11:00 a.m. and wandered up and down the main street searching for a restaurant that was still serving breakfast. I was surprised to learn that, of four dozen total restaurants on Mackinac Island, only two serve all day breakfast. And one of them was closed on Mondays, the day we happened to arrive.... More

The food was really good. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I got the chicken tenders but they barley gave you any. But it was good.

A decent meal at a fair price, given the location. Everything we ate on Mackinac Island came at a slight premium due to the location (totally understandable), but the food here was good, if unremarkable. It was nice to have the choice of lunch or breakfast options when dining. We'd try this again if we were in the area.

Our group has varying experience. Waffle was very ordinary, but eggs, pancakes, and skillets were good. Good place for kids who want pancakes
