On our last morning on Mackinac Island, we had breakfast. It's diner type seating, and ice cream is served as well. The food and service were great.

When you go to a pancake house, you should expect good pancakes and that’s not the case here. The pancakes tasted like they came from a supermarket box mix - so disappointing. The restaurant space was small, cramped, and noisy and the service slow. Except...for the lack of options, I don’t see why you would eat here unless you want an over priced, low quality breakfast.More

Yummy breakfast on the island! The menu had a variety of options and we all enjoyed our meals, including the regular pancakes, blueberry pancakes, breakfast burrito, and waffle. One person in our group did not like the bacon but the other one did like the...thicker cut bacon. The service was good too.More

Seated immediately, but there were only two tables still available when we sat down for an early breakfast. Food portions were good, and well worth the value.

Our family of 4 came for breakfast on a Saturday morning. We were told the wait would be 20 minutes, but we were seated in less than 10. We all enjoyed standard breakfast fare - eggs, hash browns, chocolate chip pancakes, breakfast burrito, chilaquiles -...and our server was able to substitute fresh berries for breakfast meat. The food was very good, if not exceptional, and we’d eat there again if we have the good fortune to return to the island.More

This was good food and appropriately priced for the quality. We had the breakfast burrito and biscuits w/eggs & gravely. Both were winners! OJ was even good. Nothing fancy, but great service. We will be back!!!

This place was very busy but we were seated within the projected time and there were benches to sit on while we waited. The service was good. They have breakfast all day, pancakes, waffles, French toast, eggs and hash, also lunch and ice cream. The...giant cinnamon roll is not worth the price, but everything else was. I’d go back.More

When you get to the island, stop by the Pancake House and enjoy family owned and operated quality home cooking at its best. The service is friendly, and they always put the customer first. This is a must do on the island.

Pancake House does not take reservations. If you're looking for a restaurant on Mackinac Island that takes reservations try Mary's Bistro Draught House, 1852 Grill Room, and Ice House BBQ.
