The fish was outstanding! I would eat there again. The only reason it get the highest rating was the gentleman who seated us was not very friendly.

Food was very good, and the Grill room was very busy. Thankfully another couple on our trip where willing to share their table.

My wife and I have dined at virtually every restaurant on the island and I still like coming back to the 1852 Grill Room the most. They have great food and the view is unbeatable.

For the first night, I had the plank baked white fish, and it was excellent. Another night, I had the wild salmon from Scotland, and it, too, was excellent.

We asked for a table near the front window and weren't disappointed. We sat facing the marina/downtown and watched the sunset as we enjoyed our wine and appetizer. We shared a wonderful bottle of a Michigan Riesling (semi-dry) with the crab cakes. The crab cakes...More

We had a last minute dinner at this restaurant, and I'm so glad we did! The food is amazing - there wasn't anything we didn't like. The bill was pretty high, but I think it was worth it!

Probably the best food on the island. 4 stars because it's Mackinac Island. If it was San Francisco, NYC, Chicago, etc, it would be average.

We ate breakfast here as it was included with our room. The prices where high and idk if I'd have ate there had it not been free. But the food was good, we had the buffet and it had a large variety.

The service was wonderful. The staff was friendly and helpful especially Molly. The view was awesome. The food was good hotel food with lots of choices. The chef even made gluten free French toast for me which wasn't even on the menu.
