Clean restaurant. Very good waiter. Friendly, attentive and knowledgeable about gluten free needs. The only thing was that it was a little pricey in relation to the portions you received. Overall a good place.

I love this restaurant and always eat there at least once when I'm on the Island. The pot roast is tender and delicious, the ambience charming and the wait staff was attentive. One of my favorite places to eat on Mackinac Island.

Our first meal on the Island. Great fare. Husband had the pot roast and I had the pistachio crusted fish. Both excellent. Wait staff was local, so we learned a lot about the island.
