The Yankee Rebel was suggested to us by seasoned Island visitors and they were right. Great food, nice place, bustling wait staff, and all was excellent.

We had a lunch and dinner at Yankee Rebel. The food was excellent and it was nice to get a meal with something other than fries. Both cases, the service was excellent. The dinner plate choices were great and I went with the pot roast....It was like dinner at home - which is great when you are traveling and choices don't lean that way. The roast was fork tender and well seasoned. For me, it was just a great experience on a super busy tourist area.More

The server was extremely rude. He never brought refills. The food was extremely overpriced. Paid $14 for 4 small chicken tenders and fries. Very disappointed

The Yankee Rebel Tavern has gourmet food and service at reasonable prices. It is the best value on Mackinac Island!

My wife and I love pub food and nothing to fancy. We decided to come here based off of there menu shown on trip advisor. When we got there the actual menu was reduced by about 25% and every meal was $2 or $3 more...than listed on trip advisor. The food was just ok and the services was a little off as well. Basically just an ok meal. We wish we had went somewhere else on the island.More

Right across from our B&B this was our 1st stop on the island. It was not busy but we were there in the late afternoon so that was expected. Good food, great service!

We loved the steak bites and the beer when we stopped here for happy hour. The bartender was outstanding. The atmosphere is relaxed and fun.

It was our last nigh and we had tried the restaurant in the area and this was the best! Even the restaurant that was supposed to be a go to, had bad service and was loud and busy, BUT THIS RESTAURANT, was relaxing and comfortable,...( we got there as soon as they opened too, don’t know what it would be like later). Lovely service and the white fish was outstanding as well as their salad. Try their pistachio encrusted white fish, you won’t be disappointed!More

Food was good but portions were not that large for what it cost. Service was good too. This was recommended by our carriage tour guide who said we might get some bread if we mention his name. We didn't get any

We stopped in for a casual dinner. The pot roast was amazing (huge portion), and the prime rib sandwich was great. Definitely a great spot for dinner.
