Try the Pot Roast. It's a true Yankee tradition. The service is great and the staff make you feel like family. There's something for all tastes. Just like eating in your favorite family restaurant. Nice atmosphere, great food and reasonable prices. A real family restaurant.

Good food but pretty slow service when it wasn't that busy. Went mid afternoon. Standard American fare.

Four of us ate here, and we all loved our food. Great service. This place is bigger than it looks from the outside. I would recommend the chicken in puff pastry.

The Yankee Rebel was our favorite lunch spot. The food was good and we enjoyed our talk with hostess, Nikki from Jamaica.

My wife and I had dinner at the Yankee Rebel during a recent visit to Mackinac Island. Our server was attentive and efficient, bringing our pre-meal drinks quickly and speaking to / advising us on our main course choices. My wife opted for the Pot Roast and I went for the Chicken Pastry Puff. Both arrived after approximately 30 minutes,... More

My kids (10, 9 & 6) picked this restaurant because of the variety on the kids menu - choices like shrimp skewers & steak - which was a nice break from most other places. The service was great, the food was great and the experience was fabulous. Next time on the island we will return for sure!

The food and service at this restaurant was great. It may not have the views of some of the other restaurants, but the delicious food more than makes up for the lack of lake view. Amanda our waitress was great and made my friend's birthday special. Thanks!

We have been to the island a good number of times, but have never visited the Yankee Rebel until this most recent time. The menu had lots of choices with great pot roast and prime rib. Portions were plentiful, and service was efficient and friendly.

This is the place we chose for our daughter's engagement dinner. Not cheap, but a better value than most upscale reataurants, on Mackinac Island. Everything is excellent, the bread basket is irresistible (and warm) and great service.

Nice dinner, cordial, friendly helpful wait staff including bar tender. Food was ample and well prepared; reasonably priced; not particularly memorable but overall quite satisfactory.

Thank rhale53
