We have traveled to Mackinac several times and always eat dinner at the Yankee Rebel. They have the best pot roast in the world!

We were looking for a place to have a quick & good lunch before our Gough private carriage tour & this was good. Alot of the restaurants don't open until 12noon, but we needed to be done by then. So a great find for time & favor!

We just happened upon this restaurant one day and it just felt homey! Had a drink at the bar and decided to stay for dinner. The atmosphere was perfect and the food was very good. Would definitely come back if in the area.

The atmosphere is like a pub/sportsbar meets fine dining if you can picture that. It had an old feel trussed up in modern eveningwear. The room is relaxed and unpretentious. The food was a 5 out of 5 serving up straight Comfort food at affordable prices. My lovely wife had the chicken stew wrapped in pastry and I had the... More

Went there for a beer after a long day of walking the island. The craft beers were good and the atmosphere was friendly.

We decided to try this restaurant on a cold and rainy evening. We were very happy with our choice. The fire was burning in the fireplace, the service was excellent and the food was very good. We had the salmon with vegetables and rice and the Chicken Puff Pastry. They also brought warm rolls and our drinks right away. The... More

Good, not great, standard American food at the Yankee Rebel about par for the course in Mackinac where junk food offerings abound despite the creative menu prose.

The decor is so hokey and straight out of the worst of the 1970's. The food is really good, the service was excellent, but the mussels are the stand-out here. Some of the best I have ever had. Flavorful , meaty (not tiny), and cooked perfectly - not gritty. Make a trip here just for these.

We were looking for a place that had take out because we had our toddler in the stroller with us. We were worried that we would have the same problem we ran into when trying to get dinner at Seabiscuit Cafe: no strollers or babies allowed. I saw that Yankee Rebel had a take out menu (the same as the... More

I have been the Yankee Rebel three times before this visit and was very much looking forward to going again. The previous three times I'd gotten the Spinach, Chicken and Penne salad as I've been obsessed with it since my first visit. This time I wanted something without a heavy dressing as I was doing a race the next day... More
