My mother and I recently travelled to Mackinac Island. We ate breakfast twice here and dinner once. Our meals were all cooked perfectly. The Thai crunch salad is something I have been craving since last season and it did not disappoint.

Loved coming here! It’s one of the most popular places on the island! A lot of the food seemed seafood related which was annoying but still had really good food. We went on a Friday & Saturday and it was packed and there was always...a wait from 30 mins to an hour and a half. It’s a good place for a night out drinking with friends or Lunch or dinner with your family. It’s definitely worth going and experiencing! Pictured below are their Italian lemon cake, soft pretzel sticks, the whitefish fingers and the $10 drink souvenir cup!More

Best restaurant on the island. Good burgers, awesome salads, great drinks, and fun atmosphere. They also have a nice back deck that overlooks the water and marina area.

Whether you are having dinner or drinks, the Pink Pony is a top choice. The food is great and there is a real variety. As an island employee, I always love the shrimp tacos and Rum Runners. The entertainment is great, especially when Myk RIse...is playing. Tell him Shelly sent you!More

Dragon berry Mojito’s on the deck. Yes please. On The Fourth of July we pulled up to the dock for about 10 minutes to use the restroom and suck down some dragon berry Mojito‘s before heading back out towards the straits to catch a beautiful...sunset.More
