We were recommended to try Seabiscuit Cafe for dinner, there was a 20 min wait for a table, and it was worth it! We had the fried macaroni as an app, it came out quickly and was fantastic. Everyone loved their meal, especially the whitefish...More

This was probably our favorite meal during our trip on the island. We ordered the fish and chips (with sweet potato fries) and the Southeastern Sandwich (I think) and they were both fantastic! We will definitely make this a part of all our Mackinac Island...More

I'm leaning on no, but only because I wasn't overly impressed with the food or service. Couldn't hurt to fire off an email to the restaurant, though...

Description
This popular Mackinac Island eatery features a celebratory horse theme starring the 1938 true life story of the famous champion thoroughbred, Seabiscuit. The former 1800's bank building was renovated to reveal the original brick walls and hardwood floors transforming it into one of Mackinac Island’s most popular watering holes. A unique and casual menu appropriately fits this cozy café. Seabiscuit fans rave about the deliciously fresh menu options. Discover your new favorite cocktail, the Mamosa. Open 7am until 2am serving breakfast, lunch, dinner, and creative cocktails.
