Service was friendly and prompt. We stopped in for a late night drink. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal. We were especially impressed at how centrally located the Sea Biscuit was to our main street hotel.

Service was fast and friendly. The food was delicious! Try their pasties, a Northern Michigan tradition!

I think we hit at the perfect time. Greeted by friendly staff and right into a corner booth for 5. Something for everyone. Waitress was very nice and helpful with tourist questions. Good was good...nothing real special.

Came in 10 minutes before late night and the server who greeted, Ren, told me the kitchen would still accommodate both menus for me. Ended up ordering the late night food and some cheese curds? The order literally took 15 minutes and I had a full soda in hand at all times, Ren said she put silverware and ketchup and... More

We visited on a Thursday afternoon in late August. We only had to wait about 5 minutes for a table--it's a small place, so I imagine waits can be long at peak times. The service was good. The food was relatively average. Not bad by any means, but (as is common in tourist spots) not memorable. My salad was not... More

Food and drinks were good. Service was quick and friendly. Great Bloody Mary. The restaurant was clean and nice. We would definitely eat her again.

The Seabiscuit Cafe was a great start to our morning on the Island! We enjoyed it so much the 1st day, we came back for a repeat the 2nd day. The Old Smokehouse with their Hickory Molasses Bacon, the Egg & Toasted Muffin (also with the Hickory Bacon) and the Breakfast Wrap were all great choices for us! We couldn't... More

We ate here based on review on Trip Advisor. I had a French dip and was extremely disappointed. It was very dry with no flavor. I had an excellent one at Pink Pony a couple days earlier so it was even more of a disappointment. My husband had a white fish rueben and really enjoyed it. So at least one... More

Pretty busy for dinner, the wait is about 10 minutes but worth the wait. I recommend the Guinness Cheese Dip as an appetizer. The service was phenomenal both servers and host. Great food.

We were hungry and island was crowded so we stepped in here for a bite. We had bartender as our server and he wasn't too enthusiastic about it. Out food was decent and it was large portions but you just felt unwelcome and like "a number".
