Great food choices and despite the wait times - they were efficient to get us seated. Our server was a bit "forgetful" and didn't write down our orders then got both of them wrong. It was corrected but would have been nice to have it...right on the first go round.More

Food was awesome and service was wonderful. We had the fish and chips. Meal was delicious and filling. They had a full bar. Enjoyed seeing the Seabiscuit decor. Pricing was very reasonable. Full bar and great location in the middle of Main Street shopping area.

Food was delicious and came out quick! They didn’t have a ton of options but the breakfast sandwich and eggs Benedict were very satisfying!

Great breakfast after a very short wait. A phone call tells you your table is ready. We enjoyed omelette and bacon and eggs and everything was good. The bacon really is special/ not sure what they add but you must order some!! Attentive staff. Cozy...but covid compliant atmosphere.More

First time on Mackinac Is and I used TA to pick my restaurants. Hubby and I ate at Seabiscuit for lunch and it was memorable. The manager shared that they only had been open 2 weeks due to COVID related delays in opening. If you...get a chance to go yet this season, do it! I had the nachos (yum) and husband had the chili. They are challenged with the online ordering system but be patient with them! It’s worth the wait.More

Came in alone last fall (solo trip) and sat at the bar. The bartender was very friendly and chatted with me quite a bit. The food was delicious. The Painted Pony Macaroni (fried mac and cheese!) is quite possibly the most heavenly thing I've ever...eaten.More

It was our first visit to the Seabiscuit. We ate our “last lunch” on the island before heading home. It was so good and so filling! The restaurant has a great, fun atmosphere; it was pretty busy that day but we were well taken care...of and didn’t have to wait at all...fast and friendly service! I look forward to coming back!More

My friend and I stopped to have lunch and drinks. Place was very busy but they found us a spot at the bar. Staff was friendly and attentive even duing the busy time! I would return. We had the lamb meatballs and the portabello burger....Easy stop on the main street in Mackinac.More

Enjoyed a great meal and the staff is friendly. It wasn't busy thank goodness, weather outside was terrible and we just wanted to kick back and relax after a day of walking all over the place. We were not disappointed with the food, the service,...or the atmosphere. Would definitely eat here again.More
