Basic lunch food. I only gave it a 3 stars because the food didn't wow me. It's exactly what you'd expect from a pub/bar atmosphere. The service was good. Everything was good but nothing that really wowed me. I had the Po' boy. The flavor...More

We grabbed lunch on our last day in the island. The service was friendly but definitely a bit slow. We ordered burgers. They Derby burger was flavorful and a large portion! Fun place to stop for a bite.

I visit every time I go to Mackinac Island. I love the food, especially their sweet potato fries! On my most recent trip, our waitress was really great! Give them a try!

Our family enjoyed this restaurant. It looks somewhat like an upscale pub inside with dark wood and two bar areas. Everything we ordered from the whitefish Reuben to a chicken dish was good. The sweet potato fries another reviewer recommended were tasty. The kids all...More

Kids Mac and cheese looked like boxed which never makes the $7 price tag seem reasonable. The adult dishes were good but nothing rave-worthy.

Specialty drinks and sandwich are their mainstay items. Price was great and it's just a fun little joint. I did see in the paper that it is for sale. I would love to own it!!

This is a must visit. The owner greeted and seated us and chatted us up. The waitstaff was equally friendly. The restaurant was clean and we'll decorated. And the best part of course was the meal. We had breakfast and it was not a disappointment....More

Can you accommodate a low sodium meal for my father? (Fish or beef are good, just no seasoning or sauces.)

This fabulous Mackinac Island eatery features an appropriate horse theme from the 1938 true life story of the famous horse, Seabiscuit. A great deal of care was taken to restore the original brick surfaces, hardwood floors and new furnishings have transformed the 1800’s bank building into a cozy, comfortable restaurant.

An excellent casual menu appropriately fits this charming place. Seabiscuit fans rave about the Lobster Roll, Deep Fried Macaroni Balls, Guinness Cheese Crock, Whitefish Chowder And Warm Apple Carrot Cake. Top it off with a Manmosa, a mango infused vodka with champagne.

A fine wine selection is available along with a full bar so stop in for an afternoon cocktail or stay for the evening sipping your favorite martini.
