Enjoyed some favorite beers, sunshine and a BBQ chicken pizza on the patio. Waiter was very good. Would make it a point to return next trip to the island!

5! My grilled tomahawk pork chop w/ apple cider butter sauce was delish! Tender and moist. Love that sauce! My husband's white fish, a new food for us, was good, too. Quick & efficient service, music was good but not too loud. That seems like...a simple thing, but so many restaurants ruin a night out with music you can't converse over. We highly recommend Mary's Bistro!More

Went there for a late lunch /early dinner after walking the entire circumference of the island (8.2 miles). Sat outside. Beautiful location. Service was prompt and courteous. Vegetarian options are limited. Got a margherita pizza and truffle fries. The portion of fries was massive. Reasonably...priced as well.More

We had dinner outside. I wasn't even hungry but had the fish and chips and ate most of my dish. I really enjoyed the setting and the menu was interesting. I would go back and try more when I'm actually hungry.

Excellent food and service. All kids meals are $10 no matter what you choose. They did not charge $5 for an extra plate but I would say the prices are at least $$ to $$$.

Great location, good food and friendly staff! A trifecta that welcomes you right to Mackinaw Island! We sat outside on the beautiful balcony overlooking the water and the weather was perfect to complete the scene. Our server Amy was friendly, polite and very knowledgeable. My...wife has some food allergies and Amy was kind enough to ask the chef about a few items to find my wife a meal she could enjoy. My wife had the burger and fries and loved it. My kids shared the grilled cheese and fries with some fresh green beans on the side. I had the pulled pork grilled cheese and it was incredible. The pulled pork was packed in the sandwich and the Munster cheese was a nice combo. Also the local beer was refreshing! We’d definitely come back on our next trip to Michigan.More

We were seated on the patio with a gorgeous harbor view. We saw otters playing in the water and watched the ferries come and go. Food was delicious. I especially enjoyed the chicken salad. Our server was friendly and attentive- he was the first to...spot and then point out the otters. Fun experience.More

Stopped in for a drink I had the tropical sangria, and my sister had the peach Bellini. Great bar atmosphere, or waitress was prompt with both drinks and bills.

Me and my husband went here for dinner. We were hoping to sit outside on the patio, however there were no openings. We were told the empty tables had reservations. I order chicken tenders and my husband order chicken pot pie. We also got drinks,...I got a glass of a draft cider and my husband ordered 2 Miller lights. Restaurant’s are over priced due to it being a tourist area. The half order of chicken tenders, coleslaw, and fries is $20 and then I got sweet potato fries which was an additional charge. The chicken pot pie was $23. The food was good and no complaints. Staff was friendly and our waitress checked on us multiple times.More

a. Don’t be fooled by the photographs of a pint glass on a porch. If you want to drink one of the beers on tap and sit outside, you will have to use a single-use disposable plastic glass. Counterintuitively, you CAN drink wine in a...fragile, stemmed glass on the deck. We have asked repeatedly why they require single-use plastic cups and are simply told that it is because it's “their policy”. Producing excessive amounts of plastic waste is blatantly ignoring the plastic crisis our planet is facing. How any business could do this, especially on an island where waste disposal is a particular challenge, is astonishing. Until Mary’s Bistro to revisits their policy, I will be taking my business elsewhere, and encourage others to do the same. There are plenty of other restaurants that do not use disposable, single use plastics in town, including ones next door and across the street.More

Protecting the environment is important to us, however, the number of pint glasses stolen from the outdoor patio has required us to move to plastic drinkware. Noone seems as interested in stealing wine glasses. We understand your disappointment and appreciate your feedback.

Ate lunch here TWICE (because the first time was so great) on a recent trip to the island. Wonderful customer service, beautiful view and delicious food! Wait time was accurate. They texted when our table was ready, which worked out great. Both times we were...seated by the friendly hostess at a shaded table on their outdoor deck with the most beautiful view of the water and the ferries coming/going. Very extensive beer/cider list and the food menu is available by scanning their QR code on the table. We enjoyed some up north/UP beers, pulled pork grilled cheese, whitefish, salad with grilled chicken, truffle fries. All were delicious and generous portions. The servers we had were friendly and attentive. (Note they have a decent size indoor dining room as well as a smaller bar area, so this would also be a great place for a eating during inclement weather.) We absolutely will eat here again when we return to the island!More

Mary's Bistro & Bayside BBQ are not pet-friendly. I recommend Ice House BBQ garden seating if you are looking for a dog friendly place to eat.
