Nice little lunch spot. Friendly, efficient waiters. Food was good. We appreciated their protocols for Covid 19 with no fuss or hassle.

I don’t remember giving less than 20% on a tip in the last 10 years. This server (Danielle) with an attitude got $3 on a $50 tab. The Bloody Mary wasn’t drinkable and we returned the drink (the first time I’ve ever returned a drink)...and the server wouldn’t let us return the second one (ordered at the same time) because my fiancée choked down half but couldn’t finish it. The truffle fries were cold, the avocado toast had so much salt on it that I had to scrape the top layer off to make it edible. The server Danielle even came out to the street and yelled at us about the tip as we left. Tempting to speak to the manager but didn’t need a confrontation on vacation or in general. I rarely complain but great location with horrible food, drink, and the server made this the worst restaurant experience I can remember.More

2020 has been a challenging time for everyone. Mackinac Island businesses are struggling to serve visitors amid a worldwide pandemic despite supply and staff shortages. Employees are putting themselves at risk by working long hours 6-7 days a week. We are expressly grateful to those...More

The Bartenders were fun and informative. We just had drinks there but would absolutely go back again.

The food here was average and not as good as I expected. The BLT pizza we ordered was just ok and we ended up tossing the leftovers. My daughter’s chicken tenders were pretty good and extra crispy. They do have some really good mixed drinks...and a wide selection of beer. Our waiter was excellent, which is why I gave them 4 stars instead of 3.More

We stop annually for a late afternoon draft beer. We love the selection with many of our Michigan favorites. Our bartender knew of wives were not beer drinkers so he took great care to find a blend of ciders they liked...like a blend that taste...like apple pie. Great bartender..More

My wife and I had a really nice time in our visit tonight. We had the smoked whitefish for an appetizer and meatball pizza for dinner. The pizza was excellent and would absolutely recommend. The only reason I am giving this a 4 of 5...rating is because I felt we were rushed. We had a reservation for 8:30, but showed early. We got right in asc lol there were a lot of empty table, but one we got our food, I felt like we were rushed as far as getting our check and laying the bill. Still a really good experience, but ai would suggest limiting reservation times if need to close by a certain time.More

Great spot on Mackinac Island. Did not eat here, but for a drink it was outstanding. Great bartenders, very friendly. Perfect location as are most spots on the island. Will for sure go back again.

We ate here for the first time this trip, and we ended up eating here twice, once for dinner, then for lunch. The food was so good, prices are reasonable, and the server was outstanding. He was so funny, and made our dinner so entertaining.

Lots of choices to choose for drinks. Appetizers only in this area of the restaurant - but they are delicious! Dinners available in the area right next door.

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.
