We stopped in for supper at the Ice House. The food was OK Our waiter seemed to be the manager, and he was more interested in solving a billing problem with his waitresses than making sure his customers were satisfied. I felt sorry for the customers of the waitresses he was dealing with, since he kept them several minutes trying... More

Food. Service. Atmosphere. All FABULOUS! We had a party of 11 and 3 dogs. We were treated great and had a really tasty lunch after biking around the whole island. Will definitely go back, and even thinking of staying at the hotel next time.

Tucked away behind the Island House Hotel, this restaurant offers a perfect retreat for lunch away from busy Main Street. I've been there three times this season and really enjoyed the salmon sandwich, spinach salad and grilled cheese.

This place is tucked away behind the Island House Hotel. Very small and very casual. A great place for lunch or an early dinner as they close at 8:00 pm. They have a number of really good sandwiches and the sweet potato fries are worth the trip to this restaurant.

My husband and I recently took a day trip to Mackinac Island with our dog. We were looking for a dog friendly restaurant for lunch so we stopped at the visitor information booth. We were told to try The Icehouse and I'm so glad we were given this recommendation. We were given directions because it is a little hard to... More

It's kind of like a mini-Chili's or TGI Friday's. Quick service and hot food. Located next to the pool room, behind the hotel.

Granted, we had a party of 9, but it shouldn't have taken so long to be served. Small kitchen or not, if you're going to offer a reasonable sized menu and seating - inside as well as outside - for a couple dozen people each, then you should have an efficient kitchen for lunch service. Food was good, but I... More
