We are frequent visitors to Mackinaw as we have family there. Had never been to the Bridge View Diner so we suggested it for dinner. Our relatives were anxious to go so that was our first clue that the diner would be good. It was very busy, and we had a modest wait (Labor Day in Mackinaw is a zoo... More

Did Bridge Walk, needed place to get some breakfast grub. We were attracted by the 1968 Dodge Polara out front and sign touting World's Best Burger. After waiting outside behind a velvet rope, we began to wonder whether restaurant was really open. But then we were ushered in by our waitress. We had a short wait for pretty good food.

Also know as Lenny's Diner, the food was great and homemade. I ordered a veggie omelet that was really great tasting and filling. My hubby ordered bacon, eggs, toast and OJ which he had trouble finishing. This diner is a little out of the way, but still on the main drag. If you want a fresh homemade meal, this is... More

Contrary to other reviews this place is still open and if you miss at Mackinaw City you definitely need to check out lenses I had some sort of spinach omelet and I hate spinach this guy I cooked it to Perfection I would order it again

Burgers were good and made to order. Onion rings were great. The fountain Coke was exactly how you would expect it to be at a diner. Prices were good. Service was good. Definitely will stop here whenever I hit the tip of the mitten.

We went to this restaurant several years ago and it was excellent. Decided to return since we really liked it last time. It just wasn't the same as before. Took a really long time for the food and they seemed unorganized. Got a burger and just thought it was "ok". Probably won't return in the future.

Loved the home feel. Off the main drag and less noisy than a lot of places. Oldies music plays over the speakers. Looks like a whole in the wall, but the BEST burger and whitefish!

Small restaurant, with simple menu, but WOW, are their burgers delicious! The BLT was full of bacon and the hand breaded mushrooms were amazing!! They also serve a limited breakfast menu which we have yet to try, but dinner was very good. Takes a bit of time, though, because the food is cooked fresh to order, but the oldies music... More

We visited with four adults and two children. It was busy. We really like the charm of the place; many vintage items to look at. Much better than the same old chains at every exit. Service was comparable to the region. Not quick but friendly. I had the worlds best burger; well maybe not THE best but really good. Huge... More

We stopped for a quick bite here since it was close to I-75 to get off and on. World's Best Burger was greasy and sloppy and had nothing special on it at all. Price for 3 single cheeseburgers and two with side of fries and 3 glasses of water... $31.50 + tip. Burgers were super greasy. Extremely expensive for what... More
