Our "final nite dinner" for every Mackinaw visit

We take annual family trips to Mackinaw and this is our "final nite dinner" for all of us. The grandkids even look forward to going.

This is a really cute restaurant, good location. The food, however, is just average. Definitely not what I was expecting.

The food was very good. Kind of pricey but large portions. Don't go if you are an animal lover because they have stuffed animals everywhere!

The food was quite good, but not exceptional. The decor is truly exceptional and we would certainly enjoy eating here again.

We all wanted pizza and had some of the best we've eaten...thin crust wood fired and we shared several individual ones with plenty to take with us. They were busy... More

The food was ok, prices are high for the quality of the food. They need a lager selection on the menu.

Our waiters name was Bryan and he was very friendly and attentive. His humor matched mine. This restaurant wasn't the normal restaurant I expected to find in this area, but it was truly... More

Decor conflicted with the Italian cuisine. Advertisements boasts only wood fired pizza in the area. Huge portions, we split a 12 inch personal mediocre pizza. Most customers took portions home. The crust and sauce was tasteless and the sausage was links cut up. The best part was the side salad - nice fresh crisp Romaine lettuce with cucumber slices, tomato,... More
