Everytime I am on Mackinaw City, I eat here. My fav is the 2 piece whitefish meal with fries, cole slaw and two hush puppies. Owner and staff are so friendly. Love them! Great meal for the price. Indoor, outdoor seating.

This cute little dinner is a hidden gem. It’s definitely worth finding, especially for lunch. Their fish baskets and the friendly atmosphere are great to relax and take a break from shopping. Wonderful service, lots of smiling faces!

Our family of 12 stopped in for lunch while visiting and shopping In Mackinaw City. The weather was nice enough to allow us to eat outside. They have a nice outdoor eating area - probably larger than the indoor area. Food was average fried food.

This was a great restaurant tucked off the main street in an outdoor mall. The whitefish and chips was absolutely delicious! The restaurant isn't very big. You order at the counter and then sit and wait for the food to come to your table. It...More
