Love the atmosphere and the food is amazing, definitely one of our favorite lunch stops. The staff is really super friendly as well, and make you feel like you're just another regular customer.

A fun must stop when in town! Great atmosphere, burgers and burritos! Our favorite time to visit is the off season when it is not as busy.

Decided to eat here based on trip advisor ratings and weren't disappointed. We asked our server Jon for recommendations, and from that we ordered the whitefish sandwich, and the Reuben with onion rings. Both were amazing. The atmosphere was fun with keys all over the walls and ceiling.

You know the old saying, come as a stranger, leave as a friend? That's the Keyhole bar. Great food, great customer service and a great place to meet people and relax. Plus it's the last family owned bar in town.

Just had the best fresh perch sandwich. The French fries where good and the cole slaw was house made. Our waiter was very attentive. We always try to stop here when in Mackinaw City.

Very few restaurant options in Mackinac City on the off season. This was quite the pleasant surprise! Great tasting wraps and chili!

Cold draft beer and a reasonable bar menu with standard pub fare in case you are hungry. Friendly place with attentive bartenders.

Great food and good prices! I had a smothered chicken and it was a large portion, and very tasty. Our waiter was also very helpful with suggestions and taking good care of us. We would go again.
