I have only tasted a pastie once before and was under the impression that I did not like them. Mackinaw Pastie Company has changed my mind - delicious enough to bring some home!

If you want that up north dinner here is a great spot. Located right off the bridge, the food is good and service is quick. Recommend the beef pasty with gravy. Good on a cold night.

This was my first pasty. So I have nothing with which to compare. But I enjoyed my beef pasty. The shredded beef, potato and rutabaga filling was hot and tasty. The crust was excellent. The gravy was good. I got the meal which included Cole slaw and a cookie. Cole slaw was fine. Cookie was very good.

Always freshly made, we always get beef pasties with gravy--always good, maybe a little too much "crust" but I guess that's what pasties are.

I was very disappoint with the pasties at this place. They taste more like a meat and potato taco to me. Many of the restaurants and my suggestion is the Mackinaw Bakery if you want a good homemade pastie.

After trying a variety of UP pasties on a trip in 2014, we settled for only one this year...the locally recommended spot in Mackinaw. The pastie was piping hot and tasty. The crust was thin and crispy. The pastie was "folded" in a manner quite different from any we had previously. We skipped the gravy (not a recommended accompaniment by... More

For years my family had been visiting the upper part of lower Michigan. Occasionally we made our way to Mackinaw and whenever we did, we got pasties. Recently my wife and I visited Mackinaw and I had to take her to get one. They were as good as I had remembered. We shared one for lunch and its a perfect... More

Many restaurants up north have pasties, but they are only passable. This restaurant included rutabagas which gets excluded in many other places. I had the Mexican version which was a nice change of pace and included taco sauce, cheese and sour cream. The size was just right for a hearty lunch.
