There were 15 guest for the Pre Wedding dinner and we were treated very well with great service and great food and drink. Everybody's meal was just like they ordered and was very good, I ask if there were any problems and everybody was very happy with the service and their dinners.

We went to this restaurant as they advertised all you can eat crab BUT the price was unrealistic so we stuck to the fish and it was very good

Thanks to Michael Gofourth we are at the best sea food restaurant in town. We had the best crab and fish ever. The servers and the host were very welcoming and friendly. I can't wait to come back here next year.

Last night we were told to go to the lighthouse by Michael Gofourth for dinner. That was one of the best dinners we had ever had it was amazing fish and crab. You have to give this restaurant a shot.

Went there on a fellow hotel guest recommendation. Had a larger party so we waited for a table. Service and food were great.

After being underwhelmed and disappointed by a few restaurants in Mackinaw City, we were thrilled with our dinner out at the Lighthouse Restaurant! The atmosphere is new, modern, pristine, and comfortable. The staff is welcoming, friendly, and bright. Our waitress, Marika, was attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable and seemed to come to our table at just the right moment every time.... More
