Food was good. Had 5 grandchildren with us. They had great kids meals, very good size servings. Have hungry boy appetites and they were full. Prices reasonable.

Locale was good. Atmosphere was good. Food was not great or something I would recommend. Service was ok. I asked for a Diet Coke, got Coke. Waitress recommended the special, tuna sandwich, pretty basic sandwhich. Could have made it at home but since I was nowhere near home it sufficed.

Plenty of places to shop and eat. Fudge is big in this area. Be prepared to walk. The area is very clean and family friendly. Marina not far. You can take a walk by the water or just sit out and enjoy the surroundings.

cannot tell you about the food or drinks, we didn't even get spoken to after we were sat down. Table next to us had been there before us and hadn't been waited on either so after 10 minutes we walked.

Introduced to this restaurant by friends who are somewhat local, was disappointed by the lack of choices on the menu.

We ate twice at this restaurant as it caters to families with furchildren. You dine in the back patio to reduce stimuli for the furbabies.

I usually avoid meals in Mackinaw City area due to prices and general poor quality in a mega tourist town. Schedule and timing landed us here at lunch time and we decided, what the heck...it was a cool building if nothing else. Surprise... it was good...I mean great service and great food. We ordered the deep friend pickle chips to... More

My family of 9 was sat outside which was nice...but then we were totally forgotten about. 30 mins after we were sat, I flagged down a server and asked is she knew who our server was... She later came back and said "I don't know, I guess I'll be your server" we ordered drinks and food at the same time... More

Looks like we aren't the only ones to experience way less than stellar service at this dive. This was Saturday July 30th approx. 8 pm. There were two of us and we were starving. We've been to Mackinaw many many times and we never ate at the Historic Depot Restaurant so we decided to give it a try. The inside... More

Excellent, juicy burgers! And, my 11 year old son ordered the steak bites appetizer as his meal and was very pleased! Good food, good service, good atmosphere. Worth it!
