This restaurant offers a full menu with plenty of seating indoors and out. It's a great place for meetings or small parties as they have outdoor seating along the shoreline, as well as a caboose attached to the restaurant.

My cousin loves the Mac and cheese so I was looking forward to it. We came an hour before they closed on a Sunday. The soup seemed over cooked and salad did not seem so fresh. My Mac and Cheese was rather bitter so I was bummed. Husband had lobster Mac that was better. We got mussels too and had... More

On our drive home from Escanaba, we decided we were hungry for a Pasty, but it's February - where can we find one? Stopped here - great Pasty, friendly service!! We'll be back!!

We were traveling through town looking for a place for lunch and was very happy we gave the Mackinac Grille a try. It's very nice casual atmosphere inside, neat decor with many good views, waitress was nice and they had a great brunch spread with many delicious choices! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will make a point to stop again... More

I haven't eaten there because I don't like the menu but a very nice place to stop for an afternoon cocktail. As for a table on the glassed in porch overlooking the lake. Prices and service are fair.

We stopped in for dinner, and it was good. Not great, but good. The service, though, was really lacking. There weren't that many customers in the restaurant at the time, and it sure seemed to take awhile for our server to come visit us. We both ordered sandwiches, so it shouldn't have taken as long as it did for our... More

I had lunch here while in town for work. I'm a sucker for northern MI and the whitefish, and I thoroughly enjoyed the whitefish patty melt. They also have a soup & salad bar at lunch time. I would imaging this is a great spot in the summer to hang out on the patio overlooking the lake!

Decided to go north of the bridge for lunch. The restaurant is welcoming for the road. Was seated promptly with a view of the lake and Mackinac island. My wife had a bar drink, my son and I had water and ice tea. Well the tea had a floater in it. Oh well they replaced it. My son enjoyed his... More

We loved the idea of being on the water and it held such promise for homemade pierogies, but alas it was the end of the season and I fear we somehow got there at the wrong time. The crust was so hard we could barely chew it. (And my teeth are good!) Mostly mush, very few veggies. Not what we... More
