We ate here with 6 of us and all enjoyed our meals. Most of us had burgers, which were good and the fries were really tasty. One also enjoyed the lasagna. The location is nice and I would imagine in the summer the patio would be a fun place to sit with a view of the water. Overall, it wasn't... More

This place was recommended by a friend for their fish. I had the 8 oz sirloin with fries and veggies and my boyfriend had all you can eat walleye sticks. Steak was full of grizzle. Cold soggy fries and cold veggies. His walleye were tasteless and all batter; let's just say they were all you can eat and he didn't... More

My friend and I had a lovely dinner at the Mackinac Grille last week. The tavern steak smothered with onion and mushrooms was so tasty. The fries were great too. You really cannot beat the harbor view and the service was excellent. The next time I'm in St. Ignace, I will be sure to visit the restaurant.

Have visited before, the view and food was great. This time we went there specifically to sit on the outdoor deck and the great chix sandwich only to find a huge tent in the way of the view... Bummed but the sammich was still excellent :)

The hamburgers are delicious and they have an extensive soup and salad bar. I will say they ran out of a few things HOWEVER, the restaurant across the street was closed for a special event so I think they had many more guests then normal for a fall week day. Cute atmosphere and reasonably priced.

Pretty broad menu, lots of nice options. A burger, whitefish and walleye dinners were up for us, all left happy and satisfied. Nice atmosphere, beautiful spot overlooking the water. Super outdoor patio if the weather cooperates. You know, over 30 degrees F. It is the U.P. of course.

Very good burger, okay chicken tenders (didn't seem real tasty). Nice waitress, a bit slow. Only ate dinner, didn't use the bar or drink alcohol.
