We had a breakfast buffet and evening pizza buffet. Both had lots of selections and the food was excellent and the staff constantly made sure the buffet table was full of fresh food.

We were walking down the main street and hungry when we were enticed inside by a lady holding a sign and told us about the great deal - all you can eat pizza, salad, and ice cream for $9 - sounded great - but we should have been worried when she escorted us into a very empty room - peak tourist season- prime dinner time.
The food was terrible - pizza was cold and doughy - :( it was all you could eat - but you don't want to eat much.

There aren't very many inexpensive places to eat on Mackinac Island, and when you are staying on the island for several days, you need to find at least a couple of inexpensive meals. We decided to try the pizza buffet. The pizza was better than we thought it would be. They didn't have very many types of pizza, but there was something for everyone among the options they offered. It wasn't particularly busy when we were there, so there was always plenty of pizza, but I could see how they could run a little low if it was really busy. They have a salad bar which had more options on it than I would have expected, and they had several dessert options. We found the dessert pizza to be only okay, so I would steer people in the direction of the ice cream machine.

The Murray Hotel buffet is not the best food on the island. I wouldn't try to argue otherwise. However, if you are looking for an inexpensive option, it is a solid choice.

Pizza was great. Salad was okay and fresh. Ice cream machine and dessert pizza also available. The drinks are extra.

We arrived when it wasn't too busy. Plenty of time to clean up the dining room and the salad bar, but that was not done. Food everywhere. Needs some tlc to make it look appetizing. Hate seeing the veggies all mixed because the multitudes has been there and no one cleaned up. Food needed to be replaced, counters needed wiping. Pizzas were put out from time to time but not kept up with. Nice to have a place to sit and get away from the crowd. Bathroom is small and poorly managed as well for the crowds that visit. Our friends were very insistent we go there but I would have been happy to eat for the same price in a sit down restaurant.
