“Best burgers”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Don't let the looks deceive you, the best burgers on the island. A much better choice for breakfast than anyplace in downtown.

The owner is the one on the grill, his attention to detail shows.

“Excellent food; fun place to go”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

While tiny, this place is big on great food. The breakfasts are fantastic (don't miss the pancakes), and the hamburgers at lunch rate up there as one of the very best (voted by everyone in our family). We return to Mackinac Island year after year, and make sure to eat here several times during our stay on the island.

“Best Breakfast on the Island!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

If you're looking for a reasonably priced breakfast on the island, this is the place to go. Nothing fancy, just good home-cooked food. Not overpriced like many of the island eateries. The waitstaff is friendly, the service is fast, the food is prepared the way you like it. The atmosphere is appropriate for families.

“The Best Hamburger”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

The fresh(unfrozen) hamburger was delicious. We enjoyed the pretzel bum and the mushroom/onion burger as well as a burger with only mustard and pickle. Haven't tasted better on Mackinac Island or anywhere else in my travels.
Friendly servers-prompt service-reasonable prices-you feel like a regular in only one visit.
