“Ah-mazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

Group of four friends, two from FL and it was their first visit to Mackinac Island. I had worked on the island and have spent many summers here, so I suggested somewhere I always enjoyed, Yankee Rebel. I hadn't been here in several years and it was better than I remembered! Our server Amanda was great! Attentive with out hovering, great with suggestions and enthusiastic! We enjoyed the food also, and will be returning!

“Perfect Meal at Yankee Rebel Tavern”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

Sometimes everything falls into place for that perfect meal not only on this trip but on any occasion. Admittedly we ate dinner ahead of the crowd - at 4:30pm - so there were only a few other tables occupied. The atmosphere was that of a restaurant NOT a Tavern although the outside looked like a New England Tavern as did the wood table and chairs inside. Our foursome chose a booth, and felt we were in our own world! Michael was our waiter and his sense of humor, attention to detail, explanation of the menu items, and expertise highly contributed to this wonderful experience. The food was outstanding and perfectly presented and seasoned. Two of us had fish that was fresh that day: Pistachio crusted whitefish on a slightly flavored mashed potato with asparagus. One of us had chicken breast and the 4th had rib eye that was cooked and seasoned perfectly. It is obvious the chef knows what he's doing and nothing was covered up with seasonings or coatings to hide cooking or ingredient flaws. We lingered over two glasses of wine each and felt this was one of our most memorable meals in years - and two of us are very frequent travelers. Last but not least - the prices were extremely reasonable. This meal was the highlight of our trip to Michigan for a family wedding in Benton Harbor earlier in the week.

“Wonderful pot roast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

This is my second trip back to the Yankee Rebel. You can not go wrong with the pot roast or the pasta. They bring you fresh bread and rolls to your table before your meal. Staff is very friendly and they have a full bar. I Loved their specialty drinks.
