Description: This fabulous Mackinac Island eatery features an appropriate horse theme from the 1938 true life story of the famous horse, Seabiscuit. A great deal of care was taken to restore the original brick surfaces, hardwood floors and new furnishings have transformed the 1800’s bank building into a cozy, comfortable restaurant. An excellent casual menu appropriately fits this charming place. Seabiscuit fans rave about the quality menu items. A fine wine selection is available along with a full bar so stop in for an afternoon cocktail or stay for the evening sipping your favorite martini.

After spending a few nights on Mackinac Island, we had already tried the restaurants on our bucket list, so we asked our carriage driver for a dinner suggestion. Without hesitation, she recommended the Seabiscuit Café. Not surprisingly, there was a 30-40 minute wait, but with all of the people watching to do on Main Street the time went by quickly. Once inside, we enjoyed the comfortable atmosphere. It was here that we found the friendliest wait staff on the island! The drinks were cold and tasty! My husband had the steak sandwich and I had the Monte Cristo. I can honestly say that these were the best sandwiches we have ever had! The dessert choices were to die for, but we were so full from dinner, that we had to pass. We will certainly come back to the Seabiscuit Café again on our next visit!

Saw that this was on recommended list, but for lunch the food was just average and took quite sometime to get! Lots of places to eat, would try someplace else next trip!

This a good restaurant on the island. The food is reasonably priced and the price of a pint of Guinness is very fair. The Guinness was poured properly and was very fresh tasting. All of the food was excellent. Can be very crowded from six to eight.
