Description: Mary's Draught House features Northern Michigan’s largest collection of craft beers flowing from 50 taps! Whether a tap takeover by your favorite craft brewer, a game on the big screens or live music, there is always something happening at Mary’s place. Mary’s Bistro specializes in unique savory cuisine loaded with flavor. We use the freshest local ingredients prepared in our open kitchen on a wood grill or in the spitfire rotisserie oven. Seasoned hardwoods from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula impart a subtle and unmatched flavor to the food from our grill. Our spitfire rotisserie oven slow-cooks chicken to tender perfection, sealing in their juices to create mouthwatering meals.

We stopped here on a weekend trip to the island for a quick lunch and sat at the bar for the best soup and bread we have ever had. A glass of wine, soup, bread and good conversation is this little bistro's special atmosphere. Wish we had more time to go there for dinner but we were at the Grand Hotel.

After walking around the beautiful island Mary's Bistro on the water looked like a promising spot to enjoy our first meal on Mackinac. It wasn't. This is a perfect example of not judging a book by its cover. Nice looking place, but the food was close to inedible. We ordered two pizzas - the tomato basil and pepperoni. Perhaps their oven or their chef were "off" that day, but the pizzas were limp and soggy. The sweet potato fries tasted like ones from the frozen food section of the grocery store (not made from scratch and fresh sweet potatoes) ...and the service was inattentive and barely acceptable. We left feeling as if we had been conned. Spent more money than we would have liked, and still hungry for some good food!

We were seated on the patio where 2 other couples were eating. It took 15 minutes for the waitress to arrive because she was flirting with the grill cook (which was right in front of us as they grill out on the patio). When the food was cooked, it sat on the counter for 10 minutes - we were looking at it - while this time the waitress flirted with the bartender. When she did finally bring over the two hamburgers, they were well done when we had ordered medium rare.

I would not eat here again as there are many other fabulous options on the island where the food is good and/or the service acceptable. Even one of the above would have salvaged this experience.

I ordered a basil & tomato pizza, and it was INCREDIBLE! Also had a brownie for dessert and it hit the spot. This place is expensive but really good. Definitely worth the money.
