“Hidden treasurer”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

This great bar restaurant is hidden behind The Island House on Mackinac Island. A getaway from the busy island with good food and good prices.

“We had a good lunch.”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

This restaurant piqued our interest. Fish and chips (yes, order the house chips and a really good dip that accompanies) and kale salad were delightful. Adequate service. We would have eaten lunch outside, but that area was full. Nice menu, quiet location, price reasonable, pleasant people. What more do you want?

“Hidden Gem of Mackinac”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

This place is a little off the beaten path of the main drag. The setting is nothing fancy but the food is amazing! The blue cheese dip and homemade chips were so good and our sandwiches were great as well. It was nice to escape the crowds a bit, as most tourists don't venture back to this restaurant.

“Lunch spot: Sandwich shop at the back of Island House Hotel”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

This small sandwich shop is located at the back of the Island House Hotel next to the pool and accessed from the outdoor walkway on the second floor of the hotel. Because it is tucked behind, it is relatively quiet and peaceful, but lacks most of the Mackinac Island charm and has no view. Nice bar, a few tables, some outdoor seating which we didn't use because of rain. Good sized portions. Adequate food, but nothing special. Soups were served hot. Needs more attention to details 1) menu doesn't match the food prep delivered (grilled vs toasted) and 2) the BLT and G was served without the 'G'. The house chips are wonderfully tasty!

“A fun little place”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Limited menu as it is a sandwich shop. Very nice outdoor space and very cute indoors. The service was great (Ashley). The sandwiches were good and abundant in portions. The soup was good too.
It is hidden behind the Island Hotel, but away from the bustle of the main street of Mackinac Island. Worth finding!!
