Great atmosphere! Have seen their sign for years and finally stopped in. It was well worth it! Great nostalgic menu!

“Underwhelming”
Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

OK, so the "Bridge View" is the expressway bridge not the Mackinaw Bridge but so what. In spite of the generally generous reviews I was a bit put off by the generally shabby look of the place. I often judge a restaurant by first impression and would have bypassed Bridge View had it not been for the generally good reviews. The fish was nicely cooked and had good flavor. The rest of the dinner (a combination of potato, carrots and onion) was tasteless and greasy as was the bottom of the plate it was all served on. The staff was attentive and the chief offered us some sweets after we finished eating. The staff gets an A but the food gets a D. All and all I will pass this place by on my next Mackinaw City visit.

“Not just a Diner.. an experience...”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

I don't know about you but when I travel it always helps to know where to go for a great meal...no matter the time of day or night...Welcome to the Bridgeview Diner which is perhaps the only place you can grab a bite 24 hours a day in Mackinaw ... Lenny, the proprietor and chef... is fun & friendly... and has been known to "go out of his way" to make sure your "diner" experience is a memorable one... as the eclectic atmosphere is a step back in time... and the music is always playing... don't be surprised if someone gets up and starts dancing to the tunes... you'll leave gastronomically satisfied, a little laughter, with a smile on your face...

“1st time at dinner”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Bridgeview Diner is our new favorite in Mackinaw City. Service was great. Nice, friendly atmosphere and relaxing. Food was great. Plenty to eat and pancakes and fried potatoes were awesome and hot. I officially love this place. Coming back next year.
