“GREAT FOOD AND ATMOSPHERE”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Oh my gosh, this was the best place to eat! We were looking for a stone baked pizza place and this restaurant was recommended by the hotel we stayed at. So glad we went here. It was decorated kind of different for an Italian place, more woodsy with stuffed animals all around, but the atmosphere was good and the wait staff was very friendly. The food was AWESOME and there was plenty of it. We would definately go here again, even though it would be about a 5 hour drive to get there, that's how good the food was. I wish we could have taken our leftovers and enjoyed them, but we were on cycles so we really had no way to do that. Again, want to say how friendly and prompt the wait staff was on our visit. The one thing that was a bit odd was the fact that there was only one bathroom/stall in the restaurant. I thought for such a nice size place, it should have had a bigger resstroom.

“Ok...”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

One of several restaurants in Mackinaw City which has a potentially great facility, but the service is slow and the food is lame and expensive for what it is. Decor is nice but a little odd for an Italian restaurant. As with the other aforementioned restaurants, I just wonder why they would bother having a very spacious, beautiful building if the food and service is going to be an afterthought.

If you like lodge theme, you will enjoy the setting. Food was good but pricey. Wait staff was friendly. Enjoyed the decor.
