“Yummy and quick!”
Reviewed August 19, 2011

We went here for lunch on a Wednesday, and the food was excellent, and the service was beyond fast. The pies looked excellent, but by the time we had our food, we were too full.

“Worth the Wait”
Reviewed August 19, 2011

The wait in line was long, but the fact there was a line on a week night tells you how good the food is. The place was packed! The fried fish was very good. I preferred the Walleye to the Whitefish, simply because the walleye had a firmer texture than the whitefish, but both were good. My daughter, the coleslaw hater, finished her entire bowl of the sweet & sour coleslaw (much to my disappointment because I was hoping to eat her bowl too!) We did not eat any pie, but they looked fantastic. This place is definitely worth the wait.

“Local favorite, good food at good price.”
Reviewed August 17, 2011

Off the main drag this local family restaurant is worth the extra mile and short wait in line.
Good food, large portions, friendly service, and family atmosphere. Come for dinner, stay for the pie. Popular with the locals, so must be consistent and a safe bet.

“Best Mackinaw Dining!”
Reviewed August 13, 2011

This was the best place to eat at in Mackinaw City. The food was so good, staff was friendly, everything is made homemade with all that considered the price is great too! If you are going to Mackinaw City eat at this restaurant you will not be disappointed, unlike some of the other overpriced places.
