Great food, clean restaurant, good price. Best place we ate in Mackinaw City during our six night stay. Worth the wait.

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.

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.

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.
