I generally run from restaurants that bill themselves as a "Family" restaurant but this is an exception. We ate dinner and lunch the next day. Dinner was grilled whitefish (excellent) and butternut squash for a vegetable - my wife's entre was a Garden Salad which was excellent and huge. We asked for their homemade bread but the waitress failed to mention that they had whole wheat which we would have preferred but the white was excellent anyway. Pie is not to be missed - homemade of course. For lunch we split an excellent Cobb Salad and it was more than sufficient.

The food here is fantastic and the service is as well. Fast and efficient! It's always busy and the locals eat there, and that's a great sign! We will be back!

We ate here three times, once for dinner when we arrived in the area and again for breakfast before and after our 3 night stay on the island. All three times the food was well prepared and quite good. Their fish and omelets are very good, however their pancakes just miss. The most memorable was the Dutch Cherry Pie. It was so good in fact that we got 2 pieces to go and took them along home. This place is definitely on our list of “keepers”.

All the locals know this is the place to eat! Had to stand in line but doesn't take long to get seated because the tables turn over quickly. While standing in line people tell you what is good. Everyone said order your pie as soon as you sit down because they run out of some pies. We will definitely come back if we are in this area again. Don't miss out if you are in Mackinaw City! Great city to visit!!!

We stopped here for lunch based on Trip Adviser reviews. Service was good. Clam chowder was very good. Sandwiches all homemade.
