We ate here with 4 adults and 3 kids. The children's menu was good and offered several options. My daughter's grilled cheese was awesome. For the adults, the food was good but the portions were small for what we paid. I didn't feel that it was the best value compared to other restaurants on the island.

First time to visit. Donnie the bartender very apologetic about some of the beer on tap not available but it being a Monday following a long hot Sunday, beer had been at a premium. Had the Gazpacho for lunch. Delicious. Nice clean restrooms after sight seeing. Had never been to Mission Point in any of our visits. Much enjoyed.

We stopped here for drinks and wish we hadn't! Between the terrible service and the cigar smoke from those playing golf...ugh. They were also out of their signature beer. We waited for a long time between drinks and 25 minutes after we had finished the second round, my husband finally went to find out waiter to get the check. It... More

We have been visiting Mackinac Island for 15 years and love visiting Bistro on the Green. The food and drinks are enjoyable and the scenic view is unmatched. One of the best features of the restaurant however is the bartender Donnine. If you are looking for good food and a very fun environment, visit Donnine in the bar area for... More

A small outdoor dining establishment attached to the "executive" putting greens, which had the least executives I have ever seen! Fantastic atmosphere, excellent food. Whitefish entree was mediocre, but gazpacho, ahi tuna appetizer, watermelon salad, and more were carefully prepared, well flavored and excellent! View of the stunning lake and opposite island can't be beat. Highly recommend!

At 8 pm, we were seated promptly at a table overlooking the point, which gave us a great view of the setting sun. The menu has reasonably priced sandwiches, and pricier appetizers and entrees. We splurged on the pork belly and tuna tartare appetizers, both of which were delicious. Then came the burgers: burger, fried onions, camembert, lettuce, avocado, bacon,... More

We stopped for a late lunch on a beautiful day on Mackinac Island. The service was extremely slow and it took quite a while before anyone even acknowledged us. Simple things were ordered: a hummus plate and steak salad. Food was long in arriving. The hummus plate was terrible, having absolutely no flavor. The chickpeas were coarsely ground without any...

I had the steak salad and my husband had the hot ham sandwich. It was lovely to watch people play putt-putt and zoom by on their bikes. Eating outside is so nice at times, especially on vacation!

Just remember that your on a resort area. Prices are high, so ask about portion side before you order something like the Hummus Appetizer.

We stopped for lunch with our adult children and grandchildren. We had a 9 month old with us and the buckles were broken on the high chairs available. Lucky For Us!!! When I went into the ladies room, the handicapped toilet stall was where the high chairs and booster chairs were stored!!!!! I could go to the bathroom with the... More
