Stopped for dinner and it was worth the wait. Once seated we had fast service. Perch Sandwich, Walleye and Onion Rings were great. Staff was friendly and the decor was fun.

Always go here when in town. Best food in the city. Onion rings to die for. They've got excellent sandwiches and fish too!

Located near Shepler's ferry and the center of Mackinaw City. Friendly pub like place with pub like food. 5 of us had different things and all were pleased. Service was excellent and friendly. Will return at our next visit to Mackinac Island.

We went there for a cheeky beer and had several, plus played pool. The service is really good, both at the bar and on the table. We ordered the ribs and they were excellent! I am still looking for the best ribs on the planet...More
