It was the slowest service ever. The food came out cold. It was the wrong thing. We could not get any refills. We had to go up and ask for our bill to pay and leave. No one cared!

We stopped in for a late lunch. We were met immediately and sat (it was pretty quiet). We were served immediately and the food came out fast. The Waiter was attentive. The food was average at best. I had the Best Seller Fish & Chips....More

This is the place that I recommend to people that I know who are going to Mackinaw City. It is good food for a good price with a nice view in an unique building.

Our family of 4 waited approximately an hour for our food. There wasn't that many people in there so I'm not sure what was up. It was a little pricey for what came on our plates. It was rather disappointing.

Went there on New Years Eve. The food was OK, but priced a bit higher than OK food should be. It was also one of the few places open, so the demand called the shots on price. Nothing special, but not bad either. We will...More

We had dinner in late December. It was very cold outside & quite cool inside. The heating system is not adequate for cold weather. Everyone was wearing their coats & hats while eating. The food was ok.

Food was good, atmosphere is rustic. Not very many options to eat in. The off season. We liked it just a bit over priced for what it was.
