I was very impressed with this place, our server was one of the best servers I have had in a long time. We had our young daughter with us and our server was amazing with her. Even though she was busy she took the time with us and really made us feel like we were her only table. We got... More

My family and I went for New Years Eve. Our food was not very good. We ordered the Ribs, Prime Rib, and two kids Mac & Cheese meals. It was quite pricey for the quality of food served. I don't mind paying $100 for a meal if it's worth the money but I've had better meals at Applebee's, which isn't... More

We were here for our anniversary on December 13th. The hostess and waitress were both very friendly and attentive. The food was, as always, excellent, and the beer was cold. I have no problem with making The Dixie Saloon a stop every time my wife and I are in Mackinaw. I highly recommend it.

Been here several times. You used to be able to carve your name in the seats but they coated them. Food is great. Had a turkey wrap this time and some pasties. Large menu selection so you should be able to find something you like. Not the cheapest place to go, but it's good

Since we got in late and our hotel didn't have dining accommodations we ate here. Food was hot. Only issue was my son has fish allergies so he couldn't have chicken fingers as he wanted because of possible contamination.

Very busy place. Had about a 20 minute wait. Had the smoked whitefish dip. Delicious! I had The Auger. yes it was huge and so perfectly cooked. Husband had the fire roasted chicken and it was terribly overdone. The place is so large and it seemed as though the sound was echoing. Very noisy.

We were staying in Mackinaw City overnight and decided to walk down the street from the hotel and try the food at the Dixie Saloon. We had the most amazing steak dinner there, I am so glad we decided to drop in there.

Stopped in here earlier in the afternoon just to check out their menu and then decided on this place for supper. Being seniors with smaller appetites we ordered and shared the roast prime rib (no plate charge). Unfortunately our prime rib was not as tasty as we were expecting and have become accustomed to at other similar type places in... More
