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.

We arrived to town later than we planned. The Dixie has a great atmosphere, our meals were generously portioned, and served quickly. We did not have a long wait to be seated and were tended to promptly.

Stop here early afternoon on a Friday. The interior was rustic with a log cabin motif. People are encouraged to leave something written on every exposed piece of this restaurant. We just dropped in for something small. I opted for the chilli and my wife decided on a side of sauteed seasonal vegetables. We also decided on sharing the hot... More

It can be a very fun place to eat lunch or dinner and it's lively for the most part -- slows down after October 31. Food is good, but more on the scale of "bar food" and nothing more.

Friendly service and great decore. The most important part was the food and that was excellent. We had the fish and chips and loved it!

The staff of the Dixie Saloon and Irish pub were fantastic. They catered to our needs and were great for talking with about the season and events. We are there sometimes twice a day!!! Thank you.
