Standard family style restaurant. Plenty of food. Great seafood that is caught locally/daily. Affordable. Get there early on holiday weekends.

My husband asked why we anywhere else when we come to Mackinaw City. That's a good question that i couldn't answer. Usually have breakfast or lunch here. This time had dinner & it was very good. Got there before 5 & the place got packed soon after.

Waitress was great. Went out of her way to be kind to my 4 year old Granddaughter. Food was wonderful. Older lady seating people was harsh and no smiles.
