We stopped here for dinner just before closing time and they greeted us and remained so pleasant though out our visit. Pasties were great and also the white fish dip is a must.

Dining here is like dining at your cousins house. The waitstaff can be heard bantering back and forth amongst themselves. A couple of them came over, and started talking to us - once they heard we were from California. Good pasties and delicious gravy.

Dining at Bessie's is like eating in your own kitchen. You can smell home style cooking. The pasties are great and the staff is pleasant.

What a wonderful gem north of town! Bessie's offers delectable and homemade pasty's which, frankly, are hard to top! Definitely in the top 5 in the UP. For a real treat try the vegetarian. It is a very yummy alternative to the original.

Traveling through the U.P. of Michigan twice recently, we decided that we needed to try a pasty - pasties are promoted everywhere up there. We passed by Bessie's on our way, and popped in there. Similar to other reviewers, on that day they had only...More

This place was just ok! We got take-out at the beginning of our Mackinac vacation. They were out of everything but beef. A regular beef pasty with a tiny gravy and a small side of coleslaw which they call a "plate" was $8. No kids...More

We arrived for lunch at noon and it was not busy. Did pick up by 12:30. Disappointed by only 2 choices for pasties and both were meat. Pretty slim for a pastie place.
