Mother's day Brunch was fantastic and reasonable priced. Probably why they were so busy. The staff handled the large number of people like the professionals they are.

Great food and AWESOME service! Anthony T. was our server and he was super cool and funny. Definitely made the experience a great one. This guy needs a raise! 😊 Also, I highly recommend the perch, I know sometimes perch can have a fishy taste, but the perch was delicious.

Nice atmosphere, good food, prices are higher but not unreasonable for the quality of entrees. Not real noises, could have a conversation with out yelling.

Best Friday seafood menu in town, and great live music on the weekends. Excellent perch dinner, not the small, overcooked fish you see at other places.
Mark Adriansen via - Apr 8, 2022
Perch was nice and crispy. Old fashioned went down smooth. Charlie Berens doesn't know what he's missing!

Fun place to stop for a bite. We really enjoyed ourselves and the food was great.

This place is very Wisconsin! Lots of wood and brown and a very cozy feel. Wide ranging menu. We went with the chimichanga and the chicken pesto gnocchi, which were both good. Top notch cheese curds. Full bar with lots of beer and specialty drinks. Our waitress was terrific! The fireplace out front is a nice touch.

Karissa was an absolutely amazing server with a great sense of humor that made the meal 10x better than it already was. The food was top notch, with good sized portions of everything. Karissa went out of her way many times to make sure our night was amazing, and it will be remembered for a long time!

The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. The service was great and food came out quick. Had the T-bone steak with Garlic Mashed potatoes, and chicken dumpling soup. The steak was cooked perfectly and the soup and mashed potatoes complimented the steak perfectly.

We just had a terrific take-out Thanksgiving dinner from Mackinaws. It was easy to reheat and serve, plus it was delicious. Hope they do this again next year.
