Mackinac Grille-St. Ignace, Michigan

It took us a couple of days to decide to come to this restaurant as every day there was a lineup out into the parking lot to get inside.  We figured that we would give it a try, as the reviews we read on this place were decent.

At least our server was entertaining.  He would bring our drinks by carrying them on his head.  The babies loved it!  Because the food was quite a hot mess and it seems overrated, I give this place a…

3/5 stars
