Top 3 quality places to eat on island. Hard to believe everything you eat came over on a boat. Great ambiance.

This is, by far, the best restaurant on Mackinac Island. The service, food, ambiance and just everything. We were at our table for 2 1/2 hours and had no idea we were there that long. There were 11 of us including well behaved newborn, 3 and 4 year olds! Just wonderful experience for our annual tradition. Thank you Carlos!!

Stopped here on a friend's recommendation and loved it! Great food, service, and location. This dinner really topped off our trip to the island! Quiet waterfront view next to a small beach where you can walk out to take pictures. Definitely make a reservation to avoid a wait and sit outside in nice weather! Truly a fine dining experience well worth the price.

We had a great dinner seated outside by the waterfront. Some noise from the park next to the restaurant but the dining area itself felt private and nice. Attentive server. Amazing food. My husband had the filet mignon, and it melted in your mouth. Great chef. Mixed berry creme brûlée for dessert was light but still a nice sweet end to the meal. A few options for non-alcoholic drinks/mocktails too, as I’m pregnant, that was a lovely surprise! Would eat here again, great for a special occasion.

Service and locale were outstanding as always! (We’ve been dining here every time we come to the island. The food is tending toward becoming only good - the spinach goat cheese dried cherry salad had a total of 3, yes 3, dried cherries strategically placed on the outside perimeter of the salad. Party of 2, one salad, one soup, 2 entrees, 1 glass of wine, 1 drink, and 2 coffees total bill was $160 plus tip…noisy at times with a few rambunctious kids dining at the table next to us.

This is a beautiful setting with every table inside and outside having a great view of the harbor. The menu is upscale and includes a good variety. The wine selection by the glass was good as was the cocktail menu. My wife enjoyed the Bellini Martini and my Old Fashioned was good, except it could have used a large ice cube or sphere instead of standard ice. I had the filet mignon, my wife the Scottish salmon. Both were outstanding, hot, and served with delicious sides. The only disappointment of the evening was the puff pastry ice cream dessert with fudge sauce. The fudge sauce was over cooked and gritty…not supposed to happen in the most famous town for fudge! We returned the next night for cocktails on the patio. A lovely place…maybe the best view on the island.

Wonder waiter - Carlos. Very attentive and knowledgeable about the restaurant, area, and food. Carriage house is a great place to eat. Right on the water with million dollar views. Food (fish and pasta) were excellently prepared and plated. Highly recommended.

Wonderful service (Casey)…he was prompt with pouring the wine, letting us know the timing of each portion of our meal. The swordfish, pick chop, and filet were cooked to perfection. The only mildly disappointing item was the “not so” hot fudge on the sundaes. All in all, I highly recommend the Carriage House

The view was spectacular! The staff was very friendly from the time we walked in. The bartender could brush up on his greeting skills , as we were not greeted by him when we sat down and he decided cleaning up his glasses and bar area was more important than waiting on us. I then said something to another young man behind the counter and he did help us. We ordered a bottle of Veuve Clicquot and by time we got ,we were called for our table . So not really a great experience. However our server made up for it! She was very attentive and friendly. We will go back again and highly recommend this place ! The food was also delish . We ordered the whitefish dip, The shrimp and asparagus salad and wagu hamburger. All was excellent !

Made reservation ahead of time and was given a table inside and refused to give me table outside even after I said I would wait for an opening. Great location but host could care less if you eat there or not and made that abundantly clear. Would not eat there again because how we were treated.

It’s a beautiful spot for a nice dinner with your significant other. Unfortunately a lot of hotel guest are there with their family and kids wearing sweat pants and t-shirts ruining the ambiance. My server Derek was rude and honestly borderline psychopatic like as well however looking around the rest of the wait staff was on their game. If you’re looking for a nice dinner and are less focused on the view of the water elsewhere on the island may suite you better.

Very good, but honestly for the price, I think it should have been stellar. Quite a few amazing high end restaurants on the island, and Carriage House could totally knock it up a notch. Great view, super friendly staff.
