Mary's Bistro Draught House is a downtown favorite with its modern vibe, home-style cuisine, and 50 taps. Along with their endless selection of craft beer and cocktails, you will find artisanal pizza, burgers, house-made chicken pot pie, and locally sourced whitefish. Sip on a signature draft Mackinac Mule while listening to the waves lap on the rocks and watching the boats cruise into the harbor or catch a game on the big screen inside.

I ordered the chicken pot pie - virtually no chicken in it - just a few ‘threads’ of meat - not what I was expecting !

We had a wonderful dinner. The menu was very impressive and our food was superb. Highly recommend the patio, it was a great way to cap off a fun day! Our table was ready right when we arrived and our waitress Riley gave us wonderful service.

Pretzel sticks were pretty good. Poutine was NOT. Fries tasted like the kind you get in a grocery store freezer section
Waitress barely paid attention to us. Probably because we just got drinks and apps? She didn’t even ask if we wanted a box for e entire plate of fries we sent back. Apparently she figured out we didn’t like then. Although she did not ask if we liked anything.

Great seat overlooking the bay. Server at our table was wonderful (bartender not as friendly though). Food was great! This was an anniversary event and we had a great evening! Recommend Mary’s Bistro if you are on Mackinaw Island!

Extremely disappointing. Restaurant was smelly and dirty. Staff was rude and acted put out by customers. Food was expensive for the quality. Will never be back.

We chose to make a reservation at this restaurant after looking at images of the food and reviews online. It was a huge disappointment and we aren’t fancy folks. I ordered a pot pie that was featured online and it was basically a bowl of congealed potatoes and carrots (maybe 3 pieces of chicken total found) with a puff pastry square on top. This cost $28. Everything was overpriced and was worse than if I would’ve gone to Cracker Barrel or fast food. (Let me stress- I NEVER give reviews like this)

Mary's whitefish was a cut above. Not sure if it was something special in the light coating or the tartar, but it was fabulous. And loved the vinegar-based coleslaw too!

Felt very rushed, didn’t even finish our first drinks before appetizers and main course showed up. No one asked how our food was or if we needed anything, they just brought us the check.

Birthday - hostess was great! We were a little early for our reservation but she gladly accommodated us. I asked her do they have something special for birthdays snd she stated yes; our waitress was ok. I was a little disappointed after asking her for a charging port for iPhone (all day on island lost battery life) she wasn’t really accommodating. But overall we had a great lunch and celebration for my sister’s birthday!! The hostess had a box of fudge with a candle (a little corny) and sang happy Birthday!! Beautiful views and seating was perfect!!

It’s tourist season in a tourist area, so prices are as expected. What was terribly disappointing was the food. My wife and I split the charred Caesar salad and the Margherita pizza. The salad was one head of Romaine lettuce, split and grilled (edges burnt to taste like campfire marshmallows), with some sprinkles of shredded Parmesan and a small bit of dressing. More disappointing was the pizza. It was basically a cheese flatbread (no crispiness to the crust whatsoever) with a few (overly-thick) slices of some smallish tomato. Basil must be one of the most inexpensive restaurant ingredients around, yet there were but a few ribbons on the pizza; not even enough for one per slice! Perhaps other choices are more rewarding, but these would best be avoided.

The food was great! I’ve seen some bad reviews for this place and am very surprised because it’s fantastic! Must try a side salad (or any salad) with the maple vinaigrette which looks and tastes nothing like you’d expect! I would love to buy a bottle of that dressing to go!

I was really unhappy with the fact I made a prior reservation and was never asked if I wanted outdoor. When we got to the restaurant and saw we had an indoor table, we asked the hostess and she said those are reserved…I tried to argue I did reservations online and wasn’t asked, but she didn’t honor our request. We went ahead and ate and it was good, but the dining room had a strong bleach odor. All in all it was fine, not great and for the amount of money….I would think it should be perfect!
