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.

The host was very rude and disrespectful. The food was okay. With a large group we were required to make two reservations 15 minutes apart. The host refused to seat the first group until the whole party was present. She then proceeded to comment that our reservation would be lost if we were not there. It appears the system sets you up to fail and they offered no grace. The pizza was okay. The crust was chewy and could have been cooked longer. The wait staff was very energetic and responsive.

Great great spot on Mackinac Island. Superb selection of Michigan Craft Beers. That is just the beginning, outstanding appetizers and superb entrees! Great customer service, while many struggle with staff right now, you would not know it here.

Great location and view, we made reservations months ago and then received a couple of coupons from our ferry company for free appetizers. The server did accept them, but seemed hesitant and less than enthused when we first presented them. She was okay after that, but the food was really just okay, nothing special.

Great location and views, but overall an uninspiring experience. The service was fine. The food was ok. You won’t hate it, but also won’t rush back.

We stayed the night on Mackinac and made reservations here so that we’d have an option for dinner without waiting 2 hours. We were so pleasantly surprised! We sat on the patio which was super nice. We had the hot pretzels and smoked whitefish dip for appetizers—both were great and out to us within about 10 minutes. For dinner we had the whitefish & chips and the pecan salad. Everything was fresh & delicious and the portions were pretty large too—neither my daughter or I could even come close to finishing the salads. Luke waited on us and he was super nice and did a great job with everything! We would for sure go back here again if we come back for another visit!

Amazing beer selection with something for everyone. Food prices are a little high but you're also paying a premium for eating on the island. Everything we had (pretzel and beer cheese appetizer, salmon, and chicken spätzle soup) was very good!

We did not actually eat here. We were sat for our reservation 15 minutes late and then sat for another 15 minutes without so much as having a member of the wait staff say hi or otherwise engage us so we got up and walked out without anyone even saying goodbye. TERRIBLE customer experience!

I had the chicken pot pie. Disappointed. Crust was good and sauce tasty but couldn’t find much chicken.

My husband had the chicken tenders. They were good but a little dry.

Service & atmosphere were very good

Food was pretty decent. We were seated next to the window looking out on the water. Two problems with this. One, the table was directly over the air conditioning vent for the room. This meant we were freezing. Second, about 5 minutes after we sat down, there was an overwhelming smell of cigarette smoke that started coming out of the vent. We had to move to another table.

My husband and I went on our first vacation as a married couple and decided Mary’s bistro would be a great dinner to our night on mackinac island. I’m sad that I don’t remember our servers name but he was amazing. He took care of us and was attentive without being helicoptery. although the restaurant was busy our food and drinks came out within an expected time. It may be because it is a vacation town in the summer, but the ambience was positive, from the hostess, to the server, to the customers themselves. My husband and I had the fish and chips and it was delicious. As for drinks we each got a beer that we enjoyed. For my husband’s second beer we trusted the server to make a choice for us based on our tastes. And he delivered. We are also 906 rewards members and our points were promptly added to our account, just in time to by fudge with the reward money. A very good experience. I don’t have criticisms. One thing to note however is that because this is a restaurant that is in high demand, you have a chance to be seated right against a wall outside. We were at one of the few tables crammed into a corner by the pier. But we had to much fun for it to impact our experience.
