Great service from Jill! Great pizza, wings, fries, pretzel sticks and beer on tap options.
Friendly staff and good food! We really liked the beer selections and ranch dressing in the salad. It was so nice to have a place that takes reservations after a great day on the island!
Good dinner on the water
The food was good. I loved the Mac and cheese with pulled pork but would have like a little more pork. We also really enjoyed the soft pretzel with beer cheese dip. My daughter didn’t love her rather bland cheese pizza. We were seated a little to close to the table next to us, but we really enjoyed the view and watching the boats.
The waitress was so sweet and funny, she gave excellent service. The Mac and cheese and the pulled pork grilled cheese were delicious, and we really enjoyed our drinks too!
We had a wonderful time here. Our waitress was extremely helpful, and made sure that we were taken care of. The ease of reserving a table was a major plus for us as well. The food was very good and the beer prices were good as well. Highly recommend!
I'll be back when I return to the island! Hopefully it will be warmer so we can enjoy the deck.
The service was over the top from a very nice your woman that was just starting out. Could not have done a better job. Food was very good and innovative, Mary stopped by the table to make sure everything was great and we will be back.
Our waiter was excellent. The good came out quickly and was very good. We also had a view of the water. Would eat there again.
We always enjoy Mary’s. Beautiful view, friendly staff, and the food is delicious. Prices have gone up a bit and sides aren’t included but I guess that is true of most restaurants as a result of COVID-19.
We had a group of our friends in from California and Louisiana to visit the island and share the beautiful fall views with our friends who have never traveled to the island!
Due to the size of our group, 9, we chose the Bistro!
Understanding the last weekend on the island it’s expected that restaurant and store inventories are thin.
What’s not expected is to be treated like you’re bothering or imposing on a business!
The staff was rude, arrogant, obnoxious!
Embarrassing for such a great day and to have our close friends experience this treatment!
Lesson learned, and thankfully there are many great alternatives to chose from on our next visit!
Not worth the wait.
Way understaffed, 45 minute wait even with reservation, kitchen fire smoked up the whole restaurant, staff screaming at patrons, lots of unavailable menu and drink options. The music was stuck on a loop of a really obnoxious song with no words. At least the food was ok.
Mary's fell below our expectations...however, food was good! The light fixtures are bright white which was very harsh, and we expected --despite COVID measures--for it to be a warm and inviting place, with some water view (ideally.) We were seated in the middle...in a service/restroom traffic pattern...and thus we felt as though we were dangling. Service was ok -- hosting could have been more friendly. There were some really loud tables around us. In short, our party of 2 felt very out of place! I would not go back.
Hubz didn't like the chicken pot pie and only ate about 2 bites, but was not reimbursed (even half?) for it.
Fish and chips was fish and fries and was good.
80s female rock music fairly loud and 80% of guests were female.
Not overwhelmed, considering how many other choices there are on island.
Great place to eat and drink. Great atmosphere! Staff was just ok.
Very Nice Evening Out. Food was good, server was attentive and knowledgeable.
With Covid, and many closures of restaurants on the Island they did an amazing job.
Outstanding service! Went with waiters recommendation and ordered fish and chips and chicken tenders. The fish was moist and flaky and the chicken was tender and tasty.
Our waiter was excellent! He gave just enough attention... was never annoying, kept our glasses full, gave great recommendations!
Very glad they take use Open Table. Wish more on Mackinac Island did. Very good experience.
Excellent Meal. Great atmosphere. We had a great waitress too.
We enjoyed our dinner at Mary's Bistro Draught House. Waitress & staff was very friendly.
Our server was top notch. I think his name was Ryan. The truffle fries were fantastic and the shaved steak sub with shiitake mushrooms was wonderful. And I won't forget the Moscow mule. Would totally recommend this place if you are visiting the Island.
Cold coffee, rice was hard, only one desert option, baked potato substitute not an option instead of fries.....
Service was very good. Pizza was tasty - loved the thin crust. Hot Pretzels were good. Wide variety of beers to pick from. Bar type atmosphere on the water, but can’t see much from inside. Not sure the way advanced reservation helped - they seat first come first served.
200 mile race
We really had a nice time! You have the best beer selection on the Island!
Enjoyed Dinner sitting by the window looking at the Lake!
Deck is on the the water with nice views. All beers are from Michigan! Highly recommend!
I was celebrating my birthday! They were out of the Mackinac Mule, but overall we had a great experience!
Great waterfront view. Cheese curds and whitefish were wonderful!
Friendly, really good service, yummy food, bartender ok.
The food is very good but for being on Open Table they sure did not care about our party having a reservation. I made our reservation for 2 at 11 am right when they opened. A line had formed that was quite long waiting for the doors to open and when the hostess came out to open the doors I walked up and mentioned we made a reservation for 11am. She told me we would just have to wait in line and that’s ‘just how we do it here’ soooo what’s the point then of people making reservations???? So other than our reservation being useless and her being a bit rude, the server we had was very nice and the food was very good.
Good food and great beer selection, but not the best value. The whitefish chips was $22 for a very small portion of fish
Took ten minutes to be acknowledged by our server. Took ages to get the check at the end of the night too.
Food was great. Veggie burger was especiallyoutstanding!
They have a QR code as their “no touch menu” but it wouldn’t open on our phones. We told this to our server, but she never came back! She walked by us numerous times. We finally got tired of watching her ignore us, so my husband went to the bar to order drinks, and only then, our “server” FINALLY paid attention to him - but with a rude/impatient comment about how she has “so much going on!”
The front desk was unorganized and unfriendly as well.
It’s surprising and frustrating that they think it’s okay to treat customers/guests in this manner?!
We walked out after that, and went over to the Pink Pony, where we enjoyed a lovely delicious meal at the bar with a fantastic and personable bartender/server, whom we tipped well. Don’t waste your time at Mary’s Draught House! Other places on the island will appreciate your business!!
This meal was by far the best meal we had on the island. I had the whitefish and my 9yr old had kids Mac n cheese., both were delicious!
Casual place, friendly service, good food and most importantly clean.
I liked the place overall. We had a great table but our waiter kept forgetting items. The roasted cauliflower was limp but my Mac and cheese was awesome.
