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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!
