We took our bikes with us to discover Mackinac Island. What a delight it was to experience the fabulous view, wonderful service and good food, not to mention to get away from the THRONGS of tourists. It was just what we wanted at Round Island Kitchen. I’m so glad we made a reservation.

The service was awful each time we patronized the restaurant. It really put a damper on our vacation. We had expectations of a restaurant up to par. It was not.

Live music inside is very loud. It’s a hotel resturant. Nothing special as the website makes it look. Food was very good though. We sat out on the patio and had a nice few of the lawn ans lake.

Overpriced for the mediocre food. Desperately needs update in decor. Service was good with a fairly attentive and kind server and very sweet hostesses. Overall would not recommend.

We don’t recall the last time we reviewed a restaurant but the Round Table was so disappointing that I’d like to try to save other visitors from wasting their money. We don’t hesitate overspending on dining; the overpriced menu was understandable considering the beautiful ambiance. We ordered an appetizer and five meals, and every dish was HORRIBLE. The $20 entree salad was an unimpressive side salad and consisted primarily of wilted, bitter kale. The lamb in the lamb gyro was overcooked and cold. The Mac and cheese was equivalent to Velveeta. The cheeseburger was flavorless and dry, and $22 quinoa bowl was so small, we almost got the impression they were struggling to afford the ingredients. We also ordered the $17 beef nachos. The four slices of beef were drenched in such a large amount of cheap sauce, that you could barely taste the beef. The menu reads delicious but the food is basic at best and terrible at worst. When I approached the manager to let her know how disappointed we were with every meal, her uninterested, blank stare was consistent with the flavor and presentation of their meals. There was a time that Mission Point rivaled the Grand, but the Mission Point needs to recognize that they have let their standards drop. The almost empty balcony overlooking the extraordinary view of the greens and lake is indicative that the view isn’t enough to bring folks in to spend Grand prices on Mission Point food. There are plenty other restaurants- the Carriage House, the Pink Pony, Seabiscuit, the Jockey Club- to overspend on food. Mission Point should consider lowering their prices until they can bring their standards back up. Hopefully, enough visitors will steer clear until they’re forced to re-evaluate this establishment. If you have to visit, get drinks while you wait for your table at another restaurant. Side note: our server was a doll and should consider working at another restaurant where I’m sure she’d make substantially more money.

They not just a sports bar, but also have lovely outdoor seating overlooking the water. Total experience was very enjoyable and we will go back again to this little gem. It is worth the walk out to Mission Point to dine here.

Our waiter was working both outside decks and I believe it was too much to cover.

My nachos needed way more of the vegetables and meat slices needed to be cut smaller. It was about a 80% wonton chips to 10% meat and 10% veggies. My husband’s fish sandwich was mediocre. Overall experience was so-so. However, the atmosphere was awesome and relaxing.

I would give it another opportunity but would not recommend as a “go to” for a great meal 😕

Our waitress didn’t pay too much attention to us! We asked for straws when given water never received them till our drinks came and so I went to the bar to get them! Took forever to get our bill asked another worker to find our waitress and she was lost!
Chairs wicker need to be either painted or replaced!
The Kale Panzinella was more of a Kale Caesar Salad should be more described as such!
Brussel sprouts were amazing as well as the white fish!
Need to sell the Round House so more visitors besides guests use the restaurant! At 7:00 the place should have had more people!

Horrible service!!! Beyond slow, wait staff brought food with no utinsela and never seen again for over 30 min. Had to take from a different table. Ask for condiments and you will never get them either. They have hostess staff that should be waitstaff as they are far more attentive. The wait staff needs to be Completely replaced.

Great place for breakfast after watching a beautiful sunrise! We made reservations on the 4th of July because we weren’t sure how busy it was going to be. We had such a beautiful view of the lake. Food was amazing. You get a good amount of food for the price! Definitely would come here again.

Wait staff is horrible!!! They import a bunch if Haitians or soemthing that barely speak English for the season and have them waiting tables, they are slow, no personality, and not attentive at all. Our so called waitress brought our appetizer and walked away. We had no utensils etc. Never saw the lady again for about 25 min and that was after we had to speak to a manager. Food came out, they give u a squirt of ketchup in a tiny cup for a burger and fries. I asked for more and finished my burger before I got it. Highly over priced for portions and food is so so. You absolutely dont need a reservation no matter how much they push the need. The place is empty!!!

Beautiful view if you are seated outside. Busy summer night but definitely understaffed. Took a long time for drinks. Appetizers and entrees came out together. Salads very watery at bottom of bowls. Whitefish was dry and overcooked. Disappointing.

We arrived to a very sparse setting. We asked to be seated outside as I am compromised just finishing chemo. The hostes reluctantly agreed and when we were being seated the outside area was mostly empty We asked for a tube next to the railing a bit sunnier and she said no. It remained empty the entire time we were there. I was disappointed to say the least. The food was underwhelming.
It was our anniversary we are celebrating. We had lunch at the PinkPony which was excellent and lunch today at the Gate House again excellent

This was our second visit in as many years. Overall, food wasn't bad, but not amazing. The drinks were actually great though; we had the Blueberry Mojito and the Mackinac Art Mule. We sat at a high top table in the bar area again this year and the service was lacking. Understanding that the staffing situation is bad everywhere, the bartender was also responsible for our table service and we were only visited to order food /drinks, food delivery and for the check. He was too busy making drinks in the service bar for the rest of the restaurant and didn't really have the time to visit us, which is not his fault. Would have ordered more drinks and desserts if we were asked but we weren't even given the option. We will probably skip the place next summer.

Food was great, waiter kept disappearing. We waited 18 minutes to receive our drinks after ordering them. I understand everyone is short staffed right now, but restaurants had 3 tables full when we arrived. Several tables who arrived and ordered after us received their food first. Food was good, service could use improvement.
