This place is so overrated. It is on the beautiful Cheboygan River, but not all of the tables have a river view (not many at all) and the boats pulled up to the dock block the river view anyways. The food is fair, small portions, & high priced. We find it more enjoyable to pack food, anchor somewhere on the... More

Built in 1894 as a hunting and fishing lodge, the Hack-Ma-Tack has a rich and interesting history. The atmosphere of the restaurant has a rustic elegance with a uniqueness that one has to experience for themselves. Specialties include slow roasted prime-rib, fresh whitefish, South African lobster, and an extensive wine list. The bar area is highly decorated with stuffed game... More

I had not been to Hack Ma Tack for many (many...many) years and wanted to share it with my husband on our recent trip to the Cheboygan area. Our meals --- his prime rib and my whitefish --- were excellent. Salads were fresh and crisp. The pumpkin pie on special was the best I have ever had. Service was top... More

This once great Resteraunt is in bad need of a major makeover. The menu promises more thanks delivers especially considering the prices. We went on a night where it was maybe 50% capacity and it took forever to get our meal. Too bad.

This is an interesting place. Directly on the river and a little out of the way. Food was very good. Perch was outstanding. A little bit over priced but worth every bite!

I have to agree with previous reviewers this place is very $$$ for what you get...food wise nothing special. We had the French onion soup, not what you would except for $8 a bowl.. Then I had the Caesar salad with salmon. Both lacked flavor, I normally like my food on the more bland side but this was VERY bland.... More

Great view but way over priced! Be sure to check your bill because they tack on additional items. The waitress knew exactly what she had done wrong, even before she looked at our bill when we called her over. BIG SCAM! And the son of the owners did not even care!

Visited on weeknight as a group of 3 couples on vacation. Remembered this place from years past and had high expectations. Decor was very nice and views of the river good. Expected food to be fantastic, but it was not. Several had lake perch and it was ok, not great. One salmon entree was way overdone, not reported since all... More

My wife and I had been to the Hack twice over the past 20 years and decided we needed a fix. We drove to Cheboygan and planned an overnight stay just so we could eat at the hack ma tack. We were not disappointed. The steak and lobster was wonderful. Never had better. Key lime pie was light and delicious.... More

This place was so unique and quaint!! The service was top notch. We had an appetizer, French onion soup and we each got a dinner sized salad. Everything was delicious and perfectly portioned! We did not have an entree, but the dishes looked amazing. Only downfall was the entrees were very pricey, but they looked like they were worth it!... More
