We stopped in here after a long day of hiking. We ordered a burger and fries and beer. The beer was ice cold, and the burgers were great!

The service was great and the atmosphere was fine, but the food was not good at all. Everything I ate was overly seasoned and doused in sauces. The artichoke dip was too cream cheesy and left me feeling sick. I ate scallops, which I normally love, but you could hardly taste the scallops for the salty sauce that they were... More

One of our favorite restaurants for dinner, especially early or late in the season when it's a little chilly and they have a fire going.

We have traveled to Mackinac several times and always eat dinner at the Yankee Rebel. They have the best pot roast in the world!

We were looking for a place to have a quick & good lunch before our Gough private carriage tour & this was good. Alot of the restaurants don't open until 12noon, but we needed to be done by then. So a great find for time & favor!

We just happened upon this restaurant one day and it just felt homey! Had a drink at the bar and decided to stay for dinner. The atmosphere was perfect and the food was very good. Would definitely come back if in the area.

The atmosphere is like a pub/sportsbar meets fine dining if you can picture that. It had an old feel trussed up in modern eveningwear. The room is relaxed and unpretentious. The food was a 5 out of 5 serving up straight Comfort food at affordable prices. My lovely wife had the chicken stew wrapped in pastry and I had the... More

Went there for a beer after a long day of walking the island. The craft beers were good and the atmosphere was friendly.

We decided to try this restaurant on a cold and rainy evening. We were very happy with our choice. The fire was burning in the fireplace, the service was excellent and the food was very good. We had the salmon with vegetables and rice and the Chicken Puff Pastry. They also brought warm rolls and our drinks right away. The... More

Good, not great, standard American food at the Yankee Rebel about par for the course in Mackinac where junk food offerings abound despite the creative menu prose.
