Popped in late afternoon for an early dinner. The portions sizes were great and the food was delicious. The beer choices were typical and compare to the rest of the island.

We got seated right away at 630. I had the cherry glazed short ribs with asparagus. The ribs were so tender and flavorful it was awesome. A little fatty but plenty of good meat. The cherry demi glaze was great. I would definitely come back...More

We walked in for an early dinner and had no wait at all. Our waiter was cheerful and helpful as we made our selections. Portions were generous and the food was top-notch. If you order the Cuban Cristo, ask for a bit more pepper jelly....More

We waited a while to be seated, and a little while more for the food, but boy was it worth it. Small seating area, but the food was delicious and worth the wait. My friend and I shared the Cuban Cristo and the Pork Avocado...More

I'm leaning on no, but only because I wasn't overly impressed with the food or service. Couldn't hurt to fire off an email to the restaurant, though...

This fabulous Mackinac Island eatery features an appropriate horse theme from the 1938 true life story of the famous horse, Seabiscuit. A great deal of care was taken to restore the original brick surfaces, hardwood floors and new furnishings have transformed the 1800’s bank building into a cozy, comfortable restaurant.

An excellent casual menu appropriately fits this charming place. Seabiscuit fans rave about the Lobster Roll, Deep Fried Macaroni Balls, Guinness Cheese Crock, Whitefish Chowder And Warm Apple Carrot Cake. Top it off with a Manmosa, a mango infused vodka with champagne.

A fine wine selection is available along with a full bar so stop in for an afternoon cocktail or stay for the evening sipping your favorite martini.
