When we are on the island we will eat most meals here. The variety is good, service is excellent and the value is extremely reasonable. A wonderful family atmosphere.

CVI was a nice lunch destination while on Macinac Island. Not terribly pricey. I had the mushroom veggie panini and everyone else got the burger. Very good food! French fries were delicious too. Our service was prompt as well. We sat on the porch.
