We had already eaten dinner elsewhere so we did not get a chance to try the food before stumbling over the Dixie. It was clean, cheery, spacious and well run. Ask for the owner. He spends 6 months here and 6 months at his other place in Daytona, hence the reference to Dixie in an definitely northern area.

Bad service, asked for to bring a bottle of wine they wouldn't let as. Knowing that Michigan has passed the law for any store with a liquor license to allow customers to bring there own liquor if they want too. Didn't argue with them just had dinner and left. Customer comes first.

This place looks great from the outside, but I didn't find anything special about dining here. However, I did not order any of their fish, which, did look good. I ordered a salad and my guest ordered a sandwich... both of which we could have made ourselves. They didn't taste bad, it just wasn't much. The homemade chips were good.... More

We found nothing special about this restaurant. It was over priced with average food that I could have made in my own kitchen. The tables were very close together, made it difficult to move around when arriving, using the bathroom and leaving. Staff were friendly and attentive.

My husband had the ribs. He said they were great! I had the half chicken, baked potato and ceasar salad. The ceasar salad was the only thing I cared for. We have eaten here many times in the past when we have traveled to Mackinaw City and it was always amazing. I don't know if due to being off season... More

We visited during the off season so the place was pretty empty during dinner time. The draft beer options were decent compared to other places in the area. Food is average bar fare.

I was very impressed with this place, our server was one of the best servers I have had in a long time. We had our young daughter with us and our server was amazing with her. Even though she was busy she took the time with us and really made us feel like we were her only table. We got... More

My family and I went for New Years Eve. Our food was not very good. We ordered the Ribs, Prime Rib, and two kids Mac & Cheese meals. It was quite pricey for the quality of food served. I don't mind paying $100 for a meal if it's worth the money but I've had better meals at Applebee's, which isn't... More

We were here for our anniversary on December 13th. The hostess and waitress were both very friendly and attentive. The food was, as always, excellent, and the beer was cold. I have no problem with making The Dixie Saloon a stop every time my wife and I are in Mackinaw. I highly recommend it.

Thank John W
