Laurel learned her craft mainly at one of Portland's best restaurants. Her menu is limited to a few great choices and the wine list is solid. We have been here many times and find the food to be of very high quality as is the service. The restaurant is small with simple décor in a historic downtown building.

A nice variety of seasonal, intriguing dinners that hit the mark...for beef, seafood, chicken and pastas. For our first dinner during summer 2015 and our second dinner in June 2016, the meals were cooked perfectly, and spiced very interestingly and accurate as to the menu description. You can tell a caring and innovative chef is in the kitchen. Quality wine... More

Expect to spend $30-$60 per person here for, well, nothing more than average food. Mackinaws bills themselves as more gourmet upper scale however the food just doesn't live up to it. I've been there three times now and I will have to say at least they are consistent - the food is about the same every time and it's always... More

We are so fortunate to have this exceptionally good restaurant in Lewis County-very worth your stop off of I-5. I've sent several business travelers here and all love it. The chef is amazing-food always surpasses expectations. Pasta, fish, steaks, perfect. Wait staff is happy to be there. It's in the restored former "Washington Hotel". Very charming. My 90 yr old...

Our dinner experience was very good. The service was attentive and the food was surprisingly tasty. The atmosphere was very relaxed but a little loud. Overall a good experience but a little pricey.

Chehalis is so lucky to have such a quality restaurant. Mackinaws never disappoints when it comes to their food. I always get the filet mignon which you can cut with a fork and their desserts are to die for. The only inconsistency is the bar and what is available to drink. Sometimes you can order cocktails and other times it's... More

Bottom line (full review below): -While the food was GOOD, it wasn’t GREAT. There were issues. -This was more like a $50 meal, not a $90 meal. -Very poor and uncomfortable seating ruined the dining experience. -No, we won’t be going back. Your experience may vary from ours. The wife and I like to support local restaurants, so we elected... More

We really enjoyed our dining experience at Mackinaw's. They offer unique entree choices and the dinner salad was fantastic! Also, they have a great wine selection! The attention to detail in their presentation was very pleasing. We will visit again!
