“Captured Customers on British Landing”
Reviewed 28 March 2013

The only canteen on their side of Mackinac Island. After riding bikes to this destination, it's fun to stop and enjoy the beautiful vistas with a drink and/or a bite to eat.

“beautiful view for a picnic”
Reviewed 13 October 2012

Anyone looking for a gourmet meal will have to go back to the other side of the island because this isn't it. However, after riding your bike halfway around Mackinac Ilsand, it's a great place to stop for a snack or meal. The food was quite good and service was as quick as you could expect considering how busy they are. Picnic tables give a great view over the lake. Can't think of a beter place to stop and rest on a multi-mile bike ride.

“Famous Fried Pickles”
Reviewed 18 August 2012 via mobile

My husband and I stopped by Cannonballs on our bike trip around the island for a snack. We went for their famous fried pickles. They were very good and it is a cute place to stop for a treat on a bike ride. Seating is a lot of picnic tables with beautiful views of the lake. Menu includes other snack items. No indoor seating and you order at a counter.

“It's good, but understand what it is”
Reviewed 13 August 2012

The Cannonball Inn is a fast food restaurant and ice cream stand located at about the mid-point of the loop around Mackinac Island. They offer things like hamburgers, hot dogs, various fried foods, and soft serve ice cream. It is a great place to stop for a snack as you are riding around the island. While there are lots of picnic tables around the restaurant, there is no indoor seating. In fact, there is no "indoors." You stand outside and order through a window. Also, there isn't a designated "pick up" window, so it can get a bit crowded around the windows with people in line to order while others are still standing there waiting for their food. My wife and I only ordered ice cream, which was good for soft serve. However, I did hear several people sitting around us say that they enjoyed their meals. Based on that experience, I would not hesitate to order something more substantial the next time I'm there. The prices are certainly more expensive than you would pay for similar meals in non-tourist areas of the mainland, but they are relatively inexpensive for the island.

So if you are looking for something to eat while biking around the island, or if you are staying away from town toward the north end of the island, then the Cannonball Inn is clearly worth visiting. However, if you are in town and looking for a place to eat, it is probably not worth a special trip.

“Average but welcome”
Reviewed 25 July 2012

Nothing really special here to note but the location. When doing the bike trip around the island, it is a welcome stop. The ice cream is average as was the service.
