    When was your visit?


    The Pink Pony Bar & Grill
    Mackinac Island (Est. 1948)

    “But Mackinac’s such a tourist trap,” many Michiganders will say, probably en route to Mackinac. And they’d be correct. But it’s also a place visited by 95% of the population, and it kind of rules. Located where Lakes Michigan and Huron meet in between the Upper and Lower Peninsulas, the island has no cars, and can only be reached by boat or ferry. Which is a good thing, because odds are that whether you’re up for one of the annual sailboat races or just visiting for a night, you’re getting down at the Pony. The place — which looks like Bilbo Baggins and Barbie co-designed it — hosts live music, rowdy parties, and includes one of the most gorgeous patios in the country, with a panoramic view that hammers home the reason they’re not called “Pretty Good Lakes.” If this is a tourist trap, we’re glad to be ensnared. – Thrillist (The Most Iconic Bar in Every State)

    Your waiters Elliot and Alex ( Matthew McConahay) are the best. We were blessed to have Elliot last September when we visited. When we showed up this week Elliot made his way over to us to say hi as he remembered us. To our family that speaks volumes. We try to sit where Elliot would be our waiter, and now if Elliot is off for the day we will try and make sure we have Alex.

    I just saw on TV how The Pink Pony helped a couple who’s wedding was interrupted by a fire and you helped them out at no charge. GOOD FOR YOU!!!!!!!!! You make me proud to be a Michigander. My wife and I always ear at The Pink Pony every time we visit the Island. Great place and great people!

    Andy is a blast, he was the best part of our trip at the Pink Pony. If you go, he is a must request for a bartender.

    Great time at the Pink Pony and the food was awesome. Our server Zak did an excellent job. He was courteous, friendly and answered all our questions. Can’t wait to return here again.


    Megan the host was SO incredibly helpful with guidance to get a spot on the popular Pink Pony patio tonight! We will see you bright and early for breakfast tomorrow, per her advice as well 🙂 Thanks, Megan & Pink Pony!

    Over the weekend we went to the Pink Pony for both lunch and dinner, we had Alex as our server and he was AMAZING! I can’t say enough good things about this place and having him as our waiter- he was very professional and extremely kind! He could tell I was a die hard Pink Pony fan and made dinner extra amazing! Thank you for hiring such awesome staff and for having the best service and food on the island- I will never stop eating at your restaurant and shopping at your store- hands down my favorite reason to come to the island!! #ponyup💗🐴

    Our waiter was Zak and he was fun,very professional,organized and was very accommodating. He did not rush us. Zak was very informative. He was courteous and kind. We need more people like him. He represented Pink Pony very well. The food was delicious.

    I have been to the Pink Pony several times but this was my girlfriends first time and she loved every minute of it! Duwayne was our server on a very busy hot day but he did a fantastic job! I could tell that a few tables were being extra needy but I could tell that he was handling everything professionally and was giving great service. He was very personable and made our experience that much better! Thanks Duwayne!


    Alex, your new waiter, is fantastic! We were very impressed with his service!!


    Very rare are all of your expectations met or exceeded. Waiter Jay provided us with the best possible experience under the current times. We felt comfortable and the food was everything we were told it would be. Choosing to people watch in a street view booth may not have been the same as boat watching on the deck, but we’ll leave that as something to look forward to next time … and there WILL be a next time! Cheers
