We ate breakfast and dinner here and enjoyed both. The French toast is fantastic.... it looked and tasted as good as it looks in the picture on the website. We had burgers for dinner and both were cooked perfectly and very juicy. The soft pretzel as an appetizer was unique and tasted very fresh. Dessert had a beautiful presentation and was a tasty end to the meal.

I've always thought of the Pink Pony as a late night stop for appetizers and drinks and often some live music. Although that is the case, I recently experienced another atmosphere that adds to what this must try island stop has to offer.An amazing waterfront patio (Heated on cool evenings) with delicious high quality food, drinks, and exceptional service. The whitefish was our favorite, but everything was amazing. Expect to pay average to above average Mackinac Island prices. Worth it!

Uri from Jamaica at the Pink Pony was a great server! The food, drinks and service were great! Even stopped by and picked up some souvenir glasses in their signature bag! They were recommended by friends and did not disappoint. Best food so far this trip! It was our first time there. Had my kids too! Definitely be back!Thank you

Of the three or four spots that my party visited for drinks on Mackinaw Island, this was my favorite. Attentive staff kept the drinks coming while we waited at the bar for an outdoor seat. The Pony has a cozy feel. Numerous craft and domestic beers to choose from, as well as a full bar for harder drink options. Once we were seated outside, we took in a beautiful view of the port while a talented two-piece band played/sang music in front of the water. The patio was busy, but again, our service was great. We ordered lunch and there were no complaints. My burger in particular was pretty good, and the sweet potato fries were some of the best I've had. I'd recommend a visit if you're trying to choose.

So good we went here twice! First visit was for lunch. They had a 30-45 minute wait so we sat at the bar which is first come, first serve.Our appetizer was the smoked whitefish that is served warm. It was suburb. Our lunch entree’s son were the Santa Fe wrap and gourmet patty melt. Both were excellent. The Santa Fe might be a better choice since it is lighter and if you’re going to continue to bicycle around the island.We stopped again during dinner time for drinks since earlier we overheard the bartender say they serve 70,000 of their signature Rum runner drinks a season. We had one (or maybe more) with a dark rum topper. Fantastic! I can see why it is their signature drink.Low top, booth, bar and patio seating. Fast, friendly service. Be prepared for a wait during peak times. Pricy but as I say to balance things out “It’s cheaper than Vegas.” I would definitely recommend.

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)
