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.

Mackinac Island (Est. 1948)
By LEE BRESLOUER
“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)
