I had not been to Hack Ma Tack for many (many...many) years and wanted to share it with my husband on our recent trip to the Cheboygan area. Our meals --- his prime rib and my whitefish --- were excellent. Salads were fresh and crisp. The pumpkin pie on special was the best I have ever had. Service was top... More

This once great Resteraunt is in bad need of a major makeover. The menu promises more thanks delivers especially considering the prices. We went on a night where it was maybe 50% capacity and it took forever to get our meal. Too bad.

This is an interesting place. Directly on the river and a little out of the way. Food was very good. Perch was outstanding. A little bit over priced but worth every bite!

I have to agree with previous reviewers this place is very $$$ for what you get...food wise nothing special. We had the French onion soup, not what you would except for $8 a bowl.. Then I had the Caesar salad with salmon. Both lacked flavor, I normally like my food on the more bland side but this was VERY bland.... More

Great view but way over priced! Be sure to check your bill because they tack on additional items. The waitress knew exactly what she had done wrong, even before she looked at our bill when we called her over. BIG SCAM! And the son of the owners did not even care!

Visited on weeknight as a group of 3 couples on vacation. Remembered this place from years past and had high expectations. Decor was very nice and views of the river good. Expected food to be fantastic, but it was not. Several had lake perch and it was ok, not great. One salmon entree was way overdone, not reported since all... More

My wife and I had been to the Hack twice over the past 20 years and decided we needed a fix. We drove to Cheboygan and planned an overnight stay just so we could eat at the hack ma tack. We were not disappointed. The steak and lobster was wonderful. Never had better. Key lime pie was light and delicious.... More

This place was so unique and quaint!! The service was top notch. We had an appetizer, French onion soup and we each got a dinner sized salad. Everything was delicious and perfectly portioned! We did not have an entree, but the dishes looked amazing. Only downfall was the entrees were very pricey, but they looked like they were worth it!... More

We found this wonderful restaurant on Trip Advisor and say it's the best we've found on our month long trip from Florida to the Canadian border. Out of the way and tucked along the lakeside of Mullet Lake. We had Whitefish Almondine and lightly battered Perch. Scott, our server, took the time to explain the history of the name of... More

Our party was 12 people and they happily and easily accommodated us. We tried the calamari (amazing!), the cheese plate and the whitefish dip to start and were very happy with all three. My husband ordered the filet and it had to have been one of the best steaks I've tried. I had the whitefish almondine and it was also... More
