We had breakfast here the morning we left to come home and after a disasterous start we ended on a high note for sure. The bacon was wonderful, the eggs were cooked perfectly and the pancakes were tasty, fluffy, sweet and cooked to perfection. Simply put ... do not miss out on this one folks... you will be pleased!

We went here for breakfast and the food was good. Pancakes only were $10 and 3 very thin ones. If you are hungry they will not fill you up.

A little pricey, but very good experience overall. Perfect place for Sunday morning brunch type cuisine. Prompt service, even when busy.

Omelets were the best! A little disappointed with the pancakes but the service was also good! Not a bad little breakfast stop.

There's something special about pancakes so good, they smell like a cake baking in the oven. In a place like Mackinac, where you can get every lavish thing you want, it's great to find someplace that offers both the fancy and the simple. I highly recommend the pecan pancakes.

This restaurant was good, but they were very crowded. It was very busy when we were there which is probably a good sign. I would recommend having breakfast here.

We had been hiking all morning and had walked for over three hours and had had a most enjoyable day on the Island and decided to stop for a bite of lunch. Since they weren't crowed, we went in and got a very pleasant welcome. We both got the pattie melts and they were very good. Good thick shakes! Most... More

The food at the Pancake House was fine, and the prices were in the expected range for restaurants on Mackinac Island. We did have to wait about 25 minutes to be seated, even though we could see 4 empty tables through the window. We were not in a hurry, so that wasn't too much of an issue for us. Joseph,... More

Stopped by before boarding the 9:30 ferry. Came due to a protein-free "gourmet" breakfast at the B&B. Warmly greeted when we came in, immediately served coffee! Had the meat lover's omelet which was one of the best I have had (and I do not like eggs!). Wife had pancake and egg...devoured everything. A gem. I would go back again and... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch and the food was good. The place was clean and the service was good. The food was good and pricing was not bad for being on a island.
