We visited in December so only a few restaurants were open. When we've been here in the summer, we've ended up at other places even though this was my favorite place when we visited many years ago. Well, we ended up here three times and...More

The Seabiscuit offers a really good variety of meals to choose from. Burgers, seafood, chicken and the list goes on. Food is priced fairly for the amount you receive. We really enjoyed all of our selections.

Not a ton of seating here, but charming decor and quick service. Quite a large choice of items on the menu. We had an early dinner and just beat the rush so we didn’t have to wait.

Very good food on the cheap. Alcohol served, didn't partake. Service seemed slow but more leisurely. Worth a small wait.

I'm leaning on no, but only because I wasn't overly impressed with the food or service. Couldn't hurt to fire off an email to the restaurant, though...

This fabulous Mackinac Island eatery features an appropriate horse theme from the 1938 true life story of the famous horse, Seabiscuit. A great deal of care was taken to restore the original brick surfaces, hardwood floors and new furnishings have transformed the 1800’s bank building into a cozy, comfortable restaurant. An excellent casual menu appropriately fits this charming place. Seabiscuit fans rave about the Lobster Roll, Deep Fried Macaroni Balls, Guinness Cheese Crock, Whitefish Chowder And Warm Apple Carrot Cake. Top it off with a Manmosa, a mango infused vodka with champagne. A fine wine selection is available along with a full bar so stop in for an afternoon cocktail or stay for the evening sipping your favorite martini.
