Went for dinner and had to wait a short time, but ordered the chicken dinner and it was really good. Seems like a lot of regulars go in there. Staff was nice and friendly, food was brought out in a timely manner.

Had a very yummy breakfast in this quaint restaurant. My husband had the pancakes with the choice of 3 syrups;maple, homemade blueberry and strawberry. I have a cheese omelette with homemade rye which was delicious! Service was great and the pies looked so good!

Great food, great service and great value. We never miss eating at Darrow's while in Mackinaw. You just can't beat it. Homemade everything! Be prepared to stand in line unless you choose to eat at an off peak time.
