The pizza buffet is a fantastic deal. The pizza is good! The staff are great and friendly. You can try different pizzas and see if you like something other than the basic cheese and pepperoni. This town has it figured out for hockey tournaments that's for sure. We have been three times and BC Pizza is always on the list of stops when we go!

Molly Moo's

Reviewed By Matt S - Brighton, Michigan

Molly Moo's had some great ice cream selections, with very generous scoop sizes. Definitely expect the place to be crowded, but if you end up at a table outside, you do have some good views of the waterfront, making for a very enjoyable experience. Definitely don't hesitate to stop here for a frozen treat!

Village Inn

Reviewed By Jim S - Whitchurch-Stouffville, Canada

We dined at this restaurant, along with some friends, while visiting Mackinac Island recently. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Well prepared, well priced, along with very good service. We like it so much that we went back the next night to try something else on the menu. Highly recommend this restaurant should you decide to stay in St Ignace.

Wonderful family restaurant. Very clean and quiet. Wonderful homemade soup. Ribs were super. Tender and just tight amount of sauce. My daughter had grilled chicken sandwich. Perfectly cooked. You have to try the peanut butter dessert. Don't miss this one. Prices were reasonable too. Nice selection of local microbrews and wines.

Java Joe's Cafe

Reviewed By L1378MJmelissah - Clare

I have been going to the UP for years. Java Joe's is a must visit on all my trips. The atmosphere is wonderful, people are friendly and you can hear everyone having a nice time. If you are a collector of tea pots there are tea pots all around the tops of the walls and they are for sale if you spot one you like. Also, their menu is a newspaper and they put information and places to see in the upper peninsula in there. Love Love Love this place. They are open 7:30 am to 1:00 pm.

The Galley Restaurant

Reviewed By slorettao - Grand Rapids, Michigan

We asked for a good place to get a whitefish dinner and The Galley was recommended. Aside from waiting to be acknowledged by a server after being seated (turned out to be a glitch in the servers’ table assignments) for at least 15 minutes, the rest of our experience was awesome. Nice view of the harbor-we could watch the boats coming in from Mackinac Island. Drinks were good. My husband ordered the whitefish liver and onions appetizer-a northern Michigan delicacy and not always available and he raved about them. I had blackened whitefish and my husband had the Great Lakes sampler (fried lake trout, walleye, perch, and whitefish). The fish was delicious and all was prepared well. Entrees are accompanied by a choice of 2 sides-soup, salad, veggies, fries, baked potato. The veggies tonight were very good-a medley of carrots, parsnips, and zucchini. We were too full for dessert, but pie is the house specialty. We will eat here again when we next visit the area. Great service after the initial glitch.
