We stopped here around 11:30am on a Tuesday during our bike ride around the perimeter of the island. This little stand is located at British Landing (so about half way around the island if you start in Downtown). We ordered the fried pickles and chili cheese fries. The fried pickles were good. The chili cheese fries were ok, but the... More

We always stop here when we go around the island the food is great but the service is always a little slower this time of year but the food makes up for it is outside dining so be careful of the seagulls diving down for your food

You have to stop and get something at Cannonball while on your bike ride around M-185. We decided to grab a small lunch while here. We each ordered a Polish Dog, which were generously-sized and delicious. We also ordered several orders of deep-fried pickles. I don't care for pickles, but I tried them. The coating is amazing......looks like they put... More

Cycling on a warm day, we needed to stop every once in a while. The stop at the Cannonball Inn had everything a cyclist could ask for a pit stop. There is shade, water, restrooms, picnic tables, and ice cream. There is other food, too, but we only had a small cone. Our first reaction when we got it was... More

It was our first time biking around the island and we found this to be a pleasant stop. There are many picnic tables and separate restroom facilities. The food is spendy but most everything on the island is. My daughter liked the chicken tenders, husbands chili dog was good and my cheeseburger was also good. Fries were hot and the... More

Located at the British Landing, the Cannonball Inn is a great place to rest and refresh while biking or hiking around the island. Snacks, hot food and drinks are available and picnic tables are nearby.

We came upon the Cannonball on a bike ride through the island. Tasty treats right next to the (rocky) beach. Great vibe. Stop by for an ice cream on your bike ride around the island.

Nice little food stand restaurant halfway around the island. However, for eight dollars I expected a little more heartier of a burger basket-The burger was quite small. However, they do serve Hotdogs and soft serve ice cream. I used a restaurant.com coupon and brought total bill of $31 for the three of us down to $16.

The Cannonball is basically a ice-cream stand located approximately 1/2 way around Mackinaw Island on M-185 about 4 miles outside of downtown. (Michigan's only state highway that does not allow motor vehicles). There is no inside seating, there are picnic tables outside. Besides ice-cream products and soft-drinks they do offer burgers, dogs, sandwich specials, and more -- and fried pickles.

Great little pit stop on the back side of the island. Grab something to eat and drink and take a break and sit down and relax on one of the picnic tables. Don't forget to head to the bathroom right next door. My recommendation is to try one of their famous dill pickles!
