Great outdoor place to people and boat watch! Service is excellent! Food is above average. We went twice during our Mackinac Island vacation!

Stopped in for a drink, great bloody Mary's, no problem for my gluten free husband. Ended up having lunch and spending the afternoon. Wonderful seats outside in the shade, people watching, enjoying the day. Great Service!

Liked the atmosphere. Dinner there was okay, nothing spectular nor memorable. Dinks at the bar with appetizers better than the dinner. Bartenders were friendly as were the guests at the bar.

Thanks for reviewing your experience! Wait time is common during peak season, however we send text message notifications when a table is ready so that guests can enjoy the island during their wait. More

Great casual place to hang with family and friends for food and drinks! Kid Rock, Pamela Anderson, and owner of Jimmy John's restaurants stopped by in their yachts, and came to the Pink Pony a few weeks before we arrived! Comfortable place to go, but most food choices lean toward the greasy/unhealthy side.

We were here with kids and luckily this place had greats eats for both adults and kids. Adult drinks were wonderfully delicious and being outside over looking the marina was so very nice.

Always have to go to the Pink Pony at least once when we're on the island. They are very kid friendly too!

So many restaurants along the lakefront in Mackinac are pricey and this was a nice relief for our trip. Along the strip there are soo many fudge shops and high end dinner spots, but the Pink Pony is exactly what you want, a laid-back environment along the water to just hang out and watch boats go by. The setting, staff,... More

We met up with friends after dinner and a sunset walk to enjoy a few drinks and the beautiful weather. The staff was wonderful and the drinks were even better. Great place for a fun night!

I visited the store connected with the Pink Pony this summer and purchased an awesome canvas tote. A few months later I was checking out their web site and found some great pint glasses. I ordered two on a Sunday evening and from Mackinac Island they arrived at my door on Wednesday afternoon. Both glasses were well packaged and included... More
