Always love Seabiscuit for their great food and service. They are opened late, which saved us one night because other places closed early due to a rainy day. I had the mini pasties and my husband had the whitefish, and both were hot, delicious, and...More

Whenever I come up north I always make it a point to have some Whitefish. I had the tacos and my wife had the Whitefish Reuben. Both were very delicious. All of the staff seemed very friendly and helpful which made our experience here enjoyable.

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.
