The Yankee Rebel Tavern is a Mackinac Island Classic. The Pistachio-crusted whitefish might be the best whitefish on the island. Amazing flavor. My wife got the blue cheese risotto balls with marinara and pesto and thought it was phenomenal.

Add in the friendly atmosphere and Yankee Rebel Tavern is a great choice.

Block off Main Street. Booth, bar and table seating. Windy and cold here this week so seated by operating fireplace. Open until end of month. Good selection of pub food including whitefish, salmon, scallops, and walleye. The whitefish and walleye were well-prepared and fresh. Service was helpful and efficient. Nice selection of beer, wine, and mixed drinks. Did not have wine we initially chosen but server recommended a good substitute. Veggie sandwich and turkey wrap hit the spot. Finished with cream brule in thin custer bowl. $$$.

We had the scallops & the prime rib and were blown away! The risotto and vegetables were 10 and the scallops were in 11. The potatoes with the prime rib were delicious but left behind because the meat was out of this world. Casual atmosphere.

Love the atmosphere in this restaurant! We only waited minutes for a great table, and the service was excellent. A little classier than some restaurants in the area. I would think this was a place for a special occasion dinner. We had an outstanding meal, and I definitely recommend this place.

This restaurant was recommended by Jarad, our guide from Island Carriage Tours. Food was scrumptious, our waiter was on point and attentive, and the establishment was very clean. We'll definitely be back!
