Stayed at the hotel and had the pleasure of dining at the Carriage House two nights. Had the diver scallops and risotto - sweet, succulent scallops, great risotto. Second night, my husband had the pork chop with the chutney and I had the spinach and garlic ravioli with shrimp - both were divine. We tried each other's dinners. Should have... More

Great views, nice menu and very good food. My wife enjoyed lobster tail which was not quite done. Mine was a tomahawk pork chop which was very good with a chutney sauce. Nice experience except for the undercooked lobster which was handled very nicely.

Without a doubt this is restaurant offers the best food on the island. The setting is beautiful, the food is superb (try the scallops or ravioli), and the service is unequaled. We spent almost three hours there for dinner and conversation with friends and never felt like there was any pressure vacate our table. This is the place to go... More

Perfect spot on the lake to enjoy a glass of wine & appetizers at the end of our day on the island. We wanted to catch the 6:30 Ferry back to Mackinaw City or we would probably have stayed for dinner. I ordered the Crab Stack which was excellent and my husband ordered the Shrimp Cocktail - 2 jumbo gulf... More

Friends recommended the Carriage House to us and we were certainly not disappointed. Beautiful view in a lovely hotel. I chose the tomahawk pork chop w/ cherry apple chutney and it was delicious. Hubby had steak which he also enjoyed. I would have loved to stay at the Iroquois, but unfortunately it was booked up when we planned our trip.

Excellent lunch on the patio over looking the waters edge and the ferry boat traffic. Try the lemon meringue pie or peach sundae for dessert.

By far this is my favorite place to eat on the island. The view is spectacular. The meals are a bit on the pricey side for what you get...but it is all very tasty. We eat there every time we visit the island. (a couple times a summer. )
