This is a pub that is welcoming, visually pleasing, and serves good lunch fare. Recommend the chili with onions and cheese!

Was really disappointed. Went into the restaurant and asked if they could seat a table of five, the waitress went to look and came back stating they could only seat 4. Really🤔

We ate here on a Friday 1 p.m., there were seven of us, three children and four adults. They were busy but no waiting for a table, very good turnover. We had adult beverages and sandwiches for lunch. Out of seven of us not one...More

Love this locals hang. Great burgers. Awesome friendly service. Quaint, good value, nice beer list...we watched the Preds in the Stanley Cup Finals with some other Nashville fans and felt right at home. I miss this place.

We got a recommendation from a local based on "good food". He said the ribs and wet burrito were both very good and they were. Onion rings very good- nice light batter. The place has a really cool hometown feel. Service was good as well.

The Key Hole is a family friendly bar/restaurant right in the midst of downtown Mackinaw City. Our waitress was friendly, and attentive. We ordered basic eats, and everything was tasty and fresh. The key theme was a hoot!
