Nothing pre-packaged or premise here. My husband and I ate 2 breakfasts here and both time we experienced great service and wonderful omelettes. The biscuits were homemade and wonderful. The veggies in the omelette were very fresh. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The hotel staff recommended we try this establishment. Definitely putting Darrows on our list of places to go while vacationing in mackinaw. They offer homemade breads, jams, and pies. Everybody was happy with their meals. Food was really good. Average plate price was 8-12 dollars.

This is a GREAT place to eat. Don't let a line discourage you, they move people and parties thru quickly. The staff is very knowledgeable of their offerings and their food is like eating at grandma's. Save room for some of their homemade desserts....they are...More
