vibe: 4 | quality: 3 | service: 4 | selection: 2 | food: 3.5

This is a restaurant first, brewery second. Their beer selection is limited, and rather generic: gold, red, IPA, and just a few others.

The food is good, and great for the price. They have their own smoker, so I tried their smoked meat sampler. The brisket was really, really good. The ribs and sausage were OK.

Mackinaw is a fun place to hang out. It is a long, narrow restaurant with a back, outdoor patio. Since it is located on the main strip in town, it gets a lot of visitors. It feels a lot like a tourist destination, but without too many campy gimmicks.

If you are in the area, it is worth stopping by, but do not seek it out to try the beer. And if you do go, and you are not a vegetarian, get some smoked meat.
