Stopped by with the family. Atmosphere was good and it's right on the main drag in Traverse City (Front St.)

Beers were very standard microbrew - a red, a stout, an APA, an IPA, a wheat, etc, etc, etc. Best one was their "gateway" beer the G.T. Golden.

Food was...okay but not much to write home about.

Overall fairly blah. Better than not eating/drinking at a brewpub, but not the best place in Northern Michigan.

I had a sampler of about 6 beers I think. It was about $15. The beer was subpar. My favorite was a seasonal wheat beer they had. All the beers lacked body, and taste though. It was the busiest out of the three in Traverse City. But the worst tasting out of all I visited in the area. The beers were easily forgettable. The food was pretty good though. I just wish the beers were better.

Mackinaw brewery has a good feel when you walk in, especially for not being very large. Their service is good too. However, their beer is unflattering. They don't seem to ever expand on their existing brews. They have seven regulars on tap, and that is all they ever have. The one that stands out the most is the most to me is the Nut Brown Ale. This is fairly smooth and not too sweet. The Stout is also smooth, but isn't anything special. I definitely do not recommend the Belgium, way too sweet. I am glad I only tried this. The person who ordered it could not finish it.
