Keyhole Bar - Mackinaw City

My uncle loves a good olive burger, and the Keyhole Bar in Mackinaw City does not disappoint (The Passion Burger!). Our family loves this place, and we have been here a million times. They have been in business for about 30 years, and you see familiar wait staff when you return. I believe that it was remodeled about 10 years ago (maybe more than that now?). I remember the old exterior, and the fact that there always seemed to be a bat or two hanging around by the door. No bats anymore, though!  

The Keyhole Bar in Mackinaw City
The Bar is right on a touristy strip near the Mackinac Bridge, but the interior feels very local. Expect to wait a bit on busy days, but it's worth it. I believe on the day of the Bridge Walk, we waited about 1.5 hours.  It was fine, because that's about how long my Grandma needed to wait while we walked!  They have great burgers at a great price, but also have Michigan items like Walleye, and Perch. They are known for their Onion Rings and Whitefish Fingers, but my Aunt and Uncle had something a little different the day that they went - Taco salad and a huge Burrito.

Food at the Keyhole Bar

As the name suggests, there are keys glued on everything throughout the bar. If you are making your way up to the UP, be sure to stop in here for a bite to eat. Thanks to my Aunt, Uncle, and Grandma who visited recently and took these pictures for me! The Keyhole Bar's facebook page: www.facebook.com/goodtimesgoodfood
