Great pizza. Everything is cooked with love from the kitchen and it shows. Plus being inside the market you can pick up a six pack or done cocktail fixings and a movie for a great night in.

Hoppies Tavern

Reviews:
Garlic shrimp was 5* stars. Nachos were great also. Good ambiance.
What a great find thanks to Yelp! I just had an awesome dish of fish tacos and one of the best bloody Mary's I've had. My husband enjoyed the chicken burrito. It wasn't huge but he said it was delicious. I saw too late that they have an adorable patio. Great place! Check it out!!
I'm giving this such a bad review because of the unbelievably insulting and rude service we received. I was absolutely appalled!!!! Our servers name was Brandy and we have never been so insulted when ordering a drink. For starters, my husband ordered a Bud Light and she insulted him by saying it was a horrible beer. Well....come to find out, she said she had some stupid ex-boyfriend that worked for Budweiser, so she found it necessary to insult anyone who ordered their product. I myself am in the service industry, and the first rule in the industry is to not insult anything anyone is ordering, or make any comments! DUH!!! so like I said...I'm in the industry myself, and well....my husband works for BUDWEISER!!!! She made a BIG mistake. She also doesn't know how deep his roots are with Budweiser. I'll leave that at that. I made it sound like I was joking, but I told her to her face "there goes your tip!" After she saw our reaction, she asked if we had ties to Budweiser. I said "yes!!! That pays our bills!!!!" What a complete idiot!!! I also said out loud that that was the 2nd time on our recent trip that we have been insulted by a server for our choice of beverage. Absolutely unbelievable!!! I ordered a vodka/soda with Titos vodka. Well...she took about 20 mins to bring my second drink and acted like they had to go find some Titos. Yeah right...she just forgot and couldn't be honest enough to admit it. Just the icing on the cake as to why I didn't tip her. As far as the food, the food was great! I had no complaints. My husband and I both had burgers, and my relatives had some of the Mexican items and a fish sandwich. Everybody liked the food. As far as Brandy the server is concerned, we also gave her a bumper sticker from our home town to hang up, and I can bet my life savings that it won't be put up. Really sad because that would have meant a lot to us. She needs to learn to put her personal issues aside in the work place and keep her loud & opinionated mouth to herself. She's screwing herself over, and the restaurant itself. I'd fire her in a heartbeat if I owned the place! She's a cancer to the establishment, and doesn't know the first thing about even decent service. It's a shame because this is a pretty neat place. They just need to pay more attention to the details of their service. If we had even decent service, I probably would have given it 4 stars. I'm giving it 2 stars instead of 1 because of the food.

Yeck Family Drive-In Restaurant

Reviews:
A "Run-A-Way Bill" Favorite ... "Yeck's" is family owned "&" operated, NOT a corporate chain, unique menu selections (fried pizza) & plenty of the basic Americana foods, has personal service, keeps the spirit of the 50's alive, and the atmosphere is pARTy-riffic! I am glad the pARTy Gods made me lucky enough to pass it on my "DUSA Tour" 2015 (Discover USA Tour)! "Run-A-Way Bill" pARTy Reptile (.com) 09/07/15
Health food? No. Classic American food? Absolutely! Burgers in many ways including an olive topping that my husband said was tasty. I got the deep-fried Reuben (potential culinary disaster) which turned out fine indeed. It was fried in a rye dough pocket, not slices of bread, which made all the difference. Great prices and car-side service. Time warp!
The service was fast and friendly. The fried reuben was no longer available which was disappointing. I liked the coleslaw although my fellow diner did not. The fries were not very good, and I would call the milkshakes Ok but nothing exceptional. I had a grilled cheese which was made on a hamburger bun that was good. My fellow diner was not excited about the plain burger.

Big Dipper Ice Cream Parlour

106 S Main St
Cheboygan, 49721
Reviews:
My wife's family has been coming here for years and I heard plenty of stories of the wonderful ice cream before I got to try it myself. Wonderful owner and staff serving delicious, inexpensive ice cream the right way. Always sad to see them close at the end of the season. I recommend the Big Dipper to all!
They finally rolled out the Mackinaw Island Peanut Butter Fudge ice cream and it straight up disappointed. The ice cream had ice crystals throughout which tells me one of three things: 1) the ice cream is old, 2) the ice cream is freezer burnt, or 3) the ice cream is being stored at the wrong temperature. We'll call this our last visit here for the summer as we have noted this problem in the past. When will this owner recommit to the loyal customers that visit here?
My family drove from Clarkston, MI to Mullett Lake every summer from 1990 when I was born through 2009 when I graduated high school. Each trip, we went to the Big Dipper Ice Cream Parlor. It is one of my fondest childhood memories. The atmosphere is very 1950's: checkered floor, vinyl stools, a jukebox. The service was always friendly and the price is reasonable. The ice cream was delicious, my brothers and I always got Blue Moon or Superman, my om would get one of the delicious chocolate or peanut butter flavors, my dad would get Mother Load, and my Grandma would get the frozen yogurt. There are at least 20 varieties to chose from, maybe more. All in all, it's an experience I wish I could have again, love it!

State Street Coffee Company

211 W. State St.
Cheboygan, 49721
Reviews:
The sister of the owner was really friendly and I loved my white chocolate blueberry latte she made for me. My husband and I who own a coffee shop and coffee roasting company in Monroe MI like to stop at coffee shops when we travel. They use Ferris coffee from Grand Rapids MI, and it was good. Loved their nice shop.
Really nice for specialty drinks and scones! Teens went for a Moose Mocha (frozen) and I had the Black Squirrel latte. Yes: Moose and Squirrel. The house coffee today was so-so, we like a darker roast. Small friendly place, humorless barista but she knew her stuff.
Excellent coffee shop in Cheboygan - which is important because it is the only real coffee shop up here. Prices are very reasonable (of course I am from California so I am probably jaded). The espresso was made with a great deal of care and attention - again not something I am used to seeing. Most importantly - my drink tastes great!

This Old House Pizza

112 Jackson St
Cheboygan, 49721
Reviews:
This place is aptly named. The food was average and the interior was typical modest price dinner. My two star rating goes to attitude. The wait staff are interested in delivering food to the table but little else. We eat out often at a variety of restaurants but twice at this place was enough to know that friendly service isn't a priority. If you want good pizza try takeout at Mickey's Mini Mart, across the parking lot.
Great pizza. Highly recommend the deep dish! Lots of cheese and delicious caramelization on the crust. Split pea soup tasted very homemade. Cup of soup, 2 soda pops, large 2 item pizza for $22 (including tax). A steal.
Excellent Pizza! Not too thin, not too thick. Crispy chewy crust browned nicely. I have ordered it to go several times over the years. Always Consistently good. It is definitely the best Pizza in Cheboygan. Stick with the Pizza on this menu and you won't be disappointed.

Step Inn Restaurant

325 N Main St
Cheboygan, 49721
Reviews:
If you're in (or even near) Cheboygan, don't miss Step Inn! My wife and I had breakfast/lunch there, and it was remarkable. The food was all good, but what made it special was that nearly everything was homemade. I had breakfast; just eggs over-medium with wheat toast. The eggs were perfect (firm whites, soft, "dippable" yolks with no hint of anything runny), but the homemade wheat toast was spectacular--SOOOO good. For one thing, you immediately notice the slices are thicker than normal toast. But then you bite into it and that homemade flavor hits--yum. My wife had a hamburger with potato chips; boring, right? Hardly. Well, ok, the burger itself was fairly routine. However, she said the bun (again, apparently homemade) was wonderful. And the potato chips (yes, also homemade) were spectacular. They're huge, crispy, and scrumptious, with just the right amount of "salty." (As you've guessed, I was invited to share.) Add in the atmosphere--a clientele of obvious regulars, with the attendant cheerful conversation--and the friendly, attentive, knowledgeable service, and you get that elusive result so often attempted and so rarely achieved: a unique, neighborhood restaurant with lots of local individuality and really exceptional food. Step Inn is totally casual, with moderate prices. It's probably not going anywhere anytime soon (in business for over 40 years, 10 under current ownership), but if you get the chance, give this exceptional local business your support and get some terrific chow to boot. As their tee-shirts say, "If you're Steppin' Out, Step Inn!"
Stuffed hash browns were really good. Onions, cheese, green peppers and ham. I think the toast was made of bread from in house and it was very good. The waitress was polite and attentive even though she seemed to have every table in the place. For breakfast this place is a good choice. I did not try the coffee so I cannot comment on the quality of the coffee. My fellow diner had a breakfast wrap that she enjoyed.
This is a good breakfast / lunch place. The service is very good. The food is prepared like home. Fresh bread is a really nice touch. The breakfasts are very hearty and tasty. The burgers are great. This is a very solid choice when in Cheboygan.

Your Spirit

414 N Main St
Cheboygan, 49721
Reviews:
Very nice menu. The ingredients are fresh, many things housemade, and the flavors are unique in Cheboygan. We have brought friends who are vegetarian, gluten-free, or dairy-free and all have been kindly treated, their requests considered thoughtfully and graciously. This is by far the most accommodating restaurant in Cheboygan for dietary restrictions. My husband loves the Monte Cristo (on the breakfast menu), I like the panini and salads. We tried the pasties but wouldn't do it again, they're just not in the same league as the UP pasties across the bridge. There are some Australian specialties, like Aussie meat pies and Banofee pie (the owner is Australian), but I haven't had a chance to try them yet. Looking forward to it! The cafe itself is casual, small, and tables are close together, so it's not the best environment for private conversations. Also, the owner's husband likes to chat! ;) The outdoor seating is made enjoyable by the shade umbrellas, even if the view is not the greatest. That being said, I appreciate the efforts that have been made by the owner to diversify the dining scene in Cheboygan.
What a GREAT find in little old Cheboygan. Fresh, delicious, and just amazing. Plenty of choices. Unique ingredients, and everything I have tried has been house made. I have never tried anything here that I didn't like. Everyone we have brought here or recomended it to has absolutly loved it. If you are visiting Cheboygan, Indian River, or Mackinaw City this place has to be on your list. Most folks don't venture out of Mackinaw City when they visit, but just take a scenic drive down 23 along the shore of Lake Huron to Cheboyan and have the best breakfast or lunch in all of Cheboygan or Mackinaw City. My favorites are the Aussie Meat Pies, the twisted BLT (yummy thick cut bacon with chipolte mayo), the Michigan cherry salad, and the desserts are to die for!!! Don't miss the bannoffee pie if you are lucky to get a slice before they sell out. Or just buy a whole pie!! Cupcakes, peach pie, cream puffs. They are all good and made with love. The owners are fantastic people and really make you feel welcome. I wish you guys all the success in the biz. Some of the reviews mention slow service, but am alway in and out for lunch (including dessert) in less than an hour. I work in downtown Cheboygan and only get an hour for lunch and I've never been late getting back! Thank you for bringing this dining experience to Cheboygan! It is truly appreciated and needed!!
My family and I were camping in the Cheboygan area and we needed to eat at a place with outdoor seating (we had our dog with us.) We ordered the cranberry, chicken, and 5 blend cheese savory crepes. They were the best dinner crepes i've had in a LONG time. The service also exceeded our expectations. The staff was very friendly and the owner(?) brought my dog out a bowl of water and a plate of grilled chicken! He was in heaven! The man also killed some bees that were buzzing around us while we ate. Now that's service!

It's a DQ so there aren't any surprises here. However, they have the expanded menu that includes grill items. My wife came across some sweet coupons and our family of four ate a quick service meal for under $15 and included dessert.

Another great dinner at this restaurant--this time with friends. We all had different meals, with the same reactions, which is excellent food with great service! If you have not visited this gem in the middle of town, you are missing a great dining experience. Easily the best Asian fare in the area--I wish them continued success!
The place wasn't fantastic, but it wasn't horrible. No kids menus. Large portions. Sushi was ok. Staff was friendly. Place was small but clean and smokey from food being cooked.
