Pink Pony Bar & Grill Review

This is the second in a series of posts for Michigan 2013.
Other posts in this series include: Lumber Jack

Located within the Chippewa Hotel at the far end of Main Street, 
the Pink Pony Bar offers indoor seating and a bar. 

But the star of the show? Their outside patio seating, which offers great views of Lake Huron.

They've got an outdoor bar as well so feel free to grab a cocktail!

And in the afternoon, you'll often find someone singing coffee shop tunes. But beware, I realized that the GF was staring daggers at me for being so entranced!

But let's get back to the food!

Smoked Whitefish Dip ($12.95)
Smoked Mackinac Island whitefish, cream cheese, garlic, seasoned pita chips

Whitefish is definitely one of the more highlighted ingredients on Mackinac Island so we had to start off with some smoked whitefish dip. The tortilla chips were freshly fried and were the perfect vessel for the smoky, creamy dip. The horseradish provided a nice kick to balance the smokiness.

White Fish Tacos ($12.95)
Pan-seared whitefish, cilantro cabbage, lime chipotle vinaigrette, avocado aioli, tortilla chips, fresh salsa

Going along with the whitefish theme, I had to get the whitefish tacos. The fish was meaty, yet flaky. The lime-chipotle was more of an aioli and provided some brightness along with the spicy salsa. I was expecting tortilla chips, but actually got freshly fried potato chips, 
which I appreciated more!

Sante Fe Wrap ($11.95)
Grilled chicken, fire roasted corn and black beans, tomatoes, lettuce, tortilla strips, pepper jack cheese, chipotle mayo, sun-dried tomato tortilla

The GF went with the Santa Fe wrap which was hearty and filled with roasted corn, black beans, and juicy grilled chicken. The chipotle mayo and the pepper jack added a nice piquancy to the dish.The crispy tortilla chips helped to heighten the textures as well.

Overall, if you're looking for a quick bite and someone dishes that highlight whitefish, look no further than Pink Pony Bar & Grill. And be sure to get a seat on the patio to enjoy 
the nice breeze and some tunes.
