Audie’s Restaurant

Audie’s Restaurant has been owned and operated by the Jaggi Family since 1974 and a local favorite since the Bridge was built. Edgar was working as a Chef at Boyne Highlands when his good friend Bill Shepler dropped in, excited to take him for a drive to see the perfect place for the Jaggi’s to turn their dream of owning their own restaurant into reality. It didn’t take long for them to decide that they wanted to purchase “Downing’s” and make it their own.

The Jaggi Family moved in (literally, with 5 kids living in the back of the restaurant) and the rest is history! Edgar and Audrey have since retired, and with son Nick at the helm we do things pretty much the same way we did back then. Our baker, Cheryl, bakes the breads, dinner rolls, desserts and pies. Chef Nick oversees the kitchen where Dwayne makes our homemade soups and sauces, we grind our own beef for burgers, slow roast the Prime Rib and create the daily specials.

Today, you might find the third generation of the Jaggi family at the front door, welcoming you in or perhaps in the kitchen, following in the footsteps of their father and grandfather.

Here at Audie’s, hospitality is a family tradition.

Biere de Mac Brew Works

OUR HISTORY

But behind every awesome group of people (which we are) and behind every stellar pint of beer (which we have) is a good story (3 for3!) The Ranville family initially settled on Mackinac Island several hundred years ago, along with French explorers, traders, voyagers, and a bunch of other cool, adventuresome lads and ladies.

We then moved to the mainland, and operated a fishing business in the area where the state docks are now located along the Mackinaw City waterfront. Good times were had, outlandish shenanigans took place, and our happy family grew happier. There’s a lot more to tell, but they are stories better shared over a pint of good brew. We choose to spell Biere the French way as a nod to our ancestors, who settled in the most beautiful place on the planet, and facilitated the opportunities that got us to where we are, which is a pretty amazing place to be!

Don’t be fooled by that fancy spelling, though; we won’t correct you on the pronunciation because we aren’t even sure if we say it right. Good beer and good food. That’s all we care about. Stop in some time, grab a pint (or, you know, realistically more than one) and enjoy! Cheers!

Colonial Michilimackinac (Mackinaw City)

 

Treasures from the past come to life at this 18th-century fort and fur trading village. As you walk through the site, you are stepping back in time to 1775, when the American Revolution began. Reconstructed based on historic maps and more than 50 years of archaeological excavations that continue today, Colonial Michilimackinac offers a one-of-a-kind experience from cannon and musket firings to hearth cooking and crafts. Located on the shore of the Straits of Mackinac, visitors can enjoy stunning views of the Mackinac Bridge, the straits, and the Upper Peninsula.
