Very good place in Gaylord

Ok, let's be honest, Gaylord and most of Northern Michigan isn't know for their restaurants, no offense meant, plenty of local delights, but it's very rural and seasonal. This place however is a little bit big city, but still with a small town local flare. You can dine there as we have many times... read more

The Bearded Dogg has incredible atmosphere. They've acquired furniture, windows, doors and other elements and have incorporated them throughout the restaurant. Very unique. But the best part is the food and service. Creative menu options like Ravioli filled with Sirloin and Prime Rib, Pan Seared Chicken Breasts with Roasted Grapes and the best Tomato Bisque Soup I've ever had. Our... More

Thu Dogg, as we now call it is a fun place to go to get a quick bite to eat or sit down and have a really good meal. It is close to I-75 or M-32. Seating is sort of limited so don't plan on taking 20-30 people with you, just the ones you really want to spend a good... More

You need to try this spot while you are in Gaylord or even take one of the exits to get to The Bearded Dogg as the 'locals' call it. It has some unique opportunities on the menu like the stuffed burger (not too sure the real name) with jalapenos and cream cheese between two patties. There are several other very... More

This restaurant will appeal to those who like the "trendy" atmosphere. I'd expect this restaurant in a college town or Royal Oak -- quite urbanesque. If you're looking for a "Northern Michigan" atmosphere, this is not the place to go. The food is good, a little on the high priced side.

We lunched there on New Years Eve day, and the place was packed. First of all...they had THE most comfortable chairs I've ever sat in in a restaurant! It was a very cold day and our first table was located near the entryway in a drafty spot. I asked if we could move when another table opened up and our... More

Went for lunch and couldn't believe the prices. I can't say that I was dazzled by their food. They do have a nice atmosphere, service is good. Not sure if I'll return or not...

We loved this place!!! Very cute inside. The food is more creative than usual places in northern Michigan. Prices maybe but on higher side but overall worth it. Very clean and well kept and busy. We enjoyed ourselves and will return. Only sad closed on Mondays or we would've eaten there last time we were in town.

A little bit of Bohemia in Gaylord. Menu choices unique with a cozy atmosphere. Great drinks and food.
