Met friends there to plan a future cruise. Arrived early and left late. Never bothered about staying so long. Service was great and friendly. Meals were delicious. Very nice atmosphere. Can't wait to return when we go to spend time at our summer home. Very enjoyable experience!

In a steakhouse with seafood specialties I sure didn't expect the ribs to be this good. Fall off the bone melt in your mouth good.

My mom and I were in Harbor Springs and asked a local for a good place to eat. Had no idea they would send us so far away but it was worth it. It was a nice drive but be aware the our gps said we were there even though we had 2 miles to go. We were seated with... More

We went for just cocktails and appetizers to try the place the first time. Although a bit pricey we would go back again and again. Their seafood chowder is to die for as are crab cakes and shrimp appetizers. Great staff, beautiful views.

The choice of restaurants is very limited in this area. However, we are fortunate to live near the DLB. Friends are always willing to drive the extra distance to meet there for dinner. The food is consistently good, the service is excellent, the setting is perfect, whether you have indoor seating or on the porch. Even though it is a... More

I just love this restaurant, the food is so good. If you are from this area you will know that most restaurants nearby are a huge disappointment. Not at the DLB! Great food, beautiful lakefront property with amazing views, and excellent service. Prices are a bit higher here but the good food is worth it. It was surprisingly busy for... More

After getting off the ferry in Mackinaw City we were looking for a nice restaurant with the view of the water. Weren't finding anything in Mackinaw City that was jumping out at us, but saw this one with great reviews. Was worth the 30 minute drive. Beautiful view of the lake, awesome food! My husband is particular about his filet... More

If you want to have a wonderful experience then this is the place to visit. The customer service was very good,and so was our food. All four adults had something different and all admitted it was delicious. Having traveled from New England our exposure to seafood chowder is high, these guys know how to make it... Very good, try a... More

Went there with friends on a Tuesday night. Sat near window with great view of Douglas lake. Food was very tasty. We had Planked Whitefish, Lake Perch, Salmon, Ribeye steak and Lenny's Shrimp. All very well cooked and presented. Janet was our waitperson and was excellent. We will return.
