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

My husband is particular about his filet... 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.

Loved the Halibut but it has gotten very expensive $36.95! I've had surf and turf for $35 at fancier restaurants. I couldn't finish it, and wished that night I had brought the piece I didn't eat back to the hotel for a midnight snack. The salad was extra, I had one drink, split a piece of key lime pie with...
