I was looking forward to joining friends for dinner at DLB. The staff was attentive and helpful, but I was a bit disappointed in the food. I opted for the perch which was okay, but not great...in fact one of our party sent hers back. If I have an occasion to return I will stay with the steak option. Also,... More

Yep, rated it as one of the best meals I've ever had at a restaurant, and it's true. Tucked away in Northern Mi, and it is a delight. We've got a cabin nearby and for whatever reason never stopped in, BIG mistake. If you dine early you get half off one entree, note that they do not serve lunch, and... More

Cant wait to go back, It's that good. Near the Pellston airport, first or last place to go before you leave NOMI. OMG, I dream of the flavors of the place. Run, don't walk!

When I want of the perfect "UpNorth" restaurant experience, I turn to the DLB. It has a great relaxed, rustic, supper club vibe without even trying. The resturant is filled with locals so you feel as though you are "in on the secret" when you eat here-- not to mention it is in a remote location on a cute inland... More

I have been coming here for over 20 years, and I have never had a bad meal (even through the change in ownership in 2008). The Shrimp Lenny has always been a favorite app, and it is still awesome. Last night we tried the Smoked Gouda Quesadilla and I will definitely order that again too. I usually get one of... More

Usually order the steak but decided to try the Stuffed Chicken Marsala. Wow ! Excellent ! What more can I say. Very tasty and moist ! Chicken has a whole new meaning. Waiter was spot on. Person that assist's w/ water a little off which we think bothered the waiter. Don't think we have ever had a bad experience at... More

We have dined at the DLB many times over the years and our visit last week was as good as it always is! Beautiful setting, nice atmosphere and really yummy food. You can't go wrong.

My friend and I dined at the Douglas Lake Bar and Steak House on the eve of the Labor day Mackinac Bridge Walk, 2013. Our hotel recommended we try it out. We expected a typical rustic, up north kind of place. Well, we weren't wrong, but we were pleasantly surprised by the caliber of service and food at DLB. After... More

We stopped by here about 5:30 PM (they open at 5) and it was crazy busy. So, we returned late, about 9:15 (they stop serving at 10). On our prior visits, we have always been asked where we would like to be seated. This time, we were not. They sat us in the middle of the indoor dining room, and... More
