Out of the way on the small lake. Quaint building inside and out. Would not know it exists except for our hotel staff. Great food including apps. Excellent service from everyone. Staff very pleasant. A bit pricey although worth the cost.

This place is one of the nicest dinning places to visit. I is right on the water, people come to eat in their boats, they dock the right along the dock at the restaurant. It is a bit pricey but a fair shake, food is excellent, if you don't mind the price you won't be sorry.

This place is always busy. Staff is great. The view is good if you are on the porch. The prices, however, do not reflect the quality. I mean the food is good. But not exemplary. We have friends that love it so that's the only time when we go.

We have lived in northern Michigan nearly 10 years, and we think the DLB has the best food in the area. The beef is better than any we have found at other restaurants. The staff is friendly and efficient. They have a full bar, and a good variety of beers. The early bird special is great--- you get half off... More

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
