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

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.

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...

The place is charming but tight. The waitstaff are friendly and the food delicious. The pies and desserts are fantastic. Save room

Ever since we bought our cabin in northern Michigan we've been meaning to visit the DLB&SH. Finally, this summer the stars and guests aligned and we've been twice, so far. It has a great vibe, lots of folks, lots of conversation, lots of very busy staff (including the owner), and everyone appears to be having a great time. I feel... More

This place IS Northern Michigan. If you want to sit out overlooking Douglas Lake, in a wonderful summer setting on a lake with great food the Douglas Lake Bar and Steakhouse is built for you! Don’t let the outside or the location fool you – the food here is excellent as is the service. We ate here on a recent... More

Even if you are near Petoskey as I was this week, it's a hike to Pellston Airport and then due east off 31 to this steak house. But go! Do it! You feel like you are in a remote spot but then comes the lovely Douglas Lake and suddenly loads of cars. We had no reservation and had to wait... More
