This is a local spot that gets packed in season. Good food, friendly service & great specials. Sign up for Bass fishing contests here too. Full Bar, lunch & dinner.

“Great Lunch Spot while traveling in your boat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We love taking our boat on Lake Leelanau and stopping at places to eat. Dick's has a docking area and then we walked up to the restaurant to have lunch. We had friends visiting with us for the weekend and we thought it would be a great place to show them the area and the laid back atmosphere of Lake Leelanau. There was some senior singers with their instruments providing live entertainment with folk songs for us which was a lot of fun. We sang along a couple of times and enjoyed the lunch very much. They are a large menu to choose from and a great kids menu too. I think all 7 of us tried something different. I usually stop here at least once every summer during our family vacation.

“Consistent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Not pretentious, just good food and a happy atmosphere. I love the perch, but a great place when you're just in the mood for a burger or pizza.

“Good pizza”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

We like the pizza at Dick's and it's fun to stop at their dock to pick it up while boating.

I like the room for large groups too.

“A bar that is ok for families”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

Glad we heard about this place. The meal we had here was one of the best we had in the area and had pretty good value for the price.

The atmosphere is definitely a bar, but there is a room off to the side that is a little quieter. They do have high chairs and a kids menu, so feel free to bring the kids. The atmosphere is appropriate at meal times. This place is open late and probably changes as the night progresses. Nice variety on the menu of big meals and lighter options. Specials every night add to the variety. Wish I had tried the burrito.

My husband and son loved the fried perch - a huge amount that was filling for them. The fries were great. My toddler ate off the kids menu - typical Kraft macaroni and cheese. I had a great burger. The glasses they served the kids drinks in were a big help.

We had to wait a while to get in on a Friday night, but it was worth it. Saw many people ordering pizza and it looked very good. We also had to wait a while for our food, but the place was hopping and very busy.

Definitely recommend and we would definitely go back.
