Owner description: The Dexter Lake Club first opened its doors in 1949. It established itself and as a popular cafe, bar and live music venue over the next decades. The large, bright neon sign that sits atop the high roof line is an iconic symbol along highway 58. In fact, the “roadhouse” persona of the Dexter Lake Club is so present, that it was used for filming in scenes of the popular movie Animal House in 1977. Weekly you'll find dedicated Animal House movie fans seeking out this famous landmark to take pictures and remember the movie.The atmosphere is warm and inviting throughout and the staff is friendly and attentive. The cooks prepare hearty meals made from scratch. We have excellent live music at least four nights a week. Visit our events page on our website for details.Come visit us, we'll be your new favorite place!

“Need improvement”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

Went with another couple on a Friday evening. The couple we were with got their food 10 minutes before ours. The food was cold when it arrived, it sits up on a counter with no heat lights waiting for the waitress to pick it up. I ordered Sweet potato fries and they arrived pencil thin and quite dark...

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011

My husband and I stopped here yesterday to have lunch. The portions were huge and really good. You can sit and look out at the lake while you eat. The staff was warm and helpful. I would recommend this place and we will go back when we head east again.
Enjoy!!

“Roadhouse from Animal House....OTIS MY MAN!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2008

Hey Animal House fans, the DLC is open again! New owners re-opened in September and I stopped by this week. Some movie items on the wall, pool table, jukebox, and nice clean atmosphere. A great bar if you're not into smoky and loud places, and it's right of Hwy 58. Let's help get this place back on the map!! Also check out Mack's, the cafe next door. Great prime rib dinner on fridays and a 1/2lb hamburger to die for!
