My wife and I recently visited the Stirling Lodge for dinner with three couples visiting us at our cottage. We had originally planned to take them to the Opinicon, however they are still undergoing renovations and could not accommodate us😢. We also tried for reservations at the Stagecoach in Newboro, but they aren't open on Tuesday nights. So the Sterling... More

The restaurant at this fishing lodge was an echo of a bygone era. The menu was small and the food very traditional. That being said we both had walleye which was very good and we finished off our meal with a slice of moist chocolate cake which was excellent. The wait staff were very pleasant.

This casual pub has tons of atmosphere, great food, cold beer. Family business and the pride they have in the business shows.

Visited with a group for an anniversary dinner and was disappointed by the food. Several people had the table d'hote ($27.00)which included turkey, catfish or "mediterranean"stir fry as the entree. The med stir fry was not available and instead they had a "sweet and sour" stir fry with shrimps. The beef and potato soup was good, as was the caesar... More

We heard about the Stirling Lodge from someone in Westport. We do not regret taking their advice. The food was amazing in presentation and taste. It's a quaint place that I would like to go back to in the summer and possibly stay for a weekend. It's old and they owners have kept the old flair...lots of atmosphere. If you... More
