Perfect and cozy! This restaurant is amazing. You wouldn't think you'd find a place like this in a little town up north. You can tell she takes pride in it.

The night we were at The Frog Tiki Bar they had live trivia that most customers were playing and having a great time. We had stuffed mushrooms and steak tenderloin bites which were delicious. Food and drinks were reasonably priced. I would highly recommend.

We've had a place on the lake for 13 years and never knew about this place. We had dinner here last night and it was just wonderful. So nice to have a classy place to go while at our lake house on Houghton Lake. The food was great, the service was great and the atomosphere was great. We are eating... More

We live in Key West but when in Ht Lake the only place to go is The East Bay Grille for dinner. Great menu great food. After dinner we always finish up at The Frog Tiki Bar Tropical Paradise in Northern Michigan.

Open year round (on a limited schedule in the winter), it's a fun outdoor bar to visit. You can set in a protected tiki-roof covered area our outdoors around their small pond and enjoy the food and drinks.

The rooms at the Springbrook Inn are beautiful and clean. The more formal dining in the East Bay Grille is excellent. For a more relaxed atmosphere and entertainment, we went outside to the fully enclosed Frog Tike Bar.
