My wife and I are blessed to have a lakeside home in Deep Creek Lake, Md., although our permanent residence is in the Pittsburgh, Pa. area. When we are at DCL, which is often, we head to Englanders and Dottie's Fountain & Grill in Englanders Antique Mall.
Dottie's is an old time fountain and grill with counter stools and small booths. The menu fare is typical breakfast and lunch items....eggs, pancakes, burgers, sandwiches, etc.
However, the atmosphere is great, the service prompt, the prices very reasonable, and the food good. In other words, what else could you possibly want? It's by far my favorite lunch/breakfast place in the DCL area! Sit at the counter & watch the grill chefs....they're phenominal!! And I should know, as in my early years I was a short order cook. After breakfast, stroll around Englanders Antique Mall. Lots of cool stuff from furniture to china to fishing lures to old political buttons! Great sauff! Nice restaurant in a nice store in a very nice town (Oakland, Md.). In the Summer on Saturday, check out the Farmer's Market across the tracks from the restaurant. Great homemade breads, pies, and fresh grown produce. Very cool!
