We stopped in for dinner late in the afternoon of a warm day. As a storm approached, the temperature dropped 20 degrees. We ate on the porch anyway because you can't beat the view of Torch lake. I got my usual pork burrito which is...More

Nothing like eating outside right on Torch Lake. Good burrito. You can put in your kayak right here.

Local bar right on Torch Lake. Park your boat or car and enjoy a pub lunch or dinner. Families welcome. Get there early to find a shady spot on the deck or play arcade games inside. Good burgers, sandwiches, and salads. My favorite is the...More

Always a great time here. Food service and the view are top notch. There is nothing like a great meal and drink as the boats go by.

This was a very busy and lively bar and restaurant. There is seating inside and also outside on the patio that overlooks the boat docks and Torch Lake. The prime attraction is really the water views. The menu is mostly bar food but better-than-average bar...More

We ate dinner on a beautiful, warm evening at Dockside. The food is casual but good, they serve ice tea by the pitcher and the tables near the water are a fun spot to sit and enjoy the boats coming in and out.

Stopped here after visiting the tiny torch lake beach at the park, and had a delicious but over filling lunch. I had the perch sandwich basket, it was pretty good, fries were crispy, my hubby had fish tacos that he enjoyed. My son wanted clams,...More
