I've been going up to Interlochen for years and only recently discovered this place. Its definitely a locals place, but the food and service are excellent.

We were headed to Traverse City when my brother suggested a new place ( to us ) to eat. He mentioned Dilbert's . We stopped in. Small, but very clean and seemed to do a steady business . We love small family owned restaurants. My brother ordered a skillet breakfast and was impressed how filling it was. I ordered their... More

My husband & I ate there on rib night and they were delicious and very reasonably priced. If you're looking for ambiance, you're in the wrong place, but if you want a good meal, you hit the jackpot.

The breakfasts are great here and the crowd to get in shows. The dinners are good as well with a special every night. Good diner type food and a friendly staff.

Stopped in for a quick bite on a rainy day. Both my wife and I tried the steak and mushroom soup. You could tell it was home made. It was very tasty and almost had the consistency of a stew. My daughter had the cheese curds, which she said were better than any she'd had before. If the other menu... More

Had a first stop at Dilbert's this past Friday. It was recommended by a friend who lives in the area. Even though the place was crowded, the service was good. Prices reasonable. While the food was not fancy it was excellently prepared and presented. Was it worth the nearly 200 mile round trip for breakfast? Pretty darned close. You can... More

Fantastic portions, great price... Had the Philly omelette and it was jam packed with Steak and veggies. The home fries were delicious and instead of toast they give you option of a pancake. The pancake was also fantastic. The whole family loved their food. Will be going there for the rest of our stay.

Found this place through Apple Maps search for breakfast places. We are up from Florida and we have had 7 breakfast stops so far while traveling. Dilbert's is by far the best food we have had out of all our stops. 4 of us ate and each ordered something different. All our orders were great tasting and generous portions at... More
