Stopped in on a note from TripAdvisor and was not disappointed.... All you could eat ribs, they let the 5 year old have the deal for half price... seeing as ribs are one of here favorite foods it was great.. well worth the cost and the night out.

Great time at LC. Sat in the bar area and had a great meal with good beer and excellent service. Can't wait until the outside is opened up for spring.

A relaxing, satisfying dining experience. What a great combination of great food and atmosphere. We ate here several times while we were in the area and once even stopped while traveling from Kalkaska to Six Lakes. Every item we tried was tastefully prepared and served. The wait staff was professional and helpful. I must add that, in my experience, the... More

Have been through Cadillac hundreds of times and never stopped here before. Nestled on the lake the decor reminds me of a hunting lodge with all the red and green plaid and great views of the lake. Clam chowder was good and the French dip ok but I really liked the chicken taco salad. Just the right number of ingredients... More

I would have given it five stars, have there been some music and if it were a bit warmer inside. That being said, thank you so very much to the chef for preparing the walleye for me for lunch as it is only on the dinner menu. It was fabulous ! Definitely a great place to have lunch on the... More

We ate lunch in the bar. Very Victorianish, dark oak, stained glass. Cool ambience. Great food (especially the cole slaw with my pulled pork sandwich.) The service was excellent. Hope we can return soon!

We chose this after driving back on 4th night to hotel. Previously we we had considered another restaurant and didn't like the menu, checked out on Google. Drove to Lakeside Charlies and remembered eating there 20 yrs ago. It was just as good and service/waitress were so friendly ..making our last evening in Cadillac memorable. Sitting by window looking out... More
