I visited The Lakes Bar & Grille with my dad and stepmom for dinner. We are frequent visitors of the Lakes Grille in Clarkston, and have been coming here since the fire in Clarkston. (Hope they rebuild soon!) The menu has a good variety of food. It was hard to make a choice. Service was excellent, as I am accustomed... More

We drove by this place before and kind of discounted it because it was in a strip mall. Then I remembered that our neighbors gave us a recommendation a year ago. We arrived about 3:30pm and were warmly greeted. We said we'd like a warm spot and asked for a booth near the front windows. The manager suggested a better... More

We , group of four, looked for a great steakhouse and found this treasure! The service was great that we felt like friends. We followed the steak recommendations and had a real great steak experience! No doubt, if I would live in this area, it would become my favorite restaurant!

We met friends here on their suggestion and we were very pleased with our service and food. It is in a strip mall so I was not sure what to expect, but the inside was a good atmosphere with a large bar. We had dinner and our salmon was very good. The homemade potato croquette was delicious and I'd go... More

We live about a mile from here, so stop in often. Sometimes we try other local restaurants, but always come back - their food is always delicious, the wait staff are excellent, and the restaurant is attractive and well run. I love the perch, but all of their fish dishes are great. The ribs are outstanding, and all the martinis... More

We have been here many times and it never disappoints! I love their fish dishes and my husband orders the ribs. They fall off the bone and wonderfully seasoned. Never had a bad meal here. Highly recommend for a nice night out. Not really a place for families at least not small children. Great bar, a bit small in the... More

We usually order the ribs as they are the best in the area. The Caesar salad is also good. They have a lot of fish specials that have been excellent to good. We enjoy going here!

The restaurant is fairly small and there is not much parking. The Grouper Oscar that I had was very good, but quite expensive. The place has a nice ambiance and a fireplace. They had a nice selection of wines (also expensive).

This is one of the best places for Filet Mignon around. It is always tender and their zip sauce is great. It is quiet so you can talk, especially in the booths, even when it is packed. Have only had one "bad" waitress in the years of going there.

Thank you, Karen, for your outstanding / five star review. Like you the Filet is my number one choice for a meal. We appreciate all of our customers, especially those who grace us with a great review. More

Went here with a group of friends. Waitress was overwhelmed by the size of our group (10). Food was just average and the atmosphere was not fun! Most of the time we felt as though we were in the way and they just wanted us gone!
