Fine Dining:

For us, special occasions call for special meals, and what’s more special than being on vacation?  This area is limited in fine dining, or in dining with a view, so thus our opinions …


Churchill Pointe Inn                                         37 miles from condo

989-727-2020 or 800-727-2078                       Hubbard Lake

(If you are golfers, great day-trip following golf at White Pine National!)                                    


We’ve been going to Churchill Pointe for many years, and have never had a disappointing meal.  This is a B&B, but they are open to the public for dinner, and sometimes lunch in the summer.  They know how to mix a cocktail, the food has always been excellent, and the service good too.  And their view, sitting on the north end of Hubbard Lake, is just to die for!  Yes, it’s a drive, but worth it in our opinion.  Call ahead – hours vary.


Entrees $18-30; full bar; linen tablecloths inside; outdoor dining in season; small gift shop on premises.



Tait’s Bill of Fare                                              3.6 miles from condo

989-739-1518                                                    Oscoda


Tait’s is a lovely quaint restaurant, where the décor will make you feel kind of like you’re at grandma’s.  They also know how to mix a cocktail, and have an intimate little bar.  Local owners and staff are great to talk to!  We’ve had both great food and OK food here.


Casual Dining:

Wiltsie’s Brew Pub & Restaurant                  3.5 miles from condo

989-739-2231                                                    Oscoda


Wiltsie’s is a great breakfast place, and a lovely bar with good food … great for lunch or dinner.  Highly recommended!



AuSable Inn & Finish Line Sports Bar                  3.7 miles from condo

989-747-0350                                                    Oscoda


New owners & management May 2014.  Drinks are good, but unfortunately the food is pretty bad.  View of the AuSable River, depending on where you sit, is very nice.  Hoping for improvement soon!



Office Lounge & Grill                                                1.1 miles from condo

989-739-3287                                                    Oscoda


Nice downtown bar with OK bar-type food.  Nice people, pool table & dance floor.



Mama’s Country Kitchen                                4.1 miles from condo

989-739-4333                                                    Oscoda


Mama’s is a basic breakfast joint with good food!  Open for lunch & dinner too … no bar.



Desi’s Taco Lounge                                        6.2 miles from condo

989-739-7856                                                    Oscoda

Desi's is just a darling destination!  Cute decor, lots of local signs, etc. ... and a train running around the ceiling!  Lots of Christmas stuff during winter.  Food is OK ... mostly Mexican-style ... questionable on the authentic-ness of it.  Really too cute to miss ... but some like it & some don't.
