Food was perfect as was the service. The restaurant had no background music or noise which is greatly appreciated. Conversation was easy and private as you didn’t have to talk over noise. Such a delightful jewel in our area. Highly recommend. Presentation and timing of the food delivery was perfect. Kim, our waitress, was a great ambassador for the restaurant. Perfect everything!!!

About the restaurant
Chandler’s opened it’s doors in December of 1999 behind the historical Symons General Store building. It’s a cozy place with only 50 seats in the main dining room & 10 seats at the bar. When real estate is too tough to find - it’s standing room only! For a change of scenery, guests can enjoy dining in the wine cellar where they are surrounded by the 4,000 bottle collection that serves both the restaurant and Symons General Store. In the warmer months, guests can choose to dine outside, on Chandler’s brick courtyard.

The Douglas Lake Bar & Steakhouse, known to locals as the “DLB”, has a rich history of providing great food and service in a rustic log building overlooking beautiful Douglas Lake. The two giant fieldstone fireplaces offer the perfect dining ambiance during the spring and fall seasons.

We celebrated an early Father’s Day, sat on the patio, beautiful view of magnificent Douglas Lake. Ordered a very attractive spring salad that we split, came out already split on two separate plates, lovely. For entrees I ordered the walleye, substituted the risotto for the rice. My wife ordered the pearch. Both over the top. We split an exceptional carrot cake for dessert, yummy. Our server, Tammy, was exceptional.
