411 on the BLT: Divas dine at the Bear Lake Tavern

• Jul 18, 2017 at 5:00 PM

The Lakeshore Dining Divas gave the Bear Lake Tavern three “forks up” in their review of the North Muskegon landmark.

The divas’ report is broken down into three separate reviews. Each described her own experience.

Kelle: “The drive out to the BLT was really nice. For some reason, I felt like I was on a mini getaway adventure. But I knew we weren't far from home when half of the people walking in the door knew Bari and stopped by our table for a quick visit.”

Sharon noted that the BLT has been a landmark since 1929: "Located between Muskegon Lake and Bear Lake, it is a pretty drive accessible either by boat or car.”

Bari: "It's been years since I’ve eaten at the Bear Lake Tavern. It was time, particularly since the recommendation came from friend, Ken Lahey. I wasn't disappointed, but I'm getting ahead of myself.

“The energetic atmosphere of the BLT, even at 6 p.m., hasn’t changed from the past,” Bari continued. “Although we had a reservation, we had a choice of tables inside or out. The outside seating faces Ruddiman, not Bear Lake, so it didn't appeal to us.”

Kelle added: “Just a heads up — Sharon mentioned that a week or so later she drove to the BLT with a group of friends to have lunch and found out they are closed on Mondays.”
