Seeking mid-Michigan, post-funeral chow

My first post! The family is gathering in Houghton Lake/Prudenville for a dear uncle's funeral tomorrow and Friday. We'd love a Thursday dinner (that's tomorrow!) that's local and tasty. Anyone?

  1. G's pizza, in both Houghton Lake and West Branch. Also the Willow Tree (on the pricey side), between Houghton Lake and West Branch.

    ...I've never thought of HL as mid-Michigan. I consider that to be the Saginaw area, which I why I didn't respond to this earlier.

      Thanks, rweater. We ended up at Limberlost, a vast warehouse of a place with cook-your-own steaks (I opted to let the staff do it). So-so at best. G's would have been better. We like their flagship in West Branch.

        I didn't know the Limberlost did the cook-your-own steak thing. I agree, the food there is so-so at best (or at least it was the last time I ate there). Unfortunately, it's one of the few places where you can sit and eat overlooking the lake.
