My wife and I enjoyed a very nice evening at The Beach Bar in Clarklake, Michigan. Our waitress, Ashlyn was friendly and prompt. We had a bowl of Beach Bar's world class clam chowder and split a thick Rubin sandwich. The atmosphere was romantic and cozy. We try to get out to the Beach Bar, whenev8er we can.

Soup, pizza, salads and sandwiches are all they serve. Soup is always hot and tasteie. Every thing is fresh and nothing is fried

Mid range dining options with GREAT service, setting and entertainment options. If you live (or are visiting) one of the numerous lakes in the region, this is THE PLACE to have a good time and grab some casual dining. Becomes even more popular in the summer during "lake season" with Wed & Sun entertainment on the patio.

Soup is a specialty here. Busy lakeside eatery known for a fun crowd. Seating is available both inside and outside.

Always great food and service. Sherry, is the bar servier and is fantastic and so are all the ladies. Pizza here is outstanding and you can't go wrong at the beach bar. The owner John is a jerk. Hung out there for 6 years and came back for a visit and sat at the bar as I always did and... More

We wanted some place to eat close to the Michigan International Speedway and this was suggested. It was a very fun and popular spot with the Nascar teams. The food was great. I highly recommend the soups.

This place keeps quality and hospitality at the forefront of its business. Brooke was an attentive waitress, the tomato soup was delicious as always, and we enjoyed the active, energetic ambiance. Keep up the great work!

Everyone loves the Beach Bar in summer! They have live bands that play outdoors on Wednesday and Sunday evenings and many locals attend. There is usually dancing. There is a grill outside to purchase hot dogs, brats or hamburgers. Or you may order a pizza from the take out window. They do not have food service outdoors. There is a... More

Over the years, this venue has grown organically from one room into a sprawling set of rooms and spaces that open into each other, and out onto the road which runs around the end of Clarklake. And it has grown because people keep coming back, bringng friends, children, grand-children ... If you want dining sophistication, you won't find it here.... More

I have family and friends who like this restaurant. It is not my favorite due to limited gluten free items. Pizza is popular, soup and sandwiches are also popular. When they have bands it is standing room only in the summer. Young adults like this bar/restaurant. Kids like the game and popcorn.
