On the strength of a recent recommendation on this board, my wife and I tried the Bearded Dogg in Gaylord last night. This place rocks! Easily the best meal I've ever had in Gaylord and up there with the whole of Northern Michigan. Neat interior, interesting menu, good service. We will be adding this to our list of "up north" favorites along with Cafe Sante, Pearls, Phil's on Front, Lulu's, Siren Hall, Esperance, and the dining room at Gates Au Sable Lodge.
