Dinghy’s Restaurant and Bar

Dinghy's RestaurantAfter 19 years Dinghy’s has established itself as one of the best local eateries Up North. Steve Christian has been owner of Dinghy’s for the past 14 years. Customers come from far and wide to enjoy the experience at Dinghy’s. Formerly Baker’s Bar – for 40 years – Dinghy’s is a landmark in Downtown Frankfort, in beautiful Benzie County , Michigan.

We pride ourselves on serving high quality and great tasting menu items made from the freshest ingredients, obtained from local sources when available. Dinghy’s has become famous for the meats that we cook in our own smoker using local hardwoods. In the early years we began serving only ribs and pulled pork bar-b-que sandwiches from our smoker. Over the last few years we have added bar-b-que chicken, huge turkey legs, and brisket served as an entree or as a French dip sandwich. This year, we introduced our newest menu item from our in-house smoker: chicken wings.

Meal after meal, we can promise you consistently great food at a reasonable price. We are also confident that we have the best staff in the area. All of our servers are well experienced and possess the knack for making everyone feel like members of the Dinghy’s extended family. They love what they do, and it shows.

The nautical theme of the restaurant highlights the history of the ferry boat fleet that steamed out of Frankfort harbor. The old car ferry signs that hang from the ceiling mark the days when those great ships sailed between the harbors of Michigan , Illinois and Wisconsin . Stained glass over the entry windows add to the nautical theme.

Several old maritime maps and photos adorn the walls, along with fish mounts that call attention to Frankfort ‘s Charter fishing fleet and the quality outdoor experience that abounds in Benzie County . Behind the bar hangs the World Record Brown Trout caught on a 10 lb. line right across the street in Betsie Lake .

With great regret, we have made the very tough decision to close operations until we navigate through this crisis. As the pandemic reaches closer to our community, we need to take all necessary measures to ensure the safety of our Dinghy’s family, including our hard working staff, their families, vendors and extraordinary customers.

We thank you for your understanding of this difficult decision and your incredible generosity toward our staff over the last couple weeks, not to mention the last 25 years! The hardest part of all of this is not being able to see the people that we care about so much. Our relationships with our customers is the bedrock of our business.

We will be open for carry-out today until 8pm and will keep you abreast of any changes to our operating schedule. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you in the very near future. Thank you for your continued patience while we maneuver through these trying times. Stay well.

With Love,

Your Dinghy’s Family
