Lac La Belle


The Lac La Belle Lodge is




We have  a new food to go area in the store and are calling it

The Bear Belly Pit Stop. 

It is with great sadness we announced the permanent closure of The Bear Belly Bar and Grill's dining area and deck.  It has been a pleasure and an honor to serve the wonderful residents of the Keweenaw, as well as the visitors to our beautiful area for the past 20 years. Prior to the onset of COVID-19, restaurant business was booming and closing the Bear Belly for inside and deck dining was probably the furthest thing from our minds. However, sometimes things happen that are out of your control that changes the course of your business and industry. This is certainly one of those times. 

After weeks of analyzing and assessing the situation, we feel it is best to downsize our operation to running and focusing on the Lac La Belle Lodge and Store. We will still rent the cabins, docks, and boats, as well as have an upgraded convenience store with an emphasis on our new grab and go selection of food options.


David Menominee, our kitchen manager the past 19 years, will be staying on with us to ensure that we will continue some of the Bear Belly favorites, including Wednesday Wing day, Thursday sandwich day / now including Rubens - Phillys - French Dips. Friday Fish Fry, Saturday BBQ Rib basket and our Sunday Turkey Dinners. These classic Bear Belly staples, and more new items, are now available in the convenience store to go. We will also be offering our homemade pies and other assorted fresh baked goods. 

We want to sincerely thank all of our hardworking employees throughout the years. Without the wonderful service they provided, there would have not been the excellent food and great atmosphere that our customers had come to rely on.


Thank you to our vendors that worked with us and countless times delivered above and beyond to make sure we had the supplies we needed to serve our customers.


Most of all, thank you to all our great customers who visited us time and time again to make the Bear Belly truly what it was: a beautiful bar and grill that catered to all who wanted to come and have a great time and excellent food with family and friends. Thank you for your support and understanding during this difficult time. We look forward to continuing to serve you wonderful food to go in  our convenience store! 

Thank you for all your support, we hope to see you soon!
