Dining & Bar


The DLYC has many dining areas making it easy to enjoy a meal in the atmosphere of your choosing.  Nightly specials, fine dining selections, lunch and casual items and bar menus make it easy to get what you want, when you want it.

The DLYC also has an EXCEPTIONAL array of beer, wines, liquor and teas. Ask your server and chances are we have it.  The bartenders also develop unique concoctions and often feature specialty drinks.  We want to insure that your experience at the DLYC is the best possible one.

Our featured video showcases many of these areas.

Main Dining Room

The main dining room features a large dance floor and area for band and buffet-style setup. Seating capacity varies depending on table set up and the dining room can host large groups. The main dining room and porch are the most formal dining spaces at the DLYC.  Windows face west and north allowing for great views of the lake.


The porch is popular for those wishing beautiful views of the lake.  Windows facing north allow full sight of the waterfront, dock and lake.  Along with the main dining room, the porch is one of the more formal areas for dining at the club.

The Bar & Commodore’s Cove

High top tables and seating at the bar provide the diner with a more casual dining experience and a chance to catch up with friends as they pass by entering or exiting the club.  This area is the place to gather.  You’re never alone at the DLYC as table-stopping and quick visits are the norm for this area.  A large screen TV is usually carrying the current big game or golf match and the dance floor is busy on a Friday night and holiday weekends.

The Flag Room

The newest addition to our lineup is The Flag Room.  Located in the rear of the club, this casual flexible space is excellent for gathering family and friends, hosting meetings, sports enthusiasts watching the two large screen TVs and pool and Wii players.  The DLYC tradition is very much felt in this room.  On large party event evenings, this room is often transformed to hold the most important buffet of all, the dessert buffet.  Very popular indeed!

The Deck

Dining alfresco on one of the two decks to the east of the club is also a popular destination. A large canopy covers the upper deck meaning that weather doesn’t have to affect your ability to be outside. Almost anything goes here from having a casual meal or drink, catching up on your reading or working on your computer and phone surfing using the club’s complimentary WiFi service. The lower deck does not have a canopy so if getting a tan while you relax is your preference,  you’ll enjoy this option.

The Boat House

The Boat House is available to members free of charge based on availability.  Birthday parties, high tea parties, showers and corporate events are some of the most common occasions for requesting use of the Boat House. Dining buffets or plated meals are available.

The Boat house is also used for Sunday church service, book club meetings and Board of Governors meetings. To request use of the Boat House for your function, please call 517-547-7352 to reserve your date.

The DLYC Lawn

For larger, private DLYC member parties like weddings and company events, the DLYC side yard to the east of the club is an option. You’ll have the privacy you need for your important occasion.  The DLYC will assist you with menu selection and setup. Tent rental and setup and entertainment is at your expense but leave everything else to us.  We will give you and your guests a great experience. If you’re at loss for arrangements, it’s okay because we’ve done this before and we’re glad to provide you with suggestions or to help facilitate.

The Beach Deck

The DLYC has several patio and picnic tables on the lawn and waterfront areas.  Members are requested to place orders at the bar for carry-out service. The DLYC cannot guarantee wait staff to serve meals to these areas.


Sometimes the best way to eat out is to, well, eat out. It’s not uncommon for members to place an order at the bar and carry it out to their boat, car or even upstairs for our seasonal room holders.
