I am guessing most of you are familiar with the concept. I know igloo dining has been available for a few years now at Fenton Firehall, and also in Clarkston at Honcho. If you are not, let me tell you it is super cool. The igloo is clear, so you can still see the outside, total bonus for claustrophobic people like me. You do not feel the cold temperature at all inside of heated igloos. Keep in mind, your server is running in and out of the cold, so be sure to remember that when you tip.

Igloo dining at The Lake Inn and Bullfrog's starts in December 1st, 2020 through February 28th, 2021. Reservations are required. Booking and reservation policies for both locations are as follow,

  • All reservations must be booked online on our website; no phone reservations will be taken.
  • There is a $200.00 minimum food and beverage purchase required (note: gratuity is not included toward minimum).
  • Up to 10 guests per igloo maximum, no exceptions.
  • Strict 2-hour time limit. We reserve 15 minutes of your 2-hour reservation to prepare the igloo.
