Pizza with a View

Very good pizza, beer and the service was excellent! The dining room has big windows so you can view nature while you dine. A very relaxing pleasant place with good food.

Silver Rapids Lodge (est. 1919) is located on a private peninsula with water on three sides and access to four lakes (including the BWCA). It offers year round accommodations with lakeside cabins, motel suites and campgrounds. There is a restaurant on-site. Fantastic access to fishing, boating, hiking or snowmobiling.

You can go outside and enjoy many spectacular views, or sit inside and hoist a nice, cold beer to your lips and enjoy their great pizza! We liked the lodge a lot and would definitely go back again!

The restaurant just re-opened under new management. The new menu features homemade appetizers and comfort food as well as the traditional burgers and steaks. They also feature a homemade daily special. We tried all four homemade appetizers... WOW! Words can't describe how good they were. I say the cream cheese wontons were the best, my wife says the homemade onion... More

I was on a course. We sat in the restaurant. Lovely lakeside setting. Older property with personality. Food and service was good. Didn't stay overnight so cannot speak to the accomodation.

We have not stayed in any of the cabins, but have used the campground. We had our tent set up in one of their lakeshore lots. They have a beautiful resort on a lake that has great fishing. They have a swimming/ boat launch area, playground, and a wonderful bar/restaurant area.

Good food and friendly atmosphere. Lots of variety, bartender mixes up a "mean" drink.
