We've gone to Lost Lake Lodge for dinner for years. They have served some amazing meals in the gourmet category. The restaurant itself is small, intimate, and overlooks the lake. You'll see a beautiful sunset at dinner. It is safe to order just about anything on the menu. BUT, even with the best meals in the business, service is important.... More

If you want to eat out go to Applebee’s or any other restaurant in the Brainerd lakes area. If you want a dining experience go to Lost Lake Lodge. Dinners are 3-6 course meals with optional wine pairings. Unique food choices, high quality and excellent plating combine to make this a must on your Brainerd dining bucket list. Nice view... More

Our food was very good, but the real reason to come here is the setting. Try to get a table overlooking the quiet little lake. The service was fine and friendly. A couple of the dishes were exceptional, a couple good, and nothing disappointed.

Upon arrival, the entire dining room was empty - and we were given lunch menus instead of the brunch offerings. Upon asking our waitress and hostess why we were informed 'lunch starts in half an hour, we... More

A good choice of 3, 4, 5 and 6 course meals with a sorbet in the middle. Each course had several selections to choose from. We did not see an ala carte menu, but you don't need it. You can order with or without the wine paring, which adds about $5 per course, but was definitely worth it. They had... More

We have been here several times for special occasions and it's always a delightful experience. It's a quaint spot on the lake with a fixed price, multi-course, limited menu, including wine pairings. The menu has been different every time we've been there. The menu typically has has some interesting and unique items. Excellent, friendly service.

We recently visited Lost Lake Lodge and enjoyed a marvelous four course dinner. The flavor of each item was excellent and the service was superb. I would highly recommend visiting this lovely little find... classy, peaceful, beautifully tucked away in the woods.

Limited menu with imaginative foods. I wish the menu items weren't paired in such an awkward way. Service is spotty but sometimes excellent
