A beautiful spot to have a birthday dinner!

We ate here on a rainy evening in August. The view from our window table looking over the lake was absolutely beautiful. The many course dinner with wine pairings was delicious, and the service was very fine.

I've had much better pheasant and my husband has had much better walleye. Especially for the price and we r used to spending what it takes for gourmet dining. Go to Bar harbor which is near by. Better food and better selection. Limited wine list however there.

Fantastic wine list, locally-inspired menu, and innovative cocktails make this dining room at the Lost Lake Resort a destination dining spot. Waitstaff is incredibly friendly, making service equal to the excellent menu offerings.

I have not a clue what I just paid for. It certainly wasn't for the food. I think what I just paid for was the landscaping out front. After spending $150.00 on a fine dinning experience, we drove to town and bought fast food burgers...

What an absolutely fabulous dinner beginning with the option to engage in a four course dinner with wine pairing or just order from the fabulous menu. Not a lot of deep fired here at Lost Lake Lodge. Rather, fresh and exciting offerings running the gamut from steak tartare to fresh fish selections. Outstanding restaurant tucked in the forest next to... More

Lost Lake Lodge is hidden away in the woods near Nisswa. The restaurant caters to resort visitors but is open to the public. We had a nice dinner with excellent service despite the fact that a wedding party was being catered in the adjoining room. Food is upscale for the area but reasonably priced. I had perfectly prepared walleye with... More

It's a whole new game for dinner at LLL's cute (relaxed but elegantly designed pine wood, with nice view) dining room. Previously dinner was good-to-very-good, but markedly uneven. But the place has apparently made a real commitment with a new chef who has a truly deft touch with his new menu! It is trendy, as in tweeked flavors and very... More

Memorable meal. This was the best walleye I've ever had. And in this part of the country that counts for something. Very interesting menu with multi-course dinner options. Lots of variety with local food. Chicken, steak, fish as well as vegan choices. This restaurant deserves to be better known. We also had breakfast here and were impressed with the creative... More

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
