Let me first say that the wait to get into the restaurant was an hour and a half so we decided to go to the bar and wait - walking thru the dining room the reason became apparent, there wasn't enough staff to serve those who were wanting to eat. We got the last table on the patio bar where... More

We enjoyed drinks and appetizer at the bar one evening. You can do outside seating - where you sit depends on if you are ordering food. Hubbie tried their breakfast selection, but only scrambled eggs with cheese offered (he is a strict NO cheese guy) so he went elsewhere. Nice atmosphere and view if you are in the restaurant area....

This is the restaurant and bar in The Chase on the Lake Hotel. It offers a wonderful view of Walker Bay and city dock. The atmosphere is nice owing to the view and to the various artifacts relating to the long history of the resort. I have eaten lunch here before and on our most recent trip the breakfast buffet....

Our daughter-in-law and son when to the Chase for dinner and an overnight while staying at our cabin for the week. The view was spectacular and the ambience was great but the food not so good. They had prime rib and it was very fatty and the steak my son had was a new york strip and it was overdone... More

Try the walleye cakes! Also chicken pot pie and squash ravioli was best I ever had, (winter menu). Off season so service was a little slow but if you can see it as a time to relax you will be fine. Some of the best food I ever had

Buffet breakfast terrible!!! Cold dry greasy. Not sure if chef has changed since summer, or if he's lost his mojo, as summertime when we have... More

Great spot in the summer if you want perfect views and outdoor seating. But you will have to be patient. Food is super slow as is the service during the summer months and with only a few exceptions you can do better eating at home. I like it for cocktails and appetizers.

Great atmosphere in both the bar and the restaurant, the latter of which has a lake view during the more temperate months. The food is good and the prices reasonable.

I wish the menu had more to choose from. My filet was wonderful - althought I thought a tad bit on the high side. My husband had the ribs and they were great!

We have a cabin in the Walker area and are always looking for a great place to eat to have a night off from cooking (or a great place to grab an app and a drink while in Walker shopping). The Chase is a beautiful hotel/resort on Leech Lake and the 502 is their restaurant. It has a great view... More
