My husband and I had the luxury of having dinner at Lake Clear Lodge. We felt totally pampered in a nurturing environment. We were greeted by Ernest and given full access to choosing from a large selection of beer and wine. We enjoyed a delightful appetizer of salmon pancakes as we sat by the open fire sipping our drinks. We... More

Two couples went to the Lodge for dinner. We had all been there before and had a wide variety of entrees and the food was delicious. Our meal this time was far from delicious. Along with being the smallest portions I have ever gotten in a restaurant the food was nothing special. I had the pork loins which came out... More

OMG the dining experience is nothing short of AMAZING. Start with a choice of a 100+ beers or wines and fabulous appetizers in the Rathskeller then move upstairs for a 3 course dinner featuring innovative entrees based on local (100 Mile) products. Six of us each had a different entrée and we all loved them. The table is yours for... More

Very personal attention at this family-owned restaurant/cooking school/lakeside cottage emporium. If you like beer and wines you'll like this one, with the owner very happy to walk you through more than 200 brews from around the world. Food was good; service was excellent. Definitely a one-of-a-kind experience.

This is our 40th year dining at Hohmeyer's Lake Clear Lodge. And as usual it was a wonderful relaxing night - starting off in the Rathskeller relaxing and talking with Ernest, then a stroll down to the lake to see the sunset. Upstairs Cathy had once again outdone herself - the meals were not only attractive but tasty. It is... More

We were out in Lake Clear for their 3rd anual Lake Clear Day, and stopped at a booth for "The Lodge". We stopped by and while we did not eat there, that night, it is scheduled for when out special relatives from Louisiana come to visit in a few weeks. Our visit started upstairs, where we met Chef Cathy was... More

We spent a wonderful relaxing night at the Lodge tasting beers and wines, then a great meal upstairs. The food could not have been better. Highly recommended. Everything is homemade and very attractive. I have not been at the lodge for several years although I had been coming to the Lodge for over 40 years. The owner, Ernie, is constantly... More

My husband and I loved this place. Started in the Rathskeller with two of their 300 beers. Relaxed by the fire while our dinner was being prepared. Then upstairs to leisurely enjoy homemade soup, salad, nice selection of breads and the most wonderful schnitzel ever. Sides of purple cabbage and devinely light potato pancakes. All very fresh local ingredients. Family... More

My second visit to this charming restaurant. Having a drink downstairs in the cellar is relaxing and has the added value of personal attention from the owner, Ernie. The grounds outside are beautiful. Upstairs is the most ornate piano I have ever seen and the story that goes with it is amazing. The menu uses local ingredients as much as... More

Also: Bad hosts, poor cooks, tone deaf "conversationalists". I imagine the awkward, unpleasant owner is under pressure to continue a family tradition. He. Should. Stop. Now. It's patently clear he is struggling and it is painful to see. Just as painful as trying to eat just enough under-seasoned, cold, greasy, unimaginative, would-not-be-out-of-place-in-an-institution, overpriced slop to be polite and get the... More
