Fish Fry Special

This is a good place for lunch and dinner. the Friday fish fry is on par with any in the area. The amenities are clean, simple, and good for families and groups. Adequate bar selection. service is good.

I have had their pizza in the past and during a recent visit had a craving... so our group ordered 3 pizzas - one veggie, one pepperoni and sausage and one supreme. I'm not sure what all makes a really good pizza (after all... it is crust, sauce and toppings), other than it is so right when everything comes together.... More

I've been to Chief Lake Lodge many times for their fish fry. Last year, we went 3 times because it was so delicious. This time around, it left me wondering when I had entered the twilight zone. First of all, the restaurant was not very clean, there were many (~250) gnats hanging out in the window next to our table.... More

The good: Salad bar was very good, and a nice change from the traditional cole slaw. The view of the lake is beautiful. Portions are VERY large..I received a 1/2 chicken when the first plate was brought out. The bad: The chicken was very greasy, as was the fish. I like some garlic, but the baby red potatoes were way... More

Stopped in to Chief Lake Lodge when we were collecting our "stamps" for the Crazy 8 tour. My kids loved the resident "Chief," a friendly Black Lab, who entertained them during our visit. My oldest daughter is a connoisseur of buffalo wings and rated these at the top of the list. The entire staff was extremely friendly and made us... More

I went with a few people who have been here before. They suggested the pizza. I tend to not order pizza outside of the Chicago area, but this was really good. The Thursday pizza special is really a good value. You get a free pitcher with the purchase of a large pizza. Also, the frie basket is delicious. I would... More

From the nasty dirty kitchen, to the mushrooms growing on the walls of the walk in cooler - Chief Lake Lodge has to be one of the worst places I have ever had the pleasure to cook for. From watching the septic getting pumped into the Chippewa Flowage a few months out of the year to finding cocaine above the... More

On a whim stopped here to have dinner. There were 10 of us and all of our orders were hot and fantastic. Pizzas are yummy. Salads fresh! Beef roll was to die for. We made a second trip for fish fry Friday, although menu is limited that night, awesome fish. We'll be back!!!

My husband and I long with another couple had a Friday fish fry and fried chicken dinner here last Friday. We all loved it. It is all you can eat fish or chicken plus a great salad bar with soup. We were served promptly. The salad bar has a large selection of salad plus soup. There is also cheese that... More
