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

We have dined at Chief Lake Lodge many times over the past few years. We have never been disappointed with any meal. The Fish & Chicken Fry on Friday nights is one of the best in the Hayward area. The accompanying salad bar is fresh and includes the choice of two soups. The Clam Chowder is one of the best... More

This is one of our top favorites for breakfast & we live in the area so have been to a lot of them. The eggs actually have flavor, not the institutional type you get in most places & potatoes are really good (I'm not usually big on potatoes either). We go there often, especially in winter when we can take... More

Stopped in and happened to catch the Friday Fish Fry--usually the menu is closed but since it wasn't too busy when we got there, they said we could order whatever we wanted. We all went with the fish fry anyway and glad we did! Salad bar was good, as was the seafood soup. We all had a mix of chicken... More

We stumbled upon this place by accident, driving around looking for a place to eat with a lake view. Not much for parking, and it was a little odd to walk around the building and down steps to enter from the lake side. It was kind of small and rustic, and the view of the lake was very nice. It...

We ate at the Chief Lake Lodge twice this past week ... once for Friday night fish fry, and once for Thursday night pizza. Very convenient for those arriving by boat, jet ski or snowmobile ... but for those arriving on four wheels, there is a miniscule parking lot and a very daunting pair of concrete steps to get down...

Our first time here, and we ended up going twice in one week. Each time we had burgers. Amazing! With fries. The small salad (gotta have veggies!) is a great value. The service was good and the view beautiful. Reasonable prices. The only small drawback is that the tables and bar are in the same room. Families may want to... More
