The Crazy 8 brought us in

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... read 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

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

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
