Beautiful dining room. Great and friendly waitress. The Friday AUCE fish fry for $13.00 is a great deal with good food.

The Gateway lodge restaurant was very nice and food was decent. Service was good as well. The whole place is really a throwback to another time. Very cool to visit, just remember this is basically the wilderness or cottage country up here so the rooms at the lodge will not be high end. This is a nice place for families... More

I love this place. I get the impression that they've had some management changes, but are definitely improving. I can't wait to go back next June for a vacation vs. business trip. I highly recommend the Duck and the Shrimp Boil. I do wish we could have eaten in the bar, and I wish they were open for breakfast and... More

It's great the the Gateway Lodge has been able to keep their impressive northwoods dining room open for dinner after numerous management changes. The food is good, the atmosphere is special, But nothing is memorable. Give it a try for yourself.

We eat here often since it's such a grand old place. The dinning room is really a neat Northwoods treasure. The food is always good. Even great if you get the beef or fish choices. We've never been disappointed here.

We went to the Gateway Lodge Friday night and was sadly disappointed. We had a reservation and arrived 30 minutes early to enjoy a cocktail at the bar. We checked in with the hostess, then made our way to the bar. All bar seats were taken, but there were open tables available. Unfortunately, all these tables were dirty. The bartender... More

First, the service was top notch. We went there twice this summer (June and July) and enjoyed the experience. The Friday fish fry is pretty standard stuff. Otherwise, the menu is varied, most of it fried. Our large family had children's hamburgers, fried fish, grilled cheese sandwich, mac and cheese. Also on the menu was steak, roast chicken, roast duck,... More

Boneless pork chop in perfectly spiced apple-cran sauce with wild rice & veggie excellent. Ample servings size. Slaw plus soup or salad with quality bread buns round out this meal. Atmosphere unique and interesting with historic vibes, filtered lighting via large windows. Good location for large groups or parties. Tables well spaced so families shouldn't shy away. Service attentive. Prices... More

We have been vacationing up in the northwoods for over 30 years. We have been in and out of this restaurant (as it has changed many hands). However, we decided to give it a try again this year. We went late on a Thursday (8:30pm) they close at 9:00pm and we had a party of 8. They seated us and... More
