“Prefix on steroids--but very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

A good choice of 3, 4, 5 and 6 course meals with a sorbet in the middle. Each course had several selections to choose from. We did not see an ala carte menu, but you don't need it. You can order with or without the wine paring, which adds about $5 per course, but was definitely worth it. They had steak and chicken, but also walleye, lamb chops, king salmon, pork, seafood, and tofu vegetarian meals. Normally when there are so many choices the quality suffers, but so far we have not experienced that over the 3 years we have been there. The menu changes from time to time, but we only go once a year while on vacation, so we don't know how often. The courses are definitely foodie quality, with flavorful and artistic presentations. There is quite a bit of innovation and use of local ingredients. This time there was a Minnesota duck prosciutto with local cheeses, deep fried olives and lavosh in one of the cold starters. It is a lodge on a small lake with views everywhere. It is a little pricey. We had the 3 and 5 course meals and, without tip, it was $151, but we feel it is worth it for something that is quite unique to the MN lake country area. It is definitely #1 for sit-down, quality dining in the area.

“Charming location for a nicer, more expensive dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012 via mobile

We have been here several times for special occasions and it's always a delightful experience. It's a quaint spot on the lake with a fixed price, multi-course, limited menu, including wine pairings. The menu has been different every time we've been there. The menu typically has has some interesting and unique items. Excellent, friendly service.

“Possibly the best dinner we have ever had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

We recently visited Lost Lake Lodge and enjoyed a marvelous four course dinner. The flavor of each item was excellent and the service was superb. I would highly recommend visiting this lovely little find... classy, peaceful, beautifully tucked away in the woods.
