Great food, especially pasta dishes. Seafood excellent but haven't tried steaks. Very popular pizza. Friendly, hard working staff. Can be crowded especially in summer, you'd better have reservations on weekends or be ready to wait. Small but well-stoked bar to help with that. Limited hours in winter - call. Exceptional lakeside dining and you can boat up if you're staying... More

We stopped in for supper on our way up to Ruttgers and were not impressed. I was dissapointed because I read all the great reviews, but the service took over 45 minutes and none of us were overly impressed with our meals. For the portion sizes and quality of food, the price was also a little high. Wouldn't recommend.

Who knew a really good restaurant could be found off the beaten path near a quiet small town? We rented a lake house nearby on Turtle Lake and decided to drive the few miles (really close by) to Lonesome Pine restaurant. It is lovely, has a playground for kids and yet the food is really good! LP has a full... More

Awesome place that is so relaxing and fun. The bar is great if you just want to watch a Twins game but make sure you eat. Pizza is the best!!

Keep alert so you do'nt miss the turn! You'll have a second chance a mile or two further on. There is plenty of parking space. This warm welcome place is unique not just in Deerwood as it's off the beaten track by miles, on the lake it is scenic even covered with snow and at -28C. We arrived after a... More

We've had dinner here many times and we always love the food and service. Drinks are good and the log,'north woodsy' decor is tasteful and cozy. Put this place on your bucket list!

I've been going to the Lonesome Pine for over 30 years, primarily due to the fact it is the the only restaurant on Bay Lake (besides Rutgers) and because they have good pizza. However, beware of the average dinner menu and the high prices. Stick with the basics...spaghetti, burgers, etc. The Walleye is good. The prime rib on special is... More

Nice place to eat and drinks. Can get very loud in the bar. Busy on the weekends in the summertime. You can boat to this place also on Bay Lake.
