Halibut entree and shrimp and tomato salad was one the best meals I have ever had. This restaurant was truly a gem.

Had a lovely romantic dinner over looking the lake. Food choices were superb, and a fully stocked bar.

Not having been to Lost Lake Lodge in a few years, we went there last night with another couple. Had wine while enjoying the sunset. I ordered the Lamb Manicotti. It was delicious. Since the restaurant was recently reopened, they are working through initial operational kinks, but it is apparent that they are taking the right steps to make this... More

My family & I stayed there last Summer. The restaurant had just brought in new chefs. Their breakfasts were very good but the dinner was great - once. The menu was great, but kept repeating each night of our stay. Overall, this place is very different - like a page out of 1960, but with color TV's and internet access... More

The restaurant is expensive. It is based on the 4, 5 o 6 course pricing strategy. You may choose to do with or without wine pairing. My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here and had meals with the wine. The food was unbelievable! So good and very original. I would not do wine pairings with my meal in the... More

It was fine, but it has a higher end attached to it. Not sure that we loved all of the food, but it has a lovely ambience to it.

I have been coming here since the place first opened up and they were cooking off residential ranges. Still a first class establishment. Reservations are recommended.

Our goup of vintage boaters reserved the dining room for one of the weeks several dinners. Prairie Bay outdid itself with a large crowd; no confusion with orders; timely arrival of salads, entrees and deserts.. Of course the highlight was the walleye on a bed of uniquely prepared and seasoned wild rice. Best meal of many that week. Only problem... More

My family has been coming to the Nisswa area for decades, and we always dined-out at the other, more familiar establishments. When we couldn't get in to some of our regular spots due to convention traffic in the area, we inquired with our resort owner who recommended we try Lost Lake Lodge. What an eclectic, chef-driven menu -- such a... More

I "Returned Home"!!! I worked at the lodge two years in the summer while attending college. My Brainerd friends took me there while visiting them. The food was incredible but much of the place had changed. I hadn't been there in over 30 years!!
