“Your in the remote regions of Lake Nippissing”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

Lu Lu's has been in Calendar Bay for eon's. There are not a ton of sit down places here to eat, so don't expect more than a local establishment. I would consider this place average in a larger city setting, but you are not in a metropolis here. Lake Nippissing caters to those who want to get away and relax, and chase those walleye's!!!!!

The Restaurant is located on the main road through Callander, on the corner that leads to the public boat launch. Entrance through the side street. When you walk in the bar area is right in front of you, and there is seating located to the left and right. Outdoor seating is available, that provides you a glimpse of the public launch area.

Lu Lu's is more of a local bar that has a restaurant also. Keep this in mind when ordering food. The service is friendly, and the food is decent. They offer the typical American fare, along with the ability to have sparkling beverages. The food is average, not horrible, not great, but fits right in the middle.

The wings are good, and so is the pizza. We usually hit here one night during the 10 day stay that we make up to the lake on a yearly basis.

“Good quality food, but pales in comparison to rivals”
Reviewed October 30, 2011

I had chips at the stand just back in july, it was really good, and like most northern chip stands, you have to pour your own salt and ketchup. Even adding that pureed tomato is an abomination to many, so I had it plain. But I think I over did it on the salt.

The fries were what you expect for it being up north, which means that it was fresh and top quality.

However, if you want the best fries in the area, consider driving the extra half an hour into sturgeon falls and pick up rivs (or larry's)

“Best Brunch Around!”
Reviewed March 13, 2011

Brunch served from 10-2 p.m. is new at the "old" Callendar Tavern. The poster in the window says it's the town's "best kept . Judging from the packed, full house, I'd see the secret is out! Great service, great food!
Can't wait to try the new full menu!!
