We go here almost every time we come to Hayward. The fried fish is amazing but the steamed fish is just as good if you don't want the breeding and frying. They also have some of the best coleslaw! And if you're up for frog legs, they are good too!

It was my husband and I first time going out for dinner with a our new baby. The waitress was so nice. She got us a high chair and showed us how you can turn them upside down so they can hold the car seat. Not to mention that the prime rib was excellent. We've been back numerous and the... More

I have eaten at Lost Land Lodge a number of times on my annual fall vacation. They make a good burger, a terrible walleye and have an excellent Friday night fish fry. The traditional lake perch is not served but they do have a deep fried cod which isn't overly breaded and is very good. Their fish fry is served... More

We were vacationing in the Hayward area and went to the Lost Land Lake Lodge at the end of September. We had the Friday night fish fry. It was excellent. The fish was prepared perfectly - lightly battered and not greasy - and the fries were tasty, too. The only weak point was the coleslaw. I recommend making reservations like... More

I've eaten there some 100X or more and the food is the best in not only the whole North Woods, yet just about everywhere I've been and that's a few different continents. Service is great too.
