Midwest Living Review
Step into the small dining room in Loon Lake Lodge and you'll think you've stepped back in time. The dark log walls, covered with needlepoint projects and mounted animals, slope in gently toward you, and diamond willow chairs are pulled up to oil-cloth draped tables. With a set nightly entree and serving time, it feels like what dinner in the North Woods used to be like when all lodge guests gathered for their evening meal in the lodge dining room after a day of fishing. You'll find gracious service and good food. Prices range from $13.95 to $21.95 and the price includes your relish tray, bread basket, salad (choice of tossed salad, cottage cheese or applesauce), juice, entree, vegetable, coffee and dessert. A selection of beer and wine is also available. Roasted duck with lignonberry sauce, lasagna, baby back ribs or chicken scaloppine are a few of the entrees offered. After dinner, you can kick back in the lodge's lounge or outside on a porch swing. Owners Tom and Terry Caldwell are happy to chat with lingering guests. Dinner is by reservation only, and this nostalgic dining experience is worth planning ahead for.
