Four of us went for dinner on a Sunday. We got a table with a great view of the water. The staff are very friendly and fast. The drinks and food all tasted great and the prices were very reasonable. We'll go back for sure.

I have stayed at this resort and eaten at the restaurant a couple of years ago. At that time the food and service were very good. Since that time the business has been sold and the quality of the food and service has seriously gone down hill. Service was slow and unprofessional. Appears that they have not been given any...

We had cabin #37, no screen door on patio door, jacuzzi water didn't get hot, there were light bulbs missing in some of the lamps, while we were sitting out on the deck the chrismtas lights that were strung on the front of the cabin caught on fire. Don't get me wrong our stay was pleasant other than these issues,... More

I grew up spending summers on the river. This was a great way to spend some more time up north, now that our family no longer has a place here. The cabin was nice and clean, with great views of the river...especially in the morning with a cup of coffee, while the river is still like glass. The restaurant on... More

We realize that this is a restaurant that is surrounded by nature, but the flies were crazy. Not appetizing at all. Service was not up to its usual standards - maybe something was going on the night we visited, but we left after we finished our drinks. The flies were that gross!

We have been customers and fans of Lost Arrow for over 30 years. After four meals and one overnight stay this summer, it pains me to say that both service and food have slipped seriously in the past several years. Pains us for a couple reasons: we have enjoyed memorable meals and good times here and because it is one... More

At one time, this use to be a very good restaurant, no matter when you went, always had to wait. Many changes throughout the years, and not for the better.

We live nearby and have enjoyed going to Lost Arrow to eat a few times every summer. We have been twice this summer and have been disappointed though. We had dinner there the last weekend in May. The soup was only warm, not hot, and the walleye had way too much breading. We decided to give the place another chance... More

Lost Arrow resort is located on the banks of Secord Lake between Gladwin and West Branch. It is a wilderness themed atmosphere with lots of history and wildlife displays. The food is reasonable and usually well prepared with decent service rendered. It is a welcomed attempt at finer dining at affordable prices. Napoleon Salmon, Tenderloin Three Ways and great appetizers... More
