“Where the locals go for breakfast”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

The Lakes Cafe serves very good Classic American food. The breakfasts are especially good, and lunches are tasty too. They are not open for dinner.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

I'm really bummed I didn't have the same experience as everyone else...

We stopped in for lunch the day after The Lakes Cafe reopened after their recent remodel. The service was pretty brutal--it took 10 minutes for a server to greet us, my food came out after my friend was done eating his. Once I received my burger and fries, I was pretty disappointed. My burger was pretty bland with a cold piece of cheese slapped on top and my fries didn't seem to have any potato in them.

One positive if that the staff is really nice! I think the workflow is just a little rough.

“Hometown Restaurant”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

This is your basic home style restaurant with all the standard food items you would expect to see on the menu. My favorite is the Cheesy Hashbrowns with Bacon. Order anything on the menu early or late. Owners work the kitchen every day. Open at 4am during deer hunting so you can grab breakfast before you hit the stand.
