As expected in a lodge of this quality, the choices are numerous and the meals are superb. Great care is taken in preparation and serving. The atmosphere is warm, casual and intimate. The food, prepared to order, is plentiful and inviting. While other lodges have cooks, we have a chef. Our head chef Martina Leitch has been cooking for over 35 years at high end resorts throughout North America and loves to employ locally grown and organic foods in her cooking, and her soups and homemade salads are nothing short of amazing. She owns a highly acclaimed restaurant in Rotaan, Honduras where she loves to create dishes from fresh caught fish and harvested meats.
Served from 7:30 a.m. until 8:30 a.m.
The breakfast bar features fresh fruit, hot and cold cereals, biscuits, sausage gravy, fruit juices, yogurt and sweet rolls. Our chef’s daily specials include your choice of eggs any way you like them, omelets, pancakes, waffles, french toast, bacon, sausage, potatoes, toast or English muffins.
For the very avid anglers, we offer a “to go” breakfast (delivered to your cabin the night before) consisting of juice, egg, ham and cheese muffin, cold cereal, milk and sweet roll to allow you an early morning start on the water.
You can return to the lodge for soup, sandwich and fresh salad or if you prefer to stay on the water (it can be tough to get away from a great day of fishing) you have several choices. The first options is for us to prepare a packed picnic lunch for you. With a plethora of choices including soup, sandwiches, salad, fresh fruit, chips, cookies, and cold drinks, you will always have a delicious meal to enjoy while fishing. Another option is a shore lunch (pictured to the right), to complete the Canadian fishing experience. No trip is complete without at least one hot lunch cooked over an open fire! We will provide all of the utensils and goodies for a delicious meal. Your easily portable shore lunch kit will include fresh walleye fillets (we provide locally harvested fresh fish as we are catch and release exclusively) and all the accouterments including onions, potatoes, beans, fresh lemon, fruit, cookies and a variety of spices as well as oil and all of the necessary utensils. With many already established fire pits along the shore and an abundance of clearings and islands along the out-lakes, you can stop whenever you’re hungry, build a small fire and cook a delicious, hot meal to your liking.
Pre-dinner Social Hour
From 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Hors d’oeuvres are served on the lodge decks along with free cocktails, beer, wine or your preference of alcoholic beverage. Our bar is top-shelf and well stocked. From Kentucky bourbons to high-end scotch or Caribbean rums. We also serve locally brewed beer on tap from a micro-brewery right here in town. Fresh kegs are delivered each week. There is no Bud-Light here! Mingle with your hosts and other guests and share some of the day’s excitement, great fish stories and hot spots of the day. This is also a great time to pick up some fishing tips and hear about the most current fishing conditions of the lakes! With 19 lakes to discuss and many guests that have been here for 25+ years, this time is sacred indeed.
Served at 6:00 p.m.
Start with homemade soup, breads and fresh salad each evening. Dinner entrees are served with fresh vegetables, potatoes, wild rice or pasta and come in both smaller and larger portions. Finish your meal with a selection of desserts- including cheesecake, brownies, pies and a Hawk Lake Lodge favorite, Saskatoon berry sorbet, along with many other delicious treats- offered each evening.
Hawk Lake Lodge also has a 450 bottle wine cellar with premium wines from around the world. You can order a bottle whenever you like and add the cost to your trip. Celebrating a special occasion such as an anniversary, promotion, child or honeymoon? Let us know and we can help find that special bottle, flower arrangement or Cuban cigar.
A varied menu with many options is offered for your enjoyment. If you have special requests or dietary requirements, with a bit of advance notice we can meet your needs. As some of our entrees are more adult palate oriented, we also offer children’s menus or prearranged meals for especially picky eaters.
Dinner selections are prepared by our chefs. All are home made with local ingredients and suppliers. Additionally, just like lunch if you cant away from the great fishing we have you covered. We will plate your meal and deliver it right to your refrigerator in your cabin. When you do decide to come in just pop it in your personal microwave oven and enjoy at your leisure. This is your time. Use it as you wish!Dinner Entrées & Children's Menu
