Only the Best

Cedar Chest Restaurant and Bar is one of the best-loved restaurants in the Lakes Area. We are located in Crosslake overlooking Pine Lake and offer a comfortable dining experience with welcoming and friendly staff.

And, most importantly, our food tastes great!

We only use the best ingredients, and all of our dishes are freshly prepared. The recipes we use have stood the test of time and have earned countless fans of all ages.


Our appetizers include grill favorites like chicken wings, batter-dipped onion rings, and corn dogs. We recommend our fantastic steamed mussels served in garlic butter, or you could go or some Mexican flavors with a mini taco or chicken quesadilla.


All baskets include batter-dipped fries, tater tots, fresh cut fries, or coleslaw. You have a choice of chicken strips, shrimp, drummies, or fish. Dipping sauces are included.

Sandwiches and Salads

Our sandwiches are famous for miles around. Particular favorites include our Philly French Dip, the Grilled Rueben, the Chicken Honolulu, or the lean and tender 6 oz. sirloin steak.

We also have a range of salads to choose from, including our most popular, the crunchy chicken.

Burgers and Pizza

Our burgers are popular with all of our diners. We offer classic burgers that you already know and love, but we also have amped-up varieties of American favorites. Why not try a Triple B Burger (burger, bacon and BBQ sauce with cheese) or a Starvin’ Marvin (two half pound patties with cheese)?

We also offer pizzas with your choice of toppings.


If the rest of the menu has only worked up your appetite for more, our extensive menu also includes entrées like steak, fish, shrimp, chicken, and ribs. All of our dinner menu items come with a choice of side order.
