Great brews and excellent food

I was a bit surprised to find such a good brewery in a small town. I tried their blueberry hefeweizen, and it was pretty good. Loved how I could actually taste the blueberries. Food wasn't too shabby either - split a veggie pizza with a friend. They are pretty generous with their toppings, and it's... read more

We drove from Mackinaw City to Grand Marais specifically to buy growlers of their homemade root beer for our boys back home roughly a 2-2.5 hr drive. We also ate luch, we inquired about the root beer after ordering and were told they might not have enough to sell growlers as they hadnt brewed any for a while, although we... More

Great White Fish, Hamburgers & Pizza -- and you have to try the Scotch Eggs and Popcorn. Their beers are excellent and always enjoy the seasonals as the fruit beers aren't too sweet. We've been here multiple times of the year and it is always a welcoming stop on our travels.

The ribs were simply amazing - juicy and fall off the bone tender. It was a great dinner and the salad bar was worth the little extra cost.

Busy place as it is close to a campground but pleasant staff, nice service. We had pizza and felt it was very good and reasonably priced.

I have visited the Dunes Saloon on several occasions through the years, and each time I have great food (and beer) served in a charming North Woods tavern. Once again, on a recent visit with my family,we had a great dining experience. All of us tackled the pizza with enjoyment, and the missus and I liked sampling different craft beers.... More

It may be me, but it seems like the locals are weary of the tourists. It was a packed house on a Tuesday so we sat at the bar. As one reviewer stated, they are out of several items after a busy weekend. No whitefish, scotch eggs, it Reubens. I had the ribs which were very good and my husband... More

My annual week in Grand Marais starts with the beer sampler from The Dunes - yum! From then on, I settle in with my favorite pint - Hematite Stout. When the fishing has been good, they have wonderful whitefish - it is fresh, so if they haven't caught any, you will have to go to your Plan B meal. Pizza,... More
