Really good pizza

This place has been around for years and not much changes....kind of like Grand Marais in general. It is a comfortable place to hang out with good beer and some of our favorite pizza. Depending on the time of your visit, it can range from VERY crowded to empty. If you stop by after a busy... read more

Most businesses in the U.P. close early. We found most closed between 7-9 P.M. On our last day of vacation, we added a few extra activities and had resigned ourselves to lunch meat sandwiches from a gas station for dinner because it was as past closing time for most businesses. This was open, and we tried it out. We were... More

The beer was novel 15 years ago and is still not bad but you would think in 15 years they could try brewing something new? Ah shucks I guess that the UP eh! Foods fine and the service is what you would expect from a bar. Go have fun and enter with low bar food expectations and you survive. My... More

Had a few drinks and an appetizer. The artichoke dip was fantastic! The service was not the greatest and we were sitting right at the bar. This is the only place in town to go so I guess you really don't have a choice. All the food around us looked really good!

After trying the West Bay Diner, but waiting too long for a seat, we came directly here. It too was crowded, but we found a nice table along a side wall. In less than a minute, our server came and took our drink order, then came back a few minutes later with our drinks and took our food order. Our... More

Despite being packed when we arrived the staff was friendly and our order was taken shortly after finding a place at the bar. The bartender was quick to bring us a drink and place our order. We enjoyed several Lake Superior brews while waiting for our food and both thought the burgers were great. We didn't travel 4 hours for... More

Good beer, great pizza and festive atmosphere make this spot a hit! We ate dinner here twice during our stay in Grand Marais, and loved it. Well worth the wait for a table, the place was absolutely slammed but the servers handled the crowd with expertise and genuine friendliness. A mix of tourists and local keep the place lively, and...

Stopped here for a late lunch after some hiking along the coast. Decent beers, good waitstaff and solid food. The crowd favorite was the grilled cheese sandwich (more like a panini). They have home made cream soda and root beer that were both worthy.

I love this little town and this was only my second visit in so we decided to try this place. Friendly atmosphere and good food and beer was tasty as well.

It's a small town so not much to choose from. They had decent beer and decent food. The scotch eggs were really really good. I would go again.
