Duluths Old Stand By

We have been coming to Grandma's for over 20 years. It's part of the tradition of coming to Duluth. Service can be hit or miss. The most recent time we were there- service was good. The location is perfect - then take a walk out on the canal and visit the Maritime museum.

we came up to Duluth for our spring break day trip. Stopped in and love the decor and overall attitude of the staff. While our linner was a bit pricey it was spectacular. Only recommendation is to avoid the kids mac n cheese as it was gross for my oldest. It was most certainly out of a box. But everything... More

My wife and & I often eat at the original Grandma's Saloon and Grill in canal park when we come into town. The original has no equal in location and historic ambiance. They have a very good chicken wild rice soup. There golden onion rings have been a favorite for 20 years. They have a wide variety of salads. I... More

In that order, these are the reasons I like Grandma's. When I'm overnighting in Duluth for work, Grandma's is just a short walk from a Canal Park hotel. Bartenders have always had personality and the food always well prepared and generously portioned.

Is it just me or is the Canal Park Grandmas better than the one by the Miller Hill Mall? Canal Park is so much more friendly. They make you feel like they are sincerely happy to see you ! And I have never had a bad plate from Canal Park. Miller Hill Mall location....... Now that is a whole different... More

I have had the Tetrazzini at least 10 times from the Virginia location and I can tell you the Duluth location is not as good

I have been going to grandmas forever, pretty much every time I'm in Duluth! They have really great wild rice dishes, I've never left here unsatisfied. I was excited to see they are now serving Vikre gin, as the distillery is right next door.

This is our favorite dish at Grandma's, and did not fail during our latest visit. The Wild Rice is cooked to perfection, and the white sauce is fantastic over the chicken and rice... the chese even makes it better! The apple crisp was very tasty as well!

This resturant is close to the hotels and the lake front. Fast service and very good food. The deserts were super, just what I needed after a long hard day.
