Surprisingly Good

While the service and delivery was slow, which was inexplicable since there weren't many diners in the restaurant, I found the food to be very tasty, and presented well. The waitress was friendly and personable. Ice teas and cokes were cheerfully kept full.

The food was only average, as was the service - for above-average prices. It used to be a real treat for a meal!

Justine's has a nice selection of appetizers and entrees, as well as a well stocked in a location 45 miles from the nearest town. They especially know how to prepare walleye. Very satisfying.

Always great food, pleasant staff and steps away from your cabin. We have been regular visitors, 2x a year since Sept. 2012. The dogs love it at Gunflint as much as we do !

We stayed at the Gunflint lodge for a few nights, so having the restaurant on site was really nice. Breakfast was included with our lodging, and it was a full breakfast ordered off the menu. All three of our breakfasts were very good - the pancakes were awesome. For dinner we had the walleye special, and it was excellent. The... More

We were there at the resort for several days and every meal was fantastic. They had such a wide variety of meals to choose from.

1st of all I want to say this is only because of the server. His name is Chris. We have been to the lodge many times for dinner. But, the 3rd time we have had the server named Chris I just had to say something. He has been rude and unfriendly each time we've had him. The first time was... More

Forget having Walleye anyplace else. The Gunflint Lodge has the best, most mouthwatering beer battered walleye. Thin crispy delicately fried - tempura like batter which keeps the walleye steaming and moist. It is so delicious that you abandon all accompanying homemade fries and wonderful side green salad drizzled with regional dressings of blueberries and maple. And while we're on the... More

Don't leave Justine's restaurant or the Red Paddle Bistro at Gunflint Lodge without trying their walleye chowder. Justine's is more formal and quieter than eating in the main room of the Gunflint Lodge, but the food for both come out of the same kitchen. Two walleye plates are seemingly always on the menu at Justine's. I'd recommend the Beer Batter... More

They have a special sharing menu (Buddy Burger) deal where you can split a burger and get an extra side for an additional $2. Wife and I split a Gunflint Burger which was ok but nothing special. I had fries which were good but wife had a cup of walleye and wild rice chowder. I wish I had just gotten... More
