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

I stayed at Gunflint over the Labor Day weekend with some friends on a fishing trip. We had a great time fishing and brought fish to Justine's to prepare. For the most part, the kitchen did an adequate job with the walleye (but how hard is it to screw up fried fish). However, the last night we were there, we... More

My family had dinner at Gunflint and were underwhelmed. They were out of all of the walleye entrees even though it was only 6:30 p.m. and the restaurant was less than half full. The chicken wings were good and the olive and herb bread was very nice. My chicken was so overcooked that I struggled to cut it. The accompanying... More

We ate dinners only. Walleye with mango salsa was excellent. Pasta was not as good; Gorgonzola white sauce was rich with a slightly bitter aftertaste. I would probably not order it again. Sandwiches were great, the chowder could lighten up on the salt but tasty. I give them a b+. Service is friendly, a little slow but hey, it's the... More

we'd eaten at Gunflint Lodge once before and because of the restaurant we decided to try a vacation at the lodge for our 25th wedding anniversary. The expectations were high, the reality of this place exceeded expectations! There was solitude when we needed solitude, there was wildlife when we needed wildlife. And the restaurant offered us great meals throughout our... More
