A Grand Marais tradition

What's going to Grand Marais without a stop at Sven and Ole's? The pizza is above average. There really is no service. Order at a counter, get a cup with a number, and eventually your pizza is delivered to you. The place has looked exactly the same for over 20 years.

We have been to Sven and Ole's a few times. They have good pizza, but a little on the spendy side for pizza.

The pizza was adequate but nothing special. It was mostly crust and could have used more cheese. This is a place where you order at the counter, find a seat in the dining room and someone will bring your pizza. The dining room is a bit rundown and dark. The clerk was friendly enough but not very helpful. There are... More

I stopped here before heading into the BWCA. I want to like this Grand Marais staple, but it's average at best. I was here once about five years ago and it was a Thursday night in March and they had a trivia night going on. That was neat, so when I do go back to this spot it'll be on... More

Love Sven and Ole's pizza. I was there by myself this visit. I went in early, before the crowds. The person taking my order was helpful with all my questions, and the pizza came out quickly. It was delicious. Took some back to the B&B with me. Would definitely go again.

Good Pizza and up north feeling! We have never been disappointed. Part of our annual up north winter trip would not be complete without pizza from Sven and Ole's!

After seeing all of the bumper stickers and hearing all of the hype we decided to try the pizza at Sven and Ole's. The pizza was excellent, however the service and atmosphere has much to be desired. When ordering we got behind 3 high school students who took quite awhile to figure out what to order. It would have been... More

Sven and Ole's is a tradition for my husband and me when we're headed to the BWCA. We've been here so many times, I can't even count but it is always good. We recommend the Uffdah Za hands down, thick crust that is.

It is a must visit in Grand Marais (along with Worlds Best Doughnuts). Almost everyone who has been to Grand Marais will know about Sven and Ole's. This is the place to go after 7 days canoeing in the Boundary Waters or a day out fishing or a family night out.
