Family wanted Pizza while we were staying in Grand Marais. I had eaten at Sven and Ole's years ago and was very disappointed. This time the pizza was good. I have no complaints, but I have had much better pizza in other restaurants. I would recommend it as a place to go if you are on the North Shore and... More

We had the Oktoberfest special pizza and I just loved it! My fiancé thought it had too much brown mustard, but I didn't mind. I loved it. The gal who took our order, could have had a more friendly personality. It was busy and in between the customers ahead of us and us she decided to stare out the window.... More

This is a very popular restaurant especially on the weekend. We have eaten and have also done take out. We felt the pizza was reasonably priced. One of our favorites is the Uffda pizza which is really a supreme with sausage, green pepper, and mushrooms. There were huge chunks of sausage and the sauce was the right amount of spice.... More

We really enjoyed the pizza at Sven & Ole's Pizza. the crust was perfect not to thick and not paper thin. The sauce was good but could have used a little more zip to it. Our service was excellent and so were the cocktails. We will be back.

We vacation on the a North Shore at least once a year, and a stop at Sven and Ole's for pizza has become a tradition. Anyone visiting the North Shore needs to plan a stop at Sven and Ole's. The pizza is very good, although a bit pricey. The selection of bottled beer in "The Pickle Herring" is outstanding. Since... More

We live here, so we have only been a handful of times. If you're a tourist you should stop here and see for yourself. Get it over and done with. As a resident, it is far far cheaper to make your own at home or buy store-bought pizza. The iconic atmosphere is the biggest draw, but other than that it... More

It's true...for the best pizza between Duluth and Thunder Bay, Sven and Ole's is worth the drive! As an out-of-town customer for 15 years, I recommend the thick crust Uffdah Za -- it's a can't miss and satisfying pizza pie, you betcha!

We always eat here when we're in the area. Love the atmosphere, and the pizzas are always great. So many different type of pizza to choose from.

The pizza here is great. I was even shocked to find out that sauerkraut actually works well on pizza. Don't fear they have traditional toppings too if you aren't adventurous.

fun atmosphere. great pizza! the pizza is always fresh and homemade. the beer is cold. it's a small cozy informal restaurant which will allow you to relax and fill a big appetite after wandering around Lake Superior
