Sven and Ole's does one thing and they do it well. Don't go here expecting a "classy" dining experience or anything like that. This is a pizza joint, plain and simple. Order your food, get your own drink from the fountain, and wait for your food. There is a bar area, or a brighter area with booths and tables for... More

Many people wonder about Norwegians and piazza but you needn't fear it 's Italian and delicious. The fun begins at the door. Come in and place your order and grab a table. It 's hard to wait but worth it. This is a tradition for many who come to the area come in and make it yours as well.

Fun little local place. People were nice, guy delivering pizza was very friendly. The pizza was good, great crust and nice variety of beer choices. Individual salads pretty boring.

We were at a motorhome rally & Sven & Ole's delivered 20+ pizzas! vowels of salad & piles of wings. Pizza was hot, wings were superb and salad was crisp & fresh. Pepperoni & vegetable pizzas were excellent. Margherita pizza was good, but the mushroom & Canadian bacon pizza just had an off taste. We all certain ally had our... More

This is not a 5 star restaurant, this is an honest mans pizza joint, you get your own drinks and take a number to your table. The point of Sven and Oles pizza is in the title, Pizza! And they make it very well, of course you will have to learn 'Yew Betcha' Norwegian speak to understand da menu, and... More

I heard lots about Sven and Ole's pizza. On the way to Duluth we stopped off here for lunch. I had the cheese pizza slice. The pizza was reasonably priced. Honestly, I think it was overhyped, but it was good...don't get me wrong.

Our son ate the pizza, which was good. The person taking the order could have been friendlier! It does take awhile to get your order as well.

Stopped by for some pizza during our trip to the north shore and what a discovery this was. They were very busy but got our pizza in good time, great place to stop during a visit to Grand Marais

My party (11 hungry guys passing through town on a motorcycle trip) walked in and the manager/bartender got us all seated together on the upper bar level. Good draft beer offerings. Excellent pizza in both thin crust and deep dish offerings (would hold its own against many pizzerias in big cities). This was our first time there; it won't be... More

This is one of those places you need to stop at in town. The thick crust is where it's at. Would be nice if there were some outdoor seating, but the inside is somewhat charming.
