We just grabbed a slice to go. Paid a little more for the convenience factor. Tasted great and free water.

The decor was interesting, with a definite Scandinavian theme. The pizza was okay, but not the best. It was worth a visit, though.

My family was excited to try the pizza and pasta at Sven and Ole's during our trip to Lake Superior's north shore this summer. The pizza was good but overpriced. They ran out of marinara sauce (the only kind my son will eat) at 6pm on a Wednesday night. Go figure. Maybe our expectations were too high but I can... More

Everyone who comes to Grand Marais thinks it is a duty to eat at Sven and Ole's just for the bumper sticker. This place is actually serving really great pizza! It is very similar to Red's Savoy pizza in St. Paul with heaping toppings of cheese and ingredients. Pleasantly surprised by the quality and price too. Will definitely be back!

There's been a few reviews that are knocking these guys for this or that. Sure, it's pretty expensive... and yes, they're probably capitalizing on their fame. However, we love the atmosphere, we love the pizza, and my wife and I go every single time we're in Grand Marais.

Sven and Ole's has been around forever and their pizza has always been excellent! And, the junk nailed to the wall actually makes for pretty interesting decor.

I'm originally from the Chicago area so by comparison, this pizza is just ok. We got the "thin" crust with lots of topping but the "thin" crust is not really thin.. We also got the wings and they were pretty good. The place is convenient.

Great service! The taste is exceptional! We stayed near by and they deliver until 10 PM. I have always heard how good the pizza was.. and now I know it's all true.

Had to do the tourist thing and eat at Sven and Ole's Pizza while in Grand Marais. Tried to go for dinner at 6 one evening and the line was to the door so we decided to try again at another time. Came back at about 3 the following day and while it wasn't quite as busy, there was still... More

I'm not going to tout that this place has the greatest food, but it's a fun, family restaurant that I visit on most trips to Grand Marais. Food is ordered at a counter and brought out to your table. It can get quite crowded so try to hit the earlier spectrum of meal time. My one complaint is that I... More
