We stopped at Sven and Ole's based on a recommendation: "If you're driving up the north shore, you have to stop at Sven and Ole's". So we did. Ordering didn't seem to go smoothly: the young man behind the counter was not able to answer questions like what was in the sandwiches and what was on certain pizzas. Maybe these... More

We have been here before and knew the food was good and we weren't disappointed. Very easy walk from our hotel and other shops.

To be fair, I have been going to this place for a decade or more. I went this past weekend with my boyfriend, and both of us felt that something had changed in the pizzas, but we couldn't figure out what was wrong with it. I for one felt that they skimped on the sauce this time, along with the... More

Great northern touch! We stop here everytime we go to Grand Marais. Quaint, casual place that you order at a counter and take a cup with your number on it to the table, grab some cutlery on the way and watch sports or answer trivia on the tv. Pizzas are AWESOME!! Thin crust and large are great! Busy and casual... More

It's a dependable favorite for our family. Service is good, dining area is clean, it's always quite busy. Excellent pizza. We had a Hawaiian and a pepperoni/sausage combo. Great filler for after a hike and cliff diving at Artist Point!

We had the Buffalo Chicken pizza, sausage pizza and a Caesar salad with chicken. Food was excellent but line was long, wait was long and seating felt limited. We actually got a seat rather quickly but felt somewhat crowded and were uncomfortable to have others standing waiting for seating to open up. So, great food but crowded atmosphere.

This is a very "hometown" restaurant where there's nothing fancy but you get good food and good service. We had a deep dish meat lovers that we took to our campsite - yummmmmmm! A must try if you haven't ever been - truly a northern Minnesota landmark.

We were very lucky when we arrived that there was not a long line, because there usually is a bit of a wait. The pizza is very good and we'll definitely go back next time we are in Grand Marais! Be prepared to wait for your order, as they are usually very busy.

We went to Sven and Ole's on a Wed night during the height of tourist season, ordered or pizza, and sat down to wait, for over an hour. Pizza was very good and hot, , but I recommend calling ahead if you want to eat there for supper during the busy sewason , or try lunch, that could be better.

We had pizza but were not overly impressed after all the hype about the place. Food was good but average.
