Take out

Got a large 1/2 pepperoni 1/2 cheese as well as a medium size Uffda pizza. Have to say the Uffda is my favorite. It has everything. The take out service is good and takes as long as it should to make and bake a pizza with that many toppings. Always happy that their pizza is consistent and isn't... read more

You'll love the Minnesota nice atmosphere you get from Sven and Ole's. The pizza is great too, you can't leave dissapointed. Grand Marais is also fun to spend a but if time in.

Stopped on a cold winters day in December while out on the North Shore. Had always heard about the pizza but had not experienced it. Magnificent is the word that comes to mind. Cannot wait to go back. Pizza in our family will be compared to Sven and Oles for awhile I am thinking.

Since Sept. have ordered delivery 4X, each time there is an issue, burnt pizza, the order is completely wrong or my order is lost and over 2 hours late! And dealing with a manager on duty is a nightmare, being told they do not refund $$$, want the order back before sending out another, delivery driver no longer available, blaming... More

I was told that this was the place to stop and eat while we stayed in Grand Marais and honestly I wasn't that impressed. Yes the pizza was good, but it wasn't anything spectacular

We stopped in for lunch while on our way back to Thunder Bay from a weekend in Duluth. We ordered a loaded pizza which was excellent. It's counter service where you order (they do not take your order at the tables). They serve pizza, wings, salads, etc. The establishment is an older building which has a variety of old nick-nacks...

thin, greasy, flavorless, soggy would best describe their 12 inch pizza. I had ordered sausage but received a pepperoni pizza. sigh. I'm ok with pepperoni and didn't want to wait longer so I ate it. This was my second visit to this restaurant and I really hoped I'd been wrong the first time. Nope. Crappy pizza. They do have a... More

Great pizza. We had the thick crust cheeseburger pizza. It was really good crust and came out real quick. Plus no lines being off season (Nov).

A unique spot that the locals seem to really enjoy as well. The decor is playfully Northwoodsy and Scandinavian, as it should be. There's a large bar area in the back of the restaurant that looked like fun. My wife and I were there simply for dinner and pizza, though, so I'll focus on that. You enter and order at... More

I love the nostalgia of Sven and Ole's. But then I love the north shore and being a city gal I am picky about my pizza. This is not the first time I have visited and it wont be the last. They have an okay selection and if you've been hiking or canoeing all day long this is the best... More
