Great food, great view, great drinks!

We loved everything about this place. We even purchased the t-shirts because of the meaning behind the logo. Read about it on the Gunflint Tavern website--the meaning is wonderful.

Interesting menu with tasty selections. We especially liked the mushroom stuffed potstickers. Great appetizer options. A good selection of locally brewed beer. Fun to meet others here.

Great atmosphere. It's a little dark, older people might have trouble reading the small type on the menu. We had fisherman's stew, ravioli, pizza, a turkey sandwich, and a hamburger. Everyone agreed the food was very good, very flavorful. We also had the creme brule, split between five, it was gone in about 30 seconds. Great draft rootbeer, parents say... More

We love the GFT!!!!!!!! My wife and I love to be on the north shore of Lake Superior. We love to hit all the state parks between Gooseberry and Pigeon River. We visit at all times of the year, often when it is quite cold. As a photographer, I am outdoors and on foot much of the time. The Gunflint... More

My husband and I eat here almost every time we're in Grand Marais. The food is always excellent, and a little different. Try their homemade corned beef sometime. Oh my! Their beer and wine is fun and unigue, they just opened a brew pub, too. Great for lunch or dinner.

The night we went to the Gunflint Tavern there was a popular live band playing. The place was packed so we were seated at their attached pub, The Raven. This had to be the friendliest place we visited in Grand Marais. The hostess at the Gunflint Tavern walked us to the pub and got us a seat. The bartender (I... More

The Gunflint Tavern was more than I expected. The atmosphere of this tavern mixed with slightly fancier dinner options makes it a great relaxed date night place. The food we ordered was delicious.

I've been here several times and have never been disappointed. The menu is extensive and the food has been excellent. My servers have been fun and very helpful. The view is beautiful. They have begun to brew their own beer. I HIGHLY recommend "Breakwater". Try it ! Also recommend their Reuben. Man, that was good!
