Good local brew

Only stopped in for a beer and appetizers so we didn't try the main menu. The IPA on tap was excellent and the appetizers were good. Would definitely go back when in the area.

We've been to Gunflint Tavern several times... it's always wonderful! Friendly wait staff, excellent drink selections and the food is amazing. We love it there! Be sure to try the Cuban sandwich and cream Ale!

Not a place for kids. The menu sucks! The food items are really weird. I like trying different things but the combinations offered are gross.

I had dinner here one night. The service at the bar was very slow. I ordered a Cuban Sandwich and what I was served is no where near a real cuban. This place tried to put it's own spin on the sandwich. The pork was overly spicy and was served with pickle, and some type of cream-spicy mayonnaise. Horrible sandwich!... More

Stopped in for a drink and appetizer. The staff seemed quite overwhelmed. Not sure if they were understaffed? Sat at the bar took a while for us to get served. Did not even order an app as took a while for drinks.

The menu here is eclectic and offers plenty of local brews. We went for the live music on a Thursday night and enjoyed the mix of blues and folk music.

Fantastic food, brews, atmosphere, staff! Menu looked a bit pricey, but after ordering and eating, it was worth every penny! Bar overlooks Lake Superior, and there is even a rooftop lounge. GREAT experience!

We ate twice at the Gunflint Tavern during our vacation to Grand Marais - lunch and dinner. The food is really good and our service was always great. This is a comfortable spot and a nice place to stop and relax after a busy day. Amazing bloody mary and fun to sit at the bar and check out currency from... More
