We stopped by for an early dinner on a Saturday evening after a day of skiing at nearby Lutsen Mountain. We made a reservation and when we arrived our table was already set for us with water, menus and tableware. Dana was our server, and she couldn't have been better. My boyfriend had the 1/2 rack of ribs and I... More

We liked the nice variety of dishes at this small restaurant. I had the special, a fish dish, that was quite good. And my wife tried the walnut burger that was also good. My children enjoyed their pizza and we all enjoyed our desserts. We also enjoyed the artwork on the walls from a local artist very much and have... More

Like the service and menu choices in a bright but cold spring. If you are a foodie this is a place to taste. Our waitress Amy was passionate about heroes and the menu that was offered. Local Canada steak had great char grilled flavour as well as the chicken Marsala. This is a gem amongst the backdrop of blue collar... More

My family ended up dining here after seeing that the Crooked Spoon was closed for the season and after reading the positive reviews on Yelp. What we discovered is our new favorite restaurant on Grand Marais. I had the Harbor House burger with soup and my wife had the Reuben with a mixed green salad. The bread from the rye... More

We discovered this restaurant last year while looking for somewhere to stop for lunch. At the time, it had only been open four months. We ordered the lunch special--soup, salad, and half a sandwich. We enjoyed our food so much, we went back to the restaurant for dinner a couple of days later, and were not disappointed. This year during... More

Made my first trip to Grand Marais last week. I only had a few hours to spend there and hoped to find a good lunch option since it would be my only meal there. (Hate to feel that I wasted my experience on a sub par meal, so I found HHG on Trip Advisor.) I was not disappointed!! The menu... More

We asked two locals for suggestions, two shopkeepers. Both said "Harbor House." It's a small place with light oak chairs and tables, kind of kitchen furniture, and that's appropriate: You feel like you are in someone's kitchen, and they really like to cook. Surprising entrees, each with a creative flair. We, however, were sent with strong recommendations for the burger,... More

VIsited earlier this year for Pizzas (all of them were great; can't beat wood oven pizza) and saw they had a Paella. Told them the pizzas were so good that I'd be coming back for the Paella. 4 orders, all off the charts deliscious. Seafood Paella, Seafood Alfredo, Margherita Pizza and the steak special. All incredible. We actually laughed and... More

When the Angry Trout across the street was closed for lunch, my boyfriend and I happened on this little gem! Very cozy restaurant with a little fireplace & maybe 10 tables. I think they do have more seating upstairs & a large deck overlooking Lake Superior - which would be wonderful in the summer! I had the chili & tomato... More
