My husband and I recently spent a long weekend in Grand Marais. We went to the Harbor House Grille on Friday night for dinner and we were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. The brandy old fashions were one of the best we've ever had! It's a very cozy, quaint restaurant with a gas fireplace in the dining... More

Enjoyed a dinner that suited all of the tastes at our table. Service was great. Truly a feeling that the chef/owner cares about the food quality and presentation. We will make it a stop in our future trips to the area.

Went for lunch with a few friends the other day and had the Ceasar Salad with chopped Sirloin. The salad was fantastic and the steak cooked to perfection. My buddies had a burger and the fish & chips which they both really liked. The service is excellent and we had a really great lunch. If portions were a tad larger,... More

We were a party of ten travelling from Florida and Austrailia. The hotel we stayed at recommended it so we decided to go. We really had a good time there. Saffron was our waitress and she did an excellent job. The only thing is they close at 8:30. Nevertheless, they never made us feel rushed and we were there till... More

This is a tiny cozy spot to get some really tasty food for a reasonable price along the lake front to get lunch or dinner.

Incredible fresh food, great atmosphere, very nice wait staff. This was our second time having supper at the Harbor House Grille and there's no doubt we'll go back on our next trip to or through Grand Marais, MN. Michelle W. Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada

It was a little chilly and short-staffed on New Years Eve, but the food was worth it. I had lobster bisque and a lovely side salad. My friend enjoyed her duck confit. My daughter really liked her hamburger, and her friend had to take leftovers home because her Margherita pizza was generous. We were too full for dessert.
