“Pricey, but great.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I usually avoid the "upscale" eateries, but I gave this one a try and was very glad I did. Great meal, "fancy" presentation. Weather permitting, ask for a table outside!

“Soooooo good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

The food is wonderful. We do miss some of the breakfast options with their new menu, but all thing must change. Their lunch anad dinner menu is great. This year our favorites were the scallops and the venison tenderloin, but then how can we not mention.... well, everything else we had during out stay. Our biggest "complaint" if you want to call it that is the current chef no longer has the supurb Creme brule of the past. Please bring it back, along with those special pancakes with pecans and more. We love this place and the above is not meant to be a negative. Their menu has something for everyone to enjoy.

“Great food”

Knowledgeable & friendly wait staff. Delicious menu items. Check out the herring or the roasted pumpkin & couscous.

“Less than stellar...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Our expensive meals were nothing special. Our waitress was inattentive and snotty. We love to vacation in the area, but I don't thing we will bother to come back to Bluefin Inn Restaurant. Coho Cafe and the restaurants in Grand Marais are much better.

“Excellent Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Excellent food, however portions are small on the appetizer plates and the $$$ is high for what you get. Great view of Lake Superioir while you are dining.
