“Great place to eat after a day of hiking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

We ate at Sven and Ole's after hiking all day during a beautiful weekend in August. My family of four grabbed an open table right away and then we went and put in our order. The large pizza had 8 BIG slices that was perfect for our family. We had the all meat thin crust. The crust was perfection and meat was all fresh and very plentiful. A large meat pizza and 2 refillable drinks came to $30. We thought that was a bargain! They sell ice cream cones there too, so that was the perfect way to end our night!

“A bit pricy, but delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

We ordered carry-out pizza on a Friday night and paid $48 for two large pizzas. The taste of the pizza was excellent, and we ate the leftovers the next day. Would recommend!

“A tradition when visiting Grand Marais”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

There pizza is fantastic, thick and tasty. The sausage pizza is great. One or 2 pieces really fills you up. It is the place to stop for families and casual dining so there is often a bit of a wait at meal times. However, we stopped in for a ice cream cone during our stay in Grand Marais and were disappointed in the small cone for $2.50.

“Bang for your buck”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

This was the only place we ate on the North Shore where we felt like the prices were "normal", not inflated because of the location. That's why I'm rating it "very good" because we got tired of paying "upscale" prices for every meal. The food was plentiful, and good, the atmosphere was rustic and festive.

“Good pizza, order at the counter and find your own table.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Sven and Ole's is an iconic spot in Grand Marais and worth a visit. There is a lot to look at within the main dining room and it's fairly loud so the kids fit in quite well! Like most spots in town, it was crowded. The service could have been friendlier. Take a look at the menu online prior to going so you know what to order - - that part is rather chaotic.
