“Good food-Good Choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

We ate here last year. We like the food, location, and atmosphere. Service is good. Staff is friendly, and the food is very good with a vast selection to choose from.

“Service Issue”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

It's been four years since I've been to the Gunflint Tavern in Grand Marais. Went there last night with my wife, expecting the same great food and service as we've had previously. They lost the service! Wait staff was so busy talking to a large group (not serving, not taking orders, just talking) that they were oblivious that others were waiting to have their orders taken.

Got up and asked for a new person to wait on our table. There was an ensuing conversation between the three or four waitresses, but NONE OF THEM came to the table for another five minutes.

We gave up.

Left the restaurant and went to the Crooked Spoon a block east of the Gunflint. Much better service and great food.

“Great food, beer and entertainment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

If you are looking for good beers in the Grand Marais, Mn area this is the place to go. The food was also fantastic. Great selection on the menu and if you like hot wings get them here. They are hot but they are delicious.

“Excellent meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Stopped in Grand Marais for a quick dinner before heading on to the BWCA. Great beer selection and some interesting food choices. The tamales were very good, and my husband enjoyed his daily special smoked trout wrap. Service was excellent, and although we were on our way out of town, it was nice of the waitress to tell us about the live music that evening.
