“Crooked Spoon Serves Up Delightful Dishes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

After a cabin concert with Michael Monroe, three of us went to lunch at the Crooked Spoon because we recalled eating their several years ago and having good food. It was still there and still as good as ever. The salads were large in proportion and the vegetarian options excellent. The details of presentation made for lovely to look at servings as well as the textures a delight to the tongue. They served appropriate Irish dishes for St.Patrick's Day and those who ordered the Reuben and found it to be mouthwatering good.

“Very, very good. Cute and quaint!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Had lunch there on March 23, 2013. That was the last day before their closing until early May.
Husband had the special of the day which was a reuben. I had the french onion soup.
We were really looking forward to the oven fries, but alas, prior to our getting there, someone had ordered their last order for takeout. Because it was the last day, they did not have any more. Had to sub in the dill chips which were good.
Had a decandent dessert to share.
Will go back next time and hope to have those oven fries.

“An excellent restaurant in Grand Marais”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

The food was excellent. Both our meals were well prepared and presented, large quantities and the quality of the food was excellent. The service was very good as well and the waitress knew the menu very well and could answer any questions. We would definitely recommend The Crooked Spoon to anyone wanting a really great meal in Grand Marais.

“Taste bud euphoria never before experienced.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

The restaurant is quaint, the atmosphere exudes local appeal. Service was personal, friendly, fast (relative), and helpful! We went at lunch and the menu wax perfect for the punt of choices, and the price was more than reasonable for the amount of food. The food itself is an experience you won't want to miss! If you have to wait in line (as in summer months), it is worth your wait!! Don't miss any opportunity to experience The Crooked Spoon!!!
