My husband I came to Grand Marais and found this special restaurant/ brew pub by chance. I had one of the best pizzas I've ever had and the beer was outstanding! On top of that, the lighting was cozy and the ambiance very nice. The service was very good as well. Definitely a great ending to a fabulous day in... More

Last time I was in Grand Marais it was early August 2016 before the new restaurant/bar up the street had opened and this place was the only show in town. I ate there two nights in a row because I didn't want to drive down to Seney and back after hiking all day, and that was the closest alternative. The... More

Been coming here for years. It's a local place that brews a few decent beers. Food is good. Have to have the parmesan garlic popcorn. It's sinful. They have a jukebox with lots of great tunes. Very low key place. You can shoot pool for about 50¢. It's a good local spot for a pizza and a few beers. They... More

Good food, good beer and wine, good service, and good local atmosphere. Ate here twice while in Grand Marais (not many choices at the end of October), enjoyed it both times. Good local flavor.

Stopped for lunch while camping at Pictured Rocks. This was a great place to relax for a bit before going back to the wilderness. The fish tacos were super delicious. The beer wasn't great (I ordered a cherry beer and it tasted a bit like cherry flavored medicine), but everything else made up for it. Great food, atmosphere, and friendly... More

We blew in on a rainy fall day and were treated to great food and prompt, courteous service in a very pleasant atmosphere. Everything was done to make our meal and drinks enjoyable. We took away some fabulous pizzas to eat later.

For over 10 years the Dune Saloon was on my must visit list whenever I got to the UP for fishing in the summer and hunting in the fall. The burgers & pizza were great as was their in-house beers. The last couple times the quality of the food had slipped, especially the hamburgers which came on cold buns and... More

We stopped here for dinner while driving from Whitefish Pointe to Muinising. We were sad that we arrived after dark, so we didn't get to enjoy the town, but we did have dinner while we were here. We were not famished, so we decided to split the whitefish plate which came with a trip to their salad bar. I am... More

Loved this place. Looked like a mix of locals and tourists visit this bar. Beer selection was not huge, probably due to it being the end of the tourist season. I had a Sandstone Pale Ale, very light, but the flavor was good. I only had time to stay for one beer, but really liked this bar. I would love... More
