This is a stop we do every time up the north shore. It's a busy place but always great food and service. The patio is a great way to spend lunch or dinner on. Can't go wrong with their steak bites and the house meatloaf, better then my grandmas! Overall just a great experience and will be back again.

The steak bites appetizer were the best. I was tempted to order another order for my meal. had the pasta dish which was very tasty. But those steak bites, definitely worth the trip.

Our meals were decent, but I wouldn't call them excellent. Typical of Minnesota's North Shore, most things were a bit over-priced. I think most folks will find something they will enjoy here. Service was good. Before I return to Blackwood Grill, I might try someplace else.

The food was excellent and the service was good. We were not seated immediately cause the hostess wasn't there, but she showed up after a couple of minutes. I can't remember what everyone had but I do know that we all loved our food. I would go again and do recommend it.

Not really impressed. Everything was just okay. Nothing was awful, but not memorable either. I had the hot turkey sandwich, which was an enormous portion, with tons of tasty turkey, but the gravy was a little off, and pretty salty. My husband had the special of the day, a whitefish dish, which he said was pretty good, but the portion... More
