A nice restaurant with a diverse menu. A lot of food for the money with some excellent local fish items. I love Walleye, so I had almond encrusted broiled Walleye dinner and my wife had the Walleye Wrap appetizer. The service was slow due to staffing issue, but it was worth the wait.

Thank you for your review. We do have a number of excellent ways to serve walleye here. We're sorry that your service was slower than you expected. We have been very busy with fall color visitors and are working to address that issue with our staff. More

It has been 6 years since I last visited Gunflint and I can safely say what was good remained and the added services an enhancement. Items on the menu I have had in the past and enjoyed remained on the menu and I did not note a difference. I was not all that hungry on my arrival and ordered a... More

Thank you for your review. I am sorry our hand-pattied burgers did not impress you, but our Sunday night barbeque is a summertime favorite here at Gunflint. If you stop by again, I hope you'll try it. An added benefit of eating on our patio overlooking Gunflint Lake is the fabulous lake view and gorgeous sunsets in the evening. More

VERY good service from our waiter. The food came out quickly and was very tasty! The view at the window was beautiful. The BBQ wings were fantastic, the malts very large and yummy and the fish was very good as well.

We were there on Sunday night, and had the BBQ buffet. It was excellent. Our wait staff was superb, John and Jodi (our wait staff) are all about service, never a dirty plate or a half full drink. They are also fun to talk to, and make you feel welcome.

Took a trip up the Gunflint trail and had lunch at gunflint lodge. Service was friendly, had a wild rice soup with club sandwhich which was good although somewhat spendy in my opinion. However only so many options this far up the trail.

We ate here our first night at the Lodge because after unpacking and wandering the grounds for a bit we wanted to relax and have a good hot meal. Our waiter was busy so service was a bit slow, but he was very personable and attentive. I ordered a cup of soup, which was made in-house, and the fish and... More

We had a horrible experience here. took for every to get service, we waited 20 minutes to even get menus. When we placed our order they were out of the hotdogs for two of the meals we ordered,so we switched these items to meals that were fish. The order went into the kitchen. The next large table that came in... More

We sat at an umbrella table and beheld a breathtaking view of Gunflint Lake. Being vegetarian and gluten-free, we were delighted to find these amazing salads located on the lunch / dinner menu. The salads had nice greens, pecans, blue cheese, and an array of other great tasting ingredients with a choice among salad dressings. They were delicious from first... More

We have been going to Gunflint Lodge every year for many years now. The restaurant just isn't what is used to be. We were staying on site and had several meals there. The meals were fine but they used to be great! We loved our waitress -- Amanda. The setting is perfect, the service is good but the food is... More
