Every time we go to Grand Marais we go to Sven and Ole's. Yes it's usually crowded and ordering at the counter is a little bizarre but the pizza itself is great. We have had thick and thin crust and both our excellent. A must stop while visiting the city!

Fantastic pizza. This is a staple spot when visiting Grand Marais. We ordered our pizza and took it home to eat, but the atmosphere in the restaurant is very unique and worth the stop.

A Grand Marais institution. Its pizza (frozen) is sold throughout the Minneapolis/ Saint Paul area. It has been there for decades. You will see their bumper stickers on cars all over the country. A favorite of locals and tourists.

Great pizza joint. Not the cheapest, but you get what you pay for. We stop every year and after 10 years, still look forward to the pizza!

We always eat at Sven and Ole's when we are in town. The pizzas are large and very tasty. We always order extra and then eat the rest on the hiking trail.

Somewhat long wait, but the pizza was worth it. I would recommend for any pizza lover who's not in a rush.

This is a North Shore tradition. The pizza is pretty good and rather expensive. Hump Day buffet during the winter is a good value and really good.

I have been here many times and have never had a bad pizza or dish! Waiting to order can sometimes be a wait but it is well worth it!!

We stopped with hungry kids. Server immediately poked fun at the kids making it a great family experience. Pizza was up quickly. We had vivid vun that had everything included wild rice. It was great and even better cold for breakfast the next day. Great place. Paper plates, clean, quick.
