The food was better than average but the service was below average. We had a glass of wine and a app. I probably wouldn't go here again.

Stopped for lunch. Seemed to be short staffed. Food was great! Muffuletta, soup and sandwich, trout wraps--all great!

Food was incredibly good, impeccably prepared. The Jalapeno Popper Quesadilla was one of the most delicious things I think I have ever put in my mouth. Beer was their own brew and was excellent.

Nice atmosphere, 3 different bars, one on every level! They brew their own beer in house by an adorable brew master, great bartenders, unbelievable photo worthy bloody marys, omg! Didn't eat here, the bloody marys are a meal in themselves lol, you've gotta try one!

We asked a local person where we could eat and enjoy an adult beverage, and he recommended Gunflint Tavern. This was a wonderful restaurant and brewery. The beer was great and the food was very good. There is a wonderful view of Lake Superior and dockside right out the large windows. Just a nice atmosphere. Would definitely frequent this restaurant... More

Nice menu. Little out of ordinary. They try to use locally sourced when possible. Blue corn chips with the sauce....really good. Everyone loved their food.

We have dined there several times over the years. This time, it was very crowded, and we were fortunate to get the last seats. Good selection of beers. Great appetizers. We had very good salads and chips and cheese.

I've eaten here several times and when I order a sandwich or burger, it's the best. Husband and I ordered steaks once and they weren't. Very disappointing as it was also one of the most expensive steaks we had ordered. That being said, their Reuben is one of my favorite Reuben's of anywhere. It is spot on, tasty!! Served with...

We were seated right away by the window with a view of the bay. Our service was great. My husband had a pulled pork sandwich which he thought was excellent. I had a veggie burger. Nit quite as good. A little mushy.

Great food but only one bathroom for two bars. Good location. Large selection of beer. Unique freezer made from bank vault.
