“A local favorite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

I recommend this for breakfast or lunch - it's a nice restaurant with a very "at-home" feel. The staff have always been very nice and prompt and the food is consistently good. You definitely get your moneys worth here. And be careful - the pancakes are huge!

“Nothing to fuss about”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

The breakfast here was fairly average fare and more expensive than can be found at other breakfast spots in the Falls and Fort. We had a somewhat negative experience due to our order being mixed up and then being charged for items we hadn't ordered, but it was corrected. We will take Sandy's or the Coffee Landing any day!

It is a tradition in our family to always do Grandmas when our kids come home to visit. They grew up with Grandma's and they love it..esp the Wild Rice Pancakes!

“You HAVE to go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

Grandma's is such a classic Northern Minnesota eatery. It is full of charm where any visitor can catch up on what is going on in Ranier. Try the walleye sandwich- you won't regret it!

“What is the fuss?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

We went to Grandma's Pantry with an open mind and high expectations due to so many glowing reviews on various review sites. We just don't get it. Here is our take:

The Good: Clean with good service.

The less Good: Very noisy, typical mom and pop ambience. Prices seemed a little steep to us for what you get ($6 for a pancake that costs maybe $.20 to make?) The omelette, which is touted as made from scratch, was typical with cheap processed cheese food for a filling. No potatoes were provided. The toast, which is touted as homemade was indistinguishable from plain old store bought white bread. Straight off the Sysco truck crappy packets of cheap jam were provided. The salsa requested must have come out of a jar. Wife's hashbrowns were the blah frozen type. Believe me, this is not anything special. Sandy's in the Falls is a step above, and the Coffee Landing is two steps above Grandma's. However, if you think Mcdonalds is good you may love this place!
