A great place to stop and have a wonderful meal along the Gunflint Trail. The dining room has so much to look at! The food has always been awesome! Everything there is great! Love that you can get a great burger, fries AND a malt for about $10! Great for couples, families, friends etc.! One of the best places to eat in Grand Marais area, worth the beautiful drive there! Also, it's nice that there's a general store connected to it for anything you might need.

We stop in at least once every year, usually two or three times. Great food, great waitstaff. Love the Santa Fe grits for breakfast. Delicious! I had the prime rib and sauerkraut soup for dinner one night and it was sooooo tasty. The deep fried portabella mushrooms are great too. My husband loves the goober burger - a hamburger with peanut butter and mayo!! Our favorite craving would have to be the maple malts. And the ambiance - well, definitely fitting for the great north woods. Stop in, you'll be happy you did.

We visited my husband's Uncle Leroy on the Gunflint and ate several times at Trail Center. From breakfast to supper it was awesome flavored and plenty of it. Hope to eat there again soon!

We stayed down the Trail a little and had planned on eating out only once, but when we drove by again around lunch time one day, we had to go back! I had the walleye and fries the first time. The serving was very generous and tasted great. The second time, I had the chili in the bread bowl which was also very good. It you ate on the Gun Flint Trail during meal time, I highly recommend Trail Center Lodge.

Had a very nice Porterhouse steak with mushrooms and my wife had shrimp. Excellent flavor and well prepared for a little place half way up the Gun Flint Trail.
