“You must eat here!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

I tried all sorts of food that I normally don't eat and everything was amazing! I wish there was one of these where I live! Unfortunately, I can't say the same about the staff, which is the only reason I didn't rate this place excellent. But the entertainer was great and like I said, the food was spectacular! And the drinks were just as good! Oh, I wish I could go back here more often! I'll say it again, you MUST eat here!

“Asian Big Bowl”

Is Fantastic!! After walking into the place for the first time, I spotted several people eating something that looked amazing and so I walked up to the counter and said I'll have that. Delicious!

“Great beer, okay food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Great beer selection, but the food is pretty expensive for what you get. The portion sizes are enough to fill you up, but the quality of the food doesn't warrant the price tag. I would recommend it for drinks, especially in the summer, when you can use their upstairs patio that overlooks lake superior and the bay.

“Good place for drinks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

We had drinks at The Raven (bar at the Gunflint Tavern) over the weekend we spent at Grand Marais. Great bartender Robert. Food was so so although the dry rubbed chicken wings were really good. Food Prices were high.

“Out of This World”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

This is the place to be on a chilly fall or spring day! The menu is eclectic to say the least. Everything from soups (wonderful) to sandwiches, Dungeness Crab, steamed mussels, and the Asian Bowl and Bloody Mary's are to die for, do NOT pass one up served with the snit of your choice (small beer chaser). The Raven Tavern (attached) is a good stop for a drink and the deck above affords a bird's eye view of the going on at Harbor Park. Music in evening in summer and weekends off season- probably for a bit younger group than we have. Service is great, but this place is packed during tourists season, so be patient!
