My husband and I visited Grand Marais for his 30th birthday in February and of course had to try out Sven and Ole's as we had heard about it from several people before our trip. The pizza here is SO good! Not super greasy and you can tell it's made fresh there! The atmosphere is nothing extravagant and outdated but... More

A very unique place that serves up fantastic pizza. You can choose from thin (kind of thin) or thick pizza. The flavor was outstanding and it was the one that had everything on it. Pretty vanilla facility. Also, serves as an ice cream shop.

Dropped in after a long day of driving. Pizza was great and staff was very accommodating! Great cold beer and wine if you wish. Pizza was well prepared with ample fresh toppings.

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.
