Terrific beer and great food. Large selection on local beers, a mix of different cuisines . Huge portions! Stop with the family to get some straight forward dinner. Amazing tomato soup, turkey broth or Russian soup. Burgers , chicken or bangers and mash ! Well done. Fast service, and good food! Recommended!

I had The Best Bloody Mary at the GFT last weekend. It was spicy- just the way they should be. We also had a late lunch- I had the chicken wrap with a salad that was amazing. We will definitely be back!

We were seated promptly when we arrived. The hostess brought us water right away but then we waited over 20 minutes for a server who had noticed we weren't being helped so she came over. We ordered the Shem Nanos as an appetizer, a Cuban sandwich, and a gyro. It was all terrible. First the appetizer came after our sandwiches.... More

Have been to the Gunflint many times & have never been disappointed. They have such a varied menu & everything is wonderful. They also have local musicians for entertainment.

We come to the Gunflint area every fall & always stop here for drinks & food. Had several drinks here & the beer is always good. This year tried the mushrooms & they were huge. Loved the horseradish sauce that came with them. Have had the Brad pudding with pumpkin sauce in past years & it was amazing. Always very... More

Food was average at best and way overpriced. I had the veggie burger which was very sloppy to eat, and had the blue corn chips, which were ruined by some sort of gross queso that was poured all over them. Staff was friendly.

Not only do they have a very friendly staff but can enjoy a great craft beer, as you are entertained by Dick the bartender, he has a great sense of humor and sure to give you a laugh or two. This place is on the Main Street in Grand Marais rated number 16 in the states as places to visit,... More

This is must stop for us when we are in Grand Marais. So many wonderful menu options. The Carol Sandwich is a sure thing. But there so many other yummy foods. Servers and bartenders are always upbeat and friendly.

We shared and enjoyed the lemon chicken gyro and the Carol. Loved the food. They were understaffed but our young waitress handled like a trooper. Wonderful service!

There were at least three empty tables and the bar was full when we arrived. The hostess was running around trying to figure out what to do (who to put where, frantically trying to call people and/or find people that were on waiting list). We were told there would be an hour wait. (They take names and phone numbers...clearly it... More
