The restaurant has a distant view of Lake Superior. The interior is spacious and comfortable. The menu is very eclectic and everything we have had is excellent. This is a "go to" place for us. They also have a large selection of beer and an upstairs deck with spectacular vista.

Great place to get a beer...don't miss the roof top deck which overlooks Grand Marais harbor. The food is great but kind of expensive

We were planning on finding on outdoor dining spot but ran across this place and popped in. They do not have outdoor dining but decided to try it. We had the sausage pizza, an enormous walleye sandwich (yum) and a turkey quesadilla that my son loved.

The food at the Gunflint Tavern is always exceptional which is why we grin and bear it and continue going to this establishment when in Grand Marais. Anytime you have a question or a request, the servers/bartenders appear put out by your request. It is as we should feel honored and privileged to be at this restaurant rather than feel... More

Stopped in for a burger and drinks, and ended up with one of the best burgers I ever had as well as a great local brewed IPA. Great atmosphere, just wish you could take food to the roof to enjoy the view.

Gunflint knows how to mix drinks. Their Bloody Mary is spicy, delicious and could qualify as an appetizer.

We had the chicken salad wrap and gyros with blue chips. Very good. We normally don't eat in bar settings but this was very comfortable with great service and good prices. It was after 8:30pm making it hard to find a place to eat in Grand Marais so it was great that the kitchen was open until 10pm! There was... More

We just had soup and sandwich, both of which were very good. I wanted to try the smoked fish wrap but it was already sold out. A note about the service, since several reviewers earlier mentioned it. We were there on the July 4th weekend at lunchtime, when everyone was in town because it was cool and rainy. We waited... More

FYI the bloody Mary is VERY spicy. Excellent beer selection and friendly wait staff. Only place I know that keeps the kitchen open until 10 pm. Good for me fishing late on the Gun Flint.

I loved the butternut squash ravioli and the triple berry tart for dessert was out of this world. It was hopping with 4th of July guests to Grand Marais but they still made room for a guest who was solo.
