We are from Grand Marais and wanted to have a special celebration. It was definitely very special. The wait staff was very professional in their service all through the evening.

As I walked up to the Harbor House Grill, I heard the sound of beautiful Irish music. The first thing I noticed when entering the House was the beautiful artwork on the walls.

My husband began with a salad and was very happy with... More

We eat here whenever in Grand Marais. The food is always excellent. We have tried several different meals and have always been pleased. It is a small dining area and you are very close to other diners. Reasonably priced meals. Definitely recommend.

This is the best restaurant on north shore, we really like their great food, friendly stuff and wonderful location. I recently brought a friend there, we again had a wonderful experience. The only suggestion we have is maybe they should have some higher end wine selection available considering some visitors may like to have them.

We ordered the wood fired Bleu Fungi pizza and it was amazing. It went perfectly with a wide variety of local beers on tap. The service was friendly and prompt. I would definitely return in the Harbor House Grille.
