Description: Since 1976 Grandma’s Saloon & Grill has been a casual but lively adventure to the past where value and customer service are at the center of everything we do. You’re surrounded by authentic antiques, collectibles, and an eager staff ready and willing to please. The award winning food includes overstuffed sandwiches and burgers; USDA choice steaks; house specialty pasta and wild rice dishes; appetizers include nationally recognized homemade onion rings, chicken wings, and stuffed mushrooms. It’s an eyeful as well as a mouthful. The legacy of customer satisfaction has been handed down by the Italian immigrant who started it all, “Grandma” Rosa Brochi. Everything she did in her early boarding house business included “100% customer satisfaction,” words that we still live by today. Grandma’s Saloon & Grill is real history, real antiques, real service, and really good food! A dining experience of legendary indulgence. The original Grandma’s Saloon & Grill is located at the foot of the historic Aerial Lift Bridge, at the tip of Lake Superior. Seasonal deck dining and the new rooftop lounge includes this spectacular view.

“loved the whitefish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

a house specialty and recommended by our server. it was wonderful as was the wild rice it came on - delicious. if we could have gone back the next day i would have ordered it again.

the onion rings were good too!

and our server - Lori - was the best server we've ever had - anywhere - in all our travels - and that's saying something.

“Bland Food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

Our family decided to try this out based on location and the full parking lot. We waited 15 mins which was expected. The food was very bland and the Wild Mushroom Chicken and Vegetable had lots of veggies, but I could barely find the chicken. My wife had the Oriental Chicken Salad and it was tasteless with bad lettuce. The kids ate from the kid menu, and that too was less then appealing. I would definitely not return considering here is such a wide selection of eateries on the strip.

“Disappointment big time”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

We were so disappointed in the food and service of this restaurant! We had been here several years ago (like maybe 20) and decided to bring our daughter & her family to check it out. It was after 8 pm on a Sunday, so it wasn't busy, but it took forever to get our meals, and when they did, they were cold, so maybe that's why we didn't think they tasted as good as we remember! We had two small children (8 and 6) so would have liked to have been able to eat in a reasonable time frame. When he finally did bring the food, he told my son-in law that his fries were cold, so he would bring out some hot ones when they were done. He never did receive those fries. After we did eat, we took the kids out to look at the high priced candy and toys while the men stayed behind at the table to wait for the bill. We're not cheapskates when traveling and eating out, but this definitely wasn't worth the money. Maybe we needed to come when the restaurant is full, so waitstaff wants us fed & out to get the next group in. Sorry Grandma's, I usually write pretty good reviews, but can't think of anything to say, other than nice atmosphere.

“Surprisingly good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

We had this several years ago and didn't like the food or the atmosphere so when we didn't expect a lot but this time it was really great. I had a wonderful wild rice burger that honestly I have been craving ever since. I loved the sweet potato fries. It wasn't as loud as it was the last time so that was nice and the food was really excellent this time.
