Ok. Let's be real. You don't go to Sven and Ole's for organic goat cheese pizza with pesto. You go here because the restaurant is just cool. The décor is fun, it is a hang-out for locals and it is basically just a MUST whenever you travel to Grand Marais. They have a nice bar option if you are out on a date as is separates you from the large family groups. It also will help so you don't have to "hover" and wait to find a table in the main part of the restaurant. We enjoy this restaurant every time.

The extra large Meatsa pizza, thick crust, was enough for the 4 of us. Excellent pizza! I only have one knock on this place...it can be very difficult to find a table at times. I hate having to stand like a vulture waiting for a table to clear, and I hate having to feel rushed because there are table vultures standing all around. I guess I should order the pizza to go and eat it by the lake.

Basic family pizza place, with really good thin crust pizza. They have Coke products. Order at the counter and seat yourself. This is not a quiet spot, but perfect after a busy day outside on the North Shore.

Decent pizza, but better is available on the North Shoe without the wait, or the crowds. Even in an area not known for a cheap meal, a $30.00 pizza is a bit much for nothing that special. An area institution for over 30 years but only average in reality. Also must wait in line to order which is not a plus.

I have been to Sven and Ole's several times, it's decent but there are much better pizza places on the North Shore. The wait can be long for a table so time your dinner/lunch appropriately to avoid the rush times. It's reliable in quality so you know what you'll get every time. Just not a place to go out of your way for.
