“Must visit spot in Grand Marais”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014

In my many visits, I've never been disappointed. Lively, loud, and full of character (and characters). Food is very good-- I especially like the vegetarian chili. Good selection of specially beers, including a number brewed in Minnesota. Decent pours on the distilled beverages.

“Good food good beer good music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2014 via mobile

I've had many a dinner here, never disappointed. Walleye dinner is comparable to fine restaurant, walleye sandwich falls off the bun, 3 soups of the day, wonderful pastas, great burger. Their side greens is actually a very nice salad -I recommend their romano dressing. Their bargain is baked ziti and well done. They have a large array of local craft beers. Thursday-Sunday there is live music which is also varied and includes talented locals. Good wine list, homemade desserts. An attached comfy bar separated for those who want to watch a game. This place has a very creative menu. Check out the wall of foreign currency and vintage guinness posters.

“Second times the charm!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

This was my second supper at the Gunflint Tavern. The veggie chili was great and the margarita perfect. It was winter, not summer, and the middle of the week so it was quieter than before. More like a restaurant with a bar attached. I'd go back again.

“Will be brewing soon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2014

The food here was fantastic- great variety of high quality fresh food. Wraps, sandwiches, entrees, familiar and new stuff to try. They were setting up for brewing operations and thought that would be up and running in a month or so. We'll be back. Friendly fast service.
