“Do not miss!! AMAZING!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2008

We visit Grand Marais every summer for the fireworks and have been unimpressed with the food so far. We stopped in here for a lunch expecting traditional American fare. What a surprise! The food was inventive and absolutely amazing (we had chipolte pepper fries with blue cheese - an unlikely pairing, but the combination tempered the fiery chipolte while adding a cool zing to the appetizer), the atmosphere was cozy and inviting (a renovated post office on main street), and the service was warm and personal (we were sopping wet from being caught in a sudden rainstorm and they brought us towels to dry off!). We will make this our main restaurant during our visits.

“Expectations far exceeded!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2007

My wife and I enjoyed two incredible dinners this past week at the Crooked Spoon. I am a Flat Iron steak fan and this presentation was by far the best I have ever had. My wife enjoyed the pork loin with a special and awesome sweet potato combination. We came back for scallops and meat loaf which were both excellent. And don't even get me started about the appetizers, soup and desserts! The atmostphere is perfect for this little get-a-way town and the service was first class. The combination of our stay at the East Bay Suites and the Crooked Spoon made this a perfect time for the two of us.

“intimate restaurant with creative food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2007

This restaurant on main street only holds about 8 tables in a cozy little space. My husband and I had the fresh lake trout with lemon aioli and Minnesota wild rice and we both agreed it was the best fish dinner we have ever had! Somtimes they have local muscians come in to play during dinner.
