The Crooked Spoon- Lunch or dinner, this place is our favorite!

The Dining Room at Lutsen Resort-Fabulous views of Lake Superior with some of the best food on the shore for generations.

Bluefin Bay-Great for lunch or dinner or just to grab some appetizers and drinks while soaking up the beautiful view of the big lake from the bar area.

The Harbor House-While they are newer to Grand Marais, they have served impressive food for years now. A great place for lunch and dinner!

The Angry Trout (summer only)-Some of the best lake views Grand Marais has to offer. Consistently kicking out the best fish sandwich in the land and you can’t pass up the Fritters!

The Gunflint Tavern-A great mix of appetizers, sandwiches, pizzas and entrees, they are a great spot for lunch and dinner alike. They almost always have live music,  and if it’s open you have to grab a drink up in the Raven’s Nest on their rooftop. Amazing view of the bay from above!

Poplar River Pub-Serving up great Pub Food for ages, while also offering up the menu from their more formal dining room if you’d like. Great place for the family or to catch a game on tv while enjoying some great pub grub!

My Sisters Place-An immense selection of burgers and sandwiches while offering great pizza too! The atmosphere is very “rustic” and is a conversation starter in itself. We love My Sisters Place!

Dockside Fish Market (closed Jan 1- spring)- The freshest fish in town! Grab a Walleye Basket and sit back on their deck; you can’t pass up the Dockside if you’re in Grand Marais.

Voyageur Brewing Company- New as of February 2015, they have quickly become the pride and joy of Grand Marais, becoming the first Brewery that will be able to distribute locally produced beer! They have a few small plate selections for food that pairs nicely with their beer and it’s all very tasty.

Sven and Oles- A classic pizza joint. Serving up Za, wings, salads and more, don’t ya know :)

Hughie’s Tacos-Once you walk in to Hughie’s, prepare to be addicted! Their tacos are delicious! 218.387.3382

Trail Center Lodge (Poplar Lake, Gunflint Trail)- The beautiful drive up to Trail center already makes it worth the trip but their food is fabulous too! Breakfast, lunch and dinner, this place is delicious.You’ve got to get a milkshake if you’re there too!
