Great food, not a lot a ambiance... needs music like the bar area. Seems uptight compared to the Red Paddle Bistro, which is more laid back.

Thank you for your comments. Both our dining areas at the Gunflint Lodge share music and the same menu, so I'm sorry if you weren't able to experience that during your visit. We do offer live music on Fridays and Saturdays in the winter, so I hope you'll stop back to enjoy that sometime soon. More

Since we were staying at the Lodge we ate all meals at this restaurant. The evening meals include a variety of specials in many categories and each is well prepared and very, very good but be careful as some things maybe a little spicy for Minnesota tastes. I would recommend fish, beef or any pasta entres.

A nice restaurant with a diverse menu. A lot of food for the money with some excellent local fish items. I love Walleye, so I had almond encrusted broiled Walleye dinner and my wife had the Walleye Wrap appetizer. The service was slow due to staffing issue, but it was worth the wait.

Thank you for your review. We do have a number of excellent ways to serve walleye here. We're sorry that your service was slower than you expected. We have been very busy with fall color visitors and are working to address that issue with our staff. More

It has been 6 years since I last visited Gunflint and I can safely say what was good remained and the added services an enhancement.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry our hand-pattied burgers did not impress you, but our Sunday night barbeque is a summertime favorite here at Gunflint. If you stop by again, I hope you'll try it. An added benefit of eating on our patio overlooking Gunflint Lake is the fabulous lake view and gorgeous sunsets in the evening. More

VERY good service from our waiter. The food came out quickly and was very tasty! The view at the window was beautiful. The BBQ wings were fantastic, the malts very large and yummy and the fish was very good as well.

We were there on Sunday night, and had the BBQ buffet. It was excellent. Our wait staff was superb, John and Jodi (our wait staff) are all about service, never a dirty plate or a half full drink. They are also fun to talk to, and make you feel welcome.

Took a trip up the Gunflint trail and had lunch at gunflint lodge. Service was friendly, had a wild rice soup with club sandwhich which was good although somewhat spendy in my opinion. However only so many options this far up the trail.

We ate here our first night at the Lodge because after unpacking and wandering the grounds for a bit we wanted to relax and have a good hot meal.
