My friends and I stopped here for lunch on the way home from Canada. The food was fresh to order and it tasted really good. It was fairly expensive for a dairy queen. We sat outside and one of the workers made a fire for us in the raised fire pit which was nice. Overall, it was good!

We stayed 15 minutes outside of Grand Marais, but decided we needed ice cream. DQ was open when we were looking for a treat. The staff was friendly and service was good. They did a great job with the presentation of our Blizzards!

This was a complete letdown. The portions were so small & the prices so expensive, couldn't believe it. Would not recommend this unless you're just going for a cone.

Friendly service and quality food. A regular stop when we pass thru Grand Marais..During our last stop, there were no knives available so the Manager happily came to our table and cut the Chilli Dog in half with one of his kitchen knives.

We stopped in for cheese curds and ice cream and as DQ's do all over, they delivered good examples of both. The counter help was pleasant and I was pleased we'd made the stop.

It's not Haagan Daz or Ben and Jerry's but a WELL RUN DQ that Warren Buffet would be proud of. Good service and a nice new menu of tempting and unhealthy stuff that you expect at a DQ. Only one I've been to in years that still serves three different flavors of the waxy goodness they DIP cones in. Friendly... More

Just what you would expect. Can be busy. Service was quick on our visit. We skip the food - standard fast food menu. Have a blizzard.

We were staying across the street for the night and ate here because we wanted something quick and cheap. The food was hot and typical for DQ. Service was very slow, mainly to place the order but, food did take a while to arrive. Every table was dirty and in need of cleaning. Floor also was dingy and dirty looking.

We attend Fishermans picnic every year and always make this Dairy Queen a regular part of our weekend. They are a great asset to this community. We are always treated so well with happy and great customer service. Food is always fresh and not too expensive. Thumbs up to this Dairy Queen!

Stopped in for a treat. Had coupons for any two blizzards for $8. Great price. Very enjoyable. Hit the spot.
