When people talk about Gunflint, great food quickly becomes part of the conversation. We have been serving fine Northwood’s cuisine for more than 80 years. The dining rooms are located inside the main Lodge with a lakeside patio, and feature a panoramic view of Gunflint Lake with some amazing sights and glorious sunsets. Named by the Star Tribune as one of the 10 Most Romantic Restaurants Within a Short Drive from the Twin Cities, Justine’s serves hearty Northwoods fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We make extensive use of native ingredients, including walleye, wild berries, maple syrup, wild rice, and mushrooms.

    We love Gunflint Lodge! Wavered a bit with new ownership, but things seem to be settling into their own now. Service and food drastically impoved this last visit. We hope things continue to improve. Gunflint Trail needs a nice place where you can get a nicer meal. Keep filling that need!

    I appreciated the vegetarian options. There was a number of them I wanted to try. I had the vegan chili was very tasty. My daughter like her chicken fajita. It had lots of choices to put in the fajita. The service was fast and polite. We will definitely go there again.

    The Gunflint BBQ on Sundays is actually a buffet. (The online menu does not mention this). The smoked salmon was ok, and the BBQ chicken was poor and the smoked ribs were dry, way under cooked and incredibly tough. We couldn't even cut meat off them with knife and fork. We were very disappointed, paid our bill and left. Save 35 bucks each and skip this entree.

    Soup was tasty but not even close to hot. Asparagus was way overcooked. Drink was tiny, not very tasty and way too expensive. The old fashioned tasted like it came out of a premix and cost the same as a good premium drink in another bar. The prime rib, salad were good as was the potato. Overall, I expected way better.

    We love the charming lodge dining with comfortable high back wood chairs chairs and solid wood tables. Greeted by friendly servers who place outstanding food planned and prepared before you. Three of my families favorites were the beer battered walleye, the smoked salmon wrap and the prime rib with burgundy mushrooms.

    We had a blissful experience on the deck eating beer-battered walleye of the day and potato skins with cheese, washed down with well-made cocktails, all while looking out at the beautiful-beyond-words lake.

    Very good food and service. Staff was friendly and helpful. The walleye was delicious. The view of the lake was great. The only negative was too many flies in the restaurant. I know it’s a difficult this time of year but it does take away from the overall experience. Would still highly recommend.

    We made our reservation for a standard table at 6. We arrived early & stated so & we were happy to wait until our reservation for a table. The gal rushed around to seat us & insisted we take a tall table. We refused and she got very insulting! She then gave us the brand new waiter & seated us right in front of the bar. We were surrounded by her tables, very interesting! Our waiter was very new but he did do his best. The food was excellent and after a rough start we enjoyed a very nice dinner.

    The walleye with blueberry sauce was very good but the rest of the menu items were mediocre at best. The wine list looked good but they were out of more than half the selections. Good service with a nice view.

    Waited 10 minutes to be seated in a largely empty dinning room. The waiter said to help ourselves, but there were no plates. I mentioned that the hash browns server was empty and got a short lecture from the cook saying that hash browns take at least an hour to cook and it would be some time before we saw any. They actually came out in about 10 minutes. The food was good, particularly the French toast. I was offered a coffee refill only once during the 45 minute stay.

    Hot, Hot, Hot. Decided to dine inside to avoid bugs and we cooked. Sat by a window and the sun was on us. Room was nearly full so we did not request another table but we also thought the place was air conditioned. It did not seem so after about 30 minutes and we were sweating. Had the BBQ buffet and it was mediocre. Ribs & Chicken were good but the salmon was WAY over cooked. Did tell the chef who apologized. Coleslaw had good flavor but was dripping with sauce. Fruit was watermelon with some blueberries. No plates when we walked up and later on ran out of silverware. Service was as good as to be expected as the place seemed either understaffed or in confusion. I'm going with understaffed. Will probably not return as it's about 550 miles from our house. When my wife left because she was heat sick and was until the next day. A disappointing end to our vacation.
