restaurants on the gunflint trail scenic byway

This 57-mile Scenic Byway is the perfect day trip. Head north into the woods for scenery, perhaps a hike, a swim, some berry picking and a delicious meal. Restaurants on the Gunflint Trail include lodge dining rooms, resort restaurants, a small seasonal cafe and a popular mid-trail stop.

Dining on Minnesota’s Gunflint Trail is filled with its share of s’mores and shore lunches, to be sure. But come dinner time, we lay out our finest in four courses, each with regionally grown, naturally raised, wild caught ingredients. Or join us for simpler lodge fare: family-friendly pasta night;  hot soup or chili to warm a cool afternoon;  a steaming mug of rich hot chocolate with maple cookies; or a simple glass of wine or beer by the fieplace. Fine Dining available on select nights during winter and summer seasons.

Panoramic view of Gunflint Lake with some amazing sights and glorious sunsets. In the winter, deer gather at the feeder outside the dining room windows to graze on the food that we put out for them. We serve hearty Northwoods fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We make extensive use of native ingredients, including wild berries, maple syrup, wild rice, and mushrooms. Small bar and patio seating, too!
