During a recent stay in Duluth, I went to dinner at Grandma's Saloon & Grill for dinner and it was a great experience! I was by myself, which can sometimes be awkward, but the staff made me feel very comfortable. I had a cheeseburger and...More

Great restaurant for families. There is a small arcade to keep the kids entertained while waiting for a table. The food was excellent with a great selection. The adult beverage selection was also good.

One of my favorite places to eat in Duluth! I've never ordered something I didn't like. The service is always good and the portions are very big.

We always stop here when we come “up north” the food is wonderful, the staff is always very friendly, and try to sit upstairs for the wonderful view of the canal.

Since 1976 Grandma’s Saloon & Grill has been a casual but lively adventure to the past where value and customer service are at the center of everything we do. You’re surrounded by authentic antiques, collectibles, and an eager staff ready and willing to please. The award winning food includes overstuffed sandwiches and burgers; USDA choice steaks; house specialty pasta and wild rice dishes; appetizers include nationally recognized homemade onion rings, chicken wings, and stuffed mushrooms. It’s an eyeful as well as a mouthful. The legacy of customer satisfaction has been handed down by the Italian immigrant who started it all, “Grandma” Rosa Brochi. Everything she did in her early boarding house business included “100% customer satisfaction,” words that we still live by today. Grandma’s Saloon & Grill is real history, real antiques, real service, and really good food! A dining experience of legendary indulgence. The original Grandma’s Saloon & Grill is located at the foot of the historic Aerial Lift Bridge, at the tip of Lake Superior. Seasonal deck dining and the new rooftop lounge includes this spectacular view.
