We vacation in Grand Marais every year (more than fifteen years now) for a wonderful week. Sven and Ole's Pizza is always a "must stop" on our agenda. Their pizza is some of the very best we have ever enjoyed. Give yourself a real treat. Try it. The prices are right also..

This place has so many reviews about how good this place is. Are you serious?? When we first walked into this place there were more fly's than people in there. The health inspector should be called to do a visit here. I have never seen such a dirty filthy restaurant in my life. Can you imagine how many fly's land... More

A fun place to eat, or to carry out from. Love the Chicken and Wild Rice Pizza, and also the Ham and Wild Rice. Very casual and laid back. A great place to have some pizza and watch a ball game. Also a nice selection of beers from the Pickled Herring Pub.

Expecting Sven or Ole but just old. Bar area closed for season. Thin crust pizza - not really but decent. No frills here

Sven and Ole's is a staple when you arrive in Grand Marais. The restaurant moved from it's original spot a few years back. The current spot is not as exciting. If you enjoy a hectic atmosphere, lots of kids running around, average pizza and an overused bumper sticker then Sven and Ole's Pizza is the place for you!

We have a late schedule. We don't think about dinner until 9 p.m. but the town closes down at 8pm. Our hotel clerk said this was the only place that delivered. We just had pizza and a salad but we ate every crumb, and wanted more. I loved staying in and getting pizza, but I'd go out for this one... More

We wanted to eat and hit the road- ordered a hoagie to go and took over 30 minutes - at least- It was however, delicious! We ate in the car and we're glad we tried this historic place- advice to plan ahead and take a long walk

Always great pizza. Don't know what they do, but it's the best regular we have had anywhere. We got into town late afternoon on Labor Day and the town was deserted as all the visitors had gone home. Walking around we found where the people in town were, at Sven and Ole's. Don't miss this place

This is a landmark, must-visit in Grand Marais. Everyone you'll ever meet who's been to Grand Marais will ask if you've been to Sven & Ole's Pizza. You need to be able to say Yes!! Go, it's fun and good food.
