For me this is a must-stop when in Duluth. Every time I've been here the food had been good even though when they are busy the service can be slow. Interesting decor in the place that would best be described as 'abandoned junk'. Food is standard fare for a touist trap. According to legend the building was once a whorehouse.

I would send tourists here because it's been made famous by the marathon, but if I lived in Duluth or visited on a regular basis like my family does, it's not worth the hype. The food is good, but nothing to write home about.

Grandma's- and every other store in the Grandma's chain I've tried - Little Angie's, G's Sports Bar, American Grill or whatever it is by the mall, Grandma's West Duluth Cafe, and others- is overpriced tourist food. If you are a tourist coming to Duluth and want to sample what the locals have to offer, avoid Grandma's. I haven't tried Belisio's yet, however, and reserve judgement- I'm certainly willing to try it.

I've been to the other Grandma's places a few times each and have been always disapointed. Usually what happens is that some relative of mine is visiting, and they want to go to Grandma's. I tried it at first, and some of the other parts of the Grandma's Empire, not knowing what else they owned. My experience has been the same all around- overpriced items (big portions, though) and very bland food. Nothing unique or tasty on the menu. Even Perkin's tries harder it seems.

They have cheap beer for the college kids too, which keeps at least a certain section of those living in Duluth showing up when the tourists are gone.

Just about anything is better than Grandma's. Seriously. Even Perkins.

PROS: Cheap beer, omnipresent
CONS: All around suckiness

This place I have to say is fun. I recommend going at least once!! Yes its busy and the seating time is always a wait.. But The Scooner Sundaes are huge and delicious the food is pretty good, mostly average depending on what you order! But I think its the atmosphere that attracts people.. Its by the pier and its always fun there!! Yes sometimes you dont always get the best service from your waiter. It really depends on their mood! sometimes you can get the funnest one! So at least go and try it! I always go back when Im in Duluth!

Pros: Good Desserts, Good Food, Good Beer/Drinks

Cons: Busy, Long Wait

Grandmas is an average bar with average everything. It is like a big warehouse with some logs. I truly don't get why this is the place to go in duluth. I do admit their beer specials are fantastic.

PROS: great prices
CONS: mediocre bar

I'm not sure why this place is such an attraction. The food is average at best. The burgers are greasy, the steak gristly, and everything is expensive. I guess if you really need to stop in and check the place out, just sit at the bar and have a couple of drinks. Try the Lake Superior brand beers that they usually have. Kids might like looking at all the decor on the walls, but every restaurant has junk on the walls now.

When living in Duluth, or just visiting Grandma's Saloon and Grill is a must stop. The decor is wonderful and the service is top notch. You can fill your stomach with anything from burgers to pastas. For a burger, try the Bicycle burger, or for the spicier fare enjoy the cajun chicken fettucini. You can also enjoy any drink you can think of. For appetizers try the stuffed mushrooms or the wing ring combo.

5 of us went here to eat one weekday for lunch, 3 adults, 2 children. The waitress was t obusy with other tables to realize we were even there to take a drink order for about 10-15 mins. After we finally got our drinks and were ready to order we did...the food came 45 minutes later, some of the food was cold, some was over-cooked and one meal was not right at all. The waitress did not return for another 20 mins and then wanted to know if we wanted new meals....which we didnt, we were there for lunch not dinner. She then TOOK the wrong meal, w/o offering something different or such and the ONLY thing they did was take the meal off the bill.
Will not go there AGAIN!

Cons: No enough waitstaff, No special service, Not enough space

Don't get me wrong, food is good, service is good as well, but there is nothing special about this place what-so-ever... But to call it romantic! Huh? I don't see that at all... Next time I go to Duluth I will probably skip this place and treat it more like the bar that it is and go someplace else for lunch or dinner. I know Duluth is known for it's Grandma's restaurants, but it's nothing more than a TGI Friday's or Applebee's type restaurant.

The environment of Grandma's make you feel at home, while have a fun feeling. The wait staff are friendly and poliet. The food is so wonderful, you don't want to waste any of it, yet the portions are LARGE!!!! Recommend the pizza, salad, and all desserts!!!
