Love going to Grandma’s Saloon in Duluth. Their chicken tetrazzini and wild rice dishes are legendary - you can’t go wrong with anything here.

We wanted to eat here when in town. Talked to the waitress and the hostess looked at the menu. There was absolutely nothing without gluten and soy. My severe allergies. That just tells me they don't make their own food. Very disappointing.More

Thank you for your comments. We do in fact have a gluten free menu, and can make items that are soy free and gluten free. Our selections are a bit more limited, but we can prepare, chicken, steak, and salmon. We have side salads, fresh...More

You can't visit Canal Park and the lift bridge without stopping at Grandma's for a bite to eat. Comfortable, relaxed, atmosphere were everything on the menu is worth the price.

I had dinner at this restaurant and was not overly impressed. The atmosphere is one of honky-tonk with lit business signs everywhere - on the walls and hanging from the ceiling. The dining tables are within view of the large bar and the whole dining...More

Every time I eat here I think to myself what really happened here? I love all the old artifacts inside the restaurant. Although it was packed we only had to wait about 35 minutes. The service was still good even though it was busy. I...More

Thank you for the nice review! I'm glad you tried, and enjoyed, the Steak Cheese French. It's one of our most popular items, and is currently on special every Wednesday for $9.99. We hope to see you again soon!

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.
