Their are a lot of good dining options in grand marais but I finally went to the Crooked Spoon and it is without a doubt my new favorite. Every dish that my group ordered was outstanding and the service was exceptional. Can't wait to visit again.

My husband and I ate at the Crooked Spoon Cafe for his 30th birthday in February and loved it! We had a wonderful dinner with amazing food! My husband got the steak with roasted cauliflower and potatoes and I had the Arctic Char with broccolini and rice. Both were phenomenal - my husband thought it was one of the best... More

We ordered the Chef's menu during Valentines Day weekend. I especially enjoyed the Monkfish. The wine pairing was very tasty, friendly and familiar.

When you walk in its very small and welcoming. A place we frequented when we lived in Mn. And on a family visit were fortunate enough to grab a bite here. We ordered our favorite, French onion soup and the cheeseburger. While I want to give them a 5, I can only give a 4 and concidered a 3. The... More

Living in Cook County year round means limited eating out options. We really appreciate the effort Crooked Spoon puts into their food. It's a cute and cozy atmosphere, the food is always delicious, and the staff are really great people. Definitely in my top two choices of places to eat in town.

The Crooked Spoon usually has a special steak every evening, which I'd recommend. It was cooked wonderfully and the veggies on the side were perfect. The only thing that needed a little help were the potatoes served with it. But overall, it was a good meal.

The food is hearty, in the right proportions. Not cheap eats, but it is Grand Marais where food is always a bit more expensive. But, it is also fresh and flavorful. It's original, to say the least. The cafe is small, so expect a wait if it's busy, but they do a nice job at turning the tables. I don't... More
