Stopped in on a day trip up to Grand Marais. It's off season so it's a little slow but the GFT isn't taking any short cuts. Good was excellent! Can't wait to come back a check out the patio on a warmer day.

The food here is outstanding. If you leave hungry it's your own fault. It's a little remote but worth the drive.

Fabulous dinner and music. We had the fish and tavern mash and it was amazing. Mashed potatoes with a secret. The place was hopping and Taylor took really good care of us. It was a beautiful fall night to be outside. We will be back.

I was staying three days(Fri-Sun) in GM and visited the GFT EVERY night. Nice crowd, good entertainment(bluegrass/rock), vast alcohol selection, and excellent local fish meal(Sunday nite), all at reasonable prices!
