My son and I both had the Cuban sandwich for lunch and enjoyed ourselves and the atmosphere. They were super busy, but got us lunch pretty quick. Nice place, but pricey and worth it!

Really sub par. An over $20 12 inch sausage pizza that couldn't have been more than $3 to make. All our other entrees were just ok. Server was scattered and struggled all experience. Give this a pass.

They have upped their game at the Gunflint Tavern! They have enclosed part of their rooftop, (The Raven), & have their live music up there. Very neat vibe going on up there. You can eat downstairs, & see your live music upstairs. Definitely, stop in,...More

we stopped in mid afternoon for an appetizer and a beer. We got the baked Brie and a baked chicken wing platter. Both were excellent and beautifully presented.

We love the atmosphere as well as the menu and drink selections at the Gunflint Tavern. Can't beat the beautiful view of the harbor. Outdoor seating on the rooftop patio is great!
