Hadn’t been to grandmas in years, so thought we’d check it out. Kids meals were $7, and my kids ordered spaghetti. Server asked if they wanted meat, and they said yes. Didn’t mention it was a $4 add on, and we ended up paying $22...More

This is my favorite place in Duluth. Consistently delicious. We always stop when visiting Duluth or passing through. Enjoyable tap selection as well.

This review is unneeded, if you visit Duluth, you NEED to stop here for lunch during the summer for sure and dinner anytime. The food is good and the atmosphere is fabulous!

Nice attmosphere, plenty of seating, large size portions of food but a little spendy. Can easily share some of the sanwich's and not go away hungry. They have a great location in Canal Park

After touring Bentleyville we ended at Grandma's for Supper. We went to the 'bar area' upstairs with seating in the back. It was great! We had great service, good food and no wait!

Description
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.
