I mainly choose to go here to watch the boats and bridge. The food is good, big portions. Friendly staff. A little slow and a bit spendy, but totally worth it if you can catch a freighter while you are there.

For all our years of going to Duluth, we had never visited Grandma's until recently. We sat up on the outside patio/roof that overlooks the Duluth Lift Bridge. It's a great spot for watching people and the boats. Unfortunately, our food was somewhat lacking. The...More

The main restaurant has a full menu and nice environment for eating. For a more simple menu and a great view the upper level has indoor and outdoor seating. Always good food.

If you are in Duluth for Grandma's Marathon, then of cours you must go to Grandma's. Food was good and there was a wide variety. The waitress was extremely helpful.

Grandma's sits right on Lake Superior next to the famous lift bridge. Enjoy good food and an unforgettable view of the lake and bridge. After lunch you can tour the old ship or get out on the water for a tour from the lake. Can...More

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.
