My husband and I stopped at Sven and Ole's Pizza for dinner, during our visit to Grand Marais. The service was pretty good, but the pizza was awesome! We did wait like 45 minutes for just pizza, when it wasn't very busy, but I have a feeling our waitress might have just forgotten to punch it in right away. (She... More

You can't go to Grand Marais without a stop here - so cute and such a tradition for so many years. This time it was very hot inside and very busy - seemed like they were short staffed - had to wash the table myself. The food was decent. Fun for the kids!

We tried Sven and Ole's on a Tuesday night. The place was crowded but we were able to sit down right away. We loved the pizza and my daughter loved her pasta.

Great pizza and relaxed atmosphere. It is a fun place to hangout and enjoy Grand Marie. It was our first stop.

There are so many good places to eat at along MN north shore, so we always need to stay at least a couple of days so we can try them because one dinner always has to be Sven and Ole's. We are fans of the Uffdahza. The place can be busy at dinnertime, especially on weekends in the summer so... More

This place was far too busy for the quality of food. The service was terrible. The pizza was just okay.

Food: good. Service: poor. We came here on a recommendation from a friend. She specifically said we should try the Chicken and Wild Rice pizza. We did. We will say thanks next time we see her. It was wonderful, and so very Minnesotan. I can best describe the ambiance as North Shore Tacky. It wants to be antique-y and quaint... More

A satisfying post BWCA trip - chewy thin crust - also offer thicker - nicely seasoned sauce. Perfect cheese ratio - had 2 large pizzas - one pepperoni and a cheese. Priced fair Order at counter then grab a seat in oddly yet interestingly decorated eating area. Fun to see multi generations of families enjoying a meal together.

Very popular restaurant. You place your order at the counter and then find seating. We ordered our pizza for carry- out and it was a 30 - 40 minute wait on a Saturday night at prime dinner time. We had a large Italian sausage pizza that easily served 4 people. Adding extra toppings can be pricey - they charge $3.50... More

The place was packed and a good reason why, good pizza! Beer was cold too. Not the only pizza in town and business was brisk. Had to wait a bit but it was worth it.
