Trail Center is an absolute staple of the Gunflint, a must go for at least one of your meals if not more while you're on the... Trail. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all great, the up-north atmosphere is top of the line, and don't forget to buy a couplebags of Camp Chow for your next trip into the BWCA. Nothing I can say that hasn't already been said, check it out! Read more

Food and service are always great. We usually make it up once a year and have always had great food. Love their burgers but... had steak special this time and was the best Ribeye I have ever had. Also if you get a chance to eat there always do a maltalso!!! Read more

I and a friend stayed in cabin 1 in July, and I and my wife stayed in cabin 2 in august. If I had it to do over again, I would... in a flash! Our camping group has been stopping there for years and will continue to do so. What a great place to visit andstay. The rooms were excellent and were well kept and CLEAN. I feel bad that I found the visitors journal on our last day justbefore we left. Seek it out and leave a note, they are interesting to read. As a final note, if you are taller than 5' 6" becareful of the doorway in cabin 1(Har Har). See attached picture, I'm 6'4". Thank you again... Read more

If we are at Grand Marais, we always make it a point to visit this Trail Center Restaurant. Reason: Simple, flavorful meals for... vegetarians and meatatarians and alike. Kids love it and so do the adults. I especially love their Veg Black Bean burger. It iscooked to perfection - not like the burnt black burgers they serve in the name of veg burgers. Not the horrendous and tasteless Impossible patty. Flavorful, perfectly seasoned burger! And as a vegetarian, trust me - it is such a welcome break to finallyget a decent burger that you relish with every bite! Kudos to the chef for serving yummylicious food. Their Parmesan Pasta is adelight too! This place is welcoming to one and all! If you are in and around Grand Marais, be sure to dine in here! Read more

A friend recommended we stop here during our BWCAW trip and we were so impressed. We went twice and enjoyed delicious fish fry,... burgers, malts, beer, home cooked meals. They also have the low staffing issue well organized and many restaurants can learnfrom them! We enjoyed the gift shop very much and got some tasty dried meals for our next wilderness trip in 2023. Keep up thegreat work. Cannot wait to return. Read more
