Dine with us

You’ll find all kinds of fantastic places to eat in the four communities of Cook County, Minnesota: Lutsen-Tofte-Schroeder, Grand Marais, the Gunflint Trail, and Grand Portage.

See full list of Cook County dining

Some names may be familiar. Others are diamonds waiting to be discovered.

If you know what you and your crew are up for—whether pizza or fresh fish, burgers or world-famous donuts—you can filter dining establishments by food categories on the Interactive Map.

Or, to whet your appetite and perhaps discover a new place to eat, browse by the type of establishment. Are you in the mood for a café or fine dining? Fast food or a tavern? Somewhere with live entertainment?

Our recommendation: Stay a few more days and try them all.

Nyte måltidet! (That’s “Enjoy your meal” in Norwegian.)
