Our first night in Grand Marais I finally gave in and visited Sven & Ole’s Pizza. That completed my tour of nearly 25 eateries over the past couple of years in town save for the Dairy Queen and Subway.
Sven & Ole’s has an order counter where you take a number and then have your pizza delivered to your table when ready. If you want a beer you have to go up to the mezzanine Pickled Herring Club and get it yourself. The interior is a typical north words motif complete with tin ceiling, old signs, skis, snowshoes, lumberjacking tools and the obligatory deer or moose heads on the walls.
The pizza surprisingly was not that bad. We opted for a generous 12″ size Uffda Zah comprising of the common ingredients of Italian sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, black olives, green peppers and onions.
They had a similar wild rice version, but Nancy talked me out of it. Wild rice pizza would be had later anyway.
Did I say Pickled Herring Club? I guess pickled herring is Scandinavian. [:)] The mezzanine bar is kind of an intimate place to enjoy a beer.
