You can pick any food and in any quantity, so that you are fully satisfied. Or you can send us your menu in advance and we will have it ready for you when you arrive. When you stay with us coming and going you might be interested in having your meals in the lodge dining room. Gunflint Lodge serves breakfast, lunch and dinner in two dining rooms. The Red Paddle Bistro for a cold libation and lighter dinner choices such as huge hamburgers, walleye chowder, deli style sandwiches, and many salad choices.  Breakfasts and lunches are offered from a complete menu and are big and hearty. Justine's Fine Dining offers 6 or more entrees each evening and is presented in a classier way.

Our canoeists have this extra opportunity to treat themselves to something special coming and going which is anique feature at Gunflint and very different from what any other outfitters offer you. It is appropriate to make a dinner reservation if you would like to dine in Justine's. Gunflint Lodge meals are not included in the outfitting rates.
