The Gun Flint Tavern

Craving a place they could enjoy a craft-brewed beer, nice glass of wine, organic food and live music year-round, Jeff and Susan Gecas opened The Gun Flint Tavern on May 22, 1998 in the old Grand Marais State Bank building. The Raven Pub, featuring fine spirits in an old maritime-themed atmosphere opened May 2004 and The Ravens Nest, our roof top deck and full-service bar with the best view in town, opened in the spring of 2005 . We are located in Beautiful Downtown Grand Marais across from Harbor Park, with a fantastic unobstructed view of our harbor. Next door to the Tavern is the Johnson Heritage Post, sight of the old trading post that supplied the trappers , miners and explorers heading North on the old wagon road that would later be known as the Gun Flint Trail. Most likely many ventures inland started and ended on the very site of the Tavern, with a toast to health and good fortune. Stop in, we are sure you will enjoy our view, food, drinks, entertainment and our friendly, 'make you feel welcome' staff.

- Sincerely, Jeff and Susan Gecas

About logo

Our logo was designed to speak about humans as to where we are in our story. These symbols belong to all cultures.

The figure is making an offering of food and drink. The spiral is the eternal sign of life, the sun and "G" for Gun Flint Tavern. The triangle is the eye of God looking down on us and us looking back. The arrow is to remind us to keep moving, to not stand still, to be creative. And finally the hand, our signature in time as we have always done it, saying the we are here.
