As a trucker I’ve been to a lot of places for a good steak. I’ve had great steaks from many places. But, at Trapper Pete’s Steakhouse I’ve just had the “BEST” steaks I’ve ever had in the 10 years over the road and without a doubt in my entire life! No steak sauce needed. My steak was done with perfection, It was so evenly cooked it was even medium rare on the edges too. The steak took my breath away when it just melted in my mouth. I will be back with friends, family, and will recommend this place to everyone that I know. I will tell everyone about this place and the experience I just had.

Their Western Burger is the best! I would recommend it to anybody. We had 3 young kids with and they found us a spot right next to the 'kids corner.' Good thinking and great service!

Very kind and attentive waitress! We stopped in for lunch. Large portions and very tasty! Would definitely suggest to all in the area to stop in and enjoy. :) love the Asian Salad!

Just had another great dinner on the deck. The server was friendly and attentive and the drinks were cold. Had the Steakhouse Pizza.

The Hamtastic breakfast is outstanding! Very Friendly staff. Have also had the Chicken Bacon Ranch pizza which is very good.

I've been to Trapper Pete's quite often lately - they have DELICIOUS pizza. I got a tall cider beer and they put cinnamon and sugar on the rim of the glass - it was a nice touch that I haven't seen anywhere else. Also, their Trapper Salad is to DIE for. I always have a hard time buying salads when eating out - but this one is TOTALLY worth it.

This has been my family's "Go To" spot for sometime. Whenever we want an awesome burger or just to enjoy some wings on Wing Wednesday, this is where to go. Always hard to choose between the Western and Con Spinaci burgers, both are excellent!!
-Paul J.

Food is very good and mostly all dishes are made from scratch which is a bonus. Great specialty cocktails too.
-Dakota K.

Lots to choose from and always something new! I love the BLT and the salads are great. I've also tried the pizza and wings... yum!

I tend to go to Trapper Pete's once every other month for one of their menu items and I've never been disappointed by the food's taste or quality. They have a unique steakhouse menu and a great atmosphere. Although there's not a bad seat in the house, I tend to like to sit near the fireplace in the bar because I like the view of all the different hung items around the room. And as far as the foods concerned, they have a great variety of steaks, pasta and salads. They even have a pizza that tastes great. Overall, this is the type of place I would take friends or family to for special occasions.

 Excellent food. Good place to stop for great homemade pizza. The burgers are excellent also.
-Joe B.

They have a very fun game room, nice bar area, and cozy, comfortable dining areas. The food is great, and it's run by great people. Definitely recommended for a fun night out if you're in the area!

Well, some time this summer I registered for a thing through Miller High Life at my favorite restaurant, Trapper Pete’s Steakhouse in Cloquet, then I get a call from this person about a month ago saying I won a prize that I had to fill out a legal document about it. I do all that and then tonight I got a call and email from Miller saying my prize is in St. Paul. The prize I won is a brand new Harley Davidson Street Bob!!!

For some of the best food in the Cloquet/Duluth area you have to stop at Trapper Pete's Steakhouse in Scanlon, MN. Trapper Pete's is a nice casual atmosphere with a beautiful Northwood's decor. The staff is friendly, takes the time to get to know their customer's personally and greets them by name at the door. The portions are large and tasty. My family is making its way through the menu, but we especially enjoy the Philly, the Trapper Wrap, the shrimp, the chicken strips and of course the kids grilled cheese. For variety ask for all of their sauces. They will deliver with a smile! The best bartenders and margarita's in town.

My new guilt pleasure is the chicken wild rice pizza!!! It tastes even better warmed up the next day...

Had a great Date Night with my wife in Saturday. Despite the late hour we had great service, tasty eats, and smooth drinks. A rustic diamond in the rough, it was a great place to get out for an evening.

Great service tonight! I am so happy to have a place in town to sit and eat outside on a deck and have drinks. Pulled pork sandwich was good, and the penne rosa was delightful. Prices are very affordable!
