Just two blocks from the Rainy River and the Canadian border at Fort Frances, Border Bar Pizza is a favorite of Canadians, Americans, and hunters and fishers from all over the world.  Many international travelers make a stop at Border Bar Pizza after landing at International Falls airport and before making their way to Voyageurs National Park or far-flung destinations across North America.


Along with the fun of playing lottery games, people come to Border Bar Pizza to dance to a live band on Sunday evenings.

People also come for the food. The bar and restaurant are separate and of equal size, and the restaurant is family friendly. Favorite menu items include the hand formed one-pound burgers and of course the thin-crust pizza that is made fresh daily.

Canadians have truly been missed since the pandemic border closing, not only at Border Bar Pizza but throughout northern Minnesota. Canadian dollars are always accepted at Border Bar Pizza, and on Sunday evenings they are at par—over twenty percent savings for our friends across the border.


Next time you’re way up north, stop by Border Bar Pizza for lottery and great food. The friendly staff will welcome you no matter where you’re from.
