Love the new enclosed addition looking out over Lake Superior - view is grand. The custard is delicious. There are a variety of choices in flavorful creations, I simply find vanilla to be my favorite. Simple and really good flavor and texture. It's a winner. Not a place you would necessarily find just driving through the small town (proper) of... More

This was probably our own fault for being tired, but waited on the rooftop for a server that was never coming because you have to order at the window. BBQ chicken pizza was great and staff was accommodating to our switch out of basil instead of cilantro. Simple, casual, great views and wonderful pizza.

Try the stealth. It was amazing. I've eaten a lot of custard in my life, this place is easily in the top 5. The view from the roof certainly doesn't take away from the experience.

I don't know where they get it but the custard is wonderful. I don't even recommend getting their great toppings. Just get the custard and sit quietly and enjoy every bite. Oh, that's right - they have very good Naples style pizza baked in a homemade wood oven. Had the gyros too which were also very good. By the way,... More

The Pizza served up at Sydney's was adequate. The best part of the meal was sitting atop the restaurant while watching the sail boats pass by.

My wife and I rested our feet at Sydney’s Frozen Custard and Wood-Fired Pizza after walking the Artist’s Point in Grand Marais, Minnesota while on a quick vacation getaway on the North Shore of Lake Superior, August 22nd, 2014. I’m actually enrolled in a 12-point program to free myself from my Culver’s fruity custard addiction, but the sessions aren't working.... More

We visit The North Shore annually with out next trip happening next week. This custard place should be the #1 restaurant in Grand Marais and #1 custard place in the state. The custard is fabulous and the location is dynamite. You can enjoy custard on the beach or the rooftop of the shop. AMAZING!

We ate frozen custard every night of our stay in Grand Marais. Dutch chocolate with caramel sauce is quite good! I highly recommend it!

Whenever we are in Grand Marais we stop here for their frozen custard. We had the turtle and we were not disappointed. Custard was awesome. We'll be back!

Went for the custard which was awesome and were pleasantly surprised by the pizza! Great flavor options for the pizza and it was fresh and hot. The food and custard were great, but the best part is the roof top right on the beach! Great views and a wonderful place to relax.
