Best pizza in GM, hands down. Best chicago dog in MN. Frozen. Custard. So. Delicious.

I grew up in Grand Marais and have lived there off & on throughout my 20s. This is one of the best restaurants in the area. It's got an amazing location right on Lake Superior with a beach-front location, it's owned by a local family, the food is awesome (seriously, I'm so sad a Sydney's chicago... read more

Unassuming from the outside, but THE BEST PIZZA around!! I had the Mediterranean and it was amazing! The custard is smooth and creamy and they have live music on the weekends as well. Get there early if you want to eat inside as seating is limited and it fills up quickly. A wonderful casual place for some great food!

We just stopped for some frozen custard. They also had wood fire pizzas, bummer we had just had dinner. It smelled so good. The view of Lake Superior was great. Loved my custard treat!

Sydney's is just the best custard anywhere, and I really like custard. I first found Sydney's ten years ago, and rarely do I go through Grand Marais without stopping. The custard is delicious and they will serve it any of dozens of ways. Note that it is three seasons with no indoor seating. Check for hours in early spring and... More

On a cool rainy day, we stopped in for a quick lunch. The food offerings are limited but what they choose to do, fortunately they do well. My wife and I enjoyed our fast food offerings and we will be back again.

Great food, great views! Chicken Cesar pita is so yummy! Roof top views are the best especially when there's live music. Always very friendly service!

The custard here is better then anywhere else I have ever had it. We tried a spoonful and the had it made into a shake. I wish I would just have had a dish of it all by itself because it was so smooth. This is a stop you need to make.

No matter where my wife and I eat in Grand Marais, we always go to Sydney's for Dessert, the frozen yogurt is pretty dang good. They have an outdoor 2nd level deck that has a nice view, and there's always a fire going inside when it's cooler outside. They have a nice little business going and I like to support... More

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
