The pizza was great, but the view out those big windows watching the seagulls was even better! Would have liked to enjoy the outside deck, but the outside temperature that day (in late June) was in the low 60s.

We relaxed on the roof top deck overlooking Lake Superior while enjoying fantastic frozen custard. Great flavor choices. My kids loved their chia tea shakes! Delicious, would go back again for sure.

The custard is good. A great selection but a bit pricey especially for kids. Good service. The young girl helping us was very patient and informative. They also have pizza but we didn't try it.

After a recommendation from a local…we tried the wood fire pizza. It was amazing! Truly some of the best pizza. We sat in the dining area and enjoyed beautiful views of the lake. The custard was dreamy! Great flavor and amazing waffle bowls.

Great food. Great atmosphere. Love the new dining room. Get the pizza and custard. You have a beautiful view of Lake Superior from the dining room. Truly a gem in Grand Marais.

Thin crust with the perfect crunch, their pizzas had SO much flavor. I was satisfied with two pieces—after a full day of hiking and sightseeing. Seriously tasty. The can of Bent Paddle beer made in Duluth also really hit the spot. We sat outside at a table in front on a cool evening and enjoyed the ambiance out there. The... More

The custard alone is worth a stop. Unlike the other ice cream options in Grand Marais, the custard is made here, and it is award winning. The vanilla has flecks of vanilla bean, and tastes like great vanilla flavor should. The scoops are small, but appropriately sized given the homemade effort. The custard goes even better when eaten on the... More

The Margherita Pizza is SOOO good! Simple ingredients come together for pure yumminess! Maybe it's the amazing view of the east bay and artists point and the fresh breeze from the lake that add to its perfection--whatever it is, you should go. And save room for custard, because it's amazing too!

If you're in Grand Marais in the summer, you have to go. Picture a warm night with a light breeze off Lake Superior and after your dinner, you go to Sydney's and get dessert while looking over the lake. Great food, great location!
