Pizza was ok, being from the South not exactly what I expected, but it could get a do over. The iced tea tasted like it had a raspberry tinge to it. If you want iced tea I would try the Arnold Palmer. There was no shake on cheese and no salt though you could get hot pepper or black pepper.... More

Don't let the name of the establishment fool you - Sydney's is way more than just frozen custard! We stayed literally right across the street from this little gem at Cobblestone Cove, so the convenience was great. Even if we weren't staying near here, this place is right in town and has lots of available (free) parking. We ended up... More

Large choice of frozen custard treats. Didn't try any of the food items, but the sundaes are delicious.

I came for breakfast. I ordered a crepe, which was pretty good. I do hope they upgrade to fresh strawberries, but hey...nutella on a crepe is a lovely thing. Even lovlier is the view. They have a rooftop directly on the shore with panoramic views of the coastline, Artist's Point, and even the lighthouse. There is a variety of fare... More

outside looks like a shack and you have to order food and custard outside, drinks on the inside. Seating is on the beach with view of waters but foggy/misty/cool. Inside fireplace was very nice. Pizza pretty good. Vanilla custard very good.

This was just what we wanted... Good food, great beer, ice cream, and an excellent view. This would be my #1 place to eat when visiting Grand Marais.

Enjoyed a great Chicago dog in northern MN paired with a local crafted beer from voyageur brewing company. You have to love finding small places like this!! The view of the lake is amazing, so close. I need to come back at twilight. If your here on a nice night I recommend trying the roof top dining.

Sydney's makes great custard and has lots of options to embellish if you wish which hits the spot after a day of hiking. If the weather is cold they have added an indoor seating area complete with fireplace and lots of windows so you can enjoy the view in comfort. We love their pizza (especially the apple gorgonzola)!

The wood-fired pizza is truly perfect - highly recommend the apple-gorgonzola! Came back the next day for amazing frozen custard. Very friendly, family-run business with an outstanding view of Lake Superior, large open deck on roof. Not a fancy place - expect paper plates - but can't beat the outstanding food.
