Took my wife and kids out for some frozen custard at Sydney's the other night. We are local and don't eat out much, but we enjoy the occasional night out. For visitors, and even for those that have been here before, here are some things to know: - They have totally remodeled the place. They have a great upstairs roof... More

This place is well worth a stop when you're in Grand Marais. The staff are very friendly, and the cook actually brought our food out to our table. He had flour on his face from making the pizza crust. The food is great, and you can also sit on the upper deck and get a great view of the lake.... More

We have been to Sydney's many times. It is a favorite destination for ice cream for our family. This year we stopped on a cold day (you see we are diehards) for ice cream. Sydney's has the advantage of overlooking both Grand Marais harbor on one side and Superior on the other. Out front there are tables with a fireplace... More

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
