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.

As a budget-minded traveler, I was dumbstruck at the cost of the groceries in this small isolated town. With this in mind, it made our evening out easier to swallow. We chose Sydney's based upon the other positive reviews. It was a good choice. The restaurant was busy, which we didn't mind. If anything, it confirms that the restaurant served... More

It was a hot day when we ordered waffle cones so it got a little messy! Despite the custard dripping down our hands it was the best I gave ever tasted. We didn't have food but what we saw others ordering looked very interesting.

The unassuming appearance of this place might make you think twice. Don't bother thinking... just stop in and enjoy. I've had pizzas, gyros, hot dogs, and custard. All are well worth the stop. The value here is great, the rooftop dining view is outstanding, and the street side seating is great for people watching.

We came back three times to this place. It is right on the beach and has the best people-watching view! We had the hummus, which was awesome. The beer selection is great- had Bent Paddle which you can only enjoy in No. Minn. Wine selection also very good. You can sit on the rooftop and enjoy the view. We had... More

Very good pizza...great selection, or custom make your own. Quickly made too, not much of a wait. Steps from downtown and a fun place to people watch with everyone walking around in the evenings. Highly recommended.

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
