MOre than custard

Wood fired pizza has been added to the menu and much nicer seating has been added to the restaurant. Continues to get better every year.

After being disappointed by Sven & Ole's, we went here. Had delicious pizza delivered to the rooftop patio where the dogs were welcome. This is an amazing patio with a gorgeous lake view. We could have just sat up there the whole afternoon. The custard tasted like a luxurious treat. Strongly recommend this place.

Sydney's serves a pretty good wood fire pizza. No delivery, but the take out window works great 😊 It was pretty busy the night we ordered but definitely worth the wait. Thinner crust, very cheesy. The sauce is great!!

Never would have found Sydney's, but luckily some friends steered us here. Had a really delicious wood-fired margherita pizza here.

Bought a bunch to top pies. It was ok. A little light and icy to my taste buds. I have had better! Even store bought ice cream is better.

Well run, but laid back establishment right on the beach. Very good Chicago-style hot dog. Combination of small town atmosphere combined with quality food and fair prices.

We only had the chance to try the custard, but hey, that's what it's named for, right? In any case, for being standard chocolate and vanilla, it was outstanding and completely worth it! Yum!

Have been here several times, always sit up on the patio for the beautiful view of Lake Superior! Best pizza in town too! Everything we have tried here has been excellent, would definitely recommend!

Great place to dine on the water! We went once for food and another time just for ice cream. Both times we sat upstairs on the patio to enjoy the view! The custard is wonderful, as is the food. The gyro was one of the best I have ever had! We also enjoyed their chicago dog!
