We apologize for your negative experience. Your review is in stark contrast to the vast majority of our other 243 reviews. You are right, our restaurant is located on Highway 61. The view is not of the lake, but the good news is we have a large parking lot for all of our customers and provide parking for everyone pulling... More

I met friends here for dinner and we all had a great meal. The waitress was friendly, helpful and patient while we waited on one who was tardy. It is definitely worth a stop here!

I ate here several times this visit. Service was good. I ordered a BLT once, a salad a soup, it was chicken noodle and it was delicious. And I also had a burger. Prices are good, and the food was good too.

This is a cute little restaurant that we had never visited before because we thought it was just a bar. We saw the menu for it in our hotel room and decided to give it a try. The food was great! They have an awesome assortment of burgers and hot dogs with more toppings available to try than you can... More

We went here for dinner on a Monday evening. The restaurant was moderately crowded. They had a great variety of locally brewed craft beers. I have to say this was my favorite restaurant that we ate at while in Grand Marais. Besides a good selection of beer, the food was moderately priced and my family enjoyed their selections for dinner.... More

Good food, good selection of beers, good staff. We ate here twice on our last visit to Grand Marais. The second time I had a bleu cheese burger (my favorite), to which I was able to add a generous topping of grilled onions. Made it perfect! Staff friendly & accommodating. I'd eat here again.

Seems like a fun place to hang out and have a beer. Only serve beer or wine, I'm a mixed drink kinda person so that was a let down. Food was good. We went around 4:30, only one other table so it was very empty.

This restaurant still gets about the same rating as it did the last time we visited it four years ago. This time we were right in the Grand Marais seasonal transition the last full weekend in October, so some of the local restaurants were already closed, and consequently My Sister's Place was packed and we had about a 10 minute...
