Great basic burger, hot dog joint - can't stop looking around the place!

Any kind of hot dog you could possibly want is at My Sister's Place. The restaurant is filled with all kinds of Northwoods paraphenalia - Beargrease aprons, animal hides, bar chairs covered in bumperstickers to read to your hearts content, etc etc. I think I see something different everytime I go... read more

If you are looking for five-star dining and linen tablecloths, this is not the place. If you are looking for a casual atmosphere and good (not great) food, then try My Sister’s Place. The rough-hewn wood paneling in My Sister’s Place is adorned with old license plates and other paraphernalia—yes, it’s that kind of place. The menu includes soups, salads,... More

I was looking forward to enjoying a great burger as the reviews were very good. This has to be the worst burger I have ever had - it was dry and overcooked. I had the patty melt the bread was a hamburger bun turned over so the top was facing the burger and was and the burger was tasteless. The... More

The food is fantastic! Their menu has all the classics and some unique options as well! (Peanut butter on a burger?!) And the poutine is to die for! The atmosphere has the feel of a casual log cabin, it's great!

I hadn't been here in years, as when we come to Grand Marais, my SO only wants to go one place and one place only. But I managed to get him to come here for a late lunch with a promise to go to his favorite spot for dinner. He loved it and I remember why I loved this place... More

After a morning of shopping, my shopping partner and I asked a local for a recommendation and there was a twinkle in yer eye when she said "My Sister's Place" so we went with it. We were just looking for a quick late weekday lunch, nothing big and drawn out. We found it had cute decor, fun eye candy with... More

I went to my sisters place after seeing the menu in a local papers advertisements while on a trip to grand marais. I went into the restaurant extremely excited for my meal and was sure that it would be delicious, it had to be for how expensive it was right? WRONG. Within minutes of sitting down in the cozy restaurant... More

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!
