Good Menu - check it out.

They've got a very interesting menu. We only ate there once, and what we had was good -- I'd offer one suggestion, if you order a sandwich -- unless you LOVE mayonaise, ask for it

Having read some good reviews, we stopped in for lunch at the Pie Place. Interesting menu w/lots of choices but since we were planning on dessert (Hey! It is the Pie Place!), we chose to split a cold meatloaf sandwich. The sandwich arrived as a HOT meatloaf sandwich, with carmelized onions....not the cold meatloaf with lettuce & tomato as ordered.... More

Wow! While staying at the Harbor Inn i decided to partake of the 50% off breakfast at their restaurant, The Pie Place Cafe, and was I glad I did?! By far the best breakfast I've had in Minnesota: made from scratch pancakes, homemade maple sausage patties (they use a local organic maple syrup for them), and cheesy breakfast potatoes that...

outstanding salads and the pie is to die for. I go there and get pie and then decided if I want anything else to eat.

This is the BEST breakfast in Minnesota, hands down. Incredible. So so good. The Sister's breakfast, Biscuits n Gravy, those Maple Sausage Patties and man, oh man, THAT PIE!!! Wow!

This place used to be called 'The Crying Onion' or something - would never go back. BUT// "The Pie Place" - absolutely yummy. The salad, soups, crab cakes and various flavoured iced tea. The deserts are a whole new thing. Very good. Pretty sure if you call ahead, they'll even custom bake a pie to eat or order to take... More

If you are new to travelling in the Midwest, you may be surprised to see a lot of restaurants featuring "pie" and, depending on your roots, you may even confuse Midwestern "pie" with East Coast pie or Caribbean pie which assuredly are made with meat, potatoes or pasta and cheese. A Midwest pie, on the other hand, is straight out... More

My husband and I go here each year we are up at the North Shore, their crab cake salad is the best and their homemade pies are delish!

We ended up having dinner here both nights we were in Grand Marais. Nice location overlooking the harbor. In our two nights we both had the three meat maple glazed meatloaf and the homemade chicken pot pie, both of which were excellent. Portions are adequate, not huge, and flavorful. Good selection of local beers. Service was OK, a bit slow... More
