New owners, new menu, much happier tummies!!!

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.

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

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

This small restaurant overlooks the harbor in Grand Marais. Nothing fancy, but the food is well prepared and the service is quick and friendly. Had a light lunch the first day. I had Radish Dill soup which was unusual but excellent and homemade Mango Ginger Lemonade which was very refreshing. Also shared a slice of homemade Maple Pecan pie. Delicious!... More

The Pie Place recently moved its location in Downtown Grand Marais, right across from the harbor. The new setting has facilitated a great new menu and better service. I think it is now one of the best food values in town.

Went to The Pie Place for an enjoyable outdoor breakfast. The weather was a balmy 75 degrees. Had the fantastic egg sandwich. Nothing like I've tasted before with their special hash browns... DELICIOUS!!!!!!!
