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!!!!!!!

And it appears that you are paying for it. I have eaten here several times on separate trips and my overall impression is that the food is good but the prices too high. I understand that is is a seasonal area and they have to make their money during the "season" but this place seems a bit out of kilter... More

Yes ladies and gentleman, if you appreciate the long lost taste of real American pie, then please stop at The Pie Place in Grand Marais, Minnesota! I have found no other restaurant or bakery that compares. The Pie Place still uses traditional crusts which are flaky and nutty tasting. The Pie Place fills their delicious crusts with real made from... More

Or come back for the pie after a leisurely walk thru town as we did. All in Grand Marais seem to know this is their go to place for a good meal at a fair price. Enjoyed our % discount as we stayed at the inn next door, then bought 2 of Kathy Rice's Pie Place cookbooks, a real treasure... More

This place is a quandary for us, the food is excellent but they call it a pie place and the pie is horrible. The price per piece is way high but we figured since it was called a pie shop we 'd splurge. Another problem was they list all sorts of pie on their menu. & then stand there and... More

It was a busy Sunday morning and the space really is so small with low ceilings so when the weather is warm; it's too hot stuffy to eat inside. A table became available outside, so we ventured out there. The waitress was a little overwhelmed and made us wait to give our order citing that others were ahead of us... More

I ordered their soup special (corn/crab chowder) and the chicken pot pie--both were delicious--with the soup being outstanding. Didn't have room to try their homemade pie. Reasonably priced.

The first time I ate at the Pie Place in their current location, they had just moved from just out of town. The salad I ordered had a piece of broken plastic in it (plate?) and I had to remind them to remove the salad from the bill. I chalked it up to new moving woes, and debated coming back... More

Went here for breakfast. The food was good, but too expensive, IMHO. If not for the cost, I'd have given it 4 stars. Our service was excellent. A European waitress who was very friendly, efficient, and all smiles. I watched her take care of a couple of little old ladies at a table next to us and she was super... More
