Although the prices are on the higher end (Typcial for Grand Marais) the prices appear to be lower than when the Pie Place was located in their previous location. The bread and salad were excellent. The food was fine to good. The service was poor.

The cafe is a small area with a great view of the harbor. They've done a good job taking a small space and making it look nice. The food was good and prices reasonable. Our server wasn't very good (left waiting a lot, part of order didn't come out, told us meatloaf sandwich couldn't be made hot even though menu... More

I picked this restaurant because I'd read that the pie was supposed to be exceptional. My lunch -- portobello sandwich -- was quite good, but the pie didn't live up to expectations. Not bad, but not outstanding. One minor gripe. I ordered hot tea because the menu said green tea was available. When I got the hot water and selection... More

Both times I've been to the pie place the food was not good at all. First time I got biscuits and gravy, the biscuits were just English muffins that were very dry and gross. Second time, I got crab cake eggs Benedict, and the hollandaise sauce wasn't real, it was just melted American cheese. The wait staff is plenty friendly,... More

While a bit expensive for just a piece of pie and glass of lemonade I am sure the money is in the experience of a waterfront view. Delish pie a la frozen custard.

We ate breakfast at this restaurant in July. We didn't order anything fancy and there were only 2 of us. We watched as all the other tables around us received their food. We weren't in a hurry, so not a huge deal, just confusing. The food was average at best. View is amazing!

Don't be fooled by the exterior, the food inside the Pie Place Cafe is very, very good. Make sure you save room for dessert and if you're there in the morning, I highly recommend the fresh scones with clotted cream.

I was on my own one day while on vacation in this area while my family went on a ferry to Isle Royal. We had heard about all the "Pie Places" that were historically the best on the way to Grand Marais (Betty's Pies and Rustic Pies). We ended up eating lunch at Rustic Pies which was good on the...

We loved overlooking the harbor while dining. Great menu choices. Our server was fantastic, prompt and knowledgeable. Of course we got pie, and it was delicious. Would recommend,

We just went in for cookies and ended up with the best chocolate chip cookies and scones! We should have bought a dozen cookies and a dozen scones!!! Not to be missed!
