We ate breakfast here, not once, but twice it was so good! I had the Sister's Special and it was absolutely heavenly! There pancakes are heavenly and pies out of this world! Everything was so good we even bought their cookbook! You have to try this place!

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

Our visit left us disappointed. It was our first visit to the cafe and likely our last yesterday evening. The fish came out cold on two of our four plates and we found several bones in them. When we mentioned the fish was cold they just took our plates in the back and warmed the fish up. The fish came... More

Our family of six had dinner recently at the Pie Place and were very disappointed in the food and the service. When we were seated we wondered why it was not crowded when every other restaurant on town had a waiting line but soon found out. Two of us had fish and chips and the fish was cooked to a... More

Everything about the breakfast was very good. The crab cake Benedict and cheeses potatoes were filling and well prepared. The maple sausage, onion, Gouda cheese omelet was also good. Be sure to order the wild rice cranberry toast. We went back for late snack and had their blueberry pie with vanilla custard ice cream.

I had the pulled pork sandwich with a side salad. Side salad came with a maple vinaigrette which was amazing. Even though the sandwich was good, wish I would've ordered a salad. Husband had the daily special which was a pork pizza - was a bit dry and needed better sauce. We had a party of 13 and the waitress... More

Food was pretty good. The maple syrup meatloaf sandwich is a nice local spin on a classic, your choice of served hot or cold. Some outdoor seating overlooking beautiful harbor. They even brought a water bowl for the dog when we ate outside. Like a lot of Grand Marais restaurants, mostly foreign servers in summer so service can be hit... More
