I stopped by on the recommendation of a friend when we were on the North Shore over spring break. The only whole pies available were two day-old apple pies, so I bought one to bring back to the family. It was hands down the best apple pie I've ever had. My kids agreed. I wish I had purchased both of... More

My daughter and I stopped in for lunch. We wanted a place where we could eat with a great view of lake Superior. We found the view we were looking for, but we also found friendly and prompt service, an excellent menu and the best rhubarb pie we had ever had. We will be back in the morning!

We have been taking an annual girls trip for 20 plus years to the Grand Marais area and for many of them we have eaten at The Pie Place. We were there in March and have always found The Pie Place charmig, clean, comfortable and that fact that it is right in town is a plus. The food is so... More

We stopped for lunch at the Pie Place on our way to Thunder Bay, Canada. We had a nice window seat to look out over the harbor. Very pleasant waitress and atmosphere. Very good homemade soup and meatloaf lunch special. Topped it off with a fresh yummy slice of apple pie. I would definitely recommend The Pie Place. FYI, The... More

Full disclosure: This reviewer is a guy. And I did not have pie. So the value of this review probably is a bit limited. I thought this was a chic-place. Nothing wrong with that. But if you're expecting a real cafe with healthy portions and basic fare, this may not be your place. The view was beautiful looking out over... More

We were in town for a countertop installation. What a cool town by the way! We decided to grab some pie here and were very pleased. I had a multi-berry pie, called triple berry I think. It was delicious! I will plan to eat there again next time we are within an hour or so! The people were really nice... More

Get the bumbleberry pie. Buy a whole one to take home. Hot pie with vanilla ice cream, what could be better? Get a window seat at the restaurant and watch the wave son the lake wwhile sipping a tasty hot cider with your excellent pastrami sandwhich! YUM.

Sitting on the shore of lake superior made for a great view while we dined at lunch. Outside dining was available although we did eat inside. Of course you have to have pie for dessert....The portions of our lunch were huge, not complaining!!!!!

I like sushi as much as the next girl but my whitefish wasn't supposed to be raw (but it was). Horrible! I sent it back and got something else by which time my husband was finished eating. They offered me no discount whatsoever for serving me a raw piece of whitefish. I had high hopes for this place but was... More

We spent four nights in Grand Marais and ate here on the fourth night for the first time, if we had eaten here first we probably wouldn't have gone anywhere else, although we usually like to try new places. It was that good. The only problem is the name because even though the pie is great they are so much... More
