I just had to do a review after reading some of the negative comments about a place I love and have been to often. My family and I always stop at The Pie Place when we're in Grand Marais, and we all love the food. Yes, the service is a little slow --- and I can't comment on this restaurant for dinner. It's a small place with a small staff. Are we all traveling to the beautiful north shore of Lake Superior because we're in a tremendous hurry? Slow down, smell the fresh air, and enjoy the breeze coming in on the sun porch. I love the sandwiches and soups. The bread is always great -- homemade, soft, fresh. They have the greatest chicken salad ! And, of course, the best pie in the world. Don't even mess with Betty's! I love the chocolate cream pie, and all the fruit pies are delicious.
I have never had any of the staff be anything but accommodating, friendly, and helpful. Yes, you may have to wait for your pie to come out of the oven. It's vacation -- have another cup of the excellent coffee and relax. The food is worth the wait.
