If the weather doesn't allow you to sit on the rooftop, there is a cozy indoor seating area in back. Their wood fire pizza is delicious as is the frozen custard.

We just stopped in for a treat. We got the kids each a scoop of the chocolate with m&ms and a turtle sundae to for the adults to share. The price seemed a little much with a total of just over $16. The ice cream was good. The chocolate scoop seemed very comparable to what the kids get at Culvers.... More

We've eaten here two years in row on vacation. I love sitting on the rooftop, where you have an awesome view of the lake - you are right on the shore, with no other buildings or roads between you and the water. We've had pitas and salads, very good, generous servings.

Sydney's has great food! The wood fire pizzas are so tasty! The custard is so creamy and tasty. I love the additions they have made with the inside lake side seating and the rooftop seating overlooking Artist's Point. It is pricey for the little bit of custard you get but it prevents me from eating too much!

Very expensive soft serve ice cream and pizza. Limited ice cream selection. Pizza costs about $20 for a 12" margarita. Not worth it.

I walked to the Lighthouse in Grand Marias and I was REALLY HUNGRY. So I ordered the new Gilled Chicken Pesto pita; it was AWESOME! The best pesto that I have ever had!

We had the GARDEN salad and the MARGERHITA PIZZA both were delicious, then I had the PB cup Sydnami for dessert and it too was delicious - the wait at SVEN and OLES was too long so glad we found this place!

We try to get to this place at least once a year. We love the pizza baked in the fire oven. It is always fun to watch them make it and it's even more fun to eat it! We enjoyed the live musicians on our last 2 visits. This year there was 3 musicians...and they are really, really good. It... More
