Online reviews and a love of woodfired pizza led us to this place. The custard was pricey but good and the rooftop view was cool, but everything else was disappointing. The friendly service people couldn't explain the convoluted ordering process and even once that mystery was solved, we got a limp, flavorless pizza. Maybe we are spoiled by pizza farms... More

The custard was over priced. Tables on upper level were dirty and trash cans were over flowing. Will not go back.

Great food, although portions are a little small compared to the typical American appetite. They are supportive of local music and often have a musician playing. Creative menu items, family run, wood fired pizza... and did I mention the view? Also, the best ice cream in town.

Yes the custard was good but a small was over $6.00. I had the PB&J sundae and it was good but not worth the price tag. I am wishing I would have tried the pizza however and will return to do that in the future.

We had the wood fired pizza. Very tasty and an outdoor upper deck for viewing Lake Superior. We flowed dinner with some home made ice cream, also very good. The location is near the water in easy walking distance to shops and the shoreline. The entertainment was quaint and most relaxing. This will be on our list of places to... More

Sydney's Frozen Custard was an every night after-dinner stop for my husband and me. The custard is delicious, many toppings are available, and then one can take their cone or bowl to the rooftop and enjoy not only the sweetness of the custard, but the beauty of Lake Superior as well.

BEST PIZZA IN TOWN!! Seriously! Yes you might see a billboard on your way into town of another pizza joint, but the good restaurants don't need to advertise. They serve breakfast on the weekends and offer a dinner menu, but I can not get over the pizzas. The crust is from scratch and hand tossed. The sauce is made in... More

Sydney's frozen custard = amazing. Honestly, we've never tried anything else there... only the double-dutch chocolate frozen custard, and it is out of this world. Out of the 6 days we were in Grand Marais this trip, we stopped there 3 times for the custard!

We had a nice view from the upper deck to have breakfast, however- for the price- the size of the quiche was quite small and seemed to be microwaved heated. $3.00 for a cup of coffee, again a bit on the high side. Did not have custard after the breakfast experience. Pricey and you are still asked to clear your... More
