On a nice summer afternoon it's a tough choice as to whether to sit in front and listen to the live music they sometimes have or sit up on the amazing roof time dining area. This time we chose the roof top b/c the sun was warm and we wanted to gaze out on Lady Superior before having to head... More

We have visited Grand Marais several times over the years, and this was our first time eating at Sydney's. It has become my new Grand Marais favorite. We were looking for a dog friendly place to eat. Sydney's has two areas they allow you to bring your dogs - there's a patio in front, and an upstairs deck in the... More

Awesome Turtle Sunday. Pecans were toasted. Lots of toppings. Went up on the roof to eat it and watched Lake Superior.

We had a lovely breakfast of crepes and coffee on the rooftop overlooking Lake Superior. The food was tasty and light and the view made for a memorable morning.

Super ice cream that was very flavorful. If you go through to the back there is a wonderful view. There is also a rooftop deck, which we did not try out. We asked for a single and were charged for a double. I did not catch it until we had made it back to our hotel. Lesson learned! Check receipts... More

The custard is good- but a little $$ for what you get. The real reason to stop here is the rooftop deck with a view of the lake. Gorgeous!

The custard here is wonderful. Each time we come we comment that 'it still is good!'. The seating on the upper deck offers great views and if the sun s shining you can get a tan while indulging. 😊 The seating inside give you views of the water as well. The food here is also good.

This is right on the beach of Lake Superior. You place your order at one window and pick it up at the next. They had good frozen custard.

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
