Blackwoods is a local chain. There is a resturant in Proctor, Two Harbors and Duluth, but the Duluth location is the very best. They have amazing food, and if you like chicken you should definately try their roasted chicken. Yum! Everything from the pasta to burgers to salads to sandwiches are pleasing meals - basically you can't go wrong. The atmosphere is great. The shop is decorated in dark mahagony like wood with high cielings and views of beautiful Lake Superior. The resturant is always busy, as is the bar which is usually filled with young locals.
Sarah’s Table serves all organic food and the specials are different each night. The food is fresh and healthy. Soups are great for winter, coffee is also tasty (I don’t even care for coffee). It is a bit expensive, but a cozy experience. In the summer enjoy dinner on their porch.
The food here is as good as any I have eaten anywhere in the world. The wine list is extensive and the staff is very friendly and attentive. I ate here 4 times during my week in Duluth. It is owned by Geno Palucci, another Orlando, FL, native, who I understand was from Duluth. His family owns quite a number of the retaurants in Duluth, from Fine dining to afternoon sports bar places. All were GREAT! Very generous portions and COLD beer and fine wine depending on which one you were at.
Favorite Dish: I tried something different every night and all of the dishes were excellent and all of the dishes of my guests were well done also.
This is by far my favorite restaurant in Duluth. The last time I was in town I went here twice in a five hour period! The menu is a world fusion sort of experience, but there is definitely an emphasis on local, northern Minnesota ingredients (i.e. bison, fresh lake fish and wild rasberries are often on the menu). The interior is pine-panelled and has a warm feeling and the staff are usually attentive and knowledgeable. Hours are from 11am to 9pm Sunday through Thursday and 11am to 10pm on Friday and Saturday
Favorite Dish: You'll find a thoughtful wine and beer menu to complement the delicious food. The menu changes often, but if it's available, I can heartily recommend the pecan coated trout sandwich or the buccatini pasta w/ mussels. For dessert, if on the menu, try the goat cheese tart with three types of berries pictured here.
Okay, this place promotes itself as a Chinese/Vietnamese restaurant, but when I was there, they didn't have any Vietnamese food at all! The waiter told us they really serve mostly Chinese American food. It wasn't bad, but it also wasn't anything special.
Favorite Dish: I had some egg drop soup and a Curried Chicken dish that wasn't bad.
Favorite Dish: A micro-brewery located in the Historic Fitger's Brewery complex. They offer twelve taps at the bar with no fewer than seven of their own creation. They also have better than average pub food including homemade soups to keep you warm if you're here in the winter. However, don't expect to get a taste of the original Fitger's Beer. They stopped making that in 1972!
This small restaurant is locally owned and serves fresh sandwhiches, soaps, nachos and popcorn. They have a huge selection of beers, juices and pop. Sir Ben's serves of two happy hours a day and is located on Lake Superior. It is a local's favorite!
Favorite Dish: Turkey sandwhich, provolone cheese and fresh sprouts with orange cream soda.
The specialty at Betty's is pie! They have many different kinds daily and all are delicious. They also serve breakfast, lunch and dinner but we have only been there for pie!
Favorite Dish: My favorite pie is chocolate banana cream!
The Hammond House is located in Superior, Wisconsin, just over the Blatnik Bridge. They specialize in prime rib and it is special, you can usually cut it with your fork. It is a large cut and includes a salad, relish tray and a potato.
Favorite Dish: The prime rib is great, as is the walleye.
The Top of the Harbor is a revolving restaurant on the 16th floor of the Radisson Hotel. It makes a complete turn every 72 minutes and has a great view of the city, harbor and the lake.
Favorite Dish: We have eaten both breakfast and lunch here and everything has been good. The prices are reasonable too considering the view and ambience.
LA's has both a monthly special and daily lunch and dinner specials too. They usually have a $1.50 dessert to chose from also. The prices are very reasonable and the food is very good!
Favorite Dish: Their salsibury steak, swedish meatballs and beef commercials are all very good as is the butterscotch pie.
Starvin' Mavin's serves more of that good old home cooking. Don't let the outside scare you away, the food is great and they have daily lunch and dinner specials. The price is reasonable and the servings are generous. And be sure to try some of their homemade pie before you waddle out!
Favorite Dish: Everything is good from their hot beef sandwiches to their pie!
This is real home cooking too and also has daily and nightly specials. The food is great and the prices are very reasonable for all the food that you get. We highly recommend trying it! You won't go away hungry!
Favorite Dish: I love the pork loin dinner they serve. It comes with a salad, plenty of tender pork, potato, vegetable and a dinner roll. It is delicious as is all their food!
The Sunshine Cafe is located in downtown West Duluth on Grand Avenue. It is a small but homey place and very clean. All the food is homemade and delicious! They are open for breakfast and lunch only and they have daily specials at very reasonable prices! If you like down home cooking, check out the Sunshine Cafe!
Favorite Dish: Mondays are my favorite at Sunshine as they usually roast a turkey and serve up a wonderful meal with stuffing and all. There chicken is also very good as are the omlettes and hot sandwiches! You can't go wrong on anything here!
Basic American reataurant but the building used to be a brothel at one time and the place itself is like a museum of old adversitements and antiques. They've had this kind of ambiance before TGI Fridays did.
Favorite Dish: They make a pretty good pizza.
