ATMOSPHERE Probably one of the best 360 views in/of the city. The decor is a well executed modernized 50's nautical with hints of industrial. SERVICE Overall mediocre - from the host stand to our table. I can't complain, but for the menu and the claim of "elevated experience" on their website, I expected more. We did enjoy ourselves and our... More

I went here to celebrate closing on a house. The decor is nautical 1950s, which is very neat. The view is breathtaking. It is nice that the restaurant spins slowly so you get a 360 view of the area. The food I would say is just ok. You can tell they cook certain foods and then let them sit under... More

The view is fantastic, it's somewhere you have to experience at least once. The food was ok. My husband had soup (chicken tortilla, which was good) and the meatloaf, which was so so. A bit salty for my liking but I just had 1 bite. He had the orange buttermilk cake for dessert, which was good. I had the caesar... More

The spinning took a little bit to get used to, but the views were unparalleled, the food was excellent (however the scallop appetizer should have come with more it was so fantastic), most importantly the service was on point.

We are local repeat customers to this fine establishment. This restaurant is located at the top of the Radisson Hotel in Duluth. The views are amazing- beautiful views of of this harbor city located on Lake Superior. What sets this restaurant apart is the food. We have never had a meal that has been disappointing! It's difficult to say which... More

Very nice place. Food was very good had filet and my wife had pork tenderloin. Both were excellent. Service was fantastic from the very start. Views were great. A little expensive but probably on par with other places with this sort of menu and quality

JJ Astor's is a unique experience. There are not too many of these rooftop rotating restaurants and this location is well worth the trip. Overlooking lake Superior proves time and time again to be exciting and entertaining. The food is excellent and the varied menu insures all members of the dining party will find something they like. As you might... More

My wife and I dine out regularly in Duluth. We rarely have a bad meal here, but this one really stood out. She ordered the Citrus Brined Chicken and proclaimed it one of the best sub-$20 meals she has ever had, period. My Pork Tenderloin was tender, flavorful and fantastic. The sides we chose went with the entrees very well.... More
