The view from the revolving restaurant is amazing. Our waiter Chad was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The bruschetta is better than any we've ever had and the walleye was incredible! Great menu and outstanding wine selection! We felt pampered by the great service!

I liked my breakfast and the view with the moving building is cool. It is a little spendy though and not someplace I'd go for dinner.

If there was a most improved award, JJ Astor would likely take it home. I had previously had a poor experience, which the restaurant not only contacted me on TripAdvisor, but also via email. Really appreciating the effort the restaurant was making, I brought out of town guests with me on this visit - and it was hands down wonderful.... More

Well, this is at the top of the Raddison Hotel and is a rotating restaurant. What a spectacular view coupled with excellent food. 360 degrees in about one and half hours.

Our office - 6 employees - had a small Christmas party here. I hadn't been to the restaurant in 15+ years and had heard the food wasn't as good as it had been. Well I heard wrong. We had a wonderful time. We arrived right at 5, just as the restaurant was opening. We were promptly seated and within minutes... More

My husband and I went to JJ Astor on Thanksgiving. We had looked online and the Thanksgiving buffet items sounded great! We were drooling for turkey with all the fixings. When we arrived we were disapointed to see there was no buffet. Just a short, high priced menu But then the waitress informed us there was a special with turkey,... More

The Astor Room is on top of the Radisson with a revolving floor in the round that gives you a 360 degree view as you silently rotate around the room. We were seated in a banquet booth that were very comfortable. We had a view of the harbor with the beautiful lift bridge and the harbor. Since we were there... More

A classic downtown Duluth restaurant that spins gently as you eat atop the Radisson Hotel, it is totally worth the visit to check out Lake Superior and Duluth's hillside homes. On a sunny, late Fall day it was a wonderful leisurely way to have breakfast. The service is friendly but somewhat handicapped by a high tables to staff ratio. The... More

We had a gift card which is why we went. It was so much fun. The restaurant does a 360 degree rotation while you are there eating. Great views of Duluth and the food was great. We were not sure what to expect, but we walked away happy with our experience.
