Go for the 360 views of Duluth

Stayed at the Radisson where this restaurant resides. Had lunch our first day there. Great way to get a Birdseye view of Duluth to plan your visit. Food was good. White tabkecloth service.

You can't get this view from any other restaurant in the city and it's a panaramic view. The restaurant sits on top of the Hotel and very slowly spins around while you are dining. The food is top notch high quality. An absolute must for visitors and residents.

Food was a little too avant grade for all tastes. The duck breast which they claimed to prepare medium rare was practically raw. It was sent back for more cooking and was returned still more rare than medium. It was inedible. The clam chowder came with the clams in the shells .

My husband and I enjoyed a pre-theater dinner at JJ Astor. We have now dined there about once every other month for the past year, and each time, the quality of the food has improved, so much so that we believe it is equal to or surpasses our other Duluth favorite, Restaurant 301. I love the small plates -- a... More
