We go to JJ Astor's every time we're in Duluth (which is often) and we always have a superb experience. The food is always top-quality & perfectly prepared & seasoned. It's quite expensive, but it's worth it for the experience. The service is always great. In particular, Cindy, our server most recently, was outstanding. She took great care of us... More

Celebrating with my son at the top of the Radisson, JJ Astor is a lovely setting with beautiful scenery. We often order the steak and shrimp and never are disappointed. However, the new surprise was the order of brussel sprouts that were absolutely wonderful, and I am not normally a vegetable fan, much less for brussel sprouts!

The food is a bit spendy .. I have only been for lunch so that's not so hard on your budget .It's worth it to try just for the view. Such. View. The room goes full,circle in one hour. Easy free parkig is a plus fo being downtown.

So visually unappealing I couldn't even try it. My eggs Benedict came over cooked so I sent it back and the eggs came back raw with about 3... More

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!
