Amazing views

One dinner was the duck which was very good, served medium rare. The Brussels sprouts were excellent, the risotto was... read more

Evening out with my wife, this place had it all: great food, awesome senic view and very friendly waitstaff. We started off with the flatbread appitizer which was very tasty. We then had the blueberry salad, just an explosion of so many flavors. Final course was salmon for her and stuffed meatloaf for me.......we enjoyed every single bite. The dinner... More

JJ Astor has great food, an innovative menu, good wine and drinks, a magnificent view, good service. However, for Duluth it could be considered expensive.

All aspects were covered well. The view is unmatchable. Dinner was phenomenal, lobster mac and fillet went well with good wine. Restaurant was surprisingly casual. Would recommend for special occasions or first trips to the city.

My large family dined here for a special birthday dinner. The revolving restaurant provided great views, particularly of the beautiful holiday lights and Lake Superior. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Appetizers and entries were delicious. Service was excellent, particularly for our large and a little noisy group. I would say that the bathrooms need to be more wheelchair accessible, we had...

This restaurant has beautiful views of Duluth and Superior. We went around Christmas time so the amazing lights of Bentleyville were on full display. It was very romantic. The menu is limit and it is very expensive, but I thought good. I am allergic to shell fish so it was limited for me. The ambiance and views are breathe taking.... More
