Revolving restaurant!

We ate here because we wanted to visit the revolving restaurant. The views are great and that made it fun. The service was very good, the food was good, but it was quite expensive. We had dinner so we could Duluth at night - perhaps breakfast would have been a better price.

We came in with family from out of town for Bluesfest. Cindy, our waitress, was absolutely fantastic and made the whole dining experience very enjoyable! What a fun night. Compliments to the chef as well - the cinnamon rubbed sirloin was delicious!

The menu was to the point, we started with the perfectly prepared scallops, it was refreshing and light with the hollandaise orange sauce! My boyfriend and I split the pecan crusted walleye with mashed potatoes and vegetables! Great portions to split, and our server Tyler was knowledgable and very attentive! Definitely will be returning customers :)

We didnt want to leave the hotel for breakfast so we decided on this place on the roof of the Radisson Hotel. It has breathtaking views of Duluth and it revolves 360 degrees every hour.

Went to this for an anniversary dinner. We were seated promptly (the restaurant was not took busy). The views are good and since we were visitors to the area it gave us a good overlook of the city. Had to ask the waitress if there were any special offerings for the evening. Which there was only one (an appetizer) I... More

Server was a joy, the rotating seating area delightful, the food fantastic, and I really appreciated being able to eat in the lounge since I didn't have a reservation.

Our reservations at the restaurant were part of a special trip with my parents. We had two meals there, and Kirsten, the restaurant manager, made certain that we had a great spot to view the Tall Ships. Zach and Joanne, our servers, were both cheerful and accommodating, sharing information about the surroundings and the festival and setting aside a dessert... More
