We actually arrived and they weren't even open yet so the bartender said to sit down and relax, he is there to work and has money in the till so no worries that it wasn't opened yet. Very pleasant to talk to and gave us some pointers of other good watering holes. We didn't have intentions of... read more

We chose this place for dinner after looking at reviews of restaurants near our downtown hotel. Salad and walleye for me, trout for my wife - we didn't have any dessert. As I recollect, the food was good but not great and the service was fine. There was a live musician playing when we started our meal but she was... More

... And it was worth every penny. The Tycoon name stems from the fact that at the turn of the century, Duluth had more tycoons per capita during it's boom era than any other city in the country. This relatively "new on the scene" restaurant celebrates Duluth history by combining classic period style with eclectic new elements. A nice departure... More

Visiting some friends and they suggested Tycoons for dinner. We were seated right away. Waitress was very helpful with drink selection. Food was very good. Were told of the Rathskeller below and the activities happening upstairs during their Oktoberfest celebration, but we did not check it out.

I'd say that there is not a good value here any more. Portion sizes and quality have gone down to the standards that Tycoons had in the past. I came there with my wife and had a $16 "Butcher Burger." It was dry and overcooked and resembled a small hockey puck. My wife's wild rice burger was less than half... More

Did not rate a 5 because I didn't try the food. Wonderful, inviting, relaxing atmosphere. I would not hesitate to order food but am meeting my wife elsewhere for supper. A 12 minute walk from Canal Park if you want to get away from tourist central. The bar tender told me this used to be the old city hall and... More

We were told 15 minute wait so we waited at the bar. Nicole (bartender) was great, but 20 minutes later still waiting for a table while there are 3 dirty tables waiting to be cleared for at least 15 minutes and 3 tables waiting to have checks run. Finally get a table in the dining room where the temperature on... More

My husband and I celebrated our 30th anniversary with dinner at Tycoons on Superior Street in Duluth. Easy street parking or across the street in the ramp. Had a round of cocktails, mine with gin from a local distillery. Our steaks were done perfectly and we shared a yummy cheese cake. Our server was attentive, informative and fun without being...

I've been to Tycoon's for lunch and after work drinks. It's a good (can be loud) atmosphere, and their tap beers are very good. Their appetizers are generally pretty tasty and generous portions. Lunch choices are somewhat eclectic, but generally satisfy. Service tends to be attentive and friendly.
