Description: The Pickwick is Duluth's landmark restaurant situated on the shore of Lake Superior. Best known for its steaks and seafood from the only indoor charcoal grill in the area. There are also great burgers and sandwiches for under $12. The banquet room accommodates up to 50 people and offers privacy for business or family occasions. The bar has been restored to its 1940 layout offering an energetic atmosphere for all ages. Two happy hours - before dinner and late night - keep the bar hopping from 4am until close. The dining rooms bring back the history of the Pickwick which has been operating since 1914. Fine dining is at its best with our excellent serving staff along with the creations of Chef Jake Sutula. Reservations are accepted. Come see why the Pickwick has been Duluth's place to be for nearly a century!

I try a place at least twice before posting a negative review, as of Thursdays dinner with four others, I would be hard pressed to return. When spending $300 on dinner I expect much better. The appetizers were good, calamari tender and tasty, shrimp cocktail ok, tenderloin bits charred and lacked seasoning. It all went down hill from there. I... More

Had lunch there today I use to love this place back in the "old days" 70's/ 80's. I had a strawberry margarita >> not the best rum any more. Had a Pub Burger for $10 @ 1/3# At least it was fresh meat & cooked correctly but really lacked flavor. And the onion rings? don't bother (but then seems no... More

Had lunch here to celebrate my sons' birthday. We sat in a booth in the pub - which was equipped with our own TV to watch NCAA hoops. The view overlooking the frozen lake looked pretty phenomenal. The food was solid. We had stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer which were a nice start. For entrees, my son had Pepper Cheeseburger... More

Nice place, very quiet with upscale decor. Price is moderate and food is very good. Wait staff is very friendly and quick to take care of your needs.

When visiting Duluth, the Pickwick is always on our list of restaurants to visit. We have been there 5 times in the last year and I have recommended the Pickwick to several friends and family. I usually rave about the onion rings. My husband and I chose to eat at the Pickwick on Saturday night for our 1 year anniversary.... More

Got sat right away... server was awkward to say the least ... soup was good. Steak sucked and was $35 way over cooked ... fish was lame! Basically 3 unbreaded appetizers for $25 and way overcooked. Veggies were soggy. Was really hoping to have a taste of the history... instead... I could have had a better meal for half the... More

Sure enjoyed the Mardi Gras menu at your restaurant this past weekend. I can only hope that the PoBoy sandwich will make a return for good. With the shrimp and chipotle sauce, it was terrific!

We live in this area and have always gone to the Pickwick for dinner and especially for special occasions for many years and we were never disappointed, it was always an outstanding event. When we arrived the hostess asked if it was a special occasion, we told her it was a birthday (my birthday). It was never mentioned or acknowledged... More

We chose to eat an early dinner here on New Year's Eve on the recommendation of a friend. We were not disappoint. The ambiance was Old World with many different seating areas. We enjoyed Lake Trout, ribs, Salmon salad, etc. Soup or salad and bread was included. The food was okay, but not outstanding. The plating was average. The prices... More
