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!

Shhhhh...it's a secret.

Not at all! Old school supper club with really great food. The pork chops were amazing. The trout was HUGE and melted in your mouth. The decor reminds you you're in somewhat of a time machine. I loved the interior woods and wall coverings. It's a classic. The server was nice and we enjoyed a long... read more

While on a business trip, went to dinner at Pickwick's. The menu had very good offerings but it seemed a little overpriced compared to comparable restaurants in the area. Additionally, the service wasn't as good as you would expect with many times looking for the server to refill our drink glasses. It seemed that they may have been understaffed. However,... More

Had a late lunch meeting at the restaurant. Have eaten here previously, but first time with new ownership. Had the mixed greens berry salad with chicken and balsamic dressing. The salad was generously sized and had strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries featured with walnuts and blue cheese crumbles. The salad was very nice and accompanied by warm bread.

Our family decided to try the Pickwick for Easter Dinner because my wife heard great reviews about their onion rings (very good). The Host greeted us with a smile and directed us to great seating overlooking Lake Superior. Trevor filled our water glasses promptly with a smile and charming personality. The waitress came and was very informative and punctual. The... More

5 guys went on a Saturday night for the prime rib special. It was a fine meal, with great service, and a good wine list. A bit of sticker shock when the bill came but we all agreed that we would return, given the chance.

We have been eating here for years . And although the service is pretty good , thier food is no longer cocsistent . Talked to the manager and not too concerned . I guess they will rely on one time customers and not locals !

The food and experience used to be the best in Duluth for all occasions. The Pepperjack Burger with Onion Rings and a side of 1919 Root Beer! Man that was the best. Unfortunately the best place for this type of meal now is Grandma's by the Mall. That has returned to it's former glory! Pickwick has not.

My husband and I had dinner here for his birthday and were looking forward to a great evening and meal. Our waitress was very close to rude and very inattentive. Upon arrival she asked for my husbands' drink order first (rule of thumb I thought was "ladies first'") She not only asked my husband first, but was going to leave... More

We inquired to our young serve Marijah, if the Pickwick had a Gluten Free menu, she said they did not , but they could accommodate all guests, and that she would speak to the Executive chef to make sure that the we could dine in confidence.
