Unique place - great food and music with an interesting selection of beer and sodas.

We went to St Ben's on our last night in Duluth - a Monday night. It had live music and it was fun for the kids to see a live singer. You order everything at the bar and they deliver it to your table. My husband and I had hot sandwiches and both were very good, unique and tasty. The... read more

Beer was pricey. Service was poor. Not many people were there at the time, mostly locals getting service.

This is the first place we ate in Duluth after moving up from Texas. While dining out in Minnesota is more expensive across the board than in Texas, this restaurant in particular stands out as being really expensive. Food is decent but not worth paying a premium. They always seem to have a good crowd, though, and they frequently have... More

Generally good eats but the last time we were there we waited 15 minutes to order (standing in line) and then about 15 minute for our food. Ugh. I will not come here for a noon lunch again. It seemed somewhat disorganized...

The sandwich I had was excellent. There were so many delicious sounding choices. I loved sitting outside under the umbrella looking at the Lake.

The food was good, but the service was strange. You had to go order at the bar and there was no real waitress. It was a cool atmosphere and the music was great.

Nice patio with view of lake across street. Easy walk to boardwalk or park if you wish to take order there. Friendly staff. We ordered turkey salad (great) and tuna melt (would've been better with albacore). Kettle chips and a dill pickle (considerately wrapped so it wouldn't leak into everything else).

We stopped there for lunch and loved it. You order inside and they give you a number and bring your food to you. We had 1/2 sandwich and a cup of soup for $6.50. You custom order your sandwich with bread and meat choices, cheese and veggies and we had four soup choices and chose the squash soup and it... More

We heard about this place from a co worker who was meeting family here for lunch. Very popular with local people and for good reason. Great variety of sandwiches and soups as well as many beers and more. I had a Cuban sandwich which was different than most but in a good way. My wife had a beef sandwich and... More
