This is always the first place we come to when we get to Duluth. They've changed owners a couple times over the last few years - not always great - but the food and atmosphere hasn't been lost. Make sure to grad a pint of local beer and a fresh sandwich. Homemade soups are usually awesome too. There's frequently live... More

My boyfriend and I have been going to Sir Benedict's for a long time and love the food. Today we went in and there was a waiter named David. He was extremely rude to both us and the other staff working. When we said what type of beer we wanted, he said "Oh, you are one of those people." Also,... More

One of the best meeting spots for lunch in the Twin Ports. Excellent homemade soups and sandwiches made with fresh ingredients and lots of imagination. Very homey and comfortable atmosphere with superb people watching and Lake Superior views.

A regular stop of mine when in Duluth for lunch. Hand cut bread, delicious, quality ingredients, makes for a great sandwich. Sit on the patio, enjoy your lunch and the view of the lake.

This is a great lunch spot! My husband and I both had soup. He had a wild rice soup and I had the squash soup. They were both delicious. We shared a wonderful grilled cheese sandwich. The sandwich come with choice of 3 vegetables. Fun atmosphere and good location.

I love that the tavern has a fantastic variety of beers and sandwiches while concocting wonderful soups. In the summer, sit out on the patio and watch people and the lake. In the winter, grab a couple of friends and play a wild game of UNO. It's all good at Sir Ben's.

This tavern is very unique. It is warm and friendly and has great food. We had some pizza and some sandwiches and also a dessert. It was all very good. It is crowded and noisy but I like that. You really should try it.

Newer owners are great! The staff know my drink order. This IS more of a bar than a restaurant so you will not find a hostess to seat you. Order at the register and your food will be brought out to your table. The REAL charm lies in the local music involved. Friends gather on Wednesday nights to jam Bluegrass... More

Food was mediocre. Beer selection was uninspired. Interior doesn't match the charm of the exterior. But worst of all was the service. If you like being judged for worthiness of service while being ignored, then this place might be to your liking.

Was here on a Thursday evening and thoroughly enjoyed their celtic music in the round. Some good musicians just enjoying their craft, which you could enjoy listening too or just leave as background to your own conversation. Great beer selection!
