Came here after a looooong day at the DECC. Our bartender was funny and quick. Open mike is always interesting, esp when you are NOT a local. Had a great time and 4 drinks were under $20. Pretty nice.

My wife and I were driving through Duluth on a rainy Fall afternoon looking for someplace new to try. We've driven by Sir Ben's numerous times and just never stopped. Turns out that was a bad decision. This place is a gem. When we entered we were greeted warmly by Josephine who was tending bar and taking orders. She proceeded... More

Being a Brit I felt like this place was kind of familiar so over the years have gone back to it over several summers. This last time, however, I saw it for what it seems to be, a tired, dismal, uninspiring 'pub' that has not changed one iota since my first visit, except that the food presentation has not improved...

After a day of hiking and enjoying the great outdoors, a cold tap beer, a great sandwich and a cup of soup can cap your day in a haze of coolness that you'll recall for years. Sir Ben's is just that place. The food is fantastic and the decor will remind you of those hours you spent in dark pubs,... More

We arrived right after Sir Ben's opened. We were the third group in line. The first two groups were getting take out orders, as were we. They had a cashier who was spending more time barking orders at the two food preparers than taking orders. We ordered the Italian Melt and the British Melt. My receipt had a time of... More

Sir Ben's is one of my favorite summer venues. If you can find a spot on the patio facing the lake, you can't beat the view. They used to have Strongbow original on tap, which is why I started going there (now they have Strongbow Gold Apple, which isn't nearly as good). The food is what keeps bringing me back.... More

This is a smaller beer bar with decent sandwich selection. The ordering process is different, go inside and order then go find a table. The sandwiches are good but not great. Good beer selection but nothing special anymore with the brewery explosion.

Sometimes you walk into a restaurant not knowing what to expect and just because its there and you are so damn hungry - Well this place is one of the best surprises ever. They serve a range of sandwiches soups and salads and a small but excellent desert list. Everything was exceeding good! Fresh well prepared and sincerely tasty. The... More

We stumbled upon this awesome little tavern! The staff was great and drinks were cold! We didn't eat, but the food looked amazing.

Go to the patio and savor MN delightful summertime and the lack beyond the road......or on a cold winter night, nab a spot by the black stove and a board game..watch some hockey above the bar, eat some custom simple food and chill (literally)...you'll be glad you did.
