Beer with a view

At this end of town there were surprisingly few restaurants so we chose Sir Benedict's. We were pleasantly surprised by the tasty pub food and large selection of beer. Everyone was friendly. There are several areas within the restaurant to sit, and choose one with a lovely view of Lake Superior.

I came here with friends. You order at the counter and feel lucky if you get a table where you can see the music. Even if you don't, the music fills the place! It looks like they have something going on every night. It looks like they offer food too, will definitely be coming here again!

Our second time here for a late lunch while shopping in Duluth. Had the Smoked Butternut squash soup again. It was well worth driving a bit out of our way. Great view of the Cornillia anchored offf Duluth. Always good food and service. AND the beers...great selection.

Fantastic food every time I go there. the fall harvest soup is really special. wide selection of brews available, it is the one place I go every single time I am in town. The charm of the place is both rustic hole in the wall meets trendy even though it has been here forever. Never ever go wrong here.

Not quite by chance my wife and I hand s quick evening meal at Sir Benedict's. Simply put "the best Reuben sandwich ever!" We just felt comfortable. The service team was just right. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Go to Sir Benedict's.

My wife and I stopped here to listen to the band and have a couple of beers. The place was packed but we were able to snag a seat on the back side of the bar. Friendly bartender kept our glasses full and brought us popcorn. Nice! We saw a steady stream of people picking up sandwiches and if we... More

Sir benedict's Tavern was the first place I eat out when I first came to Duluth, MN. It is a great place with a nice view. I also started coming here for lunch as it offers great lunch specials!

This is another of my favorite places around Duluth. I love the friendly relaxed atmosphere, good music, nice selection of beer (local) and good food. My favorite is the cuban sandwhich, but the nachos aren't bad either. Not much for watching sports on TV with only one TV over the bar. Open Mic Night is fun. Check it out.

The new owners have it right. Great lunch stop. Right on Superior Street next to the Kitchi Gammi Club. Got to the Kitchi after 2 PM so too late for lunch. Where to go? Try Sir Bens and it was as good or better. Less expensive as well. Don't miss this place.

Sir Ben’s has been a long standing establishment in Duluth serving quality soups and sandwiches for many years. We know this because we would occasionally stop here while we were in college at UMD, many years ago. The soups are typically very good and always homemade. The sandwiches, you can’t go wrong building your own or try one of their... More
