Don't Eat Here if it's Busy........

Stopped here with a group of six guys on a Saturday night in February. We had 6:45 pm reservations and the place was packed. So here is the disclaimer to this review: It was busy....very, very busy. We showed up early at 6:00pm and waited our 45 minutes for our table....no problem. We... read more

My husband and I drove from the cities to stay for a night. We stayed at the Canal Lodge. We left the kids at home for some alone time. I called a couple times before we went to eat to check on the wait times. When the wait was over at about 8:30 we headed up their to eat. We... More

Duluth is a half way point between us and many family members. So we like to meet at a restaurant and enjoy a good meal together. Black Woods has been that restaurant MANY times now! We have never left unhappy or hungry. I personally can NOT leave with ordering the Irish Wings, they are AMAZING. Their kids menus have a... More

My husband and I visited on Valentines day, and were seated in the lake superior room right next to giant windows overlooking the lake! Besides the wonderful view and great decor, the cocktails and food were delectable! They have a wide variety of choices. My husband devoured the BBQ bacon cheeseburger (homemade BBQ sauce!) and I had Pasta Santino. I... More

Our two families - including 3 children - were looking for a nice restaurant with good food. The kids were happy with their food - salmon, prime rib and an item from the kids menu - as were the adults - Ahi tuna, prime rib and salad. The cheese curds and steak bit apps were also enjoyed. We were here... More

Went to grab lunch and there is a fantastic view looking out to Lake Superior! They have way more options than a typical "burger-joint", but that was just the vibe that I got from the place! They have a very nice, fancier bar that would be a great place to hang at night and get any type of drink that... More

We are from WI and we know our cheese curds and they were not good here but the rest of the food was wonderful. We had a bison burger and the pasta luca brasi and they were delicious. The showstopper that you need to save room for is the Passion wave chocolate cake. It is so moist and so yummy... More

Not impressed with the food here. The cheese curds were greasy. My steak was suppose to be medium and there was no pink in the meat at all. My husband & son had burgers and they said there wasn't a lot of flavor in the meat. Thought we would give this place a try since its been many years since... More

If you would enjoy a cozy rich,dark-wood paneled dining room with a view of Lake Superior, quality service, and well-presented food, Black Woods is a inviting place to stop. I have eaten here several times and the overall experience is always a pleasant one. The food is good across the board, but their rotisserie chicken is one of my favorites.... More

We were well looked after from start to finish. Didn't find being call a "guy" was particularly inviting. Food was tasty although I think it was a bit over-salted. Excellent value for your money. The interior is starting to show its age and needs a face-lift. The washrooms are very dark!
