And a nicer décor. Eaten here often, to me the menu is about what you would expect, but the prices will put you in shock, especially after you didn't get what you paid for. I don't mind a premium price, but it should come with premium food and better service than a roadhouse. I have been a certified chef for... More

This is a great place to go, the staff is friendly the food is really good and the building is great. I tend to get burgers when I am there, I just like them. The people I am there with range from steak to chicken to seafood. We don't have a bad word to say about the place.

It was not outstanding but it was not the worst either. It was a good place with good food and interesting rustic/country/log cabin/canoe atmosphere (we commented on one wildlife picture showing a grizzly with a salmon which is NOT Minnesotan).

Good food, cocktails, and atmosphere. Typical pricing for a nicer restaurant. I look forward to returning on my next visit. It was a nice way to kick off our mini vacation.

My family has been to the Blackwoods Grill and Bar many times. For us it used to be a great place for us to stop for a meal on our way up from the Twin Cities to the north shore. The kids love the train that circles the top of the restaurant and the food has always been very good.... More

We had to wait quite a while to be seated, even though the place was nearly empty. That was a bit of a bummer, but the food was pretty good! There was a toy train that toured around the building and my kids loved that. All in all, I would for sure eat there again, because the food really was... More

Went there as a family. Husband had two chicken breasts, one was rubbery, ate his croissant roll which had a good flavor but had a hair. My son had the salmon sandwich which was good but had a hair. I had a reuben that was good but not really good. I was hoping for better. Overall it was okay.

We walked here for dinner one evening while staying at the Edgewater. The hostess was great and offered to store our stroller in a locked room for us while we ate. The kids really enjoyed watching the train go around the restaurant and watching the chef through the view window. The atmosphere and decor are warm and inviting. I ordered... More

We ate at the Black Woods in Duluth this past weekend while staying in Canal Park. We decided to get away from the usual spots and try something different. No problems getting a table and the service was fine. Dinner on the other hand was very overpriced for the entrees. We had two pasta dishes, the whitefish with wild rice,... More

We live in Duluth and eat here every once in a while. It is a place we take out of town visitors. The view and the atmosphere lend to the charm. They have a train that runs through the restaurant along the top of the walls. Our grandson loved that when he was small. The outdoor seating in the summer... More
