Had a party of 20 and 8pm on a Saturday night. We were in the front room facing the lake and had our own server. She did an excellent job and the food was really good. They have so many options low cal cocktails. The atmosphere is great, the food is great, would come back here again!

Hubby and I came here on our last night of vacation to Duluth. Made a reservation for a scenic view and weren't disappointed by the panoramic sights of Lake Superior. They have a fair number of tap beers and specialty cocktails. I ordered the mac and cheese and Hubby had the chicken and ribs. My pasta was delicious and creamy,... More

We chose this restaurant because our hotel offered a coupon. Both my husband and I ordered pasta dishes. The service was fast and friendly. The pasta was good but it would have been a better experience if the meal came with some good quality bread instead of 3 little pieces of toast. All that good pasta sauce and no bread... More

We ate here twice and enjoyed it both times. The wall-eyed pike was not the best we've had, but was very good. The second night my husband had the ribs and I had rotisserie chicken. The chicken was delicious! Ribs were great, but not as good as some we've had. (However, we lived in Texas for many years, so we're... More

What can you say about Blackwood's - the burgers are out of this world, the brunch in Duluth is great, the service is wonderful and you never go wrong stopping there.

We read good reviews about this place and decided to check it out since it was close to where we were staying. We really enjoyed our waiter, Ben. He was very helpful in his suggestions, checked on us often enough but not too much. View was great, food was very tasty and we didn't feel rushed. We would highly recommend... More

We dined here the night before Grandma's Marathon; got right in with a reservation. The menu was very promising with lots of choices. The steak tip appetizer was very salty, but our meals were great! Best Reuben sandwich I have had in ages. Service was okay, considering the restaurant was busy, our order was likely misplaced as our food took... More
