Good dinner and drinks

Stopped in for a late dinner and had their Bloody Mary. Great drink and presentation. Ribs were well cooked and served along side a tasty dollop of potatoes and a side of beans. Good meal at a reasonable price. Good stop while on vacation.

We came twice, first time we had good food and good service but the dining room air was stale and a noisy setting. Second time we decided to eat on the patio for better air and less noise. We were told that there were no reservations for patio seating. But we could go outside and take the first table available.... More

Great food and very friendly staff. The food was amazing, we had cheese curds and "bulldog bites" for an appetizer, sirloin and onion straws and an amazing horseradish sauce. I had the Bourbon Beef tips, cooked to perfection. My husband had his usual, a burger, BBQ, Bacon and Cheese. We shared an amazing homemade chocolate cake drenched in caramel with... More

Have always driven by this restaurant when driving from Duluth up the North Shore; and now will continue to drive by. Visited in mid-afternoon and service was very, very slow; food was so-so.

Stopped here because it was a 35 minute wait at Betty's Pies. Unfortunately took 35 minutes here just to be served. 2 of the 6 meals in my group were average or above. The others were well below average. Took a good hour for our food to come. Spent my Saturday sitting waiting for food to come in lieu of... More

I wish I could rave about this restaurant. Our server had a lot to put up with with us and did a great job. She was very accommodating. They do have a deck that you can eat outside in the summertime. I had their seafood pasta which was very heavy and cheesy. It was decent but a few hours later... More

We have been stopping here for lunch every summer for years on our North Shore excursions. And we always order a walleye sandwich, which isn't on the menu anymore, but is so awesome we request it, and they are gracious enough to make for us. We have had plenty of walleye sandwiches elsewhere but none come close to this one!... More

Our family has been vacationing on the North Shore of Lake Superior for decades. Black Wood's has been our favorite stop for authentic walleye dinners for many years. We've always had a wonderful experience dining here and enjoy both the food and the atmosphere. Our waitress, Mary, was great during our most recent visit. Black Wood's will always be a... More

I do not understand why people go to this type of place.......the food is overpriced, boring, uneventful, and sometimes just plain bad. They need a total revamp of their menu........this company also owns Tavern on the Hill and that menu is fabulous.......why can't they do the same here?

Stopped in over the weekend for lunch. They have added a couple new items to the menu. My wife had the Blackened Shrimp Avocado Salad which she raved about. I had the Ruben on Marble Rye which was stacked high and very good. We both had their Bloody Mary, also very good. Service was very good for a holiday weekend.
