“The Perfect Post-Boundary Waters Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

We came out of a week long trip to the Boundary Waters looking for a burger and a beer. A quick look at Trip Advisor for help led us to Fitgers. Excellent choice of beer; the Irish Stout was exceptional. The guys ordered the Highland beef burger and I had the wild rice veggie burger pub style (nushrooms, grilled onions and chipotle mayo). Hubby said it was the best burger he's ever eaten, but admitted the past 7 days of dehydrated food may have had some influence. That's still high praise coming from him. The veggie burger was delicious due to the texture of the wild rice. The menu included many, many burger options, including elk and whitefish varieties. There were also several great salad options (house-made dressings a plus!) and a number of vegetarian choices. Add exceptional service and we couldn't have been more satisfied.

“Good Food, Good Beer, Nice location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Was in Duluth a week or so back and had dinner with an work associate at Fitger's Brewhouse and Grille. Tried a couple of their brews beforehand at their pub across from the restaurant. Bartender (young lady) wasn't familiar with a "black and tan" so I had to sort of "educate" her on same, Beers were good, nice hoppy character, their Irish Stout was quite good, a bit heavy on the black malt so it had more of the burnt character. Had the elk burger in their restaurant, was quite pleased with it.

I'd go back and would recommend this to friends to try.

“If you like brew pubs, you'll like this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Great fish tacos and other food good too. My husband liked the beer. We were on lake walk, got off at Fitger's and headed for the second floor brew house. Good choice. Friendly, capable service. Crowded but they handled the crowd well.

“Great food - good choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

We really enjoyed our meal here - we ordered for opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of food (I had a chicken salad while my husband had an elk burger with beer battered fries!) and the quality of both meals was spot on and great value for money too.

“Solid service, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

Visited late in the evening for dinner. The service was very good...our server ran four separate tabs for us and got everything right. I had the vegetables for an appetizer, the fish tacos for my main dish, and split the carrot cake for dessert. All of the food was very good quality, fresh, and nicely presented.

I have eaten at Fitger's during business travel several times in the last year, and I have had a consistently very good experience.
