“Unpretentious down-home quality.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Located in a former chain-restaurant building next to a motel in working-class South Duluth, this unprepossessing place has excellent, fresh cuisine for very reasonable prices. Service is friendly and easy. Great value; definitely on the short list of best places to dine in Duluth.

“My favorite restaurant ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

There are gardens all over the parking lot and on the roof that provide produce for the restaurant. Everything is home made (even the ketchup!). Their menu is large. They have traditional menu items like burgers, lasagna, meat loaf, but also have lots of unique things, including plenty of items for vegetarians, vegans, and gluten-free diets. They also contribute to the community, which is great. Additionally, they sell a few locally made items at the counter. Breakfast is served all day. It is conveniently located next to Interstate 35 for those just passing through Duluth.

“Go early, place fills crazy fast for a reason!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

MUST GO HERE! Doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't let that fool you. Very unique menu. Caters well to vegetarian, vegans, gluten free and carnivores alike!!!! Very local (ingredients from the parking lot gardens even!!)!. The whitefish was terrific. The capprese salad was amazing (the balsamic vinaigrette was to die for!!). The Bisapeno-Pepper Burger was awesome! Service was very attentive and helpful. Not one negative. A must dine at while in Duluth!

Go with a large appetite as the meals are huge! Large menu with many choices for all types of diners. Food is locally sourced. We have eaten here twice and enjoyed both meals.

“Definitely worth seeking out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

We went to the Duluth Grill at the recommendation of a friend. The motto on their shirts is local, fresh, and organic. How fresh? Well, they have a garden at the side of the parking lot and to the side as you walk to the front door. It’s a pretty large restaurant and although not lunchtime yet, it was almost full. The menu is large and ranges from bacon and eggs to fish tacos. My wife had the Eggs Benedict which she said was wonderful and I had the Corn Beef Hash skillet. While not the best I’ve had, it was very good (a higher corn beef quotient would have put it at #1). NOTE: as part of the skillet, you get fresh fruit, toast with homemade peanut and jelly or a cinnamon bun. TRUST me on this, get the cinnamon bun. It’s ginormous, incredibly light and fluffy and absolutely delicious. Our server, Carol, was quick, friendly and efficient. She also gave us a description on some of the art pieces that are all over the wall and told us that there are bee keepers on the ceiling making honey, in addition to some of the renovations that were ongoing. The size of our dishes and others, that we saw, ranged from average to large. Prices are average, and given the size of the some of the dishes we saw going by, would be considered to be on the lowish side. I cannot believe it’s taken us this long to get here. I cannot wait to go back. This is a must go-to restaurant in my opinion.
