“Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Black Woods popped up on TripAdvisor as being near our location as we traveled through town, so we decided to give it a try for lunch. We were pleased - the atmosphere is cozy, the food delicious, the service efficient, and the prices were reasonable. There's also a great view of Lake Superior.

“Comfortable Surroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

My wife and I went to the Black Woods for the first time. We had the blackened Walleye and London Road Broil. Both were quite good and were visually pleasing. The surroundings were a little noisy but the decor brought us back to a comfortable pub (dark wood and dark furniture. We plan to visit this again when we are back in Duluth.

“We always go back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

I have dined at Blackwoods in Duluth countless times because of the excellence of well, everything, and did so recently and again... Wow!
We had Nicole as a server and she did an outstanding job with attentiveness, accuracy, accommodations, friendliness and overall professionalism... Blackwoods should be proud!
We ordered two flatbreads, two walleyes, a salad and the meatloaf- all excellent choices! I would definitely pick this as a top favorite in Duluth.

“Good food, nice view, but I miss my old favorite dessert!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

I've been eating here going back to the 90's when I first found it. Haven't had a chance to stop in since moving south back in 2002. So I had to stop in when in Duluth on business recently. The walleye is as good as I remember it being, and the waitress was great. Sadly, my favorite old dessert, a 3 layer chocolate torte, is no longer on the menu and apparently hasn't been for some time since the waitress had never heard of it.
