First off, staff are doing their best with what they are given. But it's clear that the owners of the hotel do not reinvest. The restaurant has been given an updated look, but still suffers. Food is considered good by quite a few people, but...More

Rapidly seated. Waitress Candice gave fantastic recommendation on meals. Food was very good and rotating view of the harbor and city were a highlight of the stay in Duluth.

We checked into the hotel (Radisson) right around 2:15. They said the rotating rooftop bar was closing from 3-5. We left our bags in the car and decided to grab a quick drink. The bar is located in the non-rotating part, which seems to defeat...More

Food was great for a special occasion, but the service not so much. When your bill is in the hundreds you expect better. The service at Loui’s cafe in Duluth is so good and the food matches. Go there!

This is a Radisson hotel restaurant, so the food is good, but not excellent. But, they offer a capable bar, professional servers, white linen and an amazing view of the harbor and city. Take your lover there for a martini at sunset & stay for...More

I'll admit. I love the view and the novelty experience. It's great especially for visitors. However, the quality of food and the service has not been adequate for what this fine dining experience should deliver. The food quality and experience is mediocre compared to what...More

We actually ate here twice during our stay at the Radisson. Once for dinner and then for breakfast. Food and drinks were very good but view was awesome especially at night.

You go here for the view. The food is good but nothing exceptional. And they aren’t afraid to charge for it. $18 burgers. The burger was more than the crab cakes. The same price as the scallops. To be fair we did just go up...More

Wow! The restaurant is extremely fancy with prices to match, but the $50 gift certificate from the hotel as part of our Romance Package helped a great deal and paid for almost everything. The walleye wild rice soup was to die for...and the walleye itself...More
