My husband and I decided to check this place out, since we were staying at the Radisson. We went on a Thursday night and went with the half price wine special. The best surprise was that my husband did not know it was a revolving restaurant, so he was pretty in awe of that. I had been here before, but... More

Shared both the Osso Bucco and King Fettuccine with my wife for our anniversary. So delicious! Bread and whipped butter is also soooo good! Atmosphere is romantic and warm. The floor spins the entire 360 degrees in about an hour and you can see such great views. Definitely a winner!

Ate here five days ago,excellent service,very knowledgeable and nice waiter!! The restaurant is revolving which makes for a spectacular view!!!! Very short wait time for our food,however food is nothing to brag about... I would consider visiting this restaurant again, but only for the view and not the food.

We came here for breakfast on a recommendation from our server the previous evening at a different establishment. The food was very average but the service was fantastic and the views can't be beat...It is a revolving restaurant!

Tor of the Harbor holds a special place in my heart, and what a surprise...some of the best tasting food I've had in this city! The 16ounce steak, classic walleye and blackberry salad are amazing! Enjoyed a romantic meal with great service, professional servers thank you! I recommend taking someone special and check out the moon over the lake, the... More

We went there looking for great dining experience. We had a reservation, but we waited 30 minutes to be seated. After finally settling into our seats, we explained to the waitress some of the dietary restrictions we had. She reassured us she would make sure that our order didn't include any of the restricted items. One of the dishes definitely... More

Small, expensive menu. Service is hit and miss. Go for the views of Duluth during Bentlyville or summer time lake and Duluth scenes.

The food is average. So if you're looking for something spectacular to eat, select another place to go, but for a really great view as priority, go here. They have a full bar. It is a good place to go with friends, business meetings, or even solo. Staff is friendly. It's a bit chilly by the windows in the winter... More

The food is pretty expensive for what you get but the view is breathtaking......any season you visit. The entire restaurant rotates so you get a 360 degree view of the city and harbor while you are eating your meal. About the time you are finished, the rotation has about returned to where you started.

Went for dinner on a visit to Duluth. Excellent menu and food was great. Our waitress was Cindy and she did a great job. Went out of there way to make drinks not on the menu. Very enjoyable.
