The view is outstanding from this restaurant. Service was excellent. We really enjoyed the Shrimp Tempura and Walleye dinner. A very convenient restaurant to eat in while you are staying at the Radisson.

This revolving restaurant features beautiful views of the city and Lake Superior. The experience of eating in a revolving restaurant makes it all that much better! We ate breakfast here which was delicious and reasonably priced. The service was great - timely and very friendly servers! Can't wait to go back to Duluth so we can eat dinner while overlooking...

Excellent food, atmosphere and view. Please bring back the lamb chop appetizer. And the jazz band. The overall experience was great and we recommend JJ's to visitors from out of town.

Traveled to Duluth as my wife is running in the 40th running of Grandma's marathon. After traveling all day, we went to JJ Astor's in the Radisson for dinner. First off it offers a wonderful panoramic view of the Duluth waterfront ... And provided a great atmosphere for dinner. Our hostess, Cindy provided great service throughout the meal. My wife...

This is a great place to end your day! The rotating top of the Radisson Hotel gives you the chance to get a full view of Duluth. The drinks are fairly priced and refreshing (the Painkiller is worth a try). We had dinner elsewhere before we arrived, but will definitely put this on the list for next trip.

From the song lyric, “Dance, ten, Looks, three -That ain't it, kid!” The beautiful view and surroundings still do not make up for an overall dismal food experience. We gave this place another shot when in Duluth arriving on the Friends of the 261 Steam Train excursion this past Saturday. We ate here years ago and had bad food and... More

The view could not be better; it is such a panoramic display of Duluth by day or night. Unfortunately it ends there. It starts with the surly obnoxious bartender who doesn’t greet you and is talking loudly into the ear of the hostess on the phone asking the person on the other end of the phone to repeat themselves because...
