This restaurant has atmosphere, it is on the top floor of the Radisson Hotel and has a moving floor so you get a 360 degree view of the city and the harbor of Lake Superior. The menu is very upscale and the prices reflect it. We have gone there for dinner before and have been pleased. On this visit we... More

Overcast sky, but the view was still pretty amazing of the harbor and lift bridge. The service was good as we were served pretty quickly. Not many options for breakfast. They were out of two items by 10:30 (serving starts at 10:00). The hotel was full, so they should've had enough prepared. Food was mediocre at best. Which isn't a... More

This is very unique dining experience in Duluth and has amazing views. The food is a little overpriced in my opinion for what you get. It's good, just not great!

Shared a romantic dinner with my husband over Halloween weekend. We had never been in a rotating restaurant before so that part of the experience was very fun. Half of the time you have a great view of the lakefront. The other half is less exciting but a nice view of Duluth. Being a vegetarian it did not have as... More

We showed up for our 8:30 PM reservation on Saturday, and were escorted to a perfect little seating area for drinks and appetizers by a very friendly host. The view was spectacular, and the few people that were in the restaurant seemed to be having a good time. Sadly that is the extent of the good things I can say... More

We enjoyed the awesome lake view on a sunny fall day!! The breakfast was very good with lots of options. A little higher cost for a breakfast, but didn't mind with the spectacular views

When I have friends traveling to Duluth and they are looking for a cool dining experience, I recommend JJ Astor. The restaurant, at the top of the Radisson Hotel in Duluth, gives a panoramic view of the city, as the restaurant is continually revolving. Very cool!
