We chose this restaurant only because our room in the hotel had no view of the lake, and we were not disappointed. During the meal, we were able to do a full revolution of the restaurant, hardly noticing that we were in motion the whole time. The food was excellent, and Cindy, our server, turned into a tour guide while... More

The rotating restaurant has the best views of the port, Ariel lift Bridge and the city surrounding the lake. Great food, good price and wonderful staff. Even if you're not staying at the Radisson I suggest checking this place out for dining. We had breakfast there but never got to see the view at night, which I'm sure is just... More

Did not like the "feeling" of the place. We left shortly after our water came out because the motion and sound was unsettling to us.

This restaurant was a hit with my family. The food is mix American/Italian, with a great bar and beautiful white tablecloth/dim lighting atmosphere. The best part, as you have read, is tehe view. 360 degrees of Duluth and the Harbor, with a great rotating floor that does not make you dizzy one bit. The food could have been less expensive,...

You can't get this view from any other restaurant in the city and it's a panaramic view. The restaurant sits on top of the Hotel and very slowly spins around while you are dining. The food is top notch high quality. An absolute must for visitors and residents.
