If you want a sense of Duluth culture and cuisine, this is the place to go. This pub-style eatery give you a great view of the lake, choice local brews and tasty food. Order at the bar, take your drink and be seated as they prepare your food. Wait time is normal as you survey the locals and tap your... More

Friendly, cozy like a neighborhood bar. Great for meeting friends or a lighter dinner. Their sandwich selection and quality are good plus the soups are well made.

Sir B's has been a local landmark for I don't know how many years. A great place to bring travelers to, sitting on the front deck enjoying the views of Lake Superior and Leif Erickson park, it's always been one of my favorites. Well now, Sir B's offers an additional service, delivery during the week to our local downtown area.... More

We love coming to Sir Ben's and we always do build your own sandwich. I love the focaccia bread, and their thai pepper mayo is great. They also have good homemade french silk pie. Their patio is great when it's nice outside and they have live music here often. This is usually where we take friends that are visiting Duluth... More

We showed up hungry and they did not disappoint! Artichoke dip and the Nachos are delicious and filling. The British Dip was flavorful and the Reuben was piled high with corned beef & kraut. Looking for something lighter? Try the Maple Harvest Salad. Wonderful meal and service

The ambiance is good. The service is very friendly. But when they couldn't get my meal right twice (no meat or onions on a salad), I was underwhelmed. My fellow diners enjoyed their food, however. Sir Ben's has been here for decades and often has live music.

As a college student almost 20 years ago, I loved the atmosphere and vibe at Sir Ben's. My group of friends met there at least once a week for a delicious sandwich, a beer and a welcoming pub environment. Over the years, the food has gotten better, the taps have gotten better and the warm, welcoming vibe has remained firmly... More

Such a wonderful diversion from chain places. I had the squash soup and it might be the best soup I have ever tasted! Also, the bacon guacamole sandwich is freaky good! The great part of the sandwiches is that you can build it the way you want it from bread to vegetables, etc. They also have a huge selection of... More
