Ordered at counter, then ordered beer at bar ( fantastic selection), then sat in really fun and laid back atmosphere, and server brought you food and waters. I generally hate sandwiches and sandwich shops, but this place hit a home run. Fantastic food, service was " go out of their way" good.

Stopped by for lunch with 7 people making up 4 generations of our family. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. I have been here several times in the past year, and while we always enjoy eating here, this time they went above and beyond. Fro example, when we realized we forgot to bring milk with for my two year... More

Had lunch here on the outdoor deck. It was a beautiful day but not a beautiful experience. First off, we sat in the front outdoor seating area so we could see Lake Superior. We soon realized that wasn't the smartest idea as the road is quite close so it made for a noisy time, especially since it was a Friday... More

If you have never been here before here is an important tip: you order your food at the counter by the bar, they issue you a number, you find your seat, and they bring the food to you. We were a bit confused when we got there as it was our first time, but locals quickly filled us in. Second... More

Sir Ben's is in a beautiful location- away from downtown but right off the lakeshore walk with Lake Superior views from the deck and bar area. We went on a Thursday for lunch, which was perfect for a no-crowds lunch followed by a lovely stroll near the lake. Beer selection is extensive and wisely chosen. This is not a brewpub,... More

We stopped in for a late lunch after a day of hiking on a beautiful late spring day. We were able to score a table outside in the shade with a great view of Lake Superior. We ordered an order of the Pesto Bruschetta, which was enough for 6 and a chicken, artichoke and bacon sandwich. Both were excellent and... More

A friend was up from the cities and I wanted to give her a "unique to Duluth" dining experience. What a gem Sir Ben's is. We each had the Sir Melt and once again I wasn't disappointed!
