We had four drinks and two appetizers for under $30. Stopped in to quench a thirst and found it to be quite a surprise. Very fortunate to make this re-acquaintance. The last time I was here was 50 years ago. Some things better with age.

Our favorite rest stop for a beer and snack or burger after biking Munger or Western Waterfront Trail, or visiting the zoo. Your basic neighborhood bar in a neighborhood that used to have plenty more places like this. Note that they have one of the only spring smelt fries with locally caught fish — if you are here in late... More

This is a neighborhood bar and restaurant, has been in business for well over 75 years. Food is excellent, good service from the one waitress on duty. Seating for about 40 to 50 in the lunch room. Handicap accessible. Is across the street from the Duluth Zoo.

I live out east and rarely get out by the Duluth Zoo anymore.....and this place is about across from the zoo as I recall. Thanks for reminding me....I'll have to go and check this out again. Especially now with the road construction to start I imagine their business will be hurt somewhat. I'd rather support local small businesses than chains... More

This place has seen some remodeling done. Simple menu and the food was great. Prices aren't bad. Beer and wine are available but we did not imbibe. I think this would be called a diner, or greasy spoon. We enjoyed it very much. Service was great.

Went there for a Friday night fish fry. Advertises itself at Italian American but didn't see much that was Italian on the menu except for 2 spaghetti dishes. The fish - cod - was a little too done for my taste. Came with soup or salad or cole slaw. Seems like an old bar that has an extra room to... More

The Resteraunt stunk, and the food tasted like it came came from a cardboard box. The place was a hole in the wall too. Wouldnt recommend it. Go to Erbert and Gerbets down the street, better food for less money.
