Drove by the restaurant and thought we would give this place a try. It is lovely inside with rich classy decor. That is the reason for the 3 stars. We chose the specials off the menu. You shouldn't go wrong then right? They ran out of the white fish so replaced it with another type. The other special was steak... More

The food was excellent. The food was delicious. The ambience was very nice and the view of Lake Superior topped it all off!

When I go to Duluth I really like to eat fresh fish from the lake. This restaurant has two choices. I had the Superior whitefish, served with mashed baby reds and asparagus, topped with lemon butter sauce with capers. It was simple, delicious and absolutely one of the best meals I have ever eaten. The staff was very friendly, the... More

Perfect meal with salmon on cedar and Brussel sprout side and a pasta santini for my wife. Mad Men Bourbon and Life Breeze drinks were wonderful. Waiter was helpful, music was relaxing, and the view of Superior is a bonus.

One of us had the Whitefish and the other the Rainbow Trout. We were very happy with our choices, served with delicious mashed red potatoes. We have never been disappointed in a meal at Black Woods. We love their meatloaf. It's the best anywhere, anytime, including home, one of our favorites for lunch.

While traveling with a group, we stopped by on a whim for lunch after a morning at the waterpark down the street. We couldn't have stumbled onto a better lunch if we had tried. I throughly enjoyed it. We had children with us, ranging from toddlers to grade-schoolers. I was concerned they would act up due to a little longer... More

This is one of those go-to places for us in Duluth. The atmosphere is old-wood, supper club. It's a little dark in the bar and interior dining rooms, but ask for window seating and you'll find a fantastic view of Lake Superior. The one draw to the bar, however, is the working model train, winding around the room, past various... More

The Lake Superior whitefish was "perched" atop a cup of mashed potatoes and a few thin sprigs of asparagus. The whole mass was swimming in some sort of sauce that was mostly melted butter. The potatoes were disintegrating into the grease. Release this catch!
