The views are the selling point, but you won't be disappointed with the food. We had breakfast and I highly recommend the French Toast, as well as the omelets. The coffee was perfect. The waiter was attentive and knowledgeable.

This restaurant is at the top of the Radisson Hotel and rotates 360 degrees. We had Sunday brunch which was really excellent. The waitstaff knew the menu very well and was very attentive. As would be expected in Duluth, the coffee was excellent. The waitstaff also knew all of the buildings that came into view. This was a very nice touch, since we rotated through the entire panorama of Duluth. The restaurant recently re-opened after the flash flood in 2012.

Great view, got breakfast included with hotel package but we were hoping that the brunch would have started earlier on Sunday for us to travel out earlier. Everything was cooked as ordered and it was fairly quiet so it was a nice start to the day-we also did not feel rushed so that was a good thing too. All in all worth a visit. Slightly overpriced for our budget though if it would not have been included in the hotel package.

We went on a Saturday night hoping for great jazz, great views and great food. One of the 3 is all we could manage! No jazz the first weekend of October due to budget cutting and trying to sell the restaurant. It would appear they are also cutting staff because while our poor waitress worked her tail off she could not keep up and the service was slow. Not a huge deal since we were there to make the one hour trip around anyway. Sad to say it went about 3/4 around then stopped so my view was a pole. Drinks and appetizer was a far as we could go then we called it a night and went to elsewhere.
