“Dining at it's finest”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

I was introduced to the Wild Rice Burger here. It was phenomenal. As we traveled north we discovered that wild rice is a huge part of many menus up and down the north shore. All the food we had at Tycoon's was excellent.

“Nice Surprise in Downtown Duluth”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Fitger's Brewhouse had a long wait list so they suggested that we try their 'sister' restaurant, Tycoons. Are we glad that we did. What a great find in downtown Duluth. Our meals were excellent and the service was great. The only drawback, parking can be a challenge in downtown Duluth.

“Oktoberfest was killer!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Tycoon's had Oktoberfest last weekend, and if you missed it, well I am sorry. It was a total blast. There were folks (adults) of all ages having a great time. From the Polka band and brats on the first floor, to the basement with the Cherry Batch, to the upstairs banquet hall which they opened up with a photo booth, and games like hammerschlagen and pong, it was a great time, and the specials were stellar. Where else can you get a 1-liter stein of Fitger's beer for $10? I really hope they continue to do this for years to come, it was really well done.

For Tycoons in general, I enjoy the old-time feel and drink offerings, as well as the 'cave' which lends a really neat underground club vibe. Great lounge area!

“LOVE!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Great place to grab a drink or a bite to eat. This is the first place I've been to in Duluth that has various items that are vegetarian friendly. We've eaten here a handful of times and been more than satisfied every time. Make sure to check the downstairs out, it's an incredibly fun and relaxing environment.

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Enjoyed my lunch here so much, that I came back in the evening to visit the
underground bar. Had a great sandwich and even better pint of beer. Service was
good and prompt. We will definitely be back again!
