We came here for our first time for Valentine's day, and it made our night lovely. The food was amazing, we received complimentary champagne, there was a fantastic live band playing, and our server was very friendly. Don't forget to visit the elevator on the way out and see what is hidden on -1!

This new restaurant/bar on Superior St. has some good food, a pub like atmosphere and good locally brewed beers. I think the same people that own Fitger's Brew Pub, own this place, and I personally like the Fitger's location a little better. It's cozier, and with the creepy place down on the corner that sells "bath salts", we did see a few shady characters hanging around outside of Tycoons. Still, if Fitger's is overflowing, as it is usually, this is a close second. Opt for a table in the bar, the high backed booths are not my favorite and contributed to the not quite so cozy feel.

Duluth is a summer tourist town -- people flock to Canal Park to watch ships entering the port through the ship canal. If you decide to eat there, you get pretty much run-of-the mill burgers, fries, faux-Mexican, or other sandwich type food. If something beyond that interests you, try Tycoons. It is a restaurant with full service bar without the crowded hustle of other places. The location is an historic city hall building, carefully renovated by its owners. There is even a speak-easy in the basement. Local jazz or folk performers are booked for various night-time gigs, but if you don't like talking over music, a large part of the dining room is across the hallway from the bar. The food shows Duluth's heritage -- mussels in wine sauce (for the tycoons) and great burgers or pastas for the rest of us.

Had not planned on eating here, but our initial choice was serving brunch. We were having an adult lunch with beverages. I was able to find an option on the menu almost immediately. I got the hand-battered fish and it was to die for! My husband had the burger and swears it was the best burger he's ever had. We took a small tour of the upstairs after our meal and the private rooms available for parties our meetings are absolutely amazing! This place is a must do for food, drinks, our private events. What a gem for Duluth! We are so jealous we don't have something like this in our area. We will definitely be back again!

This place has a wonderful old look and feel. The food was very good. It's a bit more upscale but not overly much. Another quality choice restaurant for Duluth.
