“Good place to dine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

We couldn't get a table the first night we tried so we attempted a second evening when we were more successful in securing a high top in the bar area.

There was a good choice and we opted for fish (walleye) fillets with French fries and home made tartare sauce. Very tasty and filling. The on site beers were excellent and our server was happy to bring us 2 samples to choose from. We both went for the Pilsner which was light and refreshing.

The only possible down side is that it is a bit noisy so not the place for in depth conversations however a good option in the Canal Park area.

“We love places like this!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

We tend to seek out pub-style or microbrewery restaurants, especially within walking distance of our hotel, and this one fit the bill perfectly! The food was very good. We were attracted by the cheese/ale soup, which was very good, but not as thick or tasty as another establishment earlier in our trip. The pale ale was also very good. We were seated with a view to Lake Superior. It was not very warm that day, so outside seating was not desirable, although it was available. They also had a large fire pit going that would seat about 8 people around it comfortably. The service was fabulous! If we ever get back to Duluth, we will come here again.

“Duluth Brewry”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013 via mobile

Fits mold of new, casual, upscale brewpubs. Beer is great quality and usually have nice selection. Food is great for pub. Clean fun place that you cannot beat in location as it overlooks Lake Superior! Must stop for at least a beer when in town!

“Nicely crafted craft brewery in Canal Park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Beautiful views of the Superior await while you sip hand crafted brews and munch on homemade food. The service is a bit disorganized but not enough to discourage another trip. If you're a fan of beer ( who isn't ?) and you're in or traveling through Duluth, this local locale is a must stop.

“Need to make print on menus larger for us old folks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

Fun atmosphere with great service! Did beer tasting of 8 small samples. French fries best I've had anywhere! Suggest you put your name on wait list for dining table and go straight to bar and watch for table to open up.
