“Love this place”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

We live in Duluth and eat here every once in a while. It is a place we take out of town visitors. The view and the atmosphere lend to the charm. They have a train that runs through the restaurant along the top of the walls. Our grandson loved that when he was small. The outdoor seating in the summer is great, so much so that we are again holding one of our kids wedding rehearsal dinners there. They are very accommodating. The meatloaf with the glaze is so goooood!!!!. The bloody mary is a garden in a glass with a fresh shrimp...awesome!

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

One of the best Reuben sandwiches I've ever had. The salads are super fresh and the general atmosphere is warm and inviting. I've ordered Reuben sandwiches at many different places but Blackwoods can't be beat.

Reviewed February 14, 2014

The atmosphere was great, loved the fact that you felt comfortable dressed up or down, service was great as well. What can't I say about the food, mouthwatering from the appetizer down to the main course. I can't rave enough about the prime rib. I will definitely be going again!!!!

“nice place, nice people, just can't recommend”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

I don't know - I'm sure the culinary staff varies - but the top sirloin was extremely tough, the walleye was greasy (seemed to have been frozen). Mixed drink was mostly mix, the wine was good. Service was pretty good, key lime dessert was excellent. Really like the place/setting and I'd like to recommend, but I won't be back...
