One of my favorite places in Duluth. The food is amazing (try the Bison Burger) and the staff is attentive and outgoing! Black Woods accommodates groups of all ages and sizes, caters, and has awesome happy hours. Really nice atmosphere that is fancy yet casual. I always get the Fifth Amendment Martini and a BBQ Chicken Quesadilla at happy hour.

You must try the Barbecue Chicken Quesadillas. And top it off with a Colorado Bulldog made with root beer in lieu of Coke. Yum!

Mhmmm... Our BBQ Chicken Quesadilla with a Colorado Bulldog sounds de-lish :-)! Did you know that our 1919 Root Beer actually comes from a keg instead of out of the tap? That's the secret to it tasting SO good! Thank you for your review Nicole and for your continued business to our locally-owned restaurant! We greatly appreciate you choosing Black Woods and look forward to seeing you back in again soon!

While visiting Memorial weekend, we tried the location near our hotel(they gave us a coupon)in Proctor. We were seated promptly, the food was good(pretzels and cheese sooo good) and the waitress was pleasant.
The next night while in Duluth, we decided to eat there again since it was quite late and not much else was open. Other than the beautiful view of lake superior, it was less than impressive. I'll just say I'm glad we didn't visit this location the 1st night in town because we wouldn't have tried it for a 2nd time. The wait to be seated was ok, but the waitress didn't come to our table for about 15 minutes. Thankfully another waitress noticed and got us some water at least. Once she did come, she was short and didn't even ask us what we wanted to drink. She just asked us what we wanted to eat. She missed out on some easy sells. The 2nd trip left a lot to be desired, but We will likely try it again since the 1st experience was good.

Megan, thank you so much for sharing both your experiences with us to our Proctor and our Duluth Black Woods locations. We are so disappointed to hear that your second trip resulted in such a negative experience due to the service that you received - this is not how our guests should be treated in our restaurant, and so for that, we are deeply sorry. We would love an opportunity to speak with you directly about your visit to both of our locations and learn more about them. If you would, please send the best number to reach you at to catherinec@blackwoods.com - we would love to have another opportunity to serve you the five-star experience that we expect our guests in the future. Thank you for your honesty and for your business. We look forward to speaking with you soon.

Hole we usually drive right by several times a year, this time we decided to stop on the way to Minneapolis. Lauren provided great service and the food arrived in a timely fashion. Very good food! We will be back!
