Duluth Grill

Reviewed By MNnortherner - Minnesota

When asked to list our favorite restaurants in Duluth, the Duluth Grill always makes the list -- whether breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you can't go wrong. Locally sourced foods with some great local goods for sale as a bonus (from soaps to teas to other fun gifts). With any dish, if you get the chance to try their grilled kale with curry sauce as the side, try it -- it is my side of choice even at breakfast now (although their red flannel hash is hard to beat)!

Red Mug Espresso LLC

Reviewed By MariaMag - Minnesota

Red Mug is great...nice place to hang out, great coffee, soup, desserts, etc. The food is great. I have been here many, many times and met people for music or coffee and dessert and really love to go here.

What I don't get...why is the entrance always dirty? When I was in there recently, I checked the outside stairway to see if the owner had cleaned it up. Were I an owner of a small, local coffee shop, I would make darn sure that it is spotless. This kind of thing will turn off some people.

When you walk down the outside entry stairs there are always cigarette butts, leaves and other garbage strewn along the stairway, and on the landing at the bottom. It doesn't seem like it would take much effort to sweep this once a week and maybe add some sort of decoration. Then, when I walked in this week, there were A LOT of dead leaves in the entranceway! It really looks bad.

To me, a small business owner should make extra effort to maintain standards of cleanliness. They have to do it at fast food restaurants...why not here? I think it makes a huge difference in repeat customers.

A Dozen Excuses

Reviewed By cmk421 - Duluth, Minnesota

After seeing A Dozen Excuse here I visited and found the owners to be super friendly and the best cinnamon bread ever! Fun to splurge on the goodies. A bit more than I am used to paying, but was worth the price. They also deliver to businesses which I found unusual in this age of bakeries, but would definetly recommend

Sweeden Sweets

Reviewed By Barry D - Superior, Wisconsin

I tried to enter a review over a year ago in the category :"Things to Do" in Superior, but TripAdvisor wouldn't accept it. Don't understand why, because this is not a restaurant. It is a great candy store, with lots of old-fashioned treasures, fresh chocolates, ice cream and more. Their website now says that they carry Sven and Ole's Pizza, which hails from Grand Marais on the North Shore, so I'll have to check that out sometime soon. This place is a feast for the eyes, especially for us old-timers who will see some types of candy that haven't been seen in decades.

Anchor Bar

Reviewed By Lsutgrs - Olive Branch, Mississippi

Quite a neat place to get a burger. Yes it’s a bar but feels more like people are there to eat more then drink. The burgers and fries are great. Fresh ground beef and fresh cut fries. Cheap place to eat but they only take cash. Double burger, fries and coke for less then 10$

Northern Waters Smokehaus

Reviewed By 8thgradeclass - Duluth, Minnesota

Northern Waters Smokehaus

Northern Waters Smokehaus is located on the main floor of the Dewitt-Seitz building in Canal Park. The business started in 2001. When they started, their space was very tiny, and they were smoking one fish at a time, and now they have a great business and are smoking multiple fish at a time.

The deli/restaurant is a smaller area, but has great food; you walk in, and to your right, the first thing you see is a deli of smoked meats and fish. Then you see the menu behind the deli, and you walk about ten steps to order your sandwich. The restaurant is small in size, so they have limited seating, about 10 bar stools to sit on and 2 tables in the hallway, and in summer outdoor seating on a patio with picnic tables. The colors and decorations go together well, and their smells are the best smells if you like the smell of smoked salmon and other fish. The atmosphere is welcoming, the lights are not too bright, but not too dim, the music is quiet but not too quiet, and it just has a fun atmosphere.

I would not recommend it if you are in a hurry, but if you have time, I would recommend it. The wait time depends on what time of day it is; if the time of day is lunch time, it about a 20-45 minute wait, but if it is later in the day, around after four it is a 5-10 minute wait.

The food there is delicious. So many flavors come into your mouth at the same time. My personal favorite is the cold Turkey sandwich at $9.25. It is a good price for a great sandwich. The sandwich contains stirato bread, smoked Turkey, Swiss cheese, lettuce, and craisin-walnut mayo sauce. They also offer different assortments of smoked meats and fish along with their sandwiches. Some things they offer are Lake Superior smoked lake trout, smoked salmon pate, porketta, smoked polish sausage, and dried-cured salamini. The price range for sandwiches is around 8-13 dollars.

Northern Waters Smokehaus is excellent with great service, great food, and friendly staff. It would be nice if it wasn’t a long wait time, but since they don’t have much staff, the time they can do it in is amazing. I would rate this restaurant 4 out of 5.

Reviewed By jpurvis5575 - Maple, Wisconsin

It is a large restaurant and was very busy. Is a child friendly place with great pizza ...and the lasagna was outstanding! The service team seems to be a little understaffed, as it takes a while when they are busy. The food is worth the wait in my opinion. The staff if very friendly and treat each customer well, when they get to you.

Our son and daughter in law took us here with our 2 year old grandson. Kyle was our server, did a perfect job, very attentive. The manager stop over to make sure everything’s as good..... and was it ever! I had the Kentucky hot brown, my daughter in law had the brisket Mac and cheese, my son oink and cheese grits, and my husband had the 1/2 chicken. Everything was hot, moist, large portions and served quickly....will definitely be back again!!!
