I've been going to the revolving restaurant on top of the Duluth Radisson since I was a young girl. Back then it was something like a Perkins. JJ Astor has elevated this unique place to the level of experience that it deserves. Nowhere else in the world can you sit 16 stories above the Duluth Harbor on the largest lake... More

I visited the restaurant for dinner while stayin at the restaurant and ordered the filet mignon medium to medium well. When it came it was very well done. I'm not usually one to send my food back but the waiter commented that it looked over done and offered to have them make another for me. He said he was going... More

With the view of Duluth and Lake Superior and the menu, I really wanted to like this restaurant. My husband and I had reservations for dinner to celebrate his birthday. After a day of hiking, we were excited to indulge in our steak dinner and enjoy the view and ambiance. The service was okay, average, nothing outstanding; the food -... More

This revolving restaurant sits atop the Radisson Hotel in downtown Duluth. The menu items are expensive but the ambience is well worth the additional cost. Our foot was delicious but my soup was barely warm. Our server was very friendly and conversational. Definitely a dining experience.

On the 15th floor of the Radisson is a wonderful restaurant that slowly rotates while you dine. We had dinner and breakfast the next morning here and enjoyed great food, wonderful service and the most amazing views of Lake Superior and Duluth area. For dinner try to get there to enjoy the sunset because the light is amazing.

A friend and I dined here Saturday, April 1 and have high praise for this venue. I enjoyed a delicious blackberry salad and the house soup which was a kale-based veggie soup. My friend had the blue cheese walleye and she said it was incredible! I tried a taste and I concur. The service was very good and of course... More

We have been to the Radisson to spend the night and always eat at JJ Astors. What a wonderful experience, relaxing, perfect atmosphere. We have been there for dinner and breakfast. If you have not gone to JJ Astors yet it is a must experience in Duluth. Incredible food and great views of the area.

My husband and I decided to check this place out, since we were staying at the Radisson. We went on a Thursday night and went with the half price wine special. The best surprise was that my husband did not know it was a revolving restaurant, so he was pretty in awe of that. I had been here before, but... More
