It is a tradition for my family and friends to stop here for lunch on the way to Grand Marais. I always order the avacado bacon sandwich with all the trimmings. I was surprised that this time it was toasted, which I did not like as much. Good coffee. I liked the former way of first ordering the sandwich, watching... More

Looking for light lunch got soup and salad combo-turkey wrap and butternut soup. Good pair! Lots of other sandwiches and nachos looked good. Comfortable wooden interior.

We ate here while visiting my sister-in-law and it was wonderful. The staff was friendly and incredibly helpful in selecting beer. The food was delicious and far from basic! Lots of menu options so everyone was happy. We will definitely come back here every time we visit!

Stopped here for lunch on way up to North Shore for weekend. Great location & environment (great window table views of lake Superior), great sandwiches, great selection of local craft brews--along with a great bloody mary. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Recommend this place. the Cuban sandwich was terrific; the Rueben was nothing special but good.

Great place for a sandwich and a beer. Outstanding beer selection that has 25+ tap lines with many unique beers from smaller craft breweries. If you are looking for deep fried food you will NOT get it here. Great sandwiches, wraps and soups. Located on Superior Street with a great view of Lake Superior from restaurant and when weather is... More

I recently called to buy a gift card for friends of mine from St. Paul who are spending time at St. Mary's Hospital due to their daughter's unfortunate accident. My hope was that they could get away for a brief respite and some non-hospital food. I spoke with Josh who kindly, and without hesitation, agreed to deliver the purchased gift... More

We enjoyed several meals here during our stay in Duluth. Delicious sandwiches and a large selection of beer. We happened upon a night where local musicians were enjoying making music and singing together...which made the evening feel like we were in a European pub! Highly recommend!

Our sandwiches were great - loved the fresh bread. A lot of the other food looked really good as it passed by so I would certainly go back and try the nachos or the pizza. A group of ragtime piano players met there and we had live music for lunch. It was a nice touch. You need to order your... More

If you want a sense of Duluth culture and cuisine, this is the place to go. This pub-style eatery give you a great view of the lake, choice local brews and tasty food. Order at the bar, take your drink and be seated as they prepare your food. Wait time is normal as you survey the locals and tap your... More
