Great lunch options! The Tuna Tacos were a perfect light lunch! The avocado egg sandwich was delicious, as were their tasty fries. You're going for a good meal, so be prepared to pay. Well worth the price! Their more $ meals looked delicious!

Food was wonderful! Staff were friendly. Only complaint was the knife. The "steak" knifes looked like butter knifes & where probably just as sharp. Made it hard to eat the meat.

Went for dinner while visiting Duluth due to the ratings on this place. Prices for dinner are really high for what you get. I have no problem paying $100 for dinner for two if its a great place, but this misses on value and food....More
