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

Friendly, cozy like a neighborhood bar. Great for meeting friends or a lighter dinner. Their sandwich selection and quality are good plus the soups are well made.

Sir B's has been a local landmark for I don't know how many years. A great place to bring travelers to, sitting on the front deck enjoying the views of Lake Superior and Leif Erickson park, it's always been one of my favorites. Well now, Sir B's offers an additional service, delivery during the week to our local downtown area.... More

We love coming to Sir Ben's and we always do build your own sandwich. I love the focaccia bread, and their thai pepper mayo is great. They also have good homemade french silk pie. Their patio is great when it's nice outside and they have live music here often. This is usually where we take friends that are visiting Duluth... More

We showed up hungry and they did not disappoint! Artichoke dip and the Nachos are delicious and filling. The British Dip was flavorful and the Reuben was piled high with corned beef & kraut. Looking for something lighter? Try the Maple Harvest Salad. Wonderful meal and service
