We are lucky enough to have so many great restaurants in the Twin Ports and some have breathtaking views of the Lake or abundant outdoor seating in a relaxed atmosphere. With the season so short to dine outside and so many places to choose from, here are just a few options in Duluth.

    The Boat Club Restaurant and Bar

    Recently open it is the first Lakeside dining spot in the Historic Fitgers Brewery Complex. Watch the ships come in and out of the Harbor with tableside maps or the sailboat races from the courtyard. Fine dining at it's best. Website 600 East Superior Street Level 1

    Silos at Pier B Resort

    I actually got to experience the breathtaking views from the huge patio today, which is right on the water in the shadow of Bayfront Festival Park.  Being Duluth's only waterfront dining experience you literally cannot get any closer to the water unless you jump in. Silos has it's own marina with boat access to the restaurant, and Pier B Resort. The restaurant is set up so you do not have a bad seat inside or out. The food is fresh and delicious with the menu changing seasonally. Website 800 West Rail Road Street

    Little Angie's Cantina and Grill

    Located in the heart of Canal Park this is a great patio to enjoy all the hustle and bustle of the area, while sipping a margarita the size of your head, and enjoying a flaming hot Fajita. Ample parking is available across the street and tons of cute shops right around the corner! Plus the Grandmas Marathon Finish Line is right off the patio! Website 11 East Buchanan Street

    Mexico Lindo

    I will never tire of the view of Lake Superior from up high on the deck of Mexico Lindo in the beautiful Fitgers Brewery Complex. Sugary Margaritas to sip on during a warm summer night, bottomless tortilla chips and salsa, plus my favorite the Philly Cheesesteak Burrito. This view is second to none with the rail road tracks and Lakewalk below and a view of the lake for miles on either side. Website 600 East Superior Street  Top Floor

    Grandmas Saloon

    A Canal Park staple for so many years it's location in the shadow of the lift bridge gives way to some serious sites. The roof top deck is breathtaking whether just hanging with friends for cocktails, a quick lunch or sit down dinner. The portions are massive and inside the decor will keep you looking for hours.

    Endion Station

    This little gem is tucked away next to some of the hotels in Canal Park and is off a short winding road. The deck is warm and welcoming and the walk down to the lake is a nice big green lawn. Endion Station prides itself as being on the 'Corner of the Lake' serving a casual menu, Fitgers Brewhouse Craft Beer and an expansive Craft Cider Tap List. The large deck is also pet friendly which makes a great stop from the lakewalk.Website  200 Lake Place Drive in Duluth
