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

Shared both the Osso Bucco and King Fettuccine with my wife for our anniversary. So delicious! Bread and whipped butter is also soooo good! Atmosphere is romantic and warm. The floor spins the entire 360 degrees in about an hour and you can see such great views. Definitely a winner!

Ate here five days ago,excellent service,very knowledgeable and nice waiter!! The restaurant is revolving which makes for a spectacular view!!!! Very short wait time for our food,however food is nothing to brag about... I would consider visiting this restaurant again, but only for the view and not the food.

We came here for breakfast on a recommendation from our server the previous evening at a different establishment. The food was very average but the service was fantastic and the views can't be beat...It is a revolving restaurant!
