My meal was very good. The outdoor seating with a distant view of Lake Superior was pleasant. The service was a bit slow; maybe its just intended to be relaxing.

I've been to this restaurant many times for business in the last few years -- the restaurant is attractive, the location is good, so it is a default choice of many. I appreciate the restaurant's effort to serve locally sourced foods, and the menu looks interesting. Sometimes the food and service is good.

However, in my view this restaurant far too often serves mediocre food at a premium price. The service is slow maybe 40% of the times I've been there, and the wait for the check is a long wait the vast majority of times I've been there. The reviewer (YassasMpls) who described the service as "deeply indifferent and incompetent" didn't just hit the restaurant on the odd bad day -- that's the way it is at Sara's Table all too often.

Want locally sourced food in Duluth? Go to the Duluth Grill instead. Excellent value, the food is way better, and the service is prompt and helpful.

chester wedges with harissa aoli are my new favorite addiction, an apple blueberry banana peach smoothie with a fresh salad YUM.. the Food Network star their homemade cranberry wild rice french toast is so moist and filling. GLUTEN FREE BREAD THAT ISNT DRY?!?! yes please, and made in house. oh wait the stout maple syrup .. I can't stop there ?? the charcuterie plate is perfect for a date night. really i've been eating here for years and it is still my favorite. dog friendly balcony to eat outdoors.. library with books, fireplace in the winter. separate bar to dine and drink from the restaurant. the bar is intimate and cozy. thanks at sara's table / chester creek cafe!!

Up until 3:30 on Saturday it is breakfast and brunch from the left side of the menu. That was OK, we tried a veggie burger that was excellent. Good selection of local beers and the Bloody Mary was superb. Save room for pie! Comfortable room with tons of books all around. Nice part of town and a big parking lot to make it easy.

After waiting nearly an hour, both at the front of Sara's Table restaurant and in a booth, on a weekday afternoon after the lunch rush, we finally left the restaurant. No food had made it to our table, and by this time we were not just annoyed by the deeply indifferent and incompetent service, we were insulted. They had accomplished the nearly impossible task of making customers who never had the chance to taste their food, leave with a bad taste in their mouths.
We have friends in the restaurant business and try to see the daily restaurant challenges from the service side of things. In this case, empathy turned to exasperation at Sara's Table. Good luck if you arrive there hungry, or have something to do the rest of the day.
