I don’t care about the food. Any place that cannot keep track of reservations WHEN THEY USE OPEN TABLE should be avoided. The Pickwick clearly has no one in charge who knows what they are doing.

The building is such a wonderful blend of old and new. Service always outstanding. Food so good from apps.to soups to entrees. I think the hidden gem in the menu is the pork chop.

The handmade jalapeño poppers are to die for! BBQ ribs were decent. The onions rings were really good. Red velvet was a little bland but the title cheesecake was amazing. Service was friendly and fast.

I think for a Saturday evening dinner I would opt for business casual.....a high quality pair of jeans and a dress shirt would be ok also.

The Pickwick is Duluth's landmark restaurant situated on the shore of Lake Superior. Best known for its steaks and seafood from the only indoor charcoal grill in the area. There are also great burgers and sandwiches for under $12. The banquet room accommodates up to 50 people and offers privacy for business or family occasions. The bar has been restored to its 1940 layout offering an energetic atmosphere for all ages. Two happy hours - before dinner and late night - keep the bar hopping from 4am until close. The dining rooms bring back the history of the Pickwick which has been operating since 1914. Fine dining is at its best with our excellent serving staff along with the creations of Chef Jake Sutula. Reservations are accepted. Come see why the Pickwick has been Duluth's place to be for nearly a century!
