I've heard rave reviews for years about this place but found it to be just OK. I've eaten better meals on the north shore. The lobster roll special was good, but nothing special. That seemed true of the whole meal: good, but nothing special.

This is my go-to place to impress visitors for lunch or dinner. The food is consistently great and fresh. Try starting with the sashimi tacos or asparagus galette. Nice wine list.

We discovered this place just last Fall even though we go "Up North" a couple times a year. From now on we will take the Scenic Route into/out of Duluth at least once a trip. The menu is thoughtful and incorporates local and seasonal foods. The preparation is bright and inspiring. This place could hold its own in any "foodie"... More

The food was wonderful, exciting and different. We were thrown by the name of the restaurant and expected a bit more of a relaxed atmosphere. But we are foodies, so we were excited to try some of the interesting fare. It isn't cheap, but they do offer some mouth watering sandwich options if you don't want to spend to much... More

We are very, very happy we planned to eat at New Scenic Restaurant. Recommendations from friends said it was the BEST. It was. Food was fabulous! Sitting at the fire in the comfy chairs while being served wine, priceless.
