Pretty nice little place in downtown Duluth. Kind of a old school high end Prohibition type of feel. 8 Ftigers beers on tap, first one I am having is very good. Waiting on some food now, menu looked pretty good - typical sandwiches and steaks with some misc additions.

This place was OK. They have Fitger’s beer, but if you follow the local beer scene, make it to Fitger’s once a year or so and check out their table at festivals, you are not going to find a new beer here, and it seems they do not bring Fitger’s more adventureous creations over here. I really like the ambiance, and bet it is even better in the evening, with the wood bar and dimly lit interior. Food is overpriced, my sandwhich was just ok and not particularly filling. ----Rarate Summer 2016. Much better experience this time. The food was considerably better. I also saw the rathskeller, and it was definitely one of the coolest places to have a drink I have ever seen. In the basement, the old jail in Duluth’s early days. The prison ambiance is long gone, and now it is a dimly lit bar that I understand is packed in the evenings. I will be back. I suggest considering a cocktail rather than beer.

Had read some of the reviews to learn of the rathskeller downstairs. Had I not known about it we would not have found it as there are no signs to indicate it’s even there. When you approach the entrance to Tycoon’s, there is a sign with an arrow leading upstairs to the street level restaurant. No signage to indicate anything about the rathskeller, even when you go downstairs. There was a doorman of sorts hanging out outside, though it was unclear what his job was. He really didn’t say anything to us. The space is memorable, with the original, exposed stone and brick walls, comfortable sofa chair seating, and a dark and intimate bar. Beer selection was what I would describe as good, but falls short of outstanding, but the service was very attentive.

I really had a good time here. The people were very friendly and the service was excellent. Kind of a retro 30’s feel to the main floor. Live band, high seat backs, and a small quaint bar. The real ambiance is in the cellar they call the Rathskeller. Takes you back to Prohibition with old brick walls and wooden beams. It was black beer Friday and the selection was fabulous. My drawback is that the food is just better than average. I’d come back here again though.

Best place besides Fitgers in Duluth. Very much worth a stop! (p.s. theres another section besides the part you walk into...get there)

Weird soulless artificial vibe. Kind of like being in a gold miner’s video game. They’ve got Fitger’s beer, which is great and the staff was friendly, but there’s something cavernous and cold about the atmosphere.

Very cool place, set in an "old time" theme from when Duluth was a growing city. Fitger’s beer (its owned by Fitger’s) makes the experience even better.
