Good food, clean and happy environment. Probably the best fish sandwich in Minnesota. Onion rings that are wonderful. 'Must stop' on the way to the Range.

We travel through Duluth on our camping expeditions. We always stop at Gordies, and the Fish and chips are great. They have burgers, and malt and other treats. Great food, and a fun place to stop !

We have visited here a few summers, and we always enjoy going back. While it often seems overrun with people, once you order, you have your food almost faster than you can find a table! So don't let the crowds deter you. Old-fashioned burger joint...More
