I finally got the opportunity to pay off a longstanding debt that I owed to my cousin so my wife and I met him for dinner recently at the Pickwick. It had been about 10 years since I was last in Duluth and had the opportunity to enjoy this classic and historic restaurant. Most of my comments will be positive but there will be one very important negative comment.
The atmosphere and ambiance of the Pickwick is special. The service we received was also excellent and extremely fast. All of the wait staff that attended us were courteous and friendly. The salads served at the Pickwick are fantastic....in the top 2% of all of my restaurant experiences. I had their famous onion rings (still very good) and the others in our party had the wild rice as their side dish (also an excellent option). My filet was a quality piece of beef and was tasty.....but here comes my negative comment. The chef(s) need to become much more precise in cooking the steaks to the requested degree. As I always do in a high quality restaurant, I ordered my steak medium rare. My filet was cooked to a medium degree and that is being very generous! For what the Pickwick charges I expect my steak to be cooked absolutely perfect.....it wasn't and that made it drier and less flavorful then it should have been.
