Bought some smoked whitefish to go. Tasty, but odd: when I opened the package later on, there were two fish heads in the package. Could the second one been added in to increase the price (it was sold by the pound)? Though the fish was good, I probably won't be back.

We second, third and fourth all the great reviews of the food here. The pastrami sandwich I got was excellent. My wife and daughter loved their orders. We picked up some fish to take along for later, which was also really good. It is clearly popular with locals and visitors alike: expect a wait and to find seating out in... More

This was 2 excellent sandwiches, after we finally found the place (damn google maps). There is almost no seating inside and the line does form outside the deli for lunch. Fortunately it was a beautiful day and there are tables right outside. I would not miss another chance to eat here. There are about 12-15 sandwiches to pick from and... More

We bought some salmon, trout, the cajun finn sandwich, a salad, some jalapeño brats & some bison pastrami for our trip up to the North Shore and for lunch. This was awesome. The smoked fish was awesome, you can tell they know what they are doing because their isn't the enzyme on the fish that a lot of places fail... More

I had been hearing people rave about this place and how awesome it is. After attending a recent conference in Duluth, I decided I would stop in before heading home. I arrived about midday lunchtime, and the waiting line was loooong, out the door and down the hall. I was not here for a lunch, I just wanted to buy... More

I had the first time the pulled pork, then second time salmon bagel sandwich. The pulled pork sandwich is a little spicy so warning to people sensitive but I thought it was AMAZING. Best pulled pork I've ever had. There was a long line but it went fast and was worth the wait. It is a little crammed in the... More

Went here on a friend's recommendation… so glad I made the time to stop! I got three different kinds of smoked salmon - black pepper, dill and original - and all three were great. By far the best smoked salmon I've ever had. I actually walked out after getting my salmon, made it as far as a block, and then... More

I'm not usually one to step outside my comfort zone. I'm also not really a fish enthusiast, so I ordered the Buffalo 06'. It was absolutely perfect! Probably one of the best sandwiches I've had. I would highly recommend trying this place. Don't let the looks deceive you. It's worth your time.

This small restaurant in Canal park is a great spot to get a delicious sandwich or smoked fish to go. Great value for super tasty food!
