We enjoy the original smoked salmon at least once a month, I always ask for one pound. This one person, a college aged male, told me that I couldn't get one pound. I was about to turn around a leave. Instead, I said I understood and yet he explained the concept of chunks of fish and it will be over... More

Get the fresh fish basket to go and take it on a picnic. Of ALL the places to eat in Duluth, this is my favorite! There are also daily specials, delicious cheeses, and olives!

It's kinda this little storefront in Canal that looks like a smoked fish stand. If you like smoked fish, you'll love this place.

We stopped at this place for lunch on our way up to the Gunflint Trail and on our way back home. The Silence of the Lambwich was so good, as was the Cajun Finn. Nice little patio for eating outdoors, too. Will definitely return next time we're headed up north.

I've travelled all over the world and Northern Waters Smokehouse is hard to top. As a fish lover, it is a Duluth essential. However, they offer other delicious cured meats and sandwiches. Enjoy!

I love walking to canal over my lunch break and getting one of their AMAZING sandwiches. I am so excited for their new location in Woodland!

I moved to Duluth this past year and always look forward to getting a Cajun Finn! Friendly service just remember there is limited seating and it does get busy during lunch rush...
