Great Service and Prices

Everyone was so friendly! Even though we visited just before closing, they welcomed us in and joked around with us while we asked our questions. Bought some things for very good prices. Even the chef from a very reputable restaurant across the hall from them came in to buy.

I had the Cajun Finn sandwich. Salmon and cream cheese? I was skeptical and then I had a bite. Easily one of the best sandwiches I've ever had! It had a little heat to it too, it was different from anything I've ever had and was absolutely delicious! If you're in the Canal Park area of Duluth and love fish,... More

If I'm ever in Duluth again this will be my first stop! My biggest disappointment is that we found this place on the day before we were leaving. The smoked meats are incredible and the Cajun Finn sandwich was mouth wateringly delicious!

My wife and I visited while traveling. This restaurant is basically a sandwich shop. We both chose salmon sandwiches and after a 10 minute wait we took our food to an outdoor seating area. First, the salmon. It was excellent with a somewhat faint taste of smoke and fish...also superbly moist and tender. But there's the issue. The salmon was... More

We had seen this place on diners drive-ins and dives. After stopping in Duluth for a day trip, we ran into this very small very fantastic Smokery. The trout and the salmon are fantastic. They also have some great cheeses. We tried the Cajun Salmon, the trout, and the whitefish. My husband devoured the trout in the caron the way... More

While our 12 year old was content to get a subway that you can see out the window of Northern Waters, the rest of us loved our sandwiches here. We will go back, we will recommend to others, etc. The Sitka & Cajun Finn were FANTASTIC. A fresh mix of flavors. A bit of a pain to park and go... More

We had the Cajun Finn and the Pastrami Mommy. Both really good. The Cajun Finn was one of the best sandwiches i've ever tasted. Such delicious smoked salmon, perfect amount of everything else, seriously good. The Pastrami was also good, probably better than I give credit for due to how good the Cajun Finn was. Great spot!! I want to... More

We read about this place in Tripadvisor and, as we were in the area to see the museum, decided to try it out. We got there around 10:30. Good thing because, about 20 minutes later, the line was 20 people long. My wife ordered the NORTHERN BAGEL (Haus-smoked Traditional Atlantic Salmon is layered with a very healthy dose of green...
