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!

About 5 years ago, we ate several times over a single weekend at this sandwich shop. Since then, we have ordered their products several times. They make a great gift for those tough to buy for folks. Our daughter loves their smoked salmon for parties, and we are all big fans of their bison pastrami -- there's just no fat... More

It's worth waiting in line for. The smoked salmon was divine. We liked it so much, we had to go back for a second visit.

I was so excited to get some smoked fish. In the end, I left a bit disappointed. The salmon was a bit fishy to me. The trout was pretty good, however. Overall, it was ok, but for the price, I don't think I'll get more on a return visit.

It is incredible how bad service and a bad attitude taints the food. Some of the staff here don't think their... salami smells.

Mostly smoked salmon sandwich's along with other great choices if you don't like salmon. Creative ingredients on tasty breads. Stopped by to try a Diner, Drive-in and Dive spot. They didn't disappoint. Quick and friendly service. Very limited seating indoors, but take your sandwich to go and go sit by Lake Superior. Can't beat that!

Very tasty sandwiches and fresh smoked fish. We also learned that they deliver, not sure how far their delivery area is, but if you don't want to wait in line, check this option out.

We were looking for a place to eat lunch and passed up this deli for the sit down restaurant across the hallway. We bought smoked fish from Northern Waters after lunch. My advice is to just get in what looks to be a long line snaking down the hallway and get a tasty sandwich or wrap for half the price... More
