This deli style smokehouse smokes their own meats and fish. They make several types of sausages and salumis. We were at Canal Park, enjoying a beautiful early afternoon. It was time for lunch, and I remembered my husband mentioning a highly reviewed place with good smoked fish. We were in the visitor center, so were able to get a map.... More

I ordered a sandwich as a box lunch. A very simple sandwich - gorgeous bread, great meat and butter. Oh, my!!!! Yum!

On a recent visit to Duluth we stopped in at the Northern Waters Smokehouse for a light dinner. We were not disappointed. I ordered the Cajun Finn sandwich (Salmon) and was very impressed. The sandwich was one of the very best I have ever had. I would definitely eat here again.

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.

Hi there! Just had to say we would NEVER sneak anything onto our scales to increase the price. Not only is that unethical, it is illegal. Furthermore, our whitefish heads are tiny and really would add a negligible amount of weight to the scale. That being said, I apologize sincerely for this accident - our mistake! Sometimes in the flurry... More

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

Thanks for all your great support! Your pictures and commentary on the Haus have been wonderful, and we appreciate it. A word about our drinks: we strive to have a decent selection in our little beverage case. The Coca Cola we carry in those cute bottles is actually Mexican: it uses real cane sugar and we believe the flavor is... 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

This is a great spot right by canal park. It needs more seating but worth the wait. We will make this a regular stop when visiting Duluth!

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
