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...

We ate here while in the Duluth area on vacation. We'd looked online for eateries in the region before travelling as we wanted to try something a little bit different from the mainstream chain restaurants. The menu looked really good and we were excited to try some of their interesting menu selections. The store is located in the Dewitt-Seitz Marketplace,... More

The restaurant is small - extremely limited inside seating but outside deck seating available. One orders at the counter, menu on a board, they call your name when it's ready. If you like smoked fish, the sandwiches are imaginative and delicious. My one complaint is that I can't get this in Indiana. So good. Got to try it.

This place is unassuming, but a fabulous surprise! We live almost 80 miles away but make a point to eat here as often as we can. We always order two sandwiches and split them - the Cajun Finn and the Sitka Sushi. Oh my! Delish beyond belief! We have also tried their pepperoni - never knew it could taste like... More

I have lunch here as often as possible, I am in love with the Sitka Sushi Salmon sandwich. There's always a line, but you can call ahead to get your food quicker, but it's worth the wait no matter what. My boyfriend loves that you can get some of the best bacon on the planet and they will slice it... More

Thank you for catering our business lunch; lunch orders were clearly marked with first names so we didn't have to dig around, food was on time and very nicely packaged. Taste and quality are first rate, always.
