Not much seating, but great flavor

The Sitka Sushi is my favorite sandwich. If they never made anything else, I would probably still be happy. The meats are wonderful too. Get some bison pastrami to take home. Only down side is that there is not much room to eat - outside on the patio, at tables in the hallway or high counter... read more

I always get the Cajun Finn and eat it on the shore of the lake (away from seagulls, though). The smoked fish and meats are amazing. No good place to sit down inside but no matter - the deliciousness should be savored waterside.

Very good sandwiches. The Cajun smoked salmon sandwich was really good. We bought some traditional smoked salmon for later, and it was amazing.

We had just finished our Duluth Experience (bus/van) tour and had limited time before our Duluth Glides (Segway) tour. Checking the TripAdvisor app, we found the Northern Waters Smokehaus. This is a deli-style restaurant with excellent food. You order at the counter, then pickup your prepared food a few minutes later. There was a good crowd on a weekday after... More

Had the smoked salmon sandwich which was great. Gluten free options available. If you happen to grill out, you can buy brats here that are good too.

I am all for trying new places while in vacation, but my wife and I loved it so much we had to go back the next day.

This is one of those places where it feels like the employees love what they're doing. The place has a good vibe. We ordered the buffalo pastrami and the pate and kimchee sandwich and took some buffalo buddies (buffalo jerky) to go. Great place to grab a bite in canal park. We would eat there again. The pate and kimchee... More

I lie, there is a regret... That I cannot eat this every day. I had the salmon pate on Naan and it was the most flavorful sandwich I've ever had. The veggies were all incredibly fresh and the sprouts with the vinegar/oil mix along with the pate was incredible. It was served warm and perfectly so. Also, they had HUGE... More

This place makes very good sandwiches for a good price. They smoke meats and fish and they do a killer job of it. If you like sandwiches and you are in Duluth, you should stop here. Get anything. It's all good! But good luck parking...
