Ate here twice on a 36 hour vacation

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...

I've been getting Christmas packages of smoked salmon and sausage - so went for lunch after a lake walk with a couple of friends. Contrary to the reviews there was no long line so we ordered - and were told there would be little wait- one hour before our food arrived. Had we been told that we would have gone... More

Northern waters smokehaus does a phenomenal job with their sandwiches! My wife had the Buffalo 06, Your choice of house-made corned beef or a half pound of Bison Pastrami with our delicious fermented sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, and our special recipe (we’ll never tell) Russian dressing on Red Mug rye. Served toasted*, this one is certainly a cult classic, and I... More

All I can say is the Cajun Finn is the best sandwich I have ever had. We had lunch here two days in a row...I just couldn't get enough! We also purchased some items to go for an appetizer later in the day...yummy!

My daughter and I stopped here and ate because we wanted smoked fish! It was absolutely delicious and we plan on returning here every time we come to Duluth!

We enjoyed our visit to Smokehaus. The Ruben was delicious. My dad really enjoyed Cajun. We snaked on the smoked salmon tail while waiting for our food. Great find!

On our way back home, we wanted to bring something of "Superior" back with us. We purchased 3 items....house made smoked salmon pate, boursin cheese and smoked salmon fillet. What a brilliant decision! The fillet was a perfect balance of smokey sweet fish, without being dried out. The pate is well balanced with cream cheese and herbs, the boursin is... More
