When passing through Duluth, I always stop at the Smokehaus to get some salami. They also have wonderful smoked fish. I have not tried their sandwiches but there is usually people lined up to get them. Give it a try.

I must have the "Slammin Gordon" every year. The smoked salmon pate sandwich is unbelievable. The smell in the shop is yummy.

Sandwiches (we ordered two) were lacking in the meat, and the bread wasn't the freshest (but we ordered/ate at 5:00 at night, so that may explain that). Very pricey for the overall bang for buck ($23+ for two sandwiches). Overall it didn't live up to the 'Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives' hype. I would like them to put a lot more... More

If you love smoked salmon, a stop at Northern Waters Smokehaus is the way to go. As a local, I avoid it on Sundays (busy with tourists) but every couple weeks I stop in and get smoked salmon to-go. It is a crowd pleaser and keeps well for several weeks in the refrig. I also have tried their lunch (sandwiches)... More

Had heard about this place but never enough time to stop. This trip I made it a point to eat here. OMG, I do not know why I waited so long! Duluth has a lot of great places but this absolutely exceeded my expectations. I had the Buffalo '06, their version of a Reuben. It was mouthwatering good. I will... More

Very hip deli. Great variety of very creative sandwiches. Bison pastrami sandwich was outstanding! A bit pricey but fits in nicely in this trendy part of town. Try the cream soda...delish!!

First time for my friend and I to stop and have a quick lunch while in Canal Park area, and based on the constant line of people out the door, we figured it would be a great spot and it was. Great variety of deli sandwiches with different and quirky items that all work together. The deli counter offers nice... More

We stopped in here (hard to find) because it was highly rated in Trip Advisor, and it IS interesting -- strictly a deli-type facility, with a few seats inside, and some outside seating available . . . . very unusual and interesting sandwich options, albeit a bit over-priced, I thought. In the end, our food was fine - it just... More

We went there for an after work quick drink and apps. Sat in the relaxing sofa area. There were also booths and a community long table to choose from. Atmosphere was really pleasant and modern, but warm. We ordered drinks (wine) and smoked Atlantic salmon, beans, and coleslaw. It was a fun light combo. Nicely done. We had way too... More
