Lots of amazing, unique, sandwich choices have other stuff too, but didn't try Lil pricey but great quality, mostly outdoor seating or take out to small tables inside

Should be a solid 5! If you like gourmet sandwiches, you would love this place. Would eat here every day if I lived in Duluth.

If God made sandwiches, this is what they would taste like...Stellar atmosphere, Great foods. 11 out of 10. A "must stop" for a meal in Duluth.

A trip to Canal Park is not complete until you have visited Northern Waters Smokehaus! They have the best smoked salmon ever - Black pepper and Coriander! We always stop here when we are in Duluth. Their sandwiches are famous - just ask anyone who lives in the area and they will tell you about their favorite sandwich!

It was a busy summer afternoon in canal park, but definitely worth the wait as we stood in line for the Slammin' Gordon sandwich!

My wife had the Cold Turkey sandwich, and I had the D-Luxx with Berkshire ham. These were two of the best sandwiches we've ever had. The maple-smoked turkey with the craisin-walnut mayo was tasty, refreshing, and not too heavy.

Fresh and tasty sandwiches, unique little spot. It is also a deli and smokehouse with interesting offerings. I didn't experience a wait as others have. My only complaint would be the price, it is a little steep for a sandwich but the quality of the food offsets it.

Had two lovely sandwiches here when staying in the town. Very small place with lots of customers but a very friendly guy on the register and efficient service. Lovely food

Wonderful sandwiches! Love that you can order a picnic ahead to pick up! Waited about 1/2 hr total between order and done but community picnic tables outside made for pleasant chat time with new people. Was during Tall Ships so very busy but staff very helpful and very pleasant!
