Food is delicious, but portion size is NOT large. Be prepared to pay a bit more for smaller portion. Atmosphere is nice and casual and servers have always been helpful and friendly.

We stopped on our way back from a camping trip at Cascade River State Park. Northern Bagel is my 'fav' and my husband tried the 'Fin' which I may have to try next time. Took home 2lbs of salmon. ❤️

Check out this small sidebar eatery while enjoying the sights, sounds and smells of Duluth's Canal Park. The menu boasts a wide variety of smoked meat sandwiches served in a basket... You'll love it so much, you'll buy some to take home. Best smoked salmon and whitefish I've ever had. No contest. Get there before the lunch rush as the... More

Walk through the main door and keep going to see the menu through the next opening on the right to see the menu on the wall. Lots of sandwiches with funny names with interesting ingredients. Feeling stuffy and cold I went with the Sitka Sushi with wasabi. It was tasty without too much mayonnaise (the enemy of favor). Friendly, fast... More

We regularly get lunch to go from N W Smokehaus. The Cajun Finn is a great smoked salmon sandwich. Everybody at work really likes different meals from them. I keep saying that I`m going to branch out and get something different but I don`t because the Finn is so good. A little expensive but well worth it!!

We stopped in for lunch during a business trip and the place was packed. Excellent smoked fish sandwich and will be making this a "must-go-to" place for every trip to Duluth.

An amazing array of sandwiches--smoked salmon, trout, pork, pastrami and more. Salads, too. A casual atmosphere tucked away in the Dewitz Building in Canal Park. My pick for the day was the Pastrami Mommy--smoked bison pastrami, pepperoncini, provolone, mustard and mayo on delicious rye bread. While you're standing in line study the menu board--time flies and then take a seat... More
