If you are looking for lunch in Canal Park, look no further! The sandwiches here are excellent made with smoked meats in house and other quality ingredients.

On a visit to Duluth, went to check the food. Great sandwiches. Kind of located on the ground floor of a multi business building. Small place but nice seating outside. You order your food and wait for your name to be called and pick it...More

There's something for everyone in their extensive menu of creative and very tasty sandwiches. Our party of 8 ordered a variety of items and all were pleased with the results. My only quibble is space--although great for take-out, and there's a nice and roomy deck...More

Northern Waters is truly my favorite food in Duluth. We spend summers there only and look forward to Northern Waters every year. We were truly disappointed they closed their Mt. Royal restaurant, but love their food wherever.

I'm not into sandwiches so we just bought some smoked fish take eat as we did the lakewalk. Very happy we did. Ask for a fork and to take it on the road. Very good tasting lake trout. Will go back for some salmon.

Smoked salmon has won many awards and is the best I have found; sausages are splendid. Only problem is the lines waiting to buy it. That says it all.

Fantastic sandwiches with something for everyone! I highly recommend the Cajun Finn! Don't let the smoked salmon scare you off. A generous serving of mild salmon along with cream cheese and pickled peppers served in a ciabatta roll will not disappoint!
