The food is fan-flipping-tactic!!! I've been here many times and purchased food to take home too. I've been here for breakfast, lunch and dinner & never had a bad experience - quick, friendly service and great food.

Amazing sandwiches and we bough the large smoked salmon with the variety of flavors for a gathering and had rave reviews. I am sending one to out of town family for Thanksgiving.

The Cajun Finn is without a doubt the best sandwich I’ve ever eaten. And I’ve eaten everything, everywhere. Incredibly fresh and flavorful. Wow!! I will never pass through Duluth again without stopping at Northern Waters. It deserves 6 stars.

Stopped here on our way to the north shore. It waqs highly recommended and after eating here I can see why. Not a lot of room to sit down so take your sandwich somewhere close and be prepared to be delighted with the flavors.

I had a boat load of family here last week and served the smoked salmon, it was a hit and my visitors went to the Smokehaus and bought more to take back to Illinois!
