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...More

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....More

No- it's a tiny, tiny spot and you'll be lucky if you can get a chair inside.
