This one of my regular stops for good food in the neighborhood. I love the falafel burger and the excellent salmon satay which I had tonight. They have a decent beer and wine selection and the staff is excellent and very attentive. Their happy hours feature some good value specials.

The kind folks at the Sivertson Gallery recommended we have lunch at Northern Waters for what they called "the best smoked fish you will ever eat". I was leery, as I've never been a fan of smoked fish. I actually waited outside while my companions on the trip purchased their goods. I was offered a taste and my smoked fish... More

Yes, they have smoked salmon and artisan sausage . . . BUT they also have a prime rib sammy, thai coconut wings, and falafel tacos (really) - AND micro brews on tap with a Happy Hour EVERY DAY from 4-6 (although I tell myself it's only on Wednesday so I don't go completely crazy.) Sit in a cozy booth, join... More

The title says it all. Loved the food, but seemed pricey for what you get. If we ever return to Duluth we'd still stop again :)

No doubt that the food is good, but the same attention they give their food should be paid to cleanliness. Dust hanging off the walls, gross!

There is very little place to sit and eat here and only sandwiches and they were expensive and we didn't care for the one we picked. I would not go back there but there were lots ordering stuff. They also sell fish and stuff there. Was not for us but am sure a lot of people like it. There is... More

We stopped here to pick up sandwiches to take with us on our hike. I had the turkey with craisin/walnut mayo and my fiance had the pastrami. O.M.G. I don't think I have ever thought of a sandwich as a dining experience, but this time I did! SO good! We will definitely be back again!!
