NW has the best smoked maple sage turkey! Be sure to grab a la croix and kettle chips, take your sandwich to go and enjoy it in canal park. Local gem in a tourist location! They also deliver (often on bicycles)!

OMC is better! Not a unique menu selection available. Nothing out of the ordinary and can't hold a candle to the smokehouses in the Carolinas and Georgia.

My husband and I were in Duluth to visit family and went to Northern Waters for dinner and took our meal to Hoops. Exceptional selection and scrumptious sandwiches. Get the pickles too! You have to go here! It’s the best.
