  • Enjoyed some of the best smoked white fish I ever had at Charlie's. GREAtT smoke flavor not too salty,just perfect with a cold beer. Well worth the trip to the tip of the peninsula  more »
  • The shop is nothing fancy but the smoked fish are very good. I like to smoke my own fish and these are very close to my own likes. Well worth the stop if you're in the area.  more »
  • Hands down one of the top two smokehouses I've ever been too and I check out every one I come across. I've even ordered as a Christmas gift one year! They may not be fancy or have a huge selection of flavors like some other places but you don't need to have all that if the quality of what you do is at their level.
  • Wonderful selection of smoked fish. Great Coffee. I sat on the deck and watched the ferry go out.
  • Really cool family owned establishment. Smells of wonderful smoked fish and has a nice view of the water.
  • Came in around noon the place was packed. Unique little store with a lot of character. I bought the Smoked Salmon and the Smoked Whitefish. I smoke my own fish occasionally so to my liking the Salmon tasted great but was a little dry and salty for my personal preference. As far as the Whitefish it is the best I have ever had. The staff was very friendly and the pricing is not expensive for the good quality of fish you will receive.
  • Me and my family have been getting fish here for more than 30 years. It's tucked up in the tip of the peninsula and well worth the trip. You will never want to eat fish any other way after you have their smoked fish. Seriously, it just doesn't get any better than this. I would highly recommend this place to anyone on vacation in Door County. Thanks for the amazing job you guys do!!!
