  • The line was very long, but we decided to wait. The customer service was astounding! Even with a huge line they took the time to answer all questions big & small. The fish was priced fairly & was the ...  more »
  • We come here every time we're in the area. Their smoked fish is great, as is their fish sausage. Got their beef jerky this time around, and it was fabulous - tasty, tender (for jerky) and not hard and...  more »
  • We stopped at this place on a Sunday afternoon for some fresh whitefish for smoking in my smoker back home. I was disappointed to learn that they only receive fresh fish Monday thru Friday. I also lea...  more »
  • My family and I stop here every year before our routine week-long excursions on North Manitou. The smoked fish is amazing, as well as the jerky. We always fight over who has to carry the extra weight in their backpack though! Great store, atmosphere is nice, the food is fantastic. A+
  • By far my favorite smoked white fish. Their beef jerky was very good too (had it years ago - had some softness to it and not the kind that's super dry or hard and gets trapped between your teeth). I frequent this nice family owned shop when I visit. The smoked fish and jerky make great gifts for my folks back home.
  • The smoked whitefish and smoked salmon pate were entirely too salty. It was awful. The place didn't smell clean at all, and the customer service was terrible. The staff really didn't want to be there. A local told us to go to Gabe's for smoked fish. Customer service was friendly, and they asked us if we wanted to sample before purchasing. It was wonderful. All you could taste is delicious, fresh smoky fish.
  • This is a great place to stop for delicious smoked fish, my favorite is the whitefish. They jerky (beef and turkey) is also pretty amazing! It is fun walking around, view the water & visit the shops of Leland, "Fishtown" as well so plan to walk around a little too!
  • I bought this past week end Friday 17th June some smoked fish sausage, when I got home in Mancelona this sausage smelled so bad that the guest I had over would not eat it , the smell was really bad fish smell we ended up throwing it out 20.00 dollars worth ,I believe it was spoiled ,buyers smell your fish first . I will be back to check out the other items some other day.
