  • It's just a tiny little place that reeks of smoke and fish (in a good way). Their smoked fish is outstanding. No trip to Leland and Fishtown would be complete without stopping there. We've been going ...  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+
  • The best sandwiches in existence. I make a point to stop by every time I head up north.
  • 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!
