I can honestly say, I hate salmon. I never like it. I really wasn't a fan of smoked fish either. This place has changed my mind. All I can say is these folks have NAILED IT! This smokey, flaky delight, was an outstanding surprise to my taste buds. I also bought a pound of the peppered jerky. My intentions were... More

Everything I've ever gotten here has been amazing!!!! The turkey jerk was out of this world. We stop every year on the way to Indian Lake. As for the service. My Dad thinks this place is heaven on earth. So last year we where about a half hour ahead of them. And asked the lady working to look out for... More

I have been stopping for years and love it! Always something new and lots of fun things to look at. My favorite part is the wonderful smell of the smokers.

We always make a stop at Gustafson's, on our way to our cabin. On our way back home, we stop to fill up on jerky and smoked fish, for our friends downstate. Darcy is always friendly and makes us feel welcome, every time. I now have to give friends directions to Gustafson's on their way through the U.P. Well worth... More

We stopped in here as we were heading back to the lower UP from vacationing "up north". We has a list of requests as once fellow co-workers knew we were going up north, they put in their requests. Gustafson's have never disappointed in quality, quantity or customer service. This will always be on our map when up north.

Gustafson's is a "must stop" every time I visit the UP. On my way to Eben Junction, I stop to fill up and grab a fresh snack for the remainder of my trip. Coming back, I stop for their great whitefish, crackers and cheese. The staff is very friendly. The prices for their t-shirts and other merchandise if very reasonable.... More

My first stop when heading north over the bridge to snowmobile or camp. I was introduced to Gustafson's in 2000 and have been stopping and introducing others to it ever since. Best smoked fish and jerky in the state. Service is always quick and the employees are always friendly. If you are driving Hwy 2 don't miss this stop.
