Always a line up, but well worth the wait. Best jerky anywhere! Friendly service every time. Great smoked fish! Found out they ship anywhere in the U.S.A. Bonus!! Best place around. Would stop anytime we're in the area.

This place doesn't look like much when you pull up, but once you walk in and smell the jerky and smoked fish, you know you have arrived. The smoked fish was so fresh that some of it was still warm off the smoker. They had a good selection of flavors of jerky, and they give samples. The jerky was the... More

From now on, I'll buy my smoked fish in St. Ignace or Mackinaw City. We stopped there last year and the fish was great but the service wasn't. This year the service was even less friendly. We overheard they same comment in the parking lot. I'll spend my money where they appreciate my business.

Great locally caught smoked fish. Smoke house are right out front where you can see them in action. Fish was fantastic. Also bought local jelly and jerky. All were delicious. Staff is friendly and quite pleasant. Highly recommend.

This place is phenomenal! If you like jerky, this is the place to get it. Everyone is always very friendly and upbeat. I like that they give samples in case you want to try something new. They also ship, but I haven't tried that yet. I love this stuff! so good!

We stopped here because we needed to fill up on our drive home, and I am really glad that we did. This was an awesome shop that smelled amazing from all of the freshly smoked fish and jerky inside. I picked up some fudge and jerky to take back to Detroit. The woman working was super friendly and very pleasant... More

Just happened to stop to get some cheese curds and saw the smoked fish and jerky so bought a bunch of stuff and it all turned out great. The smoked trout was outstanding; if I ever go back that way I will take a cooler and stock up. Later I saw all the good reviews on tripadvisor and they are... More

The smoked fish is top notch, fresh and very reasonably priced, and you can purchase chunks or whole salmon, whitefish, and trout. The fish pate has been very good in the past but I think someone added too much pepper in what I purchase yesterday. Their version of a slim jim in mild or hot is very lean, tasty, about... More
