We are a fishery that provides retail and wholesale with a small outside dining. We are by no means a full scale restaurant with the proper table settings of iced water glasses and silverware with cloth napkins. We sell drinks for .50 with the purchase of a meal. These drinks come in the form of a can or bottle. We... More

Friends of our brought to us some smoked fish from Bell's and it was very good so on our way home recently from the "Soo" we stopped to get some more smoked fish.

Had to have whitefish before we left MI. Stopped at Odawa Fishery which is called Bell's on the sign outside. Ordered a whitefish basket. Comes with fries and coleslaw. Fried whitefish was delicious and fries are hand cut and then fried. Sat outside with a 50 cent Cherry coke and ate basket. Hit the spot after a long day.

They have the best smoked fish that I have ever had. They also sell fresh fish. One can also order baskets and eat there as well

Since a little boy, my grandparents stopped at Bell's. Now I do this. It is as fresh as it gets. The smoked fish is our favorite. Now I see fish snack sticks----YUMMY. Must not miss stopping and stocking up. Be sure to bring cooler with ice so it can make it home-----or just plan to eat it now-----that is what... More

Stopped here like we do every time we are in Mackinaw City. You must look for Bell's Fishery! This year it was twice. Once to get fresh whitefish and smoked whitefish to eat on our camping trip. Second to get fish dinners - also with the whitefish. Served with French fries and a bit of coleslaw. Best and freshest fish... More
