We try to stop in here when we are returning from the U.P. and get either fresh or frozen fish. The fresh fish is usually just fresh caught. They sell bags of ice for your cooler and the fish stays cool for the 6 hour drive. My sons got the smoked fish and beef jerky and said they were delicious.... More

If you are a smoked fish lover, you have to stop at this fish market. We used to always go to a fish store in Petoskey, but Krueger's is even better. The smoked trout is wonderful; well all of it is. They have a smoked fish sausage that is just delicious. Don't miss your opportunity to sample their fish.

Smelly fishy place...but you would expect that. But it wasn't a dirty smell. The smoked fish we took home was excellent. We had family with us that only buys from Krueger's. I can see why!

Being a smoked fish lover and based on the good reviews, I had to stop and buy several chunks to share with relatives in Yooper Land. The fish was very good and must stop here on the next trip to Yooper Land

We stopped buying fish from grocery stores once we discovered Krueger's. Growing up in Florida I was use to 'fresh caught' fish. I started eating less fish once I moved to Michigan since the fish wasn't as fresh due to travel time. When we discovered the fish markets up north (Krueger's) everything changed. We make the trip every so often... More

This is not a restaurant,but "take-outs" are ok. It's about a three block walk west from the Baymont Motel on the western side of I - 75. Open 8 am to 6 pm. This place has the best smoked fish I've ever had,and I've had plenty. Try the Whitefish, Salmon, or Trout. There's also an IGA on the way back... More

Saw this place on the way in and decided to pick up some smoked fish to take home. It's definitely a local business, it's a tiny little building and doesn't look like much. The workers were all super friendly and helpful, and we sat and chatted with them for awhile. They didn't give you that attitude you sometimes get from... More

I have got to admit this is the best smoked chicken I have ever had. Went there for the fish . Salmon was o.k. but the jerky was outstanding & the chicken was mmm mmmm. It was like oreos & milk, or filet of the beef family. It's the most tender & smokey down to the bone. We live 1... More

Love the fresh smoked fish they sell. Only problem is I live 2 hours away. I wish they had a website That I could order from. Looks like I will be making a trip up north real soon. Like another reviewer noted this is NOT a restaurant.

Went here based on other reviews since I love good, fresh fish. The lady working was very nice but this is only a fish market. They sell smoked fish and other types of fish but there is NO actual food. She says she has repeatedly wrote notes on here explaining that it does not have sit down food but people... More
