“This is the best possible smoked fish available.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014 via mobile

Owned and operated by old time family of the area who have been doing this for years.
Quality fish done the right way.
Excellent location on the river, and on the highway in an old vintage early cannery day structure.

“Delicious Smoked Salmon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

This is the best smoked salmon we have ever had. Stopped in for lunch, had a pepper and garlic smoked salmon sandwich on a bagel. The bagel was fresh open in two halves and covered with large pieces of smoked salmon. The salmon was moist and had a very good smoke on it. We also ordered a large chowder which was thick and full of clams. the soup and the two half sandwiches made a great lunch for the two of us. I would highly recommend this smokehouse, shop and restaurant for a true Northwest experience.

“Best salmon ever. Period.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

Take some home. You'll be glad you did. Great smoked salmon, several ways. These folks have been doing this for generations, and it shows. The building oozes history, so that's fun, too. Have a cup of their good clam chowder while you're there. If you are lucky, you'll get a chance to chat with some of the family in this family run business. Interesting people. But don't forget -- get some salmon to take home. Outstanding!

“Yummy smoked fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

We were craving smoked fish and visited here to see if we could find something we liked. It was great - the girls working the counter was so sweet and helpful, a real joy. We got several samples to nibble on in our room close by. Also bought some to take home with us. Delicious.

“seafood divine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

we read about this place while visiting astoria, and wanted to sample it. we ordered take out for our hotel room. we shared both a smoked prawn salad, and a crab cake salad. the salads were excellent, plus had rasberries and strawberries added. we also bought some salmon jerky: the maple one and the smoked traditional one...the traditional was a little too salty, but still delicious. the maple was out of this world. the counter person was friendly and informative.
