We've been buying smoked fish from Bell's for many years and always, always have been extremely happy with their product. Until now. We stopped here on our way to the U.P. on 7/28. They were busy, as always, and we see they now offer fish dinners to eat there or take out. There was one young girl running the fish... More

We ordered 2 combo fried fish baskets and 1 perch and 1 trout basket. We had 5 people. We could have went with 3 baskets as a lot of food. They included fries and coleslaw. The drinks were extra $1.50 each. We felt the baskets were a bit pricey but if it was fresh fish that explains why. You eat... More

To me, best smoked fish in the area, second only to Cross Fisheries in Charlevoix for the whole Great Lakes region. Fresh and smoked fish, some of the best whitefish pate around.

We always stop her to get our fish. The perch is very fresh but can be expensive. I love this place and can't wait to go back.

A mom and pop place set back along the lake, it sells fresh fish, smoked fish, and makes fried fish meals. We bought trout pate and a plate of fried white fish one evening and it was so good (and not expensive like elsewhere in this tourist town) that we went back a second time.

Great whitefish, fries & coleslaw! Quick service for our group of 13. Outside seating only. Not sure the vulture on the outside of the building is a welcoming sight but it's unique. Other members in our group had perch and chicken and said they were delicious also.

I have stopped here for smoked fish over the years - sturgeon, whitefish, chubs. Never been disappointed with what I got. A true (fresh) fish store does not have every thing all the time due to seasonal availability and fishing seasons and such so a flexible attitude is advisable in such places. I'll be back and I think I'll try... More
