We bought some Smoked Salmon (Atlantic), Smoked Whitefish, and Smoked Lake Trout then ate some of it on the back patio overlooking the harbor. My wife loved the salmon and the Whitefish was also tasty. The Whitefish takes a lot of work as it's all...bones still but worth it. Lots of people in line before and after me.More

Charlie's has the best smoked fish around. I had been buying some from the grocery store, there was no comparison. Charlie's isn't dry, but somewhat oily as it should be. They are open in Gills Rock.

We love taking rides up to Door County. Charlie's Smokehouse is always one of our favorite places to stop. We stock up on smoke fish to take back home and if it is a nice day we get some to enjoy on their deck while...enjoying the view over the water.More

We like to try the local things and Charlie's was highly recommended. Off we went to locate the unassuming little building that has a lovely smokey aroma as soon as you enter. There were quite a few options so we asked the young woman what...should a newby to their place try. She informed us that their Atlantic smoked salmon was their best selling and because it has no bones to mess with the easiest to eat. SOLD. We got our hunk and away we went. Too bad we left the area or we would have returned for more and to try the trout! Next time. We really enjoyed the salmon and I recommend it.More

Its at the tip of Door county. If you like fresh smoked fish then this is the place to go. We stop there everytime we visit in Gills Rock.

Stopped in to buy a piece of smoked whitefish and smoked whitefish dip. Both were fresh and delicious. You should also take the time to walk to the waters edge and take in the view.

At the very tip of Door County at Gills Rock is Charlie's Smokehouse. The two elderly folks that patiently wait on not-so-patient customers will wrap up your choice of smoked fish and send you on your way. If it's a nice day, head to the...picnic table outside and, with a plastic fork and knife, dig in. Enjoy the scenery of this beautiful spot and enjoy the best smoked fish in Wisconsin. (And if you happen to be there in the late afternoon when the boats come in, score some fresh whitefish. Fresh off the boat, you've never tasted anything like it.)More

Charlies has a limited selection, sells out early, but is simply the best & most economical smokery for fish there is in NORDOOR!

Went in to grab my husband some smoked fish. Got the recommended smoked Atlantic Salmon. Husband said it was the best he’s ever had. Super friendly people working there. Great place!

We stopped here on Father's Day what an awesome find. If you love smoked fish this is the place for you. It was so good we had to go back another day for more smoked salmon.
