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.

We come up to Door County to go salmon fishing and when we are lucky enough to catch some, we bring the fish to Charlie's to be smoked. Everybody loves it. There is also a refrigerator case with smoked fish to buy.
