“Great service, free samples and YUMMY!”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

This place is awesome! The owners are super nice and the smoked fishes are divine! We bought the following:

Smoked Peppered Salmon Jerky - BESTEST thing ever! I will go back and drop 30-40 bucks on as much of this as I can get for that, EASY!
Smoked Salmon Salad - Excellent! Very rich, but an excellent snack with crackers for your family or serve it as a dip for a party
Smoked Gouda - I LOVE me some smoked cheeses and the smoked gouda is great!
Cold Smoked Salmon - Another yummy and excellent item that is good for snacking or serving up sliced or cubed with crackers and some cheese!
Smoked Butter - Delicious! The smoke is very strong, so use it sparingly when using it on corn on the cob etc. but it definitely gave a nice new flavor to our steaks, corn and we are going to try it on turkey for Thanksgiving this year!

Salmon jerky - lots of different ways. The staff was great and let us taste several samples. We chose a hot smoked lemon pepper jerky that is great. They also have smoked cheeses, spreads and smoked salmon in the more traditional way.
