It is definitely worth the drive to go to Charlie's. Best destination in Door County for smoked fish. And, for the first time this week, we bought some of their frozen whitefish filets, and they were wonderful, better than we have had in years. This...More

They had several different types of smoked fish and fish dips. And ice cream cones for a hot day. Definitely worth checking out.

We stopped to get some smoked fish after our boat tour. The fish was great and the prices very reasonable.

If you loved smoked salmon I highly recommend Charlie's smoke house. We purchased and hunk of salmon and some crackers took out to their back deck and enjoyed.

We LOVE smoked fish, especially when it's fresh, and includes enough smoky taste. Charlie's Smokehouse hits the mark. They have a wide range of freshly smoked local fish (including some frozen). You pick your fish or chunk and it's immediately wrapped in newspaper, weighed, and...More
