This is the best place for smoke fish in Door County. Not a fancy place, just the best smoked fish. They ship everywhere.

I got a whiff of a smoker after getting off of the Washington Island Ferry. My nose led me to some of the very best smoked fish ever! The prices are very fair too!

If you are looking to buy fish caught daily from the water the same day then head no further than this location. Great prices with close to 20 different types of fish for sale. This must be the number one fish store in the whole of Wisconsin.

We picked up some smoked salmon and trout. The salmon was the best. Reasonable prices too. Also, in a nice area overlooking the water near the ferry boats to Washington Island. Little gift shops around too to visit.

.....who are familiar with an area. Right after eating across the street at The Shoreline Restaurant, my friends dragged me here. They lived in Alaska for a while and used to have smoked fish sent to them by Charlie's. I bought smoked whitefish which I dearly love as well as some salmon/whitefish spread. Less that 12 hours later, I can... More
