Tucked in the corner of the DeWitt-Seitz building. What a gem! The menu is on the wall, so cool! We tried the bagel with smoked salmon! Great tasting bagel, and the smoked fish is out of this world. Great smoke flavor and seasoning. Would highly...More

The Smokehaus is hidden off of the main street, but it was worth the seach. Sandwiches and bison sticks were great!

Great food, the brine they use for their smoked products is incredible, not too salty or sweet..just right, and I haven't had anything that was over smoked (dried out like jerky gone bad). Not a lot of seating and it gets busy during lunchtime (locals...More

OMG. We have been getting smoked fish from here for the past few years every time we pass through but this was our first time getting sandwiches and it is only the beginning. We will return and must eat our way through all the choices!

I smoked salmon for years in Alaska. Have sampled the product all over the northwest. But, the freshly smoked whitefish I purchased at this store is the best we have eaten. Purchased three different types of cheese and made a picnic back at camp. Highly...More
