Had the salmon sandwich. Fabulous fresh bun. Great fillet of salmon, probably taken right from the lake that morning. Fresh and delicious! Highly recommend it 😀

Awesome food but the high prices keep us from frequenting the place. Would like to see more variety in sides as well.

The salmon salad with wasabi dressing was absolutely delicious! The portion of salmon was perfect and the salad mix was wonderful. Have not had such a good salad combination in a while! Really good discovery:)

Great sandwich options with unique and very tasty ingredients. These boys know smoke and deliver a great product no matter what you pick off the menu.
