  • The Cisco is my favorite
  • The brown sugar cured king salmon is the BEST! I bring a cooler with me every time I go to Grand Marais so I can stock up on the way home!
  • Everything I've had has been great!
  • Cheese from small Wisconsin creamery. Delicious but $8 for 3/4 lb.
  • Make sure to bring cooler and ice. Besides smoked fish they have a variety of cheeses
  • May be the best smoked king salmon I've ever had.
  • Great smoked fish! Lake trout is the bomb.
  • The best place for smoked fish and cheese curds on the North Shore! Accept no substitutes! Russ Kendall's has been smoking the best for years! We stop every time we are nearby.
  • The cisco here is delicious, like candy from the lake!
  • Fresh smoked fishhow could this be better? It cantits amazing!
  • This is a must stop on the north shore. Best smoked fish anywhere.
