What I really wanted was smoked whitefish. Yep, they have it. They have several different smoked fish options as well as a fairly large variety of fish & seafood. Prices were reasonable, the guys working were really helpful. Great choice if you like fish.

This is a must stop every time we are in the area. I have made regular trips to Bearcats just to purchase the Tuscan Garlic Smoked Salmon (200mile round trip from my house). Awesome staff and great fish!

The smoked salmon varieties I have tried all deserve high ranks. Prices are reasonable and you should find a variation you like.

I go to Bearcat's Fish House once a month for smoked fish or shrimp. The quality is very good, along with numerous choices.

This is a market, not a restaurant. I tried 3 of the cheeses - farmer's cheese is cheapest, but a great light cheddar type cheese. I also bought some smoked cajun salmon - excellent. Smoked trout - I'm less of a fan, but it was...More
