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.

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

When in Algoma we always stop for smoked fish. Our favorite is the Lemon Pepper smoked salmon. Staff is always friendly and helpful.

I alternate between fresh salmon steaks and smoked lemon pepper salmon tails, both excellent. The boys who work here are very friendly and polite.
