Our Heritage

Founded in 1975 by Lou Sjoberg, Lou’s Fish House began as the passion project of a former wrestler and welder turned fish smoker. His unique smoked fish quickly became a local legend, drawing visitors from all around.

Over the years,

Lou's Fish House grew from a small smokehouse into a beloved local institution. We expanded our offerings while maintaining the traditional smoking techniques that made us famous. Even after Lou stepped back, his ethos of quality and community remained at the heart of our operations.

July 1st 2018,

Ashleigh Swanson and her family revived this iconic smokehouse! Reopening Lou’s doors, they continued the tradition of crafting memorable smoked fish experiences for every guest.

Present Day

Our team takes great pride in offering exceptional smoked fish and shrimp. With every visit, we aim to deliver an enjoyable experience, backed by our dedicated staff who love making every meal special.
