Creekside Smokehouse was started by Patrick McNair in 1993.  A well loved guy that sadly passed away in 2002, but his recipes for smoked fish live on. Pat's customers and family still come in and usually have a great story to tell.  Pat was a helluva guy we hear!  

Current owner Dave Barber, a local on the Coast since the day he was born and a sheet rocker by trade, took over smoking in 2004 from second owner Terry Weisbrich.  Terry was retiring and Dave was ready to do something new.  In a month's time Dave learned the trade and became a master at smoking fish.

Dave has grown the business, smoking more fish than ever before and has also added a few more items such as Smoked Pepperjack, Smoked Provolone and the infamous Smoked Butter as seen in Food & Wine Magazine and twice featured on the Food Network's series Chopped!

Dave is a hard working, dedicated small business owner who loves animals, birds, a cold Budweiser and the 49ers.  His favorite things to eat from the smokehouse are the Smoked Sturgeon, Smoked Salmon Salad and the Rich Jerky.
