We were looking for a different place other than pizza or fast food. And we were surprised to find this hidden treasure. The fried fish dinner was light and crispy and homemade coleslaw. The waitstaff were friendly and very accommodating. We will be back!

This was recommended to us by our hotel during our annual snowmobiling trip. It was great food, not high end by any means, but not a single person out of 8 people disliked their meal. I would 10/10 recommend to people looking for a casual, great place to eat.

Unfortunately Kalkaska doesn't have a lot to choose from for restaurants. Trout Town is a popular place, usually quite busy, with a diverse menu.

I want to love this place. I really do. The food is fantastic. But it takes forever to arrive. If you have some time to wait, this is the place to go for a great meal. Excellent Sunday brunch. Just wish they had pancakes on the list. Still worth going any time of the day. Great weekly specials.

Stopped here on the way home from downstate Michigan. Not disappointed. The Fish and Chips was very good. My husband had one of their Octoberfest Specials-The Combo Platter and it was incredible. The Schnitzel and Potato Pancakes were excellent. The side of red cabbage was the best he ever had (as he told me). Will definitely eat here again when... More
