We are visiting from Texas so we're really looking for fresh fish and crab. They did not disappoint. We started with a crab cake. It was awesome! The multi grain mustard aioli was really good too and I hate mustard. It was so good, my husband ordered the crab cake sandwich and I had the strawberry, salmon salad. Both were... More

We were on a Family vacation and wanted to stop and eat something. Boy did we luck out! Great atmosphere with even better food. The sushi was awesome! Steak was great. My father in law said the trout was delicious. Try this place if you are in Elkhart Indiana!

After Chubby Trout moved to its new location we stopped in. The portion size shrunk and the food was terrible. I always loved Chubby Trout and never had anything bad. Our waitress forgot our sauces and then made us share instead of bringing us our own sauces. We had to ask twice for everything. Not sure that I will ever... More

They've only been open for a few months so I'd like to believe that their service and food will get better in time. They've changed their menu since they relocated and the food does not seem to be consistent. I'm sure we will go back again and at that time I'd be happy if I could add another star .

I had lunch with my boss here. From the outside, the building has a barn shape to it, which is appropriate because when you walk in it has a rustic barn-like decor. There are two levels of seating and they have several televisions around the restaurant so you can watch a game if you choose. The service was very good.... More

The Chubby Trout was a very nice surprise in an area where I was expecting a roadside chain would be about all I would have close by. Sat at the bar, and got very friendly, very attentive service. I sampled some Sushi, which was very good quality, which means a lot more to me that having dozens of options to... More

Description
Upscale food but casual atmosphere located in the middle of the motels off 80/90 toll road. From hand pattied burgers to black angus sirloin and filet mignon. Walleye, lake perch, blue gill and salmon to a full sushi bar! 20 beers on tap specializing in local hand crafted micro brews. Great little wine list. It's where the locals and the business travelers meet. Great bar atmosphere!
