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.

We have only had breakfast and lunch and both are really good. Service is excellent as is the food. Have had many different items on the menu and all were very tasty.

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

four of us had dinner here tonight and were pleased with the food. No one had a bad meal. Selection of meals were good, service was good and food came out hot.

Enjoyed a great dinner here. My husband had the Hot Beef Sandwich and really raved about it. The gravy was really good. I enjoyed the lake perch dinner, very big serving. French fries were fresh made, coleslaw was excellent. Our service was too notch. Would definitely go there again if in the area.
