We had a very nice post-canoe trip dinner here. Really liked the fish and the way it is prepared. The selection was limited on a Wed. night, but we tried both the smelt and the whitefish and they were both quite good. The side salad...More

I recently ate at this place. Party of ten. Three birthdays. A couple of us got the fish and chips. Wrong choice. Both of us received fish that was almost inedible. The chips were waffle fries, if I remember rightly. The batter on the fish...More

We went to Angry Trout because of the good reviews of Trip Advisor - but I would have to say I wasn't really that impressed. The location was nice - right on the water and if it would have been nice out there was outdoor...More
