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!

“suprisingly good”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

good signs - packed with locals and friendly staffs. services can be slow during the peak time. we had dinner on a Thurs nite, luckily got the last table. by 8.30pm most of the patrons are satisfied and gone home happy. we had wally the walleye & chubby trout dishes, both tasted good and decent size portions. spinach artichoke dip wasn't bad too. saw many people ordered all sorts of sushi rolls. some of the dishes are bit pricey. overall, worth trying this place.

“Great food, 1/2 off sushi after 4 on Mondays!!”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

My wife and I have ate here twice, once for lunch and the other for dinner. Both times were great all around! Menu is a bit pricey, but they have fair priced specials nightly on most of their menu items. Get there early (6:00) at the latest cause the tables fill up quickly. Overall friendly staff, good food, and would definately recommend trying.

“Busy local hangout”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Very busy social hangout. Would suggest reservations even during the week. They have a sushi bar and several fish dishes as well as steaks and chicken. Loud atmosphere but fun. Not recommended for a romantic evening but a nice place for couples who enjoy flavorful food.

“Always great food, service and atmosphere”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

Monday night 1/2 price Sushi is great to meet up with friends and enjoy a few drinks! My favorite is the Filet but all of their entrees are very good (I've tried many). I eat there a lot and the service has always been exceptional!

“Was good!!!”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

Wife and I have been coming to chubby for years I would have given a better review before they got rid of NICK, but the last two time we have gone the experience was less then pleasant. Will not go back till they get better management.
