“A nice surprise! ”
Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

We're stuck in the area due to rain (motorcycle trip). Hubs just wanted a pizza but I wanted real food. I had cheddar ale soup and 1/2 french dip and hubs had french dip fries and coleslaw. Everything was delicious. Will definitely be back hopefully not in the rain next time.

“Don't go on Sunday unless you eat from the Buffett.”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

It took 1.5 hours from the time we were seated until we received out food. There was a breakfast Buffett that we should have eaten instead of individual ordering. The Buffett looked good.

“Good every day restaurant”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

We live in the area and eat at this restaurant at different times of the day. The food is always good and the servers are as good as they get! They also do a great job catering for special occasions.

“Best in town”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Cozy little diner that has a good menu and now has alcohol to go with it. Breakfast is always reliantly good and the portions are large. Great staff that serves you quickly. If your in Kalkaska this is the place to go.

“Who Would Have Thunk It? (Ha!)”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

Grumpy with hunger, we pulled into the Trout Town Cafe, just off the main drag in downtown Kalkaska. Although the building is showing its age, the menu was a complete surprise. Most items made from scratch. The slow roasted corned beef was melt in your mouth delicious. The fish dishes are excellent. The waitresses were busy serving opening day deer hunters, running back and forth, but were pleasant as can be. We don't find ourselves in Kalkaska on any regular basis, but we will time it so we can lunch at the Trout Town.
