French fries have a smell to them like the grease was used to fry something rotten or just nasty. Service seems painfully slow. Maybe this is due to large orders before me. Anyway I won't be back there.

The grilled trout, onion rings, hush puppies, and wild rice were all seasoned & tasty. The fish & chips were not overcooked but needed seasoning. Food overall was good and worth a visit to try some other menu items.
