Prime rib and eggs was good. Have eaten here many times, it's always good service and timely with the food. Portions are big also.

The quality of the food is fine, portions are in my opinion small for the price you pay. While it's a local favorite there is nothing special about Trout House. There are several other places to dine in the valley that have the same menu items but cost much less.

I’ve read many reviews on local dinners/ resteraunts around the Wasilla area claiming a “home cooked” meal. To me, many of the places around here only taste like they went to Costco and prepared it. NOT HERE! I can attest the skillet meals are made from scratch every time. The gravy is thick and hearty. Oh and the burgers? I... More

The service here was fantastic! The breakfast I ordered wasn't great, but my husband and son enjoyed theirs. It is nice to be able to have a morning cocktail with breakfast here.

Friday PRIME RIB night is delicious Otherwise the fish and chips (halibut is great. They have big desserts, but have your cake first when you still have room for it.

I have visited this establishment many times. The food is always good and the wait is never too long. This is an old fashioned restaurant with old fashioned food! There is a bar attached for drinks and there is seating in the bar for dining as well. Beats Red Robin anyday! They also have a banquet room for private parties.

We ordered a Prime Rib Melt and French fries. Where's the beef? Minimal shredded prime rib on toast. It was more like a grill cheese sandwich with flecks of beef and the fries were cold. Workers were busy visiting amongst themselves, so our food came cold, then we had to wait for silverware and ketchup.

Good food, good service. Full, large plates. Seats and booths need updated, but that would probably raise the prices to pay for that! :-) A local favorite for many years. Fish pictures and taxidermy fill the walls. Themed background music is good, days for the 50s, 60s, 70s, etc. Not the radio of today.
