New owners last year and you can tell they love it. We were here before the season so not many restaurants were open yet. Copper Trout turned out to be a winner! Loved the Malbec and tloved every dish we tried! Absolutely recommend the Smoked Trout Crostini starter, the Whitefish Chowder and the salad with the apple vinaigrette Unpretentious, great food and really nice people!

My friends and I got take-out from Ethel’s. They had Mac and cheese and onion rings and I had mushroom bruschetta and whitefish chowder. Everything was delicious. We have eaten in the restaurant during previous visits and the food is consistently good. I understand there are new owners but the quality is just as good if not better.

Intrigued by the Smoked Fish Starter, we ordered and devoured the rich treat. For dinner, we tried the baked spaghetti (delicious), and lobster ravioli (disappointment). The lobster seemed fake and was served in small portions - definitely over-priced. Afterwards, we spent the next day recovering from some sort of illness. Tough to say if dinner was the culprit.

I apologize for being late to respond! This off-season we have made a lot of changes, one of which was ditching the lobster ravioli. You are right and I wont serve something I don't love. We have changed the menu, and our name this year. So next summer come give us another shot at.

This is a very nice, family restaurant. Loved the Smoked Trout Appetizer!! Had the whitefish dinner was very tasty. Very good wine and beer selections as well. It is a nice restaurant but you can dress in nice shorts for dinner. Google listed the restaurant as closed on Sunday but it is open. I recommend.
