My husband and I found ourselves in Delavan, Wisconsin yesterday at lunch time. We thought that Rushing Waters Trout House looked like a promising place to eat. Recently opened, it is spacious and clean, with very high ceilings. The menu didn’t provide a number of gluten free options, so I ordered the Rainbow Trout Shore Lunch – pan fried – for $14.00. It was nicely prepared and presented, and came with cooked-just-right vegetables, thin French fries and cole slaw. The slaw had a slightly tangy taste which I liked very much. My husband had the same lunch, except he order his with a side of potato pancakes instead of French fries. We were both quite pleased with our lunch.
I regret that I didn’t take photos of the restaurant or my meal.
If you live in the northwestern suburbs of Chicago, Delavan is only about 25 minutes from Harvard, or about 45 minutes from Woodstock. Maybe you have friends in Milwaukee you’d like to meet for dinner, or you’d like a place to stop on your way north. If Rushing Waters Trout House continues to meet its early promise, it would be very much worth a try.
