Great Deals on Tues and Wed

Ate dinner here on a midweek dash to Santa Cruz. On Tues and Wed they have some great price cuts from their menu, but all in all the dining experience was not the best. Perhaps we're spoiled by the amazing choices of restaurants and bounty of great local ingredients available to us in the greater... read more

Pretty good food from burgers to pasta. Chicken or veggie burger can be substituted for any hamburger, and they have tasty Mac n cheese - enough for 2 meals! Go there Tuesday or Wednesdays for $5 meal deals (esp. The Mac n cheese), you can't go wrong! This place has interesting character and great staff! I only wish there were... More

Stopped by to catch a World Series game. The place was nearly empty on a Saturday at 6 pm. Outside the pool looked clean, but the women's bathroom had a dirty floor and scuzzy black grime on the bathroom door. Remember, a restaurant kitchen is not any cleaner than the restrooms. The men's bathroom smelled so bad it should have... More

Drove up E. Zayante Road to grab some dinner at the Trout Farm Inn. Sat out on the deck by the creek which was very pleasant on a warm summer day. The inn is more of an upscale burger and sandwich place but has some tasty dinner dishes. We started with the Caprese Salad with tomatoes and mozarella arranged on... More

Went with friends for the $5 dinner specials. OK, it was edible, filling and cheap and the service was terrific and the waiter was cute. It wasn't great food (my husband and I both hated the mac and cheese) but the chicken and rice and his trout ($10) were quite good. The key lime pie was good and there was... More

For the past few years, our friends, who live in Felton, have mentioned the Trout Farm Inn for dining, but said their past few experiences were horrible. BUT, this past weekend, we went for brunch with the kids (ages 5 & 3.) Primarily, because after brunch, we could go to the pool, which is right outside. What a laid-back experience!... More

Any restauranteur would fall over backwards to have their joint packed on a Tuesday or Wednesday evening. The Trout Farm is doing a promotion that is almost unbelievable. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, they are featuring $5 dinners. That's right - no typo here - FIVE DOLLAR DINNERS! I've been several times (I only live 1/2 mile away!), and I'm always... More

We visited on a Saturday night and the place was busy at 7PM. We were seated right away but if we had showed up 30 minutes later it might have been tough. But that's unusual; I'd say that 99% of the time, you'll have no trouble getting seated. The service was really perfect. It's clear that the folks who run... More

We went to eat dinner and listen to a band. We had steak and veggies, a cheeseburger, macaroni and cheese (home made) and a kid's burger. The steak and veggies were cooked perfectly. It is supposed to be served with mashed potatoes, but I had the potatoes subbed for extra veggies. The cheeseburger was really good too, but my husband... More
