Quirky local with excellent food, drinks, and service!

Picked this place as a rendezvous point for 6 of our family - 4 adults, 1 3-yr old, 1 6-yr-old. 6-yr-old uses a wheelchair. No issues with access. Had made a reservation for 1:30, but turned up at 11:30 - no problem whatsoever. Extremely friendly, efficient service. Server (Brittney) was attentive... read more

This place is great for a hot day. The pool is clean and refreshing. There is a restaurant with great food and drinks you can bring out to the pool. My son always had a blast and meets lots of new friends.

I can not say enough good things about the Trout Farm Inn. Kelly and Yvonne are great at what they do and have going on there. We had a great time at the pool and enjoyed great food, drinks and service provided by their staff. If you are in the Felton area and you have some time I suggest stopping... More

When we read the reviews we were a little concerned, but stopped by anyway because we use to go there with our parents 40+ years ago. The food was pretty good, but I think there is a shortage of dish wear and wine glasses. We sat on the deck and there was some deferred maintenance to the building. Talked to... More

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 Bay Area, but the food... 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
