This was our first visit to Trailhead and we loved it! The decor was so cool. I was really impressed with the carvings on the tables. The food was delicious and even the kids cleaned their plates. We will definitely be back again. I highly recommend it. Read more about our trip at www.randomfamilyadventures.com

Burgers and beer hit the spot! I had the fish tacos and it was a wonderful late night meal. We enjoyed our visit and the musician was excellent! I felt like I was in Vermont, it should have been snowing! Will be back.

An impromptu “meeting in the middle” on New Year’s Eve was an awesome success. My husband drove in from East Tennessee and I from eastern North Carolina … The Trailhead was our reunion spot! Singles, couples, families, a band jam, good food … everyone welcome. Happy New Year!

This place has a great selection of everything for a great night out. Live music, good beer selection and the food ain't bad. I have heard the soup on special Thursday is the best but haven't tried it yet. We usually just get wings and salad. Good fun time!

My husband and I have been to the Trailhead several times but this is my first review. We enjoy the variety of items on the menu. Their french fries are THE best and the onion rings are among the best we ever had. They have an excellent variety of beers on tap, including selections from the local microbrewery, Lookout.

The chili is great. All food is made on site - nothing from a can here. Fair warning though - it fills up quickly, but the wait is worth it.

Trailhead gives you lots of options in food and drink. Good selection of local beers, good fish and chips, burgers and pub food.

Couldn't decide where to have dinner the one night in town, and TA appeared torn. We decided to walk and found this to be the choice of most people. It was the right choice for us. Our waitress was helpful with selecting food and drink without being too present. The burger was wonderful and the nachos hit the spot by... More

My wife and I had dinner for the first time at the Trailhead today. We both enjoyed the experience. She head the portabello mushroom burger and a vegetable curry soup. I had a black and blue burger that included shrimp with its toppings. The Trailhead carries a nice selection of area beers on draft. The atmosphere is just what I... More

Atmosphere and food are average. There is lots of seating, so good if you have a large number of people. Local beers on tap. Traditional bar food is what is mostly offering and it's okay. Have been here a few times and will probably not go back.
