Good but not great

Very nice to have some well prepared fish for dinner - go for the trout as it seems to be their speciality. Overall it felt like a bit of a throwback to the 1980's - only served a four course dinner, other than the fish the selections felt a little dated. I'm 50+ but felt like a kid in the... read more

An earlier reviewer noted "I don't think we ever waited more than 5 minutes, if at all, between courses" and seemed to like that. In our case, it's the reason for dropping a rating from four to three stars. The restaurant wasn't all that busy. We weren't even close to the fireplace and there was no one waiting for a... More

When we walked in I liked the place. Cute, homey feeling dining room with a large fireplace! Server was friendly and attentive but food was overpriced for breakfast and sub par. My breakfast potatoes had no seasoning at all and were cold and dry. They tasted days old. My omelet was fine once I salted it but not hot either.... More

Didn't make a reservation but they got us a table anyway. Food was good, service was excellent, timing was perfect. We enjoyed a four course meal and I don't think we ever waited more than 5 minutes, if at all, between courses. You have to get a drink with Sarg at the bar before sitting down for dinner. He is...

Mountain trout any way you can imagine and some of the best prime rib anywhere. Servers are amazing.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Fryemont Inn and a full breakfast and dinner were included with our stay. You order off the menu with numerous selections of fresh trout, steaks, chicken and even lamb shanks. Salads, soup, main, dessert, and beverages were all included. We sat by the large fireplace and were served by a very accommodating... More

Our weekend stay at the Fryemont Inn included breakfasts and dinners at their dining room daily. It was suggested we make reservations early for the seating time of our choice. Friday and Saturday nights were busy. The bar allowed us a comfortable place fireside to wait for our table while enjoying wine, beer and mixed drinks at very reasonable prices.... More

First off, the sides are served 'family style'. Not like you would think. The sides are selected for you. I didnt like the fact that if we wanted sides with our trout it was going to have to be lima beans, macaroni & cheese and stewed apples. Neither tasted good and the apples still had the skin on them.
