Great food, have the trout if you like fish. It is great. Their dumplings are also great. The vegetables served with the food are all home cooked seeming and the atmosphere is great. Staff is always super friendly. We always go early especially on weekends as it can get very busy causing waiting times.

Unfortunatley for me and my guest that was visiting from Texas, we did not get to eat at the Jarrett House as it closes Mon. - Friday in November and all but two weeks in December which is the only time we could go. Next time!

Great food, we had the fried chicken. If you don't care for chicken you may chose catfish, roast beef, or trout and they make sure you never run out of biscuits! Green beans, mashed potatoes, yellow corn, cooked apples, lots of desert choices. We brought home our left overs. Small Town friendliness, in a quaint, turn of the century plantation... More

We've been going to Jarrett House for more than 30 years and it never disappoints. The food is wonderful and the owners and staff are both efficient and friendly. Don't let the lines scare you off. They move quickly and it's worth the wait.

This was our first time to the Jarrett House after reading a number of reviews. The building is old, but clean with a very nice cordial staff. The food is served "family style" with your entree & sides served in bowls. The mountain trout was about the best I have had. The biscuits were hot & wonderful. The mashed potatoes... More

The atmosphere was very quaint and the food was excellent! I had fried chicken and my husband had roast beef. Best chicken - and hubby said "this is the best roast beef I have ever had". Real mashed potatoes - real everything else. We were served shortly after we were seated and the service was great. I give Jarrett House... More

Came here from a train ride and decided to try some home style food. I'm from the south, so chicken and dumplings were an obvious choice. We had a short 5 minute wait and were seated in a dining room style eatery. Our order was taken quickly, and at first I felt a little worried that there would not be... More

Actually, I don't know how the food or service may be because I couldn't even get inside. I use a wheelchair and the only entrance I could find has steps. Have they heard of the ADA?

Seated immediately, served immediately, a genuine dining pleasure. Excellent ambiance with genuine historical touches. Love the front porch rocking chairs.
