Description: Went their for dinner on Satruday night. Head and shoulders above any other options in Mount Airy. Chef Wishart, formerly at Cross Creek Country Club, does a great job. Trio has only been open 4 weeks. Very nice menu and list of daily specials. EWell chsen and decently priced wine list. Celebrated my father's 96 birthday and we were not disappointed!! Very memorable evening.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary last night with a wonderful meal. The food was great. Our kids had given us a $60 gift certificate and we had a restaurant certificate (coupon) that had been purchased online from Restaurant.com that we also wanted to use. Keep in mind that Trios is listed as being a restaurant honoring the purchased... More

Started with the shrimp spring rolls and they weren't particularly good. The steak was very good, if slightly under-cooked. They have a full bar, which is nice. Service was friendly. Atmosphere is nice.

As a resident of Mt. Airy and a lover of fine dining, I am thrilled to have Trio here. The food is fresh, local, and seasonal. The presentation is beautiful, and the dishes are creative. After dinner (or sometimes even lunch), I like to have a cocktail or 2 at the small, yet well equipped bar. Trio is always a... More

We stopped in Andy Griffith's hometown of Mount Airy, and had a fabulous dinner at Trio. My husband orders wild salmon as often as he can find it, and said it was the "best he's had in a long time." The carmelized onion and goat cheese tart was scrumptious, and the spinach salad was delicious. It was a great meal... More

A recent trip down the Blue Ridge Parkway brought us into the the Mt Airy area. Our Trip Advisor friends recommended a stop at Trio.....Thanks for the inviting reviews. We were not disappointed. This is a weekend hot spot for the area apparently. We had no reservations, and there were no available tables, but we were able to take advantage... More

We were a little reluctant to eat dinner here as we had seen there was not too many really great restaurants in the downtown area. Lots of ok places, but we wanted something special. Well, we found one. Located just a little out of the way off Main st, but not so much as to make it hard to find.... More

Ate Lunch here during the Mayberry Days Festival. Food was excellent. They had a variety on the menu and a lunch special that day. Had the grilled chicken sandwich with mushroom soup. Have also had the chicken salad. Would recommend either one!

This is definitely Mt. Airy's best restaurant. Enjoyed the shrimp, scallops and crab cakes along with a few appetizers, soup and Caesar salad all excellent. There is full cocktail service with all top shelf liquor at reasonable prices. Our waitress Chynna was a real gem.

While a little off the beaten path, and can be hard to find, it is most definitely worth it!!! Everyone is very polite, and will help in anyway possible. Chris the head chef and owner walks the place and chats with the guests often. Every time I am in the area, I make sure I stop!

After all the places touting Andy Griffith and Barney and Goober, it was kind of a surprise to find this gem. The food was excellent. I had a really nice fried oyster salad - a dozen friend oysters on a bed of spinach with gorgonzola and a citrus dressing. It was excellent. My husband had the chicken sandwich; he said... More
