Great trout

The smoked trout was superb, followed by the dill trout. The restaurant is very small with only about 12 tables. We were able to walk right in but there were three tables with reserved signs on them. The service was very good and the waitress was very friendly.

Great service at this traditional place. Delicious trout! The Trout House has a very familiar atmosphere with delicately prepared trout dishes. We did not try the steaks but they looked wonderful too.

Food was ok, and service was "just ok". Nothing bad, but nothing great. I felt let down and I remember going here as a kid and it was awesome.

If you like trout you will love the many different ways to enjoy it. They have like 14 different ways to try it and I can,t wait to go back and try something new. The cost is over $20 but that includes 2 sides and a heathy size piece of trout. This is my new favorite restaurant in Gatlinburg. Mary... More

If You would like to eat a very good trout I would suggest you to go there. The restaurant inside look very nice and I felt like in a mountain cottage. People are very nice and kind and the food is very delicious. I really enjoyed that dinner over there. It was little bit expensive but worth it.

I wasn't sure about this being the first restaurant driving into town. We figured it'd be overpriced and not a lot of food. We checked it out, both of us excited for trout. We were pleased to find it was local and delicious. I got the parmeasean crusted and my husband got the dilly. We live at the beach and... More
