The Smoky Mountain Trout House in Gatlinburg is a small family owned business. It is isn't fancy or flashy. It is just a good restaurant! As stated by other reviewers, they prepare fresh mountain trout in about everyday you can imagine. Several of my family members ordered the Parmesan trout and absolutely loved it! I ordered the whole grilled trout... More

We saw all the great reviews of this place, so we went to try it. When we went in we were greeted by a server who we told we wanted to order take out. She then asked another worker who responded "No, we are too busy to do a takeout!" The server heard this, so did we and probably everyone... More

We visited on a busy Friday evening, and we were warmly welcomed by any employee we came in contact with. Our trout was cooked and seasoned to sublime perfection....I have eaten trout all over the country, and this was as good as ANY, and at value pricing. When in Gatlinburg, take a break from the chain restaurants and see what... More

The cole slaw is hand made so are the salad dressings. Have eaten all over the US and this is the best of both the honey mustard and cole slaw. The staff and the ownership is local so you get the local flavor, friendly helpful. The clam chowder was silky smooth and not heavy, with hunks of clams. The house... More

We always eat at the local places when on vacation and the Trout House was a great find. The table where we sat was a little close to the adjacent table, but it was still comfortable. The restaurant has free parking across the street, a bonus in Gatlinburg. Everyone in my group had some form of trout and it was... More

First of all, make sure you make a reservation! Fortunately, we did and were seated within 10 minutes. I saw many families and couples leave because they did not have a reservation and it would be at least an hour. I ordered the "Trout Eisenhower" since it was the specialty of the house. The fish was very fresh and not... More

Had dinner with the in-laws. Things were packed and was glad to have reservation. Service was a little slow because they were so busy. When things slowed down we got great service and had a good talk with our server. This is '80 style dining. Salad was iceberg with a good mix toppings including dry cranberries. Beer was served in...

When we first saw the name of this place, we laughed and imagined some kind of smoked trout fish dip hut. But it was right next to our hotel and we were looking for some good food and my wife wanted some prime rib. The Trout House had the cheapest prime rib we saw and it was tasty. The trout... More

And the trout was delightful as well. Quaint old-fashioned decor and very good service. We've already decided to come back.
