OMG

The best, the very best, pan fried trout in town. The atmosphere is somewhat weird, but get at it and you'll joy some of the freshest and most wonderful trout you have ever had

Met the long time owner and Mary, our server who has been working there for many, many years, and they couldn't have been nicer people to meet! The food was great, the hushpuppies absolutely melt in your mouth. If you are a true fish lover and love trout, this is the place for you! They serve trout many different ways... More

I love love love visiting the Smoky Mountain Trout House when in Gatlinburg. Very cozy with fireplace inside and delicious trout. (last ate here in Dec 14, but tripadvisor only went back to Feb 15) I will be back next weekend though! Looking forward to the trout, some wine, and the hush puppies.

This place was suggested to us by our hotel. It is a quaint little "mom & pop" type of place... nothing fancy. The trout? The trout is DELICIOUS!! They brought every part of the meal out in separate little dishes...the coleslaw, hush puppies, etc, all had their own dish... made for a crowded table. Did I mention that the trout... More

My husband said the key lime pie was to die for! And I personally loved the coconut crème pie! We sat right next to the fireplace and just the... More

My husband and I found the Trout House on our first visit to the Smokies in 1983. We may not make it to the Smokies as often as we did in the past when the kids were young; but when we do, we ALWAYS eat at the Trout House. The food is always good and on some trips, depending where... More

Great food, great service. Our waitress was elderly, but sweet as could be. Feels like its family run. Trout fritters and all the trout ordered was really good and fresh tasting. The clam chowder is very tasty too. Many of the trout entrees have bones, so you may want to ask if this is an issue for you. Kids had... More

Our family ate here for the first time last night. It is the best food in the Smokies. The staff is super friendly and the dressings, sauces, etc are homemade by one of the patrons. The trout is fresh and right out of the local streams. Looking forward to taking my family back. Do yourself a favor and go eat... More
