“Good Food,Good Service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

We had the pleasure of dining at The Trout recently and we were impressed by the level of service and the gorgeous food we ordered! We were running late and phoned to notify the restaurant, which was not a problem. We were promptly seated and presented menus. The specials were explained to us and when I indicated that I had dietary requirements, alternatives were offered. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, the portions sizes were good, the cooking of the food perfect and the flavours exceptional. We will most definately visit the Trout again!

“Poor food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Trout was busy but no problem getting a table. Waitress was helpful although no extra cutlery was supplied for the entrée. The entrée was not as described in the menu, it was ok but drenched in balsamic vinegar. When we complained that the calamari was not breaded as described she said the crumbs were very fine!! a bit like the emperors new clothes!! One main was Ok the other really inedible, and again drenched in balsamic, we were offered another main but declined. The menu was limited we decided not to have desert. The place was extremely noisy it was a relief to get out side.

my wife and I were the first and only diners for dinner.waited for 45 minutes for two steaks - one was overdone and one was underdone. we were going to have desserts but decided we didn't have that long to live! to cap of the night we paid more than twice what the meal was worth. we heartily recommend KEEP LOOKING.

“Very nice lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We stopped for lunch on our way to Cromwell. Very nice location. The food was wonderful. There were 4 of us. Each one of us something different and enjoyed it. I had the seafood chowder. Probably one the best I have ever had. Highly recommend you stop for a bite to eat at Trout.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

What a lovely location to eat!
For $19 the Thai beef Salad is excellent value. The service was excellent as well, and I had some nice conversations with both of the waitresses working.
Highly recommendable!
