The trout is beautifully prepared. Actually so is every thing else. Great wine list. Twinking lights are s special romantic touch. Owner is very friendly. He has another restaurant nearer Lake Toxaway that serves a very gourmet panini turkey and brie sandwich. It was so huge I ate the rest for dinner that night. Quite a suprise to be in the mountains of NC. Will return with friends

Nicely cooked with a taste delight. I'm going tomorrow for my 5th time. A real surprise in the middle of nowhere.

This place has a fun atmosphere, you can get your trout fixed anyway you like. But unfortunately mine was very dry and a bit over cooked. The service is slow, but the waitress was very pleasant. A good place, just not great.

Eat here every year we visit Toxaway. It never disappoints. We showed up at this popular place on a Sat night w/out a reservation, but they gave us the last table within minutes. We had a great meal that started w fried green tomatoes. Cindy was our waitress and she was fabulous! The kids had an awesome pizza and my wife and I both had filet mignon. One was a little overcooked but we didn't complain as it was still good. Cindy split a Sunday brownie for our three girls and she didn't skimp! Great place to eat. Pricey, but so is everything in Toxaway area. Decor is a bit dated, but ads to the rustic charm you would expect at a restaurant named the Brown Trout. Sort of fish-campy.

Ask to be seated at one of Candace's tables. Superb friendly knowledgeable service. Three of us had trout, the fourth had a wood fired pizza (pepperoni, basil, mozzarella). Trout was excellent - no bones and cooked perfectly - very moist. The salt and pepper cornmeal fried trout with jalapeño honey glaze (we asked for it on the side) was the best trout I have ever had anywhere. House salad was cold and crisp and the house Roquefort dressing was fantastic. Nice wine list and the prices were very reasonable for both Woodbridge as the house wine and for the Sonoma Cutrer that we chose. We will definitely come back - many more items on the menu looked very tempting though it will be hard to change from the trout! Almost forgot - atmosphere is charming with maybe 12 tables and a small bar - large stone fireplace - lots of little white Christmas lights and dried boughs decorating the ceiling. Cozy.
