We went back again last weekend and had a very nice dinner. Our service was very prompt and everything was delivered in a timely manner. We had one of the trout dishes and the shrimp and chicken pasta. Both were very good. It's a cozy place that we enjoy.

We wanted a special evening the night after Christmas but got a highly disappointing experience at a very exorbitant price in a extremely cold (temperature) restaurant.

The meal inauspiciously started with a heavily salted French onion soup and crab & shrimp bisque which were too salty and were sent back. Others in our party had the Cesar salad and fried green tomatoes which were very good and gave us hope for the main course.

Unfortunately the main courses were a complete disaster: burnt pizzas, grainy Alfredo sauce with pasta, and tasteless, dry chicken fingers (fries were good).

We ended our culinary hardship with two great desserts: the Fudge cake and ice cream sundae were excellent.

First time for me and my husband...dear friends who live there took us out to dinner. Recommend the shrimp and grits as an appetizer....we each had a different dish of trout...all were excellent. Can't wait to go back.

We all had different prep of trout and all were done beautifully. Service was very good. The key line pie was great. We will all return.

The atmosphere at Brown Trout gives the appearance of an upscale restaurant, but the service tells a different story. They were unable/unwilling to accommodate our party, and the good food did not make up for the rudeness and lack of attention from the wait staff and owner. I will not be returning, nor would I recommend it to anyone.
