I don't know how we missed this place over the years, except that we hadn't stayed at that end of Gatlinburg before. We were celebrating our 42nd anniversary (honeymoon spent in the Smokies). I had a craving for really good, fresh mountain trout, and I wasn't disappointed. They serve it at least ten different ways, and mine was the traditional crispy pan fried with cornmeal flour coating. It doesn't get any fresher. We will definitely be going back there when in Gatlinburg. Hushpuppies were great as an appetizer, and key lime pie for dessert was scrumptious. Their prices are very good as compared with other places that don't serve trout nearly as good, and the owner is in the restaurant making sure everything is to your satisfaction. The décor is very pleasant, but it is not a fancy place if you are looking for that. It is the kind of place that gives you the local flavor in several ways. It provided the old Gatlinburg feel that is so traditional in comparison with many of the glitzy, new establishments. To me they make you feel like you aren't any place different than what's at home, but the trout house brought back the Gatlinburg I had grown up with and come to love.
