We have been here before and loved it! I wish I could say that again. Im not sure what has changed but the food was not good at all. The service was good but a bit slow. Normally I wouldnt say anything but for the price you pay it should have been better. Gatlinburg has many other great places for the money. Sorry but we have to disagree with these other reviews.
Hi. I stayed at the Rodeway Inn and kept smelling this wonderful aroma drifting up to my balcony. After two nights, we had to follow our noses. It led us to The Trout House. My boyfriend had never tried trout, so was impresed by the menu. The hushpuppies and cole slaw are amazing! The trout was prepared and served nicely. The restaurant was very cozy and quaint, the service was excellent. The owner even took a few moments to speak with us about the bear that had been using the same sidewalk we had to get to our room. LOL. Overall, a very pleasant experience!
Ate at the Trout House a couple of years ago and looked forward to returning due to the great experience we had last time. We were very disappointed. The hush puppies were inedible. The cole slaw was inedible. The smoked trout was dried out and had a burned as opposed to smoked taste. The trout was served with all bones intact. (OK for some adults - bad for a child's plate) The unsmoked trout servings were overdosed with what appeared to be paprika. Bad background music. The Trout House has run off the tracks and needs a complete overhaul. Hope they can turn it around. We ate there on 07/24/09
We've been here more than once, but our much looked forward to Trout Eisenhour was nothing like we expected. It's no longer prepared in the same way and the disappointment was only rivaled by how much we had to pay for this letdown. The 'sauteed' onions and mushrooms were raw, contrary to the menu, all 7 orders. The trout was fine as far as plain trout goes, but their method of frying the whole cleaned fish and then deboning at the table has now given way to 'fileted' off premises. The only 'good' came from the sole person who had fried shrimp.
Bottom line, we will never darken their door again. The folks who rave about this place as it exists now obviously don't have a point of comparison.
Dined 12/26/07. Our dinning experince was wonderful. The resturant was small with a rustic look and a nice fireplace in the center of the room. The waitress was very nice and sociable. The trout fritters and soup were excelent. They made my wife and I feel like family. We are going back up next week from New Orleans were the food is excellent. We plan to dine there again. Go early before the busy time begins.
