Reviewed 18 June 2014

The ever popular Brown Trout serves up an eclectic mix of fish (trout the most obvious served several different ways); poultry; meat; pasta and there's even pizza. Service can sometimes be slow, but you're in the mountains, so don't go here if you are on a schedule or have small children that need special attention. Instead relax and enjoy another glass of wine. The food is good and the atmosphere is "mountain cozy" ... in fact, in the winter there is always a warm fire awaiting you.

“Food wonderful.service awful.”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

The food was wonderful. Screwed up our order.never brought salads. Waited forever for our wine.may be just a bad night. 2 1/2 hours for the whole meal. Service is owner's fault. Needed more people and a wait staff that can think.

Thank you very much for your review, and apologies for the slow service

We are hiring more servers now and getting some additional training for the ones we have so that our service can match the quality of our food.

We really appreciate your feedback, as it informs us of what still needs improvement.

“A Gem in the Mountains!”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

We did not expect to enjoy the restaurant as much as we did. We thought a place in the middle of the mountains without much around would not be much in terms of food. Boy were we wrong. The service, menu selection, and overall attitude which is welcoming and happy made our time there very enjoyable.
