We love having dinner at The Brown Trout and this past visit was wonderful, as usual. I had the traditional trout and it was cooked to perfection and served hot with a delicious lemon caper sauce. We will be back again soon.

Thank you very much for your review.

The traditional trout is one of my favorites. The trout is local Carolina Mountain trout and the Lemon Caper sauce is made daily in-house.

We greatly appreciate your feedback and look forward to seeing you again!

We have been loyal customers of the Brown Trout since it's opening. Excellent menu choice, food is fresh and well prepared and we are always warmly welcomed. Lamb, fish,steak all prepared in creative ways and full of flavor. A favorite of our family and from time to time you can find all eleven of us there.

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.

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.

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.
