Food was pretty good. We all had a variation on trout. Lots of options there, but the menu does not offer a ton of other options. That's fine though. If you're going there it should be for the specialty anyway. Staff was friendly and the portions are good. Their fish does contain bones since it is fresh and they do... More

the food here was just ok. I ordered their signature trout but the taste was bland. I wished they had cooked the trout better. The waiter was a bit cold when he saw me as an Asian but the young waitress was pretty nice.

They have so many ways to cook trout. We were here for the 63rd Annual Wildfower Pilgrimage and came back in 2017 for the 67th ~ so have tried the trout a few ways. My favorite so far is the grilled ~ Oh My!

Everyone at the table tried a variation of the trout. I had the smoked whole trout with grilled onions and mushrooms and it was definitely the best of the bunch. Overall, it was our best dinner in Gatlinburg.

This restaurant was right beside our hotel, so location was great for us. My husband had the blackened trout, I had the lemon broiled. For the price (about $20 each), it was wonderful. The fish was flavorful and... More

I wanted local food and didn't want a chain restaurant and this fit just right. The food was excellent from the cole slaw to the hush puppies and fish and grilled veggies....everything was fresh and really good and plated nicely. Our server was great and the food came fairly quickly considering how busy it was.I thought the prices were reasonable... More

The variety of Trout dishes cooked in different ways is very impressive. I really enjoyed the food and the quantity with the salad is very generous!

Trout choices many ways - fresh and served just as they promise- nothing to write home about- kitschy- mountiny- better than a chain place- but not fantastic- prices were good- roughly $20+

Thank Outlanders

Smoky Mountain Trout House prides itself on offering absolutely the freshest trout in Gatlinburg. Our trout are ice packed directly to the restaurant. Once it has arrived we take great care in our preparing your selection exactly as you like. All of the trout served in this restaurant are Rainbow Trout, grown in the sparkling clear waters of the Smokies. The purity and flavor of mountain trout offered great pleasure to the original settlers of the Smokies. So... have a seat, rest a spell and you, too, can enjoy a special treat... real Smoky Mountain trout! Thank you for visiting us and remember to treat yourself to trout... It's as good as all outdoors!
