If you really like fresh mountain trout, this is the place for you. Really anything on their menu is outstanding but the trout, prepared 5 ways, is special. The ambiance of the old dining room will take you back to the early 1900's as well.

We have been coming here for many years. Everyone that works here including the owners are like family. The food is excellent. They have the best prime rib we have ever eaten and we've traveled all over the US. If you want to go back in time and you just want to relax and have wonderful food come here.

Since we stay at the Inn the meals are included. They are a big reason I have been coming here for many years. Traditional Southern cooking at breakfast and dinner. The entree menu at dinner is exceptionally large and the sides are served family style. There are usually seven or eight desserts to choose from, and they change daily.

We had dinner here the other night with two other couples. A wonderful, historic Inn with great food. Fresh trout fillets prepared five different ways, excellent prime rib and the service was outstanding. The entrée price includes soup, salad, three different vegetables, and three to four different homemade desserts. The vegetables are served family style in bowls and can be... More

We were here with a large group of folks, and the restaurant did a fantastic job of accommodating everyone seamlessly. We were seated in 15 minute time increments to allow the wait staff to not have to serve everyone at the exact same time, and it worked really well. The meals (breakfast and dinner) are included in the price of... More

We stayed for four nights at the Fryemont Inn, which includes full breakfast and dinner in room rate. The menu provides plenty of options. They use fresh ingredients, are creative (e.g. 3 different bowls of well-seasoned and delicately-cooked vegetables with each dinner), and the wait staff is friendly & attentive.
