This was one of the few times we have stopped at a restaurant without first checking reviews. We should have taken our cue from the fact that there was only one other couple for lunch. The two people with us enjoyed their lunches (one had...More

The Brown Trout is no longer. The River Rock Grille just opened in the same building (thought totally remodeled).

They were still waiting for their Liquor License when we were there. We had their French Onion Soup, it was like Day Old Dishwater! Not cooked long enough, Thin and Tasteless. Some of the Onions were still half Raw!

My father used to eat here many years ago. He loved it so we thought we'd give it a try. As we drove into town, we say that Vivio's restaurant was packed. We thought we'd find the same at the Brown Trout. The lot was...More
