We stopped here for lunch while in town for a rally, after our first choice had no parking. Given that we are not steak eaters, we may not be the best reviewers for this restaurant. But I do love salmon, and I ordered the blackened salmon dinner. My husband couldn't find any option to his liking so ordered the lemon-pepper... More

Pleasant service but below average food. Everything seemed canned or from the freezer. The locals that were there seemed to enjoy it.

Excellent service. Well kept restaurant. Small but good salad bar. Steak had some gristle but flavor was outstanding. Trout was also very good and fresh. Suitable for couples or families.

My husband, son, daughter-in-law, and 11-month-old grandson enjoyed a delicious meal here. Our server was very attentive, the warm chips and queso were a great starter, our steaks perfectly cooked, salad greens very fresh, and the mashed potatoes, garlic fries and green beans were all tasty.

This was the first time in a while that I've eaten everything on my plate. The steak was delicious and my wife enjoyed her fried chicken salad. Total cost for us both was around $27.

Stopped in last night for dinner. Samantha was our waitress and is honestly what made our whole experience. Although we came in at the last minute she was still very nice and attentive to us. Small town so everything closes super early, FYI! The food was really good and came out quick. Would definitely stop here again!

Dropped in for a late lunch on a Saturday. Excellent, attentive service. Wife had steak cooked and seasoned just the way she likes it. Son says burger was very good. He also liked the garlic seasoned fries. My lemon pepper trout was above average but not by much. I really liked the potato bites my wife had though. Cubed baked... More

We have passed by so many times and never visited the steakhouse. They, also , have burgers, and some fish choices. It is a white tablecloth restaurant and during summer months, we were told they have waits up to 2 hrs. Reservations are accepted. Service: Very good Food: Very good Plenty of parking. Waiting area until your table is ready.... More

Description
At Trailhead we focus more on the quality and perfection of our food and service than anything else. Our prices are the same or cheaper than all of our local competitors. Only difference is we try to offer more of a fine dining restaurant experience such as decorating our plates and the table cloths and candle light adds a very lovely touch. For the same price we pamper you with our generous hospitality. Come give us a shot, your Trailhead Steak & Trout House. Steven Haley (General Manager) has had excessive feedback from folks wondering why there was not a TRAILHEAD STEAKHOUSE in other areas, so keep an eye out for a TRAILHEAD STEAKHOUSE coming to a town near YOU!
