Great place for lunch. I had trout which was very good. My husband had a hamburger which was good also. Homemade dressings were delicious. Turtle cheesecake was great. Our server,Amber, did an outstanding job of a tending to our needs. We will return.

We had a late lunch here after traveling all day. It was ok, but very country. My husband enjoyed it, but I was disappointed. Service was good, but food was non-descript at best. The fresh trout (farm-raised) was over cooked and the cheese soup tasted like flour. Edible, but not great.

We were on our way home from pigeon forge to Cleveland tn.. about a 2.5 hour drive. We passed this place on our way in and thought it looked hopeful. So we pulled in a gave it try on our way home and it was beyond disappointing. Walked in to an extremely quiet atmosphere. I immediately asked the hostess if... More

Impromptu visit on New Years Eve after visiting the west end of GSM park. There was about a 15-20 minute wait but service was friendly and quick once we were seated. The sirloin steak was cooked to perfection. Will definitely return when in the area!

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!
