My wife and I enjoyed Sunday lunch at the Speckled Trout. Great, attentive and knowledgable servers. Innovative menu. Food was fresh and delicious. Ordered the bean soup and cobb salad. Hoecakes with sorghum butter is amazing. Good energy and ambiance in the restaurant. Highly recommend.

The Speckled Trout impressed with its local, sweetly southern ingredients. Peruse the bottle shop that expands from the entrance, and at least one energetic and eager server (or owner, wow!) will talk you through every flavor profile of their immaculate beer and wine presentation. I...More

Loved this restaurant! The menu was different but very good. The homemade fries were some of the best I have had. Newly reopened under ner owners. All food is locally grown. If I am ever up that way will definitely go again

We had dinner in the restaurant on Saturday night and it was enjoyable. When we returned home from vacation found that the restaurant had over charged our credit card. Would not recommend this restaurant unless you are paying with cash.

Located in downtown Blowing Rock- on the corner of Main Street and 221- is the newly renovated and reinvented restaurant and bottle shop. We explore the roots of Appalachian food and beverage culture, and recreate it in our kitchen by preserving and reviving ingredients of our local heritage. To accompany the celebration of our regional dishes, our new beverage program focuses on terroir driven libations. The term terroir evokes a sense of place, and in our shop this is evident in everything we do. The bottle shop emphasizes traditions of fermentation practices by offering some of the best “home-grown” beers and ciders around. In addition, our wines highlight small producers from old world to new.
