Tuckaleechee Trout Farm & Restaurant in Townsend, TN outside the Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Pond Fishing

Routinely described as the "Peaceful Side of the Smokies", Townsend, Tennessee has much to offer the first-time or long-time Smokies traveler. Townsend, in which contains one of the most popular entrance points to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, also boasts the easiest entranceway to Cades Cove – the park's most renowned attraction. Unknown to many though is that Townsend also happens to be the locale of the best trout farm restaurant in the region.

Owned and operated by Larry and Sue Smith, the Tuckaleechee Trout Farm Restaurant simply serves great food and provides excellent service, all at a great price. Cleaning TroutThe menu features fresh-caught trout or grab a rod and catch your own from the farm's spring-fed ponds (per minute, the spring pumps 1,000 gallons), and your fresh-caught trout will be prepared by the staff.

The trout is broiled or fried to your liking and served with fresh vegetables (in season) and hushpuppies that are to die for. A word of advice, always leave enough room for some blackberry cobbler with vanilla ice cream (they also have various other fresh fruit cobblers).

Trout Restaurant Dining Room

Though we prefer trout, the Smiths also serve chicken, steak and fried shrimp entrees. They'll even grill you up a nice hamburger if fresh trout isn't your cup of tea, yet.
