Correct name is Rockbridge Trout & Game Ranch. To say it's in the middle of nowhere is an understatement but there was a crowd of fishermen and diners here on a lovely fall Friday afternoon. Seating was slow even though we had a reservation, but once at a table the service was attentive. Good beer selection, trout sampler appetizer was... More

We ate at the lodge after fishing. Surprised at the amount of time it took for two rueben sandwiches, fried trout, and a chicken fried steak took to cook. It was thirty minutes and there were only 4 other tables. It was also at 3:00 pm, so there wasn't a lunch rush. Overall the food was good, but the Reuben's... More

We have eaten at the Trout Ranch many times. I would have to say the quality of the food is just average and has been falling for the last several years. The prices have gone up about 35% on top of that. When we first went there some 7 years ago the food was excellent. The trout dishes were always... More

The appetisers came in 3 separate stages now almost an hour after arrival. Despite this and with the appetisers not yet finished, along came the main courses. With no rest in... More

This restaurant is nowhere near any city or other restaurant in it's league. The setting is one of the most beautiful in mo. with a mill across the street and a trout stream with lots of people fishing. The gardens out front were in full bloom and I was stunned to find the interior so inviting and rustically charming. The... More

I was pleased with our meal. I had the trout special and thought it was great. My husband had chicken which was mediocre. Nothing phenomenal, but certainly acceptable for the price paid.

I had won a free ride at the resort at the Spring Roundup drawing. I could not go the weekend that it was planned for and Rock Bridge was very accommodating to let me pick another weekend to come. Although there was some concerns the weekend I wanted to come was during turkey hunt they allowed me to come if... More

Nice drive. Beautiful scenery and great food. Save room for dessert. This historic mill has a diverse menu but the trout is outstanding and u can have it served in multiple ways from blackened to almondeen. A great way to get out of town for a trip to the river side whether for a date or with the kids. Reservations... More
