The Dining Room at the Fryemont is a throwback restaurant. It is an old fashioned place that gives you plenty of everything and lots of choices. You will be served more food than you can ever eat. The service is great too!

Beef, trout, lamb and vegan. Something delicious for everyone! My favorite meal was the pecan crusted trout with a lemon cream sauce. It was excellent! Also a nice selection salad dressings including some home made honey mustard that is wonderful!

The menu is available prior to entering, with the exception of the nightly special. Service is friendly, quick, and efficient. Trout is particularly good. Vegetables are served family style. Each dinner has a salad, soup, and choice of dessert as well.
