Trebeaché restaurant brings a big easy feel to Blue Mountain Beach with the same great food and excellent wine list you would expect from their sister restaurants, Stinky’s Fish Camp in nearby Dune Allen and Trenasse in New Orleans.  Trebeaché takes both of those concepts - one super casual, one upscale - and blends them seamlessly into a relaxed but elegant setting.  By the way, Stinky's Fish Camp's new locations are now open in Auburn, Alabama and Baton Rouge, Lousiana.

Trebeaché is located at Redfish Village and is open daily for happy hour and dinner, and on Sundays for brunch. Stay tuned to Facebook for info on live music and events.
