Great food, a little pricy

I enjoyed our supper here. Between us we had trout, steak and pizza (the kids). We really enjoyed the food and the restaurant decor. It was a bit pricy but good nonetheless.

Don't ever go to the restaurant. We decided to dine at McDougal's. Worst experience EVER in a restaurant. Got there at 7pm with 3 people, order was lost, food wasnt out until 830pm, my dad's chicken was undercooked which had to be cooked more...it never came back by 9pm so we didnt bother waiting any longer so my dad never...

As owner of both R.F. McDOUGALL'S PUB and GRILL and The HUNGRY TROUT RESTAURANT, I'll take full responsibility for this patron's poor experience in our pub. Our annual Ironman competition was in town and the area was overwhelmed with tourists. Thousands of diners looking for places to eat and, as our pub is one of the more popular spots, we... More

Local take: we ate dinner on the new deck. Perfect summer evening with a perfect meal. Great to get off busy Main Street LP and eat in the great outdoors. Go here!!

Stopped here because they advertised fresh trout. The troup was delicious but not locally caught - not a problem. Surprisingly out granddaughters ordered pasta and their marinara sauce was the best my wife and I have ever tasted. It is amazing what you find at the oddest places.

On my first visit to Lake Placid I thought the menu for this restaurant sounded intriguing with several different types of trout as well as nice menu. When we arrived the restaurant was about half full, but it took forever to receive our food. When we did receive our food it was warm, but certainly not hot. The food was... More

My family went to dinner here on the last night of our vacation. The staff was very pleasant, the view of the lake was awesome, the food was delicious.

Arrived for a 6:30 reservation and were greeted and seated right away. Then the wait started, half an hour for drinks, half an hour for soup and salads. It was 8:30 before dinner arrived and we had 2 5 year olds with us. Our waitress was a victim of a understaffed kitchen. The food was good when it arrived but... More

Our meal was great, wonderfyl service and prices, although pricey, were well justified. And we could see a great view of Whiteface and the river from our table. Well done!

We ate here twice during our 6 nights in the Adirondaks. First experience was top notch. Excellent food and attentive service. Second time the service was not as good- never came back to ask us for another round of beverages or ask how the entrees were. Great atmosphere sort of similar to a supper club- cozy and the view out... More
