Slow service great food

We went on a Wednesday night. I am assuming everyone's cookouts were rained out. The restaurant was packed we waited 20 mins for a table and an hour for food. The waitstaff didn't really apologize for the wait and don't bring us silverware or refills but the food was fantastic. I would like to... read more

We ate here while staying at the Hungry Trout Resort. The trout dinner was delicious and the view of the river and mountains from the huge dining room window was spectacular.

We went to the Hungry Trout with our friends who were visiting and their kids, ages 11 and 14. We were pleasantly surprised by how good the food was! Our friends said they would go back and so will we. The waitress was friendly and attentive. The view was really pretty. All in all, a great place to dine.

Delicious dinner w/ magnificent views of Whiteface and the AuSable River. We each had trout - fresh and delightful. The wild mushroom & brie bisque is to die for!! Delicious cherry pie topped it all off.

The pan fried rainbow trout was outstanding. Liked it so much we went back a second time. The view looking at the river is very relaxing, however the second night they put us in a room with two large parties with noisy kids and adults. It would help if they tried to seat couples away from large groups.

We have eaten here before and really rated it last time so we returned again. Unfortunately, our recent experience was poor. For the price you pay I expected quality food. Appetizers was seafood trio. Consisted of one scallop, two shrimp and a sad looks lobster tail. Entree was duck and this was way too dry. I probably wouldn't have noticed... More

Outstanding food - especially fish dishes - and true Adirondack hospitality. Never rushed - always welcomed.

We worked our way through the appetizer menu and it was fantastic! Great food and service. I personally rounded out the night with a Hungry Trout coffee. One word: amazing!

Stopped in the night before to let them know we would be coming for dinner with 18 people . The night we came the bartender met us who was extremely rude and said he couldn't serve 18 people . We couldn't even get crackers for our bowls of New England clam chowder. $23.00 for a picture of Labatts blue light... More
