Wonderful place, good food.

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... read more

The restaurant faces a Trout Creek and the mountains. It was very nice to be able to sit and watch fly fishermen while eating our meal. Also, it was somewhat foggy and the fog rolled across the tops of the mountains. The food was very good. Trout is their specialty served various ways, but they also have all the usual... More

I stood at the front for about 5 - 8 minutes before anyone greeted me, the place was not busy, so I couldn't understand the wait, once I got my menu, it took awhile again before she took my order. I had the Elk Flank Steak, it was cooked to order, however they put way too much gravy on the... More

The trout was probably the best I've had, and I appreciated that the serving size was appropriate for a meal with a dessert to follow. The menu made me a little sad that I couldn't come back every day for a week and try everything. The service was exceptional, the atmosphere peaceful, and can we talk about the view? Wow.... More

My wife and I have dined here almost every visit to Wilmington. They have the best trout menu going( in my opinion). They must serve more trout than the entire East Coast of USA. The Grand Marnier version is nothing short of superb. We started with appetizers(Roasted Quail for my wife and a seafood trio for me) I chose California... More

We were staying at the hungry trout so it seemed easy to go to their restaurant. I made reservations ahead of time...maybe 2 weeks before our visit and they had limited seating so I would recommend calling ahead. We were seated quickly. The place has a hunting theme and it was clean. Our waitress was very nice. Our dinner was... More

The food here was quite good and the restaurant itself has a great Adirondack styled interior with a beautiful view. We were able to find a deal on restaurant.com before going and it made the price quite reasonable.

My wife and our two boys and another family with their kids went to Hungry Trout on the Friday after New Year's. We had no reservations, yet we were able to get a table right away. My wife had the grilled trout which was awesome, and I had the elk steak which was superb. My older son had the filet... More
