We were with a large group during the "off season." The bartender saw us come in and looked nervous even though we had reservations. The outdoor sitting area is very nice. Our server was pretty decent being able to cater to everyone's needs. The food although cooked properly lacked flavor.

great selection of great food and an entertaining (Jim) bartender. We had dinner in the restaurant one night (nicely lighted outside) and at the Bar the next two nights.

food was great, mushroom bisque, Italian sausage soup, mushroom stuffed ravioli didn't like the smoked trout appetizer- smoky flavor tasted artificial Liked the interior décor with lots of sparkling lights, sat by the large windows overlooking the back lawn that had lights high lighting the boulders and pretty brook . very romantic place for dinner

We were enjoying a beautiful Adirondack weekend and thought we would treat ourselves to a fine dining experience. Not at The Hungry Trout! The chef clearly does not understand that all food leaving the kitchen needs to be properly seasoned. Unless specified by the customer it should have at least salt and pepper for seasoning. My daughter ordered 12oz strip.... More

While this restaurant is known for the magnificent scenic view and fabulous trout dishes, they also offer delicious food. We had the chicken marsala and pasta dish which was yummie. Great dessert as well

This is a real gem in the Lake Placid/Mirror Lake area. The food is outstanding, the views of the brook are amazing and the service is terrific. It's a 15 minute ride from Mirror Lake and the ride itself is scenic. Our waitress was so nice and informative. But the fresh Trout was simply scrumptious. We also had a pasta... More

My wife and I recently ate at The Hungry Trout Restaurant. We had not been back for approximately 15 years and were anxious to see if it was as good as we remembered. Well, it surpassed our highest expectations for quality of food, service and setting. I started with the bisque of mushrooms and sherry which was excellent followed by... More

We stopped in originally looking for some bar food, but ended up in the main dining room, which is so beautifully appointed, i felt a bit underdressed in apres ski gear. The staff seemed a little off-put by the fact that we had kids in tow, but the demeanor changed quickly once they realised that my kids come to eat,... More
