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

I had the ribs. They were rather sugary and dry. My husband had a pasta which was ok he said. Salad was extra. Meal was pricey, service was good. The scenery was beautiful and nicely lit. Perhaps stop in for drink and appetizer?

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
