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

It has been a number of years since we last visited the Hungry Trout, previously one of our very favorite restaurants in the north country. Our whole extended family had enjoyed many a meal at the Trout over many years, then we reluctantly had to give it up. That was because, after the departure of their excellent chef (to run... More

This may be a restaurant that you would drive by or not consider, but don't miss out! The food is incredible! The ambiance is lovely. The wine list is small, but there are a few gems, and the prices are reasonable. We were ready for a break from pub food, and the Hungry Trout was spot on. My only suggestion... More

We live in the area and have been here many times over the years, but we hadn't been to the Hungry Trout recently. What a pleasant surprise to see that it is better than ever. This visit was one of the best dining experiences we've had in a long time. I had the chicken marsala and my husband had the... More

Ate with family. Daughter had a burger that was dry and overdone. For our family of four (two kids), we had two solid dishes, and two poor dishes. I had hoped for a lot more given the prices. The meal cost us $80+, and it was mediocre pub food at best. The Wilderness Inn (just up the road) had better... More

The view of the landscape is beautiful. The food was refined and well prepared. The highlight for me was the freshly baked bread and the trout. I has the venison and bison kabobs, and would skip that if I was to eat here again. The mushroom soup was too creamy for me but otherwise, well prepared. The grilled trout, although... More

The food was great, the service wonderful, and the view peaceful and relaxing. The fish was fresh and tasteful. The hamburger flavorful and cook just the way we ordered it.

With 5-8 dishes per section of the menu, emphasis was on the quality, taste and presentation of the food. Salmon was perfectly cooked and nicely complemented with the seasonal vegetables. Service was good and waitress was knowledgeable about the good and local produce. Nice relaxing atmosphere with amazing views of the mountains and river out of the window. Would highly... More
