This restaurant was recommended by the bartender in one of the resorts we went. After visiting Whiteface mountain, we decided to have dinner here. I ordered the panko pan seared trout which was very good. My husband had the crispy duck which he also enjoyed. Andrea, our wait staff, was very pleasant. The receptionist was very gracious and welcoming. We... More

On our last night in Wilmington we ate at The Hungry Trout, and it was just okay. I will say that it is way too expensive for what you get. The mushroom soup alone cost me $10, and it was extremely good, but worth $10, no. I also ordered the trout, and it was not very good. From eating the... More

We stopped at the restaurant the other day and had a fantastic meal. The trout was outstanding, both the smoked appetizer and the Grand Marnier main course. My wife had the venison sausage which was fantastic. We couldn’t have been any more satisfied with a meal than this. The chef’s desserts were great. A maple Crème Brule as well as... More

We stopped here at about 4:30 - before they started serving - but Jim the bartender invited us in and set us up with a glass of pinot noir at the bar. We waited for the rest of our group to join us and at 5:00 we ordered dinner. We chose to eat downstairs in the bar, because we were... More

Ive eaten at the Hungry Trout on all of my visits to the area and I have never been underwhelmed. The food is excellent and the staff is friendly and inviting. The Owner himself along with his wife are regularly around to greet the customers. Im a huge fan of the diversity in that you can have a fine dinging... More

There are very few restaurants in Wilmington and the Hungry Trout is a lovely place to have a special dinner, or you can go casual downstairs at the pub. Standards are a selection of trout dishes, hot sausage soup, and their smoked trout appetizer. Ask for a table near the window.

Five friends traveled to Lake Placid for an overnight and decided to stay at the Hungry Trout resort. Having stayed there years ago and enjoying the restaurant, we decided to eat there. It was a Thursday evening and it was snowing and blowing. The restaurant is decorated with fishing and hunting memorabilia and art. There is a beautiful stone fireplace... More

We arrived too late to dine in their restaurant and it was suggested we dine in their downstairs pub where we enjoyed good pub fare, beers, and service. By the way, the restaurant's location is superb on the banks of a branch of the Ausable River which they have lit at night.

Quaint pub downstairs and rustic elegance in upstairs restaurant with beautiful view of Ausable river waterfalls. There is plenty to choose from no matter what you may be craving - from delicious burgers on a brioche bun to Grand Marnier trout cooked to perfection. I must say the homemade potato chips are a must! We have 4 rental properties in... More
