Maple chipotle wings were incredible, and the rest of the food was good. The best part though was the beautiful setting overlooking the Ausable

The view...is stunning! And the trout was incredible. We especially loved the Grand Marnier Trout. DELICIOUS! I would highly recommend for a family dinner or a nice date night if you are in the area! Hang out by the waterfall outside after dinner with some drinks. It was so peaceful and relaxing!

Attended a birthday celebration. Beautiful location and gorgeous restaurant. Trout was good - sides were ok. Chicken pasta meal ok. Sampler (lamb, trout and something else) was pronounced excellent by one and pretty good by another. Decent portions, if you can eat the sides. Bread wasn't good and no gluten-free bread options. Shocker was the bill, for the six of... More

I ordered the chicken egg rolls which were phenomenal and moist and just so flavorful, the gouda and mushroom bisque which was amazing! In fact I think I said young after every wonderful spoonful, and the chicken and shrimp tagliatelle which was good. I was afraid that with all of the game on their menu I wouldn't be able to...

Great food selection with a focus on trout dishes, Wine selection is impressive ans staff is professional and old school manners abound. Easy to loose track of time watching the sunset in the evening with the view overlooking the Ausable river in the Adirondack mountains.

The Cowboy Steak Is excellent! Cooked perfectly to order. Pub Fries were the best I've ever had. Try the Apple Crisp for dessert; you will love it. Recommend highly recommended if you are anywhere near Lake Placid or Whiteface b

When we have guests coming up to Lake Placid, we always make a reservation at the Hungry Trout. Always dependable service and food, and our guests always give rave reviews. Meals are a bit pricey, but worth it. Trout and fish dishes are excellent, although strange as it sounds, I always order the duck - the best ever!

Food needs upgrading and carpet needs replacing. There is a bar on the lower level which seemed very popular and which I did not visit. I ordered trout which was touted as their specialty, yet it did not taste fresh. Ho-hum preparations that seemed "dated". Great views of the Ausable River and White Face Mountain, which can't be topped. I... More

This was the second time I have enjoyed the delicious food here. The service is friendly and prompt. Food was cooked exactly as we ordered. I have ate at many restaurants in the Lake Placid area and this is the best by far.

This area has few dining options and most were closed on a recent weeknight so we found ourselves here--the only game left in town. The ambiance is vintage Adirondack and as such is well done. The main feature of the restaurant is a wall of windows facing a magnificent mountain view. Sadly, the windows were streaky and steamy and the... More
