We went to the Hungry Trout for dinner but found out the dining room was closed but the same menu was available in the Pub downstairs. We were disappointed as we had chosen the restaurant for our 'nice dinner out' on our family holiday. The food was great but the server lacked personality. We tried to make small talk but asking for suggestions, etc to no avail. When we asked what was good, we got "the burgers".

Great service, great food and great wine. We go here when visiting. Warm, welcoming, never a complete zoo like the town of Lake Placid and the food and service are better than in Lake Placid.

We had heard that the restaurant was a bit pricey and the Pub downstairs would be a more reasonable option. This was definitely what we found. Our server was friendly and efficient and the atmosphere cozy. Our food was served promptly and was delicious. We will eat here again and may even try the main restaurant.

A friend recommended Hungry Trout as his family's favorite spot in the Whiteface Mountain area. My wife and I and another couple tried a couple times (it is closed Monday and Tuesday) to dine and found the third time to be the charm...and charming it is. Overlooking the river - lighted at night - the restaurant gives you the choice of a river view or sitting near the fireplace.

We all had variations of trout - all the dishes the fish was butterflied. All were tasty. I had an Italian Sausage soup with was perfect on a cold night. Our friend tried the smoked trout appetizer. Smoked on site - it was also very good. Limited but good wine list.
