I have been coming to the Adirondacks for over thirty years and never once stopped in the Hungry Trout. I've driven past it scores of times, ridden my bike past it dozens of times, and even took the school bus past it many times on...More

Great views of the mountains and river. Trout was very good. Everyone enjoyed their food and the lodge type atmosphere. Only downside was the dessert. They only had vanilla ice cream and the "seasonal" pumpkin pie was not up to par.

This is by far the best restaurant in and around Lake Placid! It’s about a 10-15min drive outside the town but so worth it. From the different selections of trout to the quail appetizer and duck entree, we’ve never had a below than superb meal....More

I’ve rated this restaurant before and I’ll say it again. They are why we come to Wilmington NY. They have the best trout any way you want it made.

Four of us traveled from Lake Placid for dinner here. Beautifully situated on the Ausable River, the facility has a lodge-like atmosphere. Service was excellent. Food was very good, but not excellent. Kudos, though, to the chef. Every single thing on our plates was perfectly...More

We sat on the deck in the back which has is right along the river. Our waitress was Tori, and she was great in her dining and drinking suggestions. Our food was delicious. We would recommend the Hungry Trout.
