My son and I took my fiance to Laughing Trout to celebrate his birthday. It was our first time at the restaurant since ownership and venue changed some time ago. The remodeling of the space is beautiful, comfortable, and inviting. A complete transformation has taken place. So, great ambience. The reason we waited so long, and for a special occasion... More

We were staying at the AmericInn in Monroe (for the third time) and decided to try the restaurant just across the parking lot. They had a reunion coming in the same night so we had early reservations. A delightful surprise! The service was wonderful, the food excellent, and even though they were going to be swamped later we did Not... More

We had a lovely meal here. I had steak kabobs and my husband had the macaroni and cheese. We both enjoyed our meal. We were able to top it off with a local craft beer.

Just a short walk from our motel and we found ourselves at a great choice for dining in Monroe. When we arrived the lunch menu was being served. Good selection, good prices and friendly service. Will consider dining there again.

My husband and I arrived at 7pm on a Saturday evening and could see by the parking lot that they were busy and anticipated a wait time since we didn't have reservations. We were happy to hear the wait time was only 25-30 minutes and asked to sit at the bar for a drink while we waited. At the bar,... More

We visited this restaurant based on its good Trip Advisor ratings and were not disappointed. Three of us shared a huge sandwich, 2 soups and cheese curds. We had plenty to eat and lots of variety. The loaded potato soup was full of nice chunks of potato and green onion with plenty of cheese and bacon. I really enjoyed the... More

A friend and I decided to try a new restaurant in Monroe. Laughing Trout interested us. I had a huge Reuben sandwich. LOTS of meat, sauerkraut etc. I brought half the sandwich home. Also home-made fries and chips. Those were amazing. My friend had a hamburger that she also brought half home for her dinner. Will definitely go back and... More

Being from New England I tried the seafood pasta. It was an over reach. Not sure what the lobster was but it wasn't good. Bar was nice and service was good. I will try something a little simpler next time like steak or sandwich.

It felt like a supper club with the bar on one side of the building and the restaurant on the other. The five cheese mac & cheese was fabulous! Ditto on the fish and chips! Our waitress was very helpful in making menu and drink choices.
