It may be the Angry Trout Cafe - but we definitely experienced Gastric Gladness!! My second visit there, but my husband's first - we were delighted by the tasty lunch we had and the great service. Both of us enjoyed a fish meal (fresh caught from the waters of Lake Superior). I had fish and chips (the BEST I have... More

Don't pass this one by! I can't believe I've been up here so many times without having seen or tried this lovely gem. Foodies heaven on a gorgeous bay in Grand Marais. The atmosphere is scrumptious for middle America, small town. Sitting on the deck you'd think you were in Cape Cod. My sister and I truly enjoyed our experience.... More

The Angry Trout is always one of my favorites visiting Grand Marais. It's fun to see what their fresh seafood is and try one variety fried as an appetizer and another grilled for dinner. I also appreciate having salad served on the same plate as the fish and starch - makes a big, colorful and very appealing plate. Fantastic house-made... More

This restaurant was recommended by the front desk person at the hotel, so we decided to give it a try. The food was outstanding! The fish is locally caught, and very fresh. You'll also have an opportunity to sample some local wild rice, which is delicious. The atmosphere was great, and most seating has an amazing view of the lake.... More

Our first time eating at this restaurant and we were very happy. Its a cool venue with some great views and a friendly staff of young hipsters. They have outdoor seating, but the weather was chilly on our visit so we sat inside. The food was delicious and they served large portions. The menu was diverse and you could tell... More

First tip: They don't take reservations, but if you call 15 minutes before you show up, they'll add your name to the wait list. We had a party of six and only waited ten minutes or so on a beautiful summer evening, watching the small children of another guest toss pebbles into the water. People were seated both inside and...

Great food right on the harbor. Locally caught fish plus taste and healthy sides. It is not the only good restaurant in town, but try this first as a bench mark for the rest of your dinning adventures while in town.

We go here every time we come to the north shore. The food is fantastic. Full disclosure I always get the herring fish and chips, it's too good to even think about trying anything else. The plates I see pass by and the smiles on other customers faces make me think everything else is just as good. If the weathers... More

Found another great place right on the water overlooking a beautiful harbor-and they have great food! Dined on white fish and smoked fish - fresh caught. Tasty!! Also tasted fish sandwich and it was good. To top off the meal we has blueberry pie-awesome! Service was excellent and the view is good from just about every seat-indoor or out. Will... More

Been many times and worth the trip, and wait to get in, each time. Great local fresh fish, right on Grand Marais harbor. All fresh fish of the day options are excellent, all come with sides and a great salad. Aside from fresh fish, the smoked trout fettucini is my favorite item, smoked fish comes from a shop up the...
