We make the 4 1/2 hour drive from the Twin Cities often just for the Chowder. Always great service, and always worth the wait.The waiter with the Nintendo belt buckle is the best in the business!

This restaurant is everything that other restaurants should be. Choose from a simple beer selection while you wait (totally worth any wait you endure). The fish fry is incredible, and so so filling. All of the sides are amazing so you can't go wrong there, and your dish also comes with an incredible salad. The tartar sauce is something you'll... More

This is my favorite restaurant of all time and home of my favorite meal in the state of Minnesota. The fish chowder is very tasty and paired with their amazing salad makes a hearty lunch or dinner. The grilled whitefish dinner is a must and they serve it all day. I like mine with the spinach fettuccini noodles, but wild... More

Yummy salad and a great grilled whitefish entrée, my hubby had the grilled lake trout, last one of the night. Terrific atmosphere and good food, at least for the adults. Kids had the noodles, and we had mixed reviews, as one loved it, and the other didn't much care for it. All in all, I recommend highly, especially for eco-minded... More

The Angry Trout Cafe has some really good food. Most times I have been here there is a line of people waiting for a table. The wait is worth it. Enjoy!

I ordered a grilled whitefish sandwich. While the fish was fantastic, there was only half as much fish as I would expect. Just a sliver of fish hidden in an excellent bun. Too bad. I also felt the $2.25 adder subbing the fries for the chips was a bit much. Tarter sauce was excellent (only used a bit as the... More
