The food here was very very good. But make sure to have plenty of time when making a stop because your delicious meal takes a bit more than usual.

While the food, service and atmosphere are great - the price is a bit high. I appreciate the use of local and organically produced foods and beverages. If you eat nothing else you must have their salad. It is amazing! It is my favorite part of my visit beyond the views.

I've been traveling to the Lake Superior North Shore for the better part of 15 years. Very early on in my travels, I was exposed to Angry Trout Cafe and simply fell in love with it. Every year that I have traveled to the Superior North Shore, I've made a point to visit this establishment. My wife is now also... More

The Angry Trout has been a consistently great restaurant since I started going there 10 years ago, and this time was no different. We were there right at the end of the season before they close the end of October. My wife had the smoked trout fettuccine and I had the grilled fish of the day dinner (herring). Both were... More

Excellent place to get local fish prepared perfectly. Our server was attentive and friendly. Really couldn't have asked for more. Actually, I could have asked for less...next time I'll probably order a lunch portion as I was really, really stuffed (and I certainly couldn't leave any food behind!).

My wife and I had grilled salmon and fried fresh lake herring, respectively, which were served with wild rice and a delicious green salad. Portions were very generous. We've had dinner here at least once on every visit to Grand Marais since the 1990's, and the food has always been outstanding. I appreciate that we can come as we are... More

Had lunch on our anniversary get-away weekend. Food is delicious, service us great and wonderful atmosphere and views of Lake Superior. Would have given 5 stats but I thought it was a bit pricey. Go, you'll enjoy!

This was our second visit in 2 years & we can say for definite that we will stop again on our next North Shore visit. Love the atmosphere & our server was great. Attentive to our needs but did not hover. The smoked caviar appetizer was amazing. My husband had the fresh herring & I had the smoked trout pasta-... More

My husband and i stopped for lunch while we were going through grand marais and ended up spending almost $100 which we would not have minded if the food would have been any good. My husbands hamburger came out on a small dinner roll and was unseasoned and although it wasn't dry the texture was a bit strange. I asked... More
