Great Fish and A Lot of Extras

The fish came with a wonderful salad full of whatever fresh vegetables and berries were delivered to them that day plus some sweet corn... read more

We arrived and were seated quickly at a nice table with a view of the lake. Looking over the menu and seeing the kids menu was a blanket $9.25 seemed expensive when the normal fish prices arent that much higher. I can't seem to find their kids menu online but I think only one choice was fish otherwise your standard... More

This was our second time eating at the Angry Trout. We loved their Trout Chowder the first time and came back for more. They did not have the Trout chowder available, but they did have their Whitefish Chowder and a ginger cauliflower chicken soup. We tried both of these and were pleasantly surprised by the wonderful flavor of the ginger... More

Memorable food and great service. We had both soups, fried eggplant, smoked fish, herring caviar, and coffee. Will surely return.

The Angry Trout has become a go to place when we visit Grand Marais. Great location right on the water front. The food is the best, and the staff is polite but not overly attentive.

The Angry Trout was recommended by friends who visit the North Shore regularly. Unfortunately our experience was not what we expected. It does have a beautiful setting right on the water. It was a Friday night and we waited about 45 minutes to get in since we did not have reservations. We took first available table and were seated inside.... More

What a wonderful meal! Grilled whitefish, bed of perfectly cooked and seasoned, and perhaps the best straight-from-the-garden salad I've ever eaten - complete with small ear of sweet corn. Blue cheese dressing best ever. Summer-ripe tomato. What more? My birthday - and a slice of coconut cake, topped with a glowing candle, filled with tangy lemon curd and just a... More

I recently visited Grand Marais, and the Angry Trout was highly recommended. Everything was wonderfully prepared, and I especially enjoyed that all the food was fresh. I had the grilled whitefish with an amazing salad (tomato/basil dressing was the best I've ever had), and tasty wild rice. For desert, I had one of the best carrot cakes ever. But...be prepared...

Lot of people recommended the Angry Trout to us. While our food was good, it was not the best meal we had that week. For the price the food was good but not great. If this restaurant was not right on the water it would truly be average at best. We went for lunch on a beautiful day and sat... More
