Great Food - Great View

If you want a fantastic meal in Grand Marais, this is the place to go. Super fish and a great view. A favorite place for a romantic meal or even a more casual lunch.

It was an average restaurant, with ok food. The best parts of the restaurant are the views, and interesting name. It is a touristy restaurant. Would not recommend going if you are looking for fine dining.

We choice this place for the view and because we could sit right on the water. But loved the locally sourced food and decor. The food was good and service was wonderful.

Love the eco-conscious mission, lots of fresh healthy food. Great salads and fish dishes. Deck if weather is good. Try the fish chowder or anything from the lake.

The food is incredibly good. Just looking over the menu reminds me - of their soups, salads, chicken or fish sandwiches. They have a deep commitment to local and area providers of food - whether it's fish, chicken or beef. They really belief in their mission which is clear and strong. Did I mention that the food is REALLY good.... More

We make a trip to Grand Marais several times during the year. Whenever the Angry Trout is open, we make sure to have a meal there. We love the view, the natural food and table decorations--and the wine! We love it there!!

We visited this quaint, iconic eatery on a busy autumn weekend day, and though it was well past the "normal" lunch hour, the wait time was 20-30 minutes. We were sat and given a wonderful table with a view facing Lake Superior (worth the wait)! The food was remarkably well prepared and presented. The staff was upbeat, if not a... More

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.
