Great view. Good food.

Had the catch of the day. It was cooked perfectly. The salad was fabulous with beets, radishes, strawberries, carrots, and home-made dressing. The view of the lake was amazing. The staff was friendly and helpful.

We stopped in to have a glass of wine. The hostess kept telling us how is was going to rain. Big deal we would still like a glass of wine. She seemed like if we were not going to eat then she did not want to serve us. Not impressed, and we saw all the wonderful reviews.

In our estimation, the best restaurant on the North Shore (which we visit 1-2X per year). It invariably has a good fish selection that is very well prepared and comes with great sides such as its specialty wild rice dish. Desserts are excellent as well, as is the wine selection. Service is friendly and prompt; the staff all seem to... More

I always try to stop here right after arriving in Grand Marais. The food, the service, the view, and the great photos I've taken from the deck lure me back time after time.

Fantastic food and a deck right on the harbor made for a wonderful way to sirens the evening. The fresh fish was cooked perfectly, the pasta and salad were delicious and topped with very well crafted house made dressings. The locally made Voyageur Porter complemented the meal well and the location couldn't be beat. A great spot to spend an... More

The salads are amazing. They're huge and have a wide variety of toppings. All of the dressings were homemade and not run of the mill. Most of our group had the salads and I had the fish and chips. Everyone who had the trout salads raved. My fish was white fish and I should have had the trout. The service... More

Ate a late lunch here on Father's Day 2015, and it was the best meal of our trip across the top of Lake Superior, from Sault St. Marie, CA to Duluth, USA. Lots of locally sourced foods, fresh caught fish, homemade salad dressings, soups, and Minnesota beers on tap. My wife had a grilled whitefish sandwich and coleslaw, which she... More

The location is amazing - fabulous view of the harbor and the ambiance is comfortable and charming. That would be enough of reason to go but the food is fabulous too. We almost always order fish because who can resist when you are right by the lake but the vegetables and salads are delicious and fresh. I love that it... More

My husband and I not eaten here in a few years because the restaurant is usually so busy and the wait is too long for us. We were recently in Grand Marais on a Sunday night and were delighted to find The Angry Trout not crazy-busy! We were seated at a table on the lakeside with a great view. The... More
