A excellent family restaurant with fresh fish. I ordered the fish and chips and they were excellent. Great view on the water of Lake Superior.

The preparation of fresh fish is the best! Salads have the freshest of ingredients! Salad dressings are excellent. Chowder soup is to die for! Beautiful setting on the harbor. This is a place like none other!

Went here with a family group of 10 people. Service and food were very good. Really nice salads with lots of little extras in them. I had a fresh fish one and wish I had another one right now!!

call ahead and get on the list. The staff is very good. You can wait outside and they will bring you a drink. They serve fresh fish from the lake and many local and organic foods. Great view of the lake. You can sit outside by lake.

The whole family ended up ordering the fish and chips....Yum. We did wait a little over an hour to get in...however, the kids skipped rocks into Lake Superior and watched an otter swim by while we waited. Not a bad wait if you have to wait an hour. Apparently, the cooks take their break and jump into the Lake for... More

Informal place right on the water with friendly service and good food. Small menu but always fresh fish selections. We ate outside on the dock and enjoyed it.

This is the place to go after eating trail food for days on end. The Lake Superior fish is excellent. Presentation is great. Portions are very large. Service is friendly. Although the beer selection is small, the porter is excellent. It's well worth the wait for a seat, outdoors or in. Bring a jacket if you plan to sit outdoors.... More

Lovely location on north shore of Lake Superior. Food and service are earnest without much imagination. Smoked fish and cheese appetizer featured good local fish but tthe cheese was pedestrian grocery store fare. Main courses featured fresh fish with minimal preparation. Salads were fresh and ample. Overall, lovely location and good quality food.

We love dining at the Angry Trout. The service is fast and friendly. The views from the dining room are wonderful as it is right on the water. You can dine indoors or out on the deck. Our most favorite menu item is the Whitefish. It is so delicious and fresh. Their salads are beautiful. The Angry Trout uses locally... More
