“Best Dinners on the Shore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014

They have wonderful food, service and the location is great. You are dining right on the water, a wall of windows and a great deck makes the location perfect. The food is what you might find in Minneapolis but with a North Shore twist!

“Grand Marais' favorite restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

The Trout is a great place for both enjoying the scene near the harbor and for great food. It's pleasant interior space, friendly staff, and good food make for a great night out in GM. The menu has a nice price range, which also makes it one of the few restaurants in GM that you can have a good meal and not spend a fortune. There are couple of options on the menu for vegetarians.

“Our best loved restaurant in Grand Marais!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013 via mobile

We have loved the Angry Trout for as long as they've been open. The food is local, fresh and often organic. Typically, the staff is very knowledgable (although some are really surly, which is kind of a bummer but I just order an extra glass of wine and smile smugly to myself because hey, it's my vacation). The majority of the decor is created by local artisans and really showcases the north shore (check out the restrooms!!). And honestly, there is nothing better than sitting on the dock deck on a warm summer afternoon and watching the lake.

“Fresh and pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

We went on a Saturday night at the end of the season. We were seated right away. Service is quick and friendly. The crowd is casual: jeans and fleece seemed the norm. The fresh grilled fish was trout, which was perfectly cooked but bland as bland can be. Could only be worse if the same preparation was used for whitefish. My wife had the prawns which were generous in number but also unseasoned. The salad was fresh, interesting and well presented. It was served with a choice of wild rice or fettuccini, and we had the latter, which was overcooked and tasteless. Rather pricey for a fairly basic meal.

“Angry Trout best presentation!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

The presentation of our entre's at the Angry Trout was as good as the meals themselves.
I was impressed by the unique way our meal was delivered. Trust me the taste matched that. My wife had the catch of the day and I had a beef entre. Well worth the price.
