“Well done”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

In all of the dozens of times that I've been to Grand Marais, I can't believe that this was my first trip to the Angry Trout. I was in town for a photo shoot so I asked about getting my meal to go, and it was ready in ten minutes and was fantastic. This will be a new tradition from now on. They have a great, outdoor seating area, and lots of indoor spots, but they can be (and, are) busy in the summers, so plan ahead.

“Amazing Great Food with Wonderful Hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

We had a great meal at The Angry Trout. We had Lake Superior White Fish and Smoked Trout - both served with fresh asparagus, wild rice and a huge salad with house made salad dressing. The prices are very reasonable for the quality and quantity you receive. The service was very warm, with the owner making friendly rounds with all of the guests.

The interior is very interesting with woodworking done by a local couple. The design is beautiful and each table is made from a different type of wood. The weather was very chilly the night we were there, so we at inside, but the view of the harbor was very beautiful throughout the restaurant.

“Huge salads and great views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

We travelled up to Grand Marais from Duluth on a beautiful sunny June day and had a late lunch on the deck overlooking Lake Superior. Portions are huge, we had lake superior smoked trout salad and wild rice salads, the prices are very reasonable and the staff extremely welcoming and friendly. We want to go back to this part of America and visit again.

“Great veggie food as well!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

Nice small restaurant feel. Kind of hidden along Hwy 61 and you need to look for it. Not too crowded but great food. Great salad and great choices for dressings.
