Great restaurant. Large portions, well designed, well made and well-presented.

All in all this is a surprisingly good restaurant for such a small town and I will definitely be eating there again. Would take others there as well. All in all I was very happy with it and it's hands down the best restaurant in town. Not that there are very many other options but Angry Trout is the best available and I'd actually go some distance in order to eat there.

Has a great view of the lake-- in fact, they have a dock with outdoor seating and tables right over the water where you can look out into the harbor.

Service was very friendly and fast. All in all, excellent and I'll be going there as soon as they open in the spring-- pretty sure they are closed in the winter.

Every time we are in Grand Marais we go here and have never been disappointed. The views are wonderful, food well prepared, service great.

We had both fried and baked Herring, which is a mild fish....but was tasty in their hands. Highly recommend.

We love, love, love Angry Trout. It is one of the highlights to our many trips to Grand Marais. We have never had a bad experience with the food or service.

We enjoyed the Angry Trout a year ago and were eager to return this year. We had an enjoyable lunch outside one day, but our dinner the following day was ruined by the poor service. We knew about the 40 minute wait for a table; that wasn't a problem. What was unforgivable was the way we were rushed to eat our meal and make room for the next party as soon as we were seated. I commented to our unfriendly waitress that we had the feeling (when she tried to clear away plates before we were finished and then brought the check along with desert) that she was in a hurry to get us out. She replied, "Well, that's my job." I relayed this exchange to the hostess on our way out and she jumped to the defense of the waitress, helpfully explaining that they try to turn the tables every 40 - 60 minutes. The managers of this restaurant have become greedy. They would provide a better experience for diners and a less stressful environment for their staff if they took reservations and spaced them at reasonable intervals. We had an equally delicious dining experience and excellent service elsewhere in Grand Marais.

Great lunch, right on the harbor, good beer on tap, friendly/prompt service.

Order the smoked herring and trout appetizer with wild blueberries, cheese, and cranberry horseradish dipping sauce.
