This place does everything right. From the view hanging out over the water in the harbor to the bright attractive environment. They have many different combinations of fresh fish from herring trout salmon whitefish and more. They prepared in a variety of different ways and offer it as a meal or as a sandwich. Their salads are absolutely my favorite... More

We are never disappointed with lunch or supper here. We appreciate that you can order from the lunch menu all day. We always order the grilled fish of the day salad for either meal. It comes with bread if you ask. The view of Lake Superior is the best, and you can eat outdoors on their deck if you wish.... More

There are tons of restaurants I love. Fancy restaurants with cocktails crafted by mixologists, sushi bars with beautiful rolls, and what have you. But whenever I think of my absolute favorite place, it's here. Granted, they're really lucky with their location, but the service and food is perfect, as well. The menu is small, but it's all fresh food. I... More

The preparation of each dish is special often using local fruits and vegetables. The seasoning of fresh herring, whitefish and trout is outstanding. The setting right on the water is spectacular. We have dined here several times for 20+ years. Normally service is friendly but we dock one star for a surly server who could not be bothered to tell... More

A delightful restaurant practically overhanging Lake Superior. Very good seafood fresh from the lake. The fish market and marina is right next door. Minimal on site parking. Most park on the side of the highway. When busy you may have a short walk.

We always make a visit to Angry Trout when we visit Grand Marais in the Fall. Great food and the best maple mustard dressing in the world.

Recommended and room to park opposite, although you may have to park further away on busy days. Food was good - local fish fillets - battered not breadcrumbed. Fries were nearer game chips. Tea was Earl Grey - a popular choice in this part of USA. Large locally crafted teapot. Somewhat pricey.

My all time favorite place to eat~ever. The fish is always the best whether it's salmon, whitefish, herring or whichever! The salads and chowder are my favorites. Beautiful location and in my favorite town.

Had a late lunch at the angry trout. I had the salmon & it was amazing. The best I had ever had. My husband had the fish & chips & was disappointed with it. The fish looked more like walleye fingers & got very little fish & lots of fries.

Walked in and ignored by front desk staff for a few minutes. No hi, welcome or anything making you think they want your business. Menu doesn't seemed to have changed in over ten years. Chicken was fine. Also had fried fish special. Asked for lemons told don't have. Waitress never came back to see if we needed anything or if... More
