Excellently prepared local fare, organic options, and plenty of gluten free variety. Plus, it's always fun to eat outside over the water. So much to love! A new Grand Marais Favorite.

This place is amazing and charming, offering great view and really cosy atmosphere. They have many different combinations of fresh fish from herring, trout, salmon, whitefish and more, which can be prepared in a variety of different ways (meal or sandwich). Well the salads are absolutely delicious, should i mention that they are also organic and with a selection of... More

The Angry Trout is a five star experience if you like to eat fish. The restaurant overlooks scenic Grand Marais harbor in all its grandeur. The star selection on the menu was the fresh netted Lake Superior Herring. I don't know of any other restaurant that serves fresh herring, especially from the waters you overlook as you eat. It is...

I know the name says Angry Trout and you would think all they serve is Fish... but the Bison Burger is great here. We always stop in here every time we are in Grand Marais and the Burger is our favorite.

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.
