I thought I completed this before. Sorry. What I usually get here are the fresh mussels, which I cook up where I'm lodging, usually at Feathernest Inn, which is up the street just one block. I can't comment on the other foods here since it's been a number of years since I had anything else. My only regret is that... More

Food was good. However, the menu states that the fish is the "fresh catch of the day." Not so sure about that. The fish on my sandwich looked as though it came from a box. It was in a shape (rectangle), whereas I'm guessing if it was "fresh" it would not be so perfectly shaped. Again, food was good and... More

We have stopped in every time we are in Grand Marais to get some smoked to go. They know how to smoke fish just fight and have some great Chowder. They also have some nice Cheese and deserts.

We were excited to find the Fish Market on our last day of the trip. We had the Walleye baskets and it was great! Next time we want to remember to get some smoked fish to go.

The dockside is what you want in a fish house,with fresh fish on the menu right out of the lake you are looking at while dining. Extremely friendly staff and the best fried herring you can find any where. The walleye cheek chowder is to die for, thick and loaded with cheeks and potatoes Their fries are lightly battered golden... More

I just stopped in to get some smoked to go. We go some king salmon, coho salmon, and trout. They really know how to smoke and flavor the fish just fight. The salmon was flavorful and still moist. Just great. The trout is awesome! Super flavorful. To go smoked fish with crackers and cheese on the shore cannot be beat.

This place gets great reviews and the locals also rave about it. The walleye fish and chips was one of the best I've had, and they also offer smoked fish and cheeses. Seems like there's a good mixture of locals and out of town folks that come in. No complaints - I highly recommend stopping here.

This is a frequent favorite for a quick lunch or dinner. Very casual. Place your order at the counter and they will deliever it to the table, so the service is quick and efficient. There's seating outside if the weather cooperates. The chairs aren't very comfortable, but they don't have a lot of space for better chairs. You could order... More

This is just a really nice place to eat. Prices are reasonable and the food is excellent. Fish Market has both inside and outside eating areas. I had the Walleye/Pickerel basket and it was excellent. Staff were friendly and helpful. Try this place out when you are in Grand Marais.
