Good fish, depending on what the catch of the day is and your preference, accompanied by a nice selection of salad and soup options. The outside dining is very nice weather permitting with nice views of Grand Maria’s and the harbor.

What a great place for lunch. Right on the water with outside seating available. What a view. Staff is very friendly. Had the deep Fried Cod. So delicious! Seagulls can be a pest sometimes. Highly recommend. Can have long waits sometimes!

The cafe is right on the water, with most of the outdoor seating on decks above the water. If you're lucky, you might see the otters who frequent the area. The wine and beer selection is small, but very good.

We tried to sit outside but the metal chairs made it a bit too chilly for our group. We were moved inside without an issue upon request and placed at a table with a great view of the water. Tasty grilled fish sandwiches - large...More

We decided on Angry Trout for a birthday dinner, and were very impressed! The restaurant is right on a small beach, and has a very inviting, romantic ambience. Even though the menu is moderate and the entrees have the same template (salad, wild rice, mini...More
