Wife and I both had the fish and chips which during this time of the year included Lake Superior Whitefish served with waffle fries. Gotta be honest, found the fish to be sort of bland. We asked the waitress for some lemon and she told...More

Then Angry Trout is the one restaurant I never miss when I visit Grand Marais. I love the salad with fresh caught fish. The fish is perfectly grilled, with a bit of oil and tarragon, and served with salad heaped with the freshest crisp greens...More
