Nice cozy restaurant with harbor views. Good is excellent, it tasted as delicious as it looks. The whitefish fillet was cooked to perfection on a bed of wild rice. The salad was good and I appreciated the home made salad dressing.

Angry Trout is a classic and iconic restaurant in Grand Marais. There will be a long wait. It's worth it. Everything is made locally including the chairs,napkins and menus. Try the fresh lake trout dinner. Yum yum!
