Dear friends took my husband and I there tonight, our first time back there in years. The atmosphere was great, food was even better! The resturant gets an A+ from all of us! We will definitely return, it's worth the drive to TC to enjoy a meal at this place! ☺️☺️☺️

Our hotel host recommended the Apache Trout Grill for dinner and it did not disappoint. We were there with two couples and had a variety of salads and entrée's. All were well prepared a and presented beautifully. The view of the city lights over Traverse Bay was beautiful. We had an enjoyable evening with great food and great service.

We were very impressed with our first visit to Apache Trout Grill last year and could easily agree with the many positive reviews and high recommendations. So when we were considering which restaurant to take friends for a special dinner, it was our top pick. Unfortunately, our guests entrees were the exception. A steak requested medium arrived rare and had... More

This has been on our "to do" list for the past several trips to TC, my only disappointment is that we didn't make a greater effort to go there sooner. The ambiance was great. The food was amazing. And our server, Kate, could not have been better. Highly recommend!!

A enjoyable log cabin setting with canoe's hung from ceiling and a large fireplace with views of the bay. The lobster bisque was incredible along with the Whitefish.

Located on West Bay in Traverse City is Apache Trout Grill. From the yummy salads to the fresh seafood you can't go wrong. They aren't cheap but the food is really good.

Had birthday lunch here after swimming at the Y and the whitefish sandwich was delicious. Usually come for dinner and they are always super busy. But this was the day after Christmas (my birthday, ugh) and we had our choice of where to sit pretty much. The view of the bay is always wonderful.
