This restaurant came highly recommended.... should have went to Red Mesa. Upon walking in we were told it would be a 25 minute wait, which we were fine with, seeing we just drove 3 hrs to get to TC. However, an hour later we were still not seated, even though every family & couple wj o came in after us... More

We have never had a bad meal at Apache Trout Grill. We love taking visitors there because of the view, good food, and good service.

I was entertaining my elderly mother who was visiting and we decided on ordering take out. The order took forever. We took the food and drove just down the road a hair to a nearby park for a mid afternoon picnic lunch. My burger, ordered medium rare was a grey, tough, tasteless hockey puck, very well done. My mother's medium... More

When coming in with a large local group, we were told that we would have to wait on the front benches until all of our group arrived. So we weren't able to visit or order hor d'oeuves or drinks while we waited. Food was not consistant for the group, some good , some not. The wait staff was very unfriendly... More

It is located on Grand Traverse Bay so you have a view of the water and the boats sailing or motoring by. It is very close to downtown Traverse City.

Of all the resturants in the Traverse City region we come here the most when we are looking for great fish of steaks. Try the Walley or Whitefish if you want local flavor. Service is good, food is good. Prices are not the least expensive in the area but the food combined with the view is worth a little extra.... More

We have dined at Apache Trout Grill many times and have enjoyed the experience each time. The view is outstanding and the service is always attentive. Make sure you avoid the high demand hours as this restaurant . . . and parking lot . . . fills up quickly. Enjoy!

Celebrated my bff's birthday there Wednesday, great service..thanks Marcel! Food was outstanding...Calamari, hot roll/bread...shrimp linguini, Lake Perch, lobster bisque, shrimp tacos and ribs! Everything was prepared perfect and good serving size. House Chardonnay was yummy too. Great place for a celebration. May be a bit pricey for young families (check menu) but well worth the quality of food and service.

Apache Trout Grill has been on my bucket list for sometime. We were traveling to visit our children this past weekend and decided to stop for dinner before the summer crowds return. What an excellent choice. I enjoyed the white fish dinner with a cherry sauce and my husband had the perch which was also an excellent choice. Very large... More
