Relaxing, fun evening at the Apache Trout Grill. You can expect to wait at least an hour for a table that is ok. Grab a glass of wine and enjoy a seat along the waterside watching the boats on Grand Traverse Bay. Nice local wine list with daily specials. The white fish is outstanding.

Been a few years since I have ate here but if anything has changed its only gotten better. Added a outdoor tiki bar and patio seating. Higher priced entrees but well worth the money. Hard liquor and theirs wines are a little overpriced.

I had the grilled salmon salad. The salmon was grilled perfectly and the service was excellent. Appache Trout Grille offers a wonderful view of Grand Traverse Bay. It was a cool day so we ate indoors but they offer outdoor dining on the water.

Nice view great food pecan whitefish with the house fries are to die for. Enough to share and a tad pricey but at least it is fresh. Service was ok. The outside is getting an add on to structure and parking is tight.
