“Great place for lunch on the water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Can here for lunch with my wife and cousin for lunch. It was a recommendation we got from one of the locals. We got a great seat over looking to bay. We ordered the White fish sandwich, salmon salad and the BBQ chicken pizza, all of which were outstanding! The service was great and the decor was exactly what w, as out of towers, were looking for. The place got really busy so we are not the only ones to recognize how great this place is. My one question... Why name this wonderful restaurant "Apache Trout Grill?" there were plenty on Native American Tribes in the area.. none of which were Apache. Outside of this odd name choice, this is a great place for lunch.

“Great views, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

Fresh fish was very good and priced well. Drinks were overpriced. You had a choice of indoor or outdoor dining. View was fab. Right on Traverse Bay with sweeping views of beaches.

Flavors abound, atmosphere is incredible, views are spectacular, service is excellent! We would drive up again (2 1/2 hrs) just to go to dinner. Don't miss this if you're ever in Traverse City!!!

“My favorite place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

This place is one of our absolute favorites--have never had a bad meal here. I particularly love their Cobb salad for lunches and their prime rib amazing--my husband loves their bbq ribs. They have a wonderful atmosphere and love their outside area for cocktails in the summer to appreciate the views and the beautiful bay. Enjoy - as it doesn't get any better than this. We are local and the locals know--trust me it won't disappoint!

“Amazing fish sandwich and delightful location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

After the drive up north, we stopped in for lunch and had the single best item I ate the whole trip! It was a fish sandwich, possible grilled trout or whitefish. Loved the setting, right on the lake. Casual and summery and laid back decor. Definitely a place I will visit again!
