I love the ambiance of this restaurant, food is quite pricey but it's good. But the wait is so long we waited for almost two hours for our table but it's okay we enjoyed the view and the live band at that time.

This is one of the best places to eat in Traverse City. They offer an extensive wine list and the service is fantastic.

Very scenic, we arrived early (4:30) hoping to get table close to windows to enjoy the lake, no luck! Both our entrees were excellent as was our waitress.

A really nice restaurant that was gracious enough to cook our freshly caught fish (salmon and lake trout) from the Big Kahuna Charter we did earlier. The dinner was outstanding! Although a long wait it was well worth it! I recommend it to anyone visiting Traverse City who wants an excellent dinner with a great view of the West Bay.

My girlfriend and I went to Apache Trout Grill for dinner on our last night in TC. Unfortunately we did not get a parking spot in the main lot, but there is lots of parking directly across the street. I let her out at the door so we could get out name on the waiting list as the wait was... More

We went around 5PM and had a 25 minute wait. An hour later, and the wait was 2 hours. They have an awesome tiki bar outside to enjoy while you wait with comfy chairs and a beautiful view. They also had an indoor waiting area if anyone got too hot. The food and service was excellent, even on a crowded... More

I came here about 4 years ago and remembered the brunch being the best I've ever had. Back up here for vacation to take my lady friend to the Sunday Brunch I've raved about. Was ~$25 a person. Selection was O-K. Your average breakfast items, scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon (solid bacon). The best item in the brunch BY-FAR is the... More

The wait for a table is a constant. Because this is one of the few waterfront eateries in Traverse City, it can get very crowded. Only drinks are served at the outdoor tables, so if you have to wait, enjoy the scenery. Regatta night at the yacht club next door is Wednesday, and provides colorful action on the Bay. We... More

Apache Trout is a favorite spot for lunch, dinner, or cocktails by the water. It is worth the wait, sit back and enjoy the view while waiting. Ribs and fish are my favorites.
