Good pie, good service, easy to get to in a good location downtown. I would recommend if you need a sweet treat in the afternoon.

My family visits Traverse City just about every year. Our last stop on the way out of town is the original Grand Traverse Pie store to buy a couple of pies for us and to buy pies for friends and family who, through us, have...become big fans of GT pie. We have been customers since the store opened. What made a GT pie so wonderful was the generous amount of fruit filling, just like the pictures on their website. No more. I’m sorry to say that GT pie is now no better than the pie I can buy at my local grocery store for a third of the price. The bottom crust was gummy. The crumb topping was soggy. The cherry filling, what there was of it, was basically cherry mush. We also purchased a mountain berry pie and the same complaints apply. Very disappointed.More

My wife and I stopped by for lunch on a shopping trip . We both had the chicken pot pie Combo which included the pie, a salad and a large slice of pie for dessert. The pot pie itself was huge for a single portion.... Two children or seniors with small appetites could easily share one pie and be filled. It was delicious. The crust was amazing. The salad was crisp and fresh. The dessert pie was fresh and tasty. The young ladies behind the counter worked feverishly to keep up with orders, buss tables and sanitize settings. Great service and food. We will be back.More

When one of these stores first opened near me in metro Detroit, I tried it and was unimpressed and didn't return. But I was staying at a cottage near Traverse City and had gotten a free gift card, so I decided to try it again....My visit didn't change my opinion. The staff wasn't very helpful or friendly. My chicken salad sandwich had too much mayo, very little in the way of cherries or grapes. My pie slice was not very flavorful. The whole experience was mediocre.More

We've visited Grand Traverse Pie Co several times over the years and it never disappoints. The prices are very reasonable for the area and the food is excellent. Of course, the pie is great too.

Comfort food at its finest. We loved every tempting morsel of goodness. The flaky crust on the pot pie was incredibly delicious. The Turkey Reuben was so moist and tasty. We also ordered a maple cinnamon roll - but they just sold the last one....Make sure you put your orders in for one of those and savor each bite. It looked so yummy. 😋 Instead we savored the Apple Dumpling. It was very filling and yet fulfilling. You can go wrong at the Grand Traverse Pie company. I just wish they had one in Indiana - or maybe not - as I would easily put on 15 lbs 😁 We did take home 3 pies for our neighbors 😁More

I don't think you need to make a reservation, they will do their best to make room if you have a crowd, they have excellent service and always a great meal or snack.

YES! My Son has Celiac and they do offer small individual pies which are premade at a separate facility. Once they were sold out so we drove to the other location for one to go. They also have gluten free bread!
