Excellent atmosphere with Grand Traverse Bay right out the window. All of our dishes were prepared perfectly.

Fish entree was great, but side dishes over salted and had been sitting somewhere for too long. Menu needs a refresh, could use a few new seafood entrees not named basic grilled fish. Good service, great view.

Apache Trout Grill is the first restaurant my now husband took me to when I first came to Michigan. Whenever we have a special occasion we visit Apache. The food, service and view are the best in Traverse City, I think.

This place is amazing in all areas--service was excellent and the food was fabulous! It was the best whitefish and sweet potatoes we have ever had! We highly recommend it. It is a bit pricey, but definitely worth it, especially if it's for a special occasion. THeir complimentary house pesto and fresh rolls were so tasty as well.

Had to wait 30min for a table in their very comfortable waiting area. Food and service was very good. We were lucky to score a table by the window! Read the key lime pie was not to be missed alas no more space in my tummy! Next time will pass on the apps so will have room for dessert!
