“Amazing fish sandwich and delightful location.”
Reviewed 17 June 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!

“Best meal ever”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

Took my Mom there for her birthday. Our server Nicole made the evening awesome. The food was outstanding. Mom had rainbow trout and I had the Boursin Beef Filets. Incredible. The atmosphere is casual but the food is upscale. If you visit TC...this is the place. oh and the view doesn't suck. Happy hour here couldn't be better!

“Great food, great view”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

Delicious food with an awesome view of Traverse City across the bay. I had the special of pan seared arctic char with asparagus and it was tremendous!
Many seafood items as well as beef on the menu. Large patio outside to wait if the restaurant is busy. I highly recommend Apache Trout Grill.

“Lovely view good food”
Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

Had great meal, petite filet very tender and tasty. Walleye prepared perfectly with fresh asparagus and two lovely fresh salads and hot chewy bread with homemade pesto and local flavored oils, delicious and included (no extra charge) unlike another new restaurant in town that charges $8 for plain slices of Italian bread cold sit no butter or olive oil. Great view.

“Light dinner”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

I am rating our night as very good and not excellent only because we ordered light, simple dishes. We started with fried clams as an appetizer. The clams were good, the cocktail sauce could use a little zing. We both had salads, one with Ahi tuna. The tuna was greats. The other salad included pecan-crusted chicken. Both salads were just what we wanted, a light dinner. I would definitely visit again to explore the full menu options.
