Fodor's Expert Review Apache Trout Grill

$$$$ Traverse City American

Experience authentic northern Michigan cuisine at this popular spot, named for a fish rescued from the endangered species list. Stuffed fish and wood carvings adorn the walls, lamps are carved in the shape of bears and fishing poles, and there's a great view of the water. On the menu are fresh-grilled or sautéed fish—from locally caught whitefish to flown-in ahi tuna—plus steaks, barbecued ribs, and pasta dishes such as tequila-lime chicken pasta. Sunday brunch service and a curated list of fine wines make this more than a typical waterfront café.
