A bit pricey on some items but excellent food and service. The view to the bay is very very nice too. Parking is a bit of an issue though.

I had the lobster bisque soup the was excellent. For dinner I had the walleye and veggies and it was also great. The service was good. You need to get there by five or will have to wait a long time for a table

Shrimp and Lobster Bisque bowl of soup really hit the spot on a windy northern Michigan day. The cream base soup was very tasty. $8. Served with nice crusty bread. Great view of the bay from all tables. Yummy good.

I am local and dine here often and have for years. Go early in the summer as the wait is long. Good food, service and drinks. Seafood bisque the best with salad and wine. The view is second to none. Enjoy as there is something on the menu for everyone. Enjoy.

Highly recommend the lobster bisque and, frankly, everything else on the menu! They sat us facing Lake Michigan and it was beautiful! Food was a little slow but well worth the wait.

The staff, the food and the view at the Apache Trout Grill are all wonderful! I was there with a fairly large group (12) and the service was great. We tried items from every portion of the menu and we were all blown away. Great appetizers, entrees and sides. I've been there three times so far and I will eat... More
