Go during the Off-Season or Off-Peak Hours so you don't have to wait (although it would certainly be WORTH it!) Avocado Egg Rolls need some help: Remove the Hot Pepper bits like I did (unless you like spicy foods) and add some Salt, more Onion, Lemon Juice, and maybe a bit of Cilantro, and they'd be Stellar. However: Hubby had... More

Brunch selection was top-notch; it consisted of prime rib, an omelette station, crepe station, variety of pancakes, French toast, scrambled eggs, macaroni and cheese, fresh fruit, copious amounts of bacon, and other scrumptious choices! In addition to the delicious food, the restaurant features a gorgeous view of the water. High quality service. Family friendly. Would highly recommend visiting this restaurant... More

We have eaten here twice now, once back in April and then again this month, and had great meals both times. In April, we came on a Saturday night and the place was jam packed. They don't take reservations or call ahead seating, but they do have a lively (and crowded) bar where you can enjoy a drink while you... More

We had an excellent meal. The bread and pesto olive oil that they bring out is fantastic. The salmon salad was great. The pasta dishes were done well. Everything was good. The wine list was very nice, but pricey.

Not crowded off season. 8 were quickly and easily seated. The shrimp and lobster bisque is spectacular!! Avocado egg rolls (small plates) is plenty to eat. My only criticism of the place is the constant small stream of water running in the bathroom. Faucet needs maintenance.

Lovely restaurant right on the shore so that even in dead of winter, it was a pleasure sitting by the fire watching the water lap the shore. Wish it had a more expansive fish menu - limited choices was a disappointment but what we ordered was prepared well and presentation was outstanding. But our service staff detracted severely from the... More

We've heard of this place by many and how awesome the food was. Last night we finally had the opportunity to try for ourselves. We were greated with a friendly hostess who offered either booth or table seating. We chose booth, but would recommend tables seating as the view is better and close to their fireplace. The booth was more... More

I'll start by saying I've never had a poor experience here by any means. The food is always at least good, and I've never had a negative service experience. However, I've never had an absolutely awesome service to rave about. To me, Apache is just a trusty place to go, knowing you'll have no hiccups or oddities. Of course, experience... More

We have been here a couple of times when visiting Traverse City. The view is great and the meals have been excellent. We have been seated in a booth both times, and think that being seated in a table closer to the water would be a better view. Nevertheless, the food and service has been excellent. I have ordered a... More

A friend had mentioned this place and I had been trying to get up to try it. My in laws were in town so we took a drive. We were there after normal lunch time but before dinner so we did not have to wait to be seated, though it was fairly busy. We asked to sit outside and learned... More
