Beautiful place, great views

We had a party of 16 on July 4 weekend. It was an hour wait which flew by quickly because of the amazing outside picnic table area with great waitresses tending to our drink needs. The kids ran around on the grassy area and walked down the dock. There was cool music playing. We were seated at a... read more

Several locals recommended this restaurant, which does not take reservations. The calamari was tender, the walleye was delicious and the salmon was perfectly grilled, and the bread was warm and fresh. We looked out on the bay from our table, which we loved. Service was excellent. There were lots of families with young children, yet the place was not noisy.... More

Did the Sunday brunch before heading home and although the view is spectacular, the food was only average but the prices weren't. It wasn't a bad experience just overpriced.

Ribs were tasty and tender, and the view from the outdoor seating area on the bay was amazing, only downside to the visit was the drink prices....$11 for a glass of wine??? A small glass at that. My friend has a marguarita for the same price, should have had what she had LOL!! Meal prices were pretty average, and the... More

The expansive outside patio features two bars and plenty of seating along the bay as well as in the grass facing the bay. The menu has a wide variety of choices. I really enjoyed the prime rib with asparagus, a couple of craft beers, and the carrot cake. If you're able to spend time on the patio prior to eating... More

Beautiful restaurant and gorgeous view and tiki bar area out back but the food was only ok. For $25 a plate I expected something delicious. Nothing we got was note worthy. My husband and I had no other words to describe dinner besides it was ok. I was very disappointed with the meal. The fish was really flavorless. I would... More

If not for the great view on the bay and the bar service on the lawn, waiting and 1 hour and 20 minutes would have been completely unreasonable (they don't take call ahead or reservations). I had a walnut crusted whitefish which was good, but maybe a bit heavy. My wife had a small steak that she enjoyed. Looks like... More

Pretty place and a nice view. Servers were friendly and efficient. There were five of us for dinner. The chicken (something) salad was great, but the side salads quickly put together with those cheap croutons. Two of us had fish and that was cooked well and very tasteful. Two of us also had pasta dishes the flavoring was off and... More

We capped off a lovely day, at the Northern Michigan wineries, with a dinner at The Apache Trout Grill. I advise visiting the restaurant before the sun goes down, so that you can enjoy drinks by the bay. They also have a low priced Happy Hour, with glasses of house wine for only $4 and domestic beer is $2.50. My... More
