My husband and I have enjoyed many good brunches here but this time it was very disappointing. We both ordered omelets and they were browned and way over cooked. My honeydew melon tasted fishy and I actually spit it out in my napkin. Every time we got up we returned to find our silverware or napkins removed from the table... More

Just finishing our Michigan vacation. From Mackinaw to Holland and then home. We have tried a lot of places along the way. We have loved the hospitality. Today we ate here and the end was the best! Whitefish, lobster bisque an quality service by Natashia! What a beautiful setting. Circle this place as a stop!

This review consists of 4 people on Sunday afternoon in July that were seated right away. Great service. Great bloody Mary's. New York strip was cooked perfectly, calamari was tender, White fish was the largest portion ever seen, excellent meal. Could have been a 5 but it was slightly noisy.

We loved the food! Husband had the fish taco and I had the special of the day turkey with Brie and blueberry/grilled onion chutney sauce on wheat with a cup of shrimp/lobster bisque soup. It was delicious! Kids had the chicken tenders and it was cooked perfectly (not over done). Great friendly service. When we arrived for lunch the parking... More

We stopped in here to have a beer at the bar and enjoy the wonderful view. We did not eat here, but will on our next trip. The bar staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of the local craft beers offered. We had a really good time her and will return.

Fresh fish is always a delight at this restaurant. The ambiance of being almost surrounded by glass one stares at the sailboats on the azure bay seems to make the food seem even better. Don't be mistaken, the food at Apache is excellently prepared and always pleasing. Although this is not family friendly when it comes to pricing, don't miss... More

On the water dining in a tourist town can be less than stellar. Our Hampton Inn recommended this and IT WAS GREAT. You cannot eat outside, but you can have a table on the screened porch facing the water. So make sure you get there early because you do want to eat there. In summer the wait can go to... More

Our family of five ate here for lunch. The Baja tacos were terrific, as was the pecan crusted chicken salad. There was a nice variety on the menu, and the view was lovely. We ate a late lunch, so we had no wait time, but it was expensive, with a total cost of around $80.

Fantastic with great views of the west bay. They have good fish sandwiches and specials, service is good as well , outdoors eat at lunch is strange - not available, not sure why.

We eat here at least once a month in the summer. If you go on a weekend you will have a 1 1/2 hr - 2hr wait. If its nice out this can be a good thing. We like to go around 5:30-6 put our name in and head out back to the waterfront and relax in the Adirondack patio... More
