I'll make this short and sweet - go to the Apache Trout Grill for a great brunch. You won't be disappointed. Very nice wood paneled county atmosphere overlooking the Bay. Excellent selection of food choices from eggs to prime rib. The food was well prepared and delicious. The staff was friendly and attentive. You better be hungry when you go... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants & is very consistent in the quality of food. It's located right on West Bay with beautiful views by the windows. The worst part is finding a parking spot & trying to get in when they're busy. The wait can be quite long and it can be noisy.

I have NEVER had a poor meal or bad experience! The wait at prime time during summer can be very long so either go early or be patient! Tiki bar helps! With all the good choices in TC, I feel guilty going to Apache Trout frequently ... But it's worth it!!!

My wife and I were trying to find a civil and calm place to watch college football with good food and found it at Apache Trout. We were one if the first ones in the bar, as it was a noon game, and the manager treated us like royalty. Great experience, great food, fantastic service by the manager!

Apache Trout Grill has great views and comfortable atmosphere. Food is fairly predictable for the style and I have never had a bad meal here.

My wife and I were referred to this restaurant by locals. No wonder it's a favorite. We heard it is always very busy so parking can be an issue. The setting is spectacular right on the waterside. Great place to enjoy Michigan beer! The food was first rate and the service friendly and fast. You must go if you're in... More

My wife and I ate there for dinner and were very happy with the food service and atmosphere. We were there on a weeknight and despite the fact that they told us to expect a thirty minute wait we were seated within ten. The menu was wide ranging with a great deal beyond the expected fish. I had a pecan... More

We dined here after a fun day of wine tasting on the Leelanau Peninsula- a super ending to a great day. Our server was Scott, an extremely knowledgeable and friendly young man, who did his best to make sure that we were well taken care of. The food was delicious, served hot, and presented attractively. This was our third trip... More

What an excellent brunch spot! We arrived on a Sunday being treated to an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet. Excellent choices included a made-to-order omelet station, but even more special, a hot crepe bar with both savory and sweet offerings. My party tried two: the shrimp-asparagus and a banana-Nutella crepe. Both were excellent, as was the egg white omelet. We also tried... More
