We had great service, wonderful food and a spectacular view of the West Bay. Can't say enough good things about this place. To avoid a long wait, get there before 5:30 however.
Bobber5555 mentioned a long wait despite having a reservation. Apache Trout Grill does NOT take reservations! Bobber must have been thinking of some other restaurant.

We've only been here once but the almond crusted whitefish with the amaretto cherry sauce was amazing! The tables with the great views were already full but we could still see the bay. Can't wait to go back again!

Despite reservations for 6:30pm, we were not seated until 8:30pm. The wait was not worth mediocre food accompanied by high prices. The wait staff was pleasant and helpful but cannot overcome bumbling management.

Compared to the wait, the food was not exceptional. If you are going to find a "low fat" or healthy meal, this would not be the place to go. Everything was fried, covered in a cream sauce or other sugary sauce. I was not impressed with the selection of local fish options and there was not a great diversity between the fish dishes. I expected quality for the price I paid, but would not pay that again for the dish I received. Beautiful view, but that does not enhance the quality of the food.

This was our first stop at the Apache Grill and is now on the top of my restaurant list for lunch. The view is excellent as you overlook Grand Traverse Bay from the west. Our server was fantastic and the food and beverages were delicious. We will be back to sample the dinner menu!
