Had dinner with friends on a Friday night. No problem getting seated without a reservation. Their beer list is small but they had good options. Crab legs and prime rib special $45. They have sandwiches and burgers too. Everything was done well. Will go back!

We popped in to the Apache Trout Grill for a late lunch. The food and service was great, and the view of the bay was just beautiful. I wish it had been warmer so we could have sat outside on the patio.
