Enjoyed dinner here on a cold and snowy evening. Fireplace was warm and cozy. Dinner was delicious. Husband enjoyed the grilled swordfish dinner and I had a delicious small filet. Great service.

We go to this brunch every single year for Mother's Day. Expensive but so good! A wide variety of food and fresh fruit, crepe and omelette station. Staff is pretty good. No reservations accepted for this particular brunch but for regular days they are. Food is mid priced, full bar and separate bar seating area. Great coffee!

This is probably one of the only true waterfront restaurants in Traverse City not connected to a hotel. Lovely place but the menu stopped being interesting many years ago. Such a menu is OK if each item is a star but sadly this is not the case. The kitchen cranks out the same old stuff and the biggest change is... More

I am a local in Traverse and have never had a bad meal or experience at Apache. One of our favorite restaurants to go to for lunch or dinner. Summer time is fun to take the boat to Apache and have drinks outside.

Delightful meal here last weekend. My husband had the ribs, our friend had the prime rib and I had the glorious shrimp dish. The baked beans rocked the planet. Good Bloody Marys and fun bartenders. Our waiter, Andy, was a super nice guy.

We've been here a few times and each was excellent. Great atmosphere, view. And great food. It's a very popular place to eat in town. And very far out of town to the west. Great for couples and families.
