    GF menu excellent, on pricey side but fish worth it. Bar service was average. They seemed to have a bit of a fly problem which always aggravates me so if this was improved it would have been a 5

    CAUTION! Ordered two items from GF menu, they were BOTH served as the full gluten versions--regular crackers came with the gf appetizer. They didn't look GF so I asked TWICE and was assured they were and ate them. Ten mins later waitress came running out saying sorry you were right those were regular crackers. Then ordered steak off GF menu and it came drenched in gravy. I was skeptical so this time I didn't eat until they confirmed that yes, they had given me a regular steak even after the appetizer fiasco that ended in them giving me Benadryl. While I appreciate restaurants that offer a GF menu, if you can't handle actually preparing food GF, please just don't offer a GF menu.

    We went to Apache Trout Grill specifically because we were looking for a Celiac-safe restaurant for our son who has Celiac Disease. We ordered an appetizer off the GF menu and specified that our son had Celiac Disease and could not have any gluten. Our server brought the appetizer (from the GF menu) on a plate with different types of crackers (all containing gluten) and a side plate with rice crackers - not at all aware that she contaminated his appetizer (from the GF menu) by having all of the crackers on it. When my husband explained the problem with the appetizer, the server got defensive and said that is why she brought rice crackers on the side. She basically had no clue, but I also don't know how a restaurant with a GF menu doesn't understand that it can't have gluten containing foods on it. We did not have much confidence in the restaurant, nor did we get any kind of apology for the mess up. We would not return. P.S. We had two other issues not related to GF. We would definitely NOT recommend!!

    Neither the kitchen, nor the staff was educated on what was gluten free. Ordered off the gluten free menu and was served tuna with soy sauce on it. It took 10 minutes after I inquired as to whether or not it was gluten free soy sauce to get an answer (which was no it was not gluten free). Went here for our first anniversary and got sick. luckily I had only 1 bite before I realized there was soy sauce on but that's all it takes. I don't recommend this for anyone with celiac disease or a sensitivity

    Fabulous food and service. Complete GF options. Very accompanying waiter, Jason, who was very knowledgable. Outstanding views. Had the Michigan whitefish and the shrimp appetizer! Excellent-price well worth it!

    Ate here for lunch and they did not have many GF options on the menu, but we're able to accommodate with several dishes upon request. I had the walleye, which was delicious and they even made a small helping of GF cream sauce. Disappointed that there was not more fish to choose from. Also, I'd rate this as a five star setting and view of the water with an amazing patio, but two star service. Our waitress was not knowledgable about GF dining.
