Good comfort food!!!

Our waitress was friendly and efficient. Food was good, place could use an update. Not very busy but we were there for an early dinner on a Sunday evening. When I paid she asked if I was over 55 and then gave me a discount, which was very nice because I didn't know they had a discount for over... read more

The restaurant has a Coney Island restaurant feel.. The building is showing a little dating. Our waitress was very friendly and nice. They seem to have specials every day. Our table all liked their meals. I hear they are great for breakfast but we were there for dinner. Everything was good. it is not a fancy place but an affordable... More

Filmore's serves good basic home cooked meals. There are specials every day and the waitstaff are always friendly.

We had the taco salad and it was more than I could eat. The wait staff was friendly and the atmosphere family friendly.

Still the best place to go for breakfast, anytime of the day. Have never been disappointed with food or service. Our favorite is the skillet breakfast with pancakes. YUM! And I love to watch the birds at the feeders.

I have recently moved to Petoskey and my roommates talked up "Filmore's" as if it would be a religious experience. It is adequate at best. It is really no better than going to a Bob Evan's or Big Boy's. I have been there twice, the first time ordering chicken wings, the second time ordering a basic breakfast. Neither were really...

We basically ate here because it was within walking distance from our hotel. It has a Coney Island feel to the inside and the hostess clearly was not thrilled to be at work. She was not rude but didn't offer a greeting and never smiled. Our waitress had two very large tables as well as four or five occupied booths.... More

Had breakfast here full first day, and was pleasantly surprised. The wait staff was great. My only concern is that the scratch made gravy might not have been so.

This was a busy place but well worth the wait. We got seated quickly and ordered, the meal took a little bit, but the waitress made sure we had coffee and beverages. The Eggs Benedict was wonderful, omelets and scrambles were also tasty...french toast a nice size serving. Hash Browns were crisp and delicious. Great pricing. Much better than the... More

On any visit to Petoskey I will generally have one meal at Filmore's. It is well located among the hotels on US-131, reasonably priced with daily specials, and pretty good food. As other reviewers have noted, this is not a bastion of haute cuisine. It is a family-type place to get regular food for regular people as opposed to many... More
