We knew what we were getting when we walked in thanks to Trip Advisor. Our food was just average, service was good, view was really nice. It worked for us for a convenient lunch.

Had lunch here based on a recommendation from a local. View would have been nice but the weather was cloudy. Food was just OK, nothing to right home about. Standard diner offerings. Clam chowder, soup, sandwiches. $5 for a 12 oz Mad Hatter IPA. Overall average.

Knot Just A Bar is located next to the marina in Bay Harbor. Picturesque location with inside and outside seating. Great service, friendly staff and OK food. If you are in the Petoskey, Michigan are Bar Harbor is a nice walk through and a stop t Knot Just A Bar is a nice stop for a casual lunch or dinner.

Stopped in for lunch had the Shrimp Caesar Salad 14.99. The salad was fabulous, the shrimp was fresh and good quality. Staff at the bar a little inattentive but a very enjoyable experience.

Both times I've eaten here the meals were just average. I haven't eaten there in about a year so hopefully the've made some needed improvements.

We went here for lunch while waiting for an appointment. I had a salmon burger and my fiancé had chowder. The food was good but not great. It has a good bar atmosphere with a nice view of a marina.
