The food and service at Knot Just a Bar are good, but generally would be described as standard. The venue is mostly known for its location. Know Just a Bar is crowded in both the winter and summer months. It draws a good late night crowd, as people come from all around to take advantage of its location right on... More

Good atmosphere, great lake side views, nicely priced menu and family friendly. Get the fish and chips and bring a friend!

Beautiful location right on the harbor. Nice outdoor dining area, some gorgeous boats out there. Food's pretty good although I generally go for cocktails and appetizers. Highly recommend the steak bites. Delicious. Nothing to get too excited about but I like the place, especially in season. Heard the fish is good(it's Northern Michigan) but I haven't tried it.

It was a little windy outside, in the evening, so most people moved inside. It offered a nice respite for a light meal. Fish Chowder was good, and the Steak Bites were great! Enjoy!

We really enjoyed Knot's. Our server Chantelle was very sweet and accommodating. The hummus and pita chips are deelish! The tortilla soup was their special and it was really good. It's a broth-based soup - not the thick, cheesy stuff a lot of places serve. The mahi tacos were also really good. The sweet potato fries were average - a... More

We had dinner here our first night in Petoskey. It wasn't crowded and we were seated right away at a table with a view of the water. My menu wasn't clean, it had pieces of food stuck to it. Our server was friendly and helpful. I had the shrimp and French onion soup. Both were good. We also tried the... More

To receive the best service we are after the young families from the Bay harbor area had departed and we enjoyed a sunset over the yachts and waterfront houses . We began with wine and our server was attentive allowing time to enjoy the view and to review the menu. We selected the scrumptious Mahi Mahi and side salad .... More

What a cute little nautical themed bar/restaurant in a beautiful setting. At there two times, a week apart, ordered the same identical meal: French Onion Soup and the Wedge Salad. The portion sizes on the salad were not consistent. The first meal we had 3 small halves of romaine lettuce with bleu cheese crumbles, bacon, cherry tomatoes, and bleu cheese... More

Shrimp was overlooked with too much breading. It was an hour before our table was served. Brownie with ice cream was a little hard. Nice view.

Knot, just a bar is actually in Bay Harbor about 15 minutes from Petoskey. The Knot Seafood Chowder was creamy rich with a spoonful of seafood. Quick and good service with a waterfront view of the boats and a lawn wedding at the Bay Harbor Hotel. Open 7 days a week.
