We are usually greeted at the door by the owner of The Side Door. The lunch service is friendly and quick during the lunch hour.

Took the family (extended) out for food we heard was great and on time. The prices were good and the food even better.

This pleasant eatery, with its good food, drinks and service deserves to be as busy as it is. You won't find a better burger, (both the taste and how it's cooked) in the area. Try their olive burger. It's the best. For the money, they should include fries with their burgers and sandwiches and they'd rate a 5th star.

I finally found a place that actually prepares burgers to order. I prefer medium rare which must be hard to achieve, since It is difficult to find a restaurant that can do it correctly. They nailed it. Perfect! The server could have been more attentive for they were not that busy. Try the olive burger if you like olives. My... More

We love the Side Door! Being a local we usually don't get to go very often in the summer, but we did sneak in twice this summer. The food is great! Best quesadilla's in Petoskey! I love the southwest salad, and Brett's Big Dog Brownie, is amazing!

Kids got quesadilla which was good and other got Mac and cheese which was just kraft from the box it seamed. Nice drink specials every night. Great place for... More

This has been a great standby for me for several years now; I have never had a disappointing experience. Their burgers are awesome; perhaps the best in the area. EVERYTHING on the menu is very good- yes, I've tried it all. Quesadillas, wraps, burgers, steaks, soups, etc.; all the meals are good. Frank runs a tight ship and all the... More

I had the steak quesadilla but my friend, who is vegan, was happy with the portobello sandwich. We sat outside and it was good.

I had dinner there twice on a recent trip to Michigan and it was great both times. Very low key and casual atmosphere......and the olive burger was Awesome! One night I had it with mushrooms, chees and bacon! They have a diverse menu, including salads - the Greek salad is great!
