We recently had a weekend casual dinner at Side Door with a group of 8, including two children, and really liked it. Nice local atmosphere with good apps, sides and main dishes. Great service! Would definitely go back again.

In my opinion, no trip to Petoskey is complete until I have an Olive Burger at The Side Door. Olive Burgers are often found on menus in the Petoskey area, and over the years I've tried many. There is something about the olive sauce at The Side Door that makes their burger the best! We often go rather early, before... More

I liked it wasn't too costly and food was good. Not much for windows but neighborhood isn't worth looking at, surrounded by other businesses.

If you want a good burger it's the place to go. The menu is varied and I have heard that everything is great. This is my favorite go to place for hamburgers especially olive burgers. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is very sports bar. It is a fun place to go.

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!

Service and food come out fast here. We had whitefish which was fresh and tasty. Garlic mashed potatoes were great. Wife had the olive mushroom bacon burger which was surprisingly delicious. 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
