I'm a new local (within the year) to Petoskey. My husband and I love trying new restaurants and have been to Bay Harbor several times for events, but never to "Knot Just a Bar." We thought we would give it a try and I was...More

We always stop here when up north. Delicious steak bites cooked to perfection, but this visit there were 6 TINY pieces of meat. Will have to find another place for steak bites.

Great spot for a bloody mary and beers. Their menu is pretty broad, but is mainly bar style food and sandwiches. A good place for lunch or a casual dinner. Wide selection of northern Michigan brews. On a nice day the patio is a good...More

It's Sknot that good... I n fact...It's horrible. Service was bad. Food over cooked, and my gut is killing me. Waitress spilled blue cheese on my friends coat. They acted like it was normal... Go elsewhere..

Cocktail reception at Knot. Service was good and the appetizers were adequate. Setting overlooking the harbor is spectacular. Really need to be staying in the Village to access.

Waterfront restaurant at Bay Harbor Michigan overlooking the bay with inside and outside dining. We chose outside, a beautiful night with a gorgeous sunset. A delightful view of the boat dock with boats docking. The food was excellent.
