wI was traveling in the area, and just stopped in for dinner. Service was good and food was excellent. Location was easy to find as it is right on the main street going through Petoskey. Would return again if I was in the area.

I was there with just my wife and didn't consider a large group setting. It'd be best to simply call them and ask. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful
