---2 adults on two weekday evenings and one weekend evening. There is a huge parking lot in front of Filmore's, although we walked from a hotel. It was never crowded and we were always seated immediately. Placemats advertising area businesses were on the booth's table. Most seating was in large booths. Newspapers, which other diners had left behind, were available... More

In Petoskey you'll notice that many dining spots are heavy on the over priced micro brews and 'tini's that they offer/push, albeit offering good, creative menus most with lofty prices. None of that at Filmore's! What you'll find is hot beef sandwiches, turkey, blt's, steak & eggs, breakfast any time, meatloaf! All very good served to you in comfortable roomy... More

There were 3 adults and 2 children (ages 4 and 7) in our party. We were seated within a reasonable time and the children were provided with activity placemats and crayons. We were here around 1 p.m. on a Sunday. Service was adequate. The kids were happy with their meals and the 7-year-old declared that this was his new favorite... More

My 2 friends and I walked to the restaurant for dinner. Service was good, food good- served hot and prices were reasonable. I would recommend the wet burrito.

Wife and I stopped in and had a quick bite there one night while staying in Petoskey. Average menu, but it gets the job done. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a family with kids. Decent prices, it's nice when you are on vacation to get a decent meal and not be gouged. We both had sandwiches with a... More

Stopped by there on our last day, hoping for a good hearty breakfast....nope. I had the build your own omlet, average, the hash browns were too thick when cooked so lots of soft potatoes, I think they have a mold they cook them in because both of ours were the exact size. Hubby had eggs, bacon & sausage. Eggs over... More

I ordered that Philly Cheese Steak, it was on a "mini sub roll" so very small for a philly and it was just thrown together, no presentation at all, and they just plopped cream cheese on it, who puts plain cream cheese on a Philly?? Probably will not eat there again, the server was nice, but took a long time... More

parents shared omelet, each had coffee. I had French toast, no one had meat, and the bill was about $25! Bird feeders around the perimeter of the restaurant was a nice touch, and the location was perfect...
