First time to Petoskey and City Park Grill was highly recommended—and it did not disappoint. Had a great rib eye that was cooked to perfection. Prices were reasonable and service was excellent...will return for sure!

Our first impressions were good despite the obvious wear and tear on a carpet that had seen its best decade a while back. But a Hemingway daquiri came with a dried lime and an undertone of the famous man’s cigars. The lamb and fig in...More

Visited City Park Grill on Sunday night of Labor Day. The building is located 1 block north of the historic Petosky blocks. There is convenient parking in a large city lot across the street. To our surprise, the restaurant was busy for a Sunday night....More

Lovely dining area but way better to eat in or at the bar. Go for the chowder, pair it with calamari and your favorite beverage (they have Stella on tap!), and that's all the reason you'll need to return again and again. Great service great...More

A nice historic restaurant with good food and service. A good selection of beers. I had the whitefish, which was excellent. My wife had the chicken, which she said was also excellent. Service was good. I would stop in here again if in the area.
