Reviewed September 20, 2012

We stopped in for a small bite for lunch because dinner was a little pricy. Tried the calamari appetizer-best I ever had. Casual atmosphere and friendly bartender and locals. Downtown Petoskey location is a gem. Liked Symon's General Store and the wine cellar as well. We purchased some local wine for a friend-huge selection! Can't wait to go back on our next visit!

“Good food, nice ambiance”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Good wine selection and service. Salads and sandwiches were very good. The dessert was a bit pricy for the quality/quantity.

“Exceptional food. Great service”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

We ate a really great lunch. We'll be back.

Panzanella steak salad was delicious. Burger was perfect. Great atmosphere. Service was perfect. Not too much attention, not too little.

Basically everything was right on.

“Expensive for what you get but exceptional food!”
Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

I had the Tombo tuna salad along with the tomato salad. Those were 31.00. Very over priced for the amount of food you get. Had to eat extra bread to fill up but the food was OUTSTANDING!! Would be my favorite restaurant in Petoskey if it was not for the high prices.

“Girls night that will be hard to top!”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

We had a girls weekend away and all 6 of us loved our food, wine and great service from Megan. The quinoa salad & calamari to start were perfect and the salmon & tile fish were very tasty & you can never go wrong with creme brulee!
