Paid too much but food, atmosphere, & service were great! Quaint outside eating area and menu was unique & local fresh foods were used. $39 for halibut, good but over priced. Unfortunately, couldn't find any other game in town with great atmosphere & above average food.

This was our third time eating at Chandler's, and the food and service were once again outstanding! It's hard to find, a small restaurant, pricy, and a bit noisy, but we have never been disappointed.

A little hidden amongst other restaurants and shops. A very casual looking restaurant and bar, with linen dressed tables. Cooking is within view. Wonderful menu, fine wines and a very helpful, knowledgable wait staff. Will and have driven out of my way for this dining experience.

Our friends recommended this place for our trip to Petoskey. We were ignored by the hostess for the first minute as she organized the menus. Then took us inside to our table for two and slapped down the menus ...then just walked away. Our server never cracked a smile and when we thanked her for things, she replied, "Yep." We truly felt like a nuisance and she obviously was having a bad day. It took 30 minutes to get a salad and special kind of eggs Benedict. The benedict dish was very cold. We were never asked how we were doing because she never checked on us. The waitress refreshed my husbands ginger ale without asking, which we thought was a free refill, only to find out it was 2.50 a glass.... Then ask if he wants another, don't assume. Needless to say, we were disappointed.

We're up in Petoskey pretty frequently, and Chandler's is THE best restaurant up there, hands down! It is probably the priciest, but well worth it. The servers know a ton about the wines that they serve, and they will cork a bottle for you if you do not finish it at no additional cost. Last time we were there, I had the filet and he had the fish. The fish is brought in fresh each day and it was amazing. My filet was cooked perfectly and was great with our wine. Amazing restaurant...must go!
