I was absolutely shocked by some of the reviews on tripadvisor regarding Chandler's. If I had checked tripadvisor before going out to dinner, I probably wouldn't have chosen this place. Thank God I didn't read the reviews!
I'll make this review short...I would just like to say that the dinner my wife and I had last night at Chandler's was phenominal! Not kiddiing. Everything from the service (Clare, very knowledgeable and helpful), the atmosphere (we sat on the patio), to the food (fish specials) cannot be put into words. I'm serious...Maybe the other reviewers were there on an "off night"........

This was the third time we've been to Chandler's in downtown Petoskey. It's been really good every time. The menu has a good variety of items. They have a great wine list. Prices are reasonable. Atmosphere sitting inside is cozy but a little tight, outside is neat, tucked in between two buildings. They've added a canopy outside since our last visit which seemed like a good idea. It can get a little chilly in the shade there. Our 7 year old had the french toast (we ate an early lunch) which he loved. Their hummus was excellent. Yummy caesar salad. On a past visit we had sauteed scallops on a salad which was awesome.

We enjoyed a nice lunch at Chandler's. This is in the GasLight District. The food is served very well and displayed. It takes even better :)
The location and ambience was very good. It is pretty cute and elegant place to eat. We had Hummus, Gillie, and Trout Cakes. They have very wide selection of wines but we did not try any.
The restaurant is close to very neat shops and Bay Front Park as well. It is all within walking distance.

as i said:
overpriced! the food does not make you feel special. does not seem to be a courtesy preparation just for you. you might as well buy frozen food from the super-market and heat it yourself!

i would only go again if all else was closed and i had a lot of money i did not know what to do with.
