“Wonderful food, excellent service.”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

After having stayed at the Inn two years ago, we were anxious to again sample the Planked Whitefish. It was every bit as good this time as last. The raspberry vinaigrette salad dressing was outstanding and complemented the meal perfectly. We were also very pleased one night with the different pizzas offered our group. When in the Petoskey area, a stop at the Terrace Inn is a must!

“fine meal”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

Both my husband's Hemingway chicken and my parmesan crusted whitefish were excellent as was the chestnut soup. The waiter was helpful without being overbearing. The wine list was varied including some good Michigan wines.

“Good but busy”
Reviewed January 13, 2012

great food and ambience, but if you choose lunch or dinner time then expect a wait, very popular but very good, great service too.

“Outstanding dinner”
Reviewed November 26, 2011

Can't rave enough about the whitefish. Some of the best we have ever eaten (and we've eaten our share). We had the parmesian crusted, came with mashed potatoes and perfectly cooked green beans. yummmm The restaurant is located in the historic Terrace Inn in the Bayview district of Petoskey. Beautiful! We had great service and were lucky enough to meet the owner and get the history of the Inn. The only con is that we have to go home today and can't go back for dinner tonight. This was by far the best dinner we had during our long Thanksgivng weekend trip. Would absolutely return and recommend!

“Delicious Food and Friendly Service”
Reviewed September 2, 2011

We stopped there last week while on a vacation to Petoskey because we saw the menu in a Dining Magazine. What a great find! The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was so delicious, especially the fresh whitefish cooked on a cedar plank with potato and vegetable.....excellent. Freshly baked bread and unique salads adds to the great dinner. It was a beautiful evening, so we chose to eat out on the porch instead of the dining room...great choice....evening was perfect. Great place!
