“Takes reservations so it works on busy Petoskey weekends.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

Fairly priced food for your family. Loud and busy. I'm not sure we will return to this restaurant. Too many great places to eat in Petoskey to settle for this one.

“Umm-yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

The meal was outstanding-as is the beer selection. I chose this based on a Trip Advisor review and am very happy I did so. The service was also outstanding. It is a great relaxed middle of the road priced choice. The server consistently steered us in the right direction on the menu. What a great dinner!

“Great Food at City Park Grill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

The front desk at our motel recommended the City Park Grill which confirmed what one of our tour books also recommended. We were in town for one night (June 17), a bit road weary, and looking for a meal. What we were served was outstanding. Our waitress - Jan or Janiett - made an outstanding wine recommendation as well as knowledgeable comments on our menu questions. The food was excellently prepared, and obviously the chef knows their way around the kitchen. The Whitefish was fresh that day, as stated by the waitress, and perfectly prepared. Even the vegetable were perfect - not the overcooked mush that often is served. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone. See the old bar is just another interesting reason to stop, and we observed many have their dinner in the bar side rather than the restaurant where we dined. The manager/owner checked on our satisfaction and was very pleasant.
