We managed to get a table on the small patio at sunset & it was such a nice time! Our server was knowlwdgeable & friendly. The food was really good. I had the turkey club & it was one of the best I've ever had. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the steak he ordered. We would return for lunch or dinner.

Food was great, went there on Friday night for prime rib. The waitress was NOT very accommodating/polite when we asked if there was any prime rib left. She just said probably not, without even checking. She never did check for us. We ended up asking a wonderful gentleman working there about it and he went in the kitchen to see if there was any left and he put TWO on hold for us. That was awesome!! We still waited like half an hour before the waitress FINALLY believed there was some left and she took our order.

Really lively bar at early dinner hour. Lots of friendly people. Service was excellent. Hot biscuits and butter delivered to the table quickly after we were seated- very good. Steak was very good. Good soup. Good variety of menu choices. Never felt rushed even though they were very busy. Nice convenient location.

We enjoyed our dinner, especially the biscuits served hot when we sat down. (Sadly they never offered us seconds though they did to others) I ordered the French Onion soup[ which was highly spiced (way too much salt and Worcester sauce) but my whitefish sandwich was tasty, the fries were great, and my wife;'s special of the day -- Greek walleye -- was very good. Attentive service. A fun place to go -- old tin ceiling and beautiful antique wood bar --,reasonable prices.

The service and food were excellent. Wait staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Biscuits were amazing. Atmosphere was quaint and historic. Earnest Hemingway wrote a book there and his cigar hole is still in the top of the bar. Wonderful menu!!! Great chicken, steak, and salmon. Would go back again in a heartbeat. Great location and easy parking as well. Buy one glass of wine get the second for one dollar on Wednesdays. Without a doubt the best restaurant in Petoskey!!!
