We ate at Whitecaps on a recent trip to the Petoskey area. The decor is very sterile but the view is excellent over the bay. The sunset does tend to be a bit blinding if you are facing northwest.
The salads, entrees, and bread were all excellent. The cake ball for dessert was too heavy though and not at all subtle. Service was very nice. Reasonable value.

We had our union meeting here and I was super dissappointed by the food. I expected it to be a lot better due to all the hype about how fancy they were supposed to be. My food was bland and nothing I would want to eat again. Plus the parking there is terrible.

We ate dinner here on a Friday evening and were pleasantly surprised. Traci was an excellent server, very prompt, friendly and sincere. This is a fancier restaurant than we would normally go to, but we felt comfortable in our jeans and fit in with the rest of the crowd. The mussel appetizer was delicious, a perfect blend of white wine, garlic, lemon juice and shallots. Our meals were fantastic, and the presentation was beautiful.Whitecaps is an excellent place for seafood, they had a wide selection from ocean to freshwater catches. This is a great place to celebrate a fun day in Petoskey!

Outstanding whitefish and chips! I'm not really into calamari, but their version was outstanding. Lightly breaded in a very flavorful sauce. Nice beer and wine selection, and very good service. It also has a nice view of the bay, so get there early or make a reservation and request a table with a view. Was there on business and would absolutely return when back in the area.
