Actually, this was the only decent restaurant we found in Petoskey but sure there are other good ones! The Walleye was wonderful and Chicken Marsala was good! Service was excellent!

Happy hour is the best! Cheap drinks and 1/2 off appetizers, until 6:30. I had a big glass of wine and an awesome calamari dish, all for $10. And they bring out fresh, hot biscuits that are to die for!!!

Atmosphere is very historic...maybe not exactly like when Hemmingway hung out but still retained some historic charm. Food was real good....biscuits were delicious! Server was attentive. Couldn't ask for more.

Certainly the reviews suggest this an awesome place....yeah not so much. It’s very simple, the service was slow and non existent. The food was NOT delicious and our food was barely warm, although the biscuits were good. It’s not a good value for your money,...More
