A word from Chandler's a Restaurant
Chandler’s opened it’s doors in December of 1999 behind the historical Symons General Store building. It’s a cozy place with only 50 seats in the main dining room & 10 seats at the bar. When real estate is too tough to find - it’s standing room only! For a change of scenery, guests can enjoy dining in the wine cellar where they are surrounded by the 4,000 bottle collection that serves both the restaurant and Symons General Store. In the warmer months, guests can choose to dine outside, on Chandler’s brick courtyard.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "During our booking, I requested a quiet table to celebrate my son's birthday. They gave us a table practically in the kitchen. We were constantly bumped into by the waitstaff. It was so crowded and loud we couldn't even carry on a conversation. It was unfortunate because the food was very good."

  • "The food was amazing, the staff as usual were wonderful. Great ambience EXCEPT we went on a cold night and they had a hard time keeping the wine cellar warm. Can't really blame them as it was so so cold out. Otherwise wonderful food and drinks!"

  • "We have been dining at Chandler's for many years. The food has never disappointed. The service borders on being "too efficient." It just isn't warm and fuzzy, but we received our drinks, salads, and meals in a very timely manner. The space inside is tight and cozy and we love their open-concept kitchen. They also offer dining across the courtyard in the wine cellar, which is a unique experience. The food is very good, fresh, and creative. I highly recommend the Awesome Coffee for dessert on a snowy, cold night. And sitting outside on a lovely summer day is quite nice."

  • "Any trip to petosky always includes a dinner at chandlers, it's our favorite sat night stop. We love the food cocktails and the wine list, the staff are warm and welcoming and the service is always top notch. A bit noisy, but in a vibrant way, they often have music, with a musician that plays easy jazz or blues music."

  • "I worked fine dining all through college and have always loved trying new places. Chandlers Wine Cellar is so intimate, the staff is extremely knowledgeable and helpful and the food is consistently amazing! Despite the 1 hour and 15 minute drive for us to go here, this is the only place we go now for any special occasion meal. It is a true treat and we are ecstatic we found it. The Calamari is a must have!! Best I've had anywhere and the ambiance and wine choices are phenomenal! Highly recommend!!"
