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.

Excellent menu and wine list. Our server, Renae, was a jam! Lamb shank, filet and halibut were all excellent! We love the atmosphere..you can talk and laugh and carry on without fear of offending someone. Overall just fantastic

Myself, my husband and 4 other couples went there on a Saturday night in March. We were sat in the wine cellar which was the perfect atmosphere for our group. We couldn't get enough of it. Food was great and our server Heidi made a good experience even better. Can't say enough good things about this place. Would highly recommend it to ANYONE and definitely hope to make it there again. I would not bring children, at least to the lower level.

We heard great things about Chandler"s and we were excited to visit. This is where I picked for my Birthday dinner. It was a nasty weather night but, we made the drive in from Boyne City. We had a reservation and a gift certificate.
The menu was very limited and my husband is a vegetarian and they didn't not have an option. He was treated like a second class citizen. The server was not knowledge about the food choices. This was like going to a bar with white table cloths and not a fine dinning experience. Wine selection was good and the server was good at filling the water glasses.

We love Chandler's! My wife and I choose Chandler's anytime we are in Petoskey. Our last trip consisted of 9 family members, 3 of which were children aged 3, 4, and 8. We were seated in the Cellar and it provided the perfect area for our group. The food was fabulous as was our server, Heidi. We normally don't do dessert but it was my wife's birthday so we all indulged in a dessert. Hers was not complimentary, which surprised us, but that did not stop us of from going all out and ordering one for everyone. Delicious! Chandler's is still number one for us!

Outstanding food. Outstanding service. The best quality food and service in Petoskey. There is not a restaurant in Petoskey that is even close to this place in terms of quality. Definitely Petoskey’s best.

Our only issue was draft beers that were missing about an inch and half ... For the place and service we should be getting topped off beers.

Food was awesome but there was a loooooong time before we got it.... Thankfully it really was worth the wait.
