About 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.

Chandler's a Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
The food and beverages are always amazing. The waitstaff is amazing. The bartenders are talented and hilarious. The cooks are the best! All food came to the table hot, and out waitress was very attentive. I highly recommend Chandler’s a Restaurant for any dining occasion.
All was good except the dining room is freezing. All of the guests kept their sweaters and jackets on- not a great place to go in the winter because of this problem even though we love the restaurant. We asked for an inside table far away from the door- we were seated deep inside but next to the wall which does not seem insulated as it was freezing!
We took a night off of holiday cooking and treated the family to dinner at Chandlers. Everything, from the cocktails, wine, and food, to the service and ambiance, was perfect. Our adult children love going to Chandlers when they are home for holidays. The atmosphere is very festive and welcoming.
Outstanding food. Were greeted as soon as we walked into the door and were immediately brought to our table. Service was excellent. It was attentive but not overwhelming. The cost is pricey, but well worth the quality of the experience - especially the food. We will definitely be back again.
We always enjoy Chandler's as food is scrumptious, service is friendly, fun, and efficient. Only drawback is the noise level. Met some friends there this week who had traveled around the world and were enjoying catching up with them. A group of 7 or so ladies and a gentleman who were in the back of the room and were thoroughly enjoying themselves, prevented us from serious conversation. Other tables around us began chatting about the lack of respect for others at the venue from this group. Having said the above, knowing it could be exactly what it was with the noise, we entertained them at our home for dinner the previous night. We ended our summer with friends as we begin each summer...with a 'hummer' .
Food is good, but I feel a bit over-priced as you don't get a salad with the entrees. Very noisy in the wine cellar, making it difficult to talk to your friends, even at a small table. We enjoy going once a year, but won't make it a regular visit. There are other places in the Petoskey/Harbor Springs area that are just as good and less expensive.
My husband and I enjoy fine dining. We were fans of Sage at Odawa Casino until we found Chandler's! Their food is every bit as Gourmet as Sage with a more relaxed atmosphere and tons of personality. What a quaint little restaurant! Love it and the wonderful food! They also have a great selection of wines, the best! We will visit every time we are in town, cannot get enough of Chandler's!
This is my second time to dine here! This is a well established small intimate restaurant. The menu is eclectic, and the food very good. The kitchen is open, with inside and outside seating. The music is soft, and the room full of positive energy! I know you will like it!
My wife and I recently had 3 dinners at Chandler's in Petoskey. We ate twice in their "main" pine-paneled bar/dining room and once in their "wine cellar". Each venue was not luxurious but offered a pleasantly "cozy" environment. The wine list was quite adequate; we found 2 very satisfactory cabs. They also have some very high-end expensive bottles if you are lucky enough to have your dinner companion buying the libation. The food was good and not fussy; we sampled halibut, scallops, beef tenderloin, duck breast, and chicken. We'll definitely head back to Chandler's when we return to visit Petoskey.
