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.

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.

Always a great experience at Chandler's. Excellent wait staff, warm "Up North" atmosphere and an ever changing menu with great standby dishes like their sushi and roast filet. Reservations highly recommended. Their happy hour at the bar is also a must!

Very good food and service personnel. It is a bit noisy and drafty (in the winter) and the tables are close together (small place). Have always enjoyed my meals there, though

Was surprised to find them open on Christmas Day. The meal was fantastic as usual. We had a great bottle of wine (French red). We were seated in the wine cellar again. There were a couple of parties going on but it was still nice and cosy.

Our table server, Halley, did a marvelous job suggesting choices of entrees and also providing professional, attentive service to our table. She was not intrusive, but was always available at the perfect time. The menu was creative and the execution of the food preparation and presentation was outstanding!
We will definitely return!!

Chandler's was fantastic - highly recommended. My wife and I both thoroughly enjoyed the crab cakes as an appetizer. My wife even asked for (and received!) the recipe for the tartar sauce. The halibut and filet were perfectly done. The service was exceptional - very friendly and available, but not intrusive.

I had really high expectations for Chandlers, however we dined on sunday night so we had to have dinner in the bar dining room which is very small. When they are busy on the weekends they seat in the building next door however on at least Sunday we got sat in the bar dining room which is loud and the tables are on top of each other. Since its small, the staff runs dirty glasseare through the dining room which is a huge no no! We ended up having a few apps and left b/c we were not impressed. Our sushi was worse than the local super market options. Our server however was fantastic so kuddo's to him, however just lackluster! I'lll leave it at that.

Seating is too tight. Room is too hot, always has been. Food is good. The bar is low in these parts, so I'm grateful for Chandlers. Menu could be changed more often-needs freshening. Can this kitchen be challenged?

You don't get enough food for the price.The butter salad was delicious but very small for $14. Ordered the filet medium and came out rare. When I asked the waiter to have it cooked a little longer he held it up to eye level and analyzed it, and proceeded to tell me it was medium. I had to inform him it was not to my liking. Came back cooked correctly and tender but no taste, no flavor. Used the delicious balsalmic on the table to give it something. You get 1 potato cut in half and maybe 2 brussel sprouts. If I went back I would order something different. For a $$ restaurant Fleming's is much better
