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.

Considering everyone is wearing masks, social distancing, using hand sanitizer in between courses, it was so comfortable dining during a world crisis! Kudos to this restaurant for being so good about safe practices while serving outstanding food. We had a lovely waitress as well who went above and beyond to keep everyone happy! I cannot wait to return soon! The ambiance was incredible too.

Service by Jordan was efficient and professional. He made entree recommendations that were spot on. The food came out piping hot and exactly as ordered. Chicken and pasta dish was wonderful, great flavors and presentation. Pork shank was heart and salmon was delicious. Best meal we’ve had at chandlers in a number of years.

We had a table of 10 and were served promptly and without a hitch. We all had a totally enjoyable experience. The ambience is second to none and wine tasting during our lunch was a very nice touch. We will definitely be returning. Thanks for topping off our weekend!

Great food overall, sushi was very salty though. Pleasant service. We felt rushed in regards to how fast each course came out. We were celebrating an anniversary, which they knew, but failed to recognize in any way.

Great California Roll and Steak Tartare. Ask to sit in the wine cellar- more room and quieter than room off of the kitchen. Good wine list and attentive service. We were six and had a performance at Bay Harbor and deadline was met with ease.
