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.

    Old school Petosky fine dining that feels like an intimate ski lodge hideaway. Highly recommend!!

    Loved the kale salad with pomegranates - lightly dressed, which they were nice enough to split between me and my husband. Scallops were very good as were drinks like lemon drop and hummer. Nice friendly efficient service. Thank you for a nice evening out.

    Server Kim G was outstanding. Food presentation & flavor was excellent. We’ve been here before but not for a few months. There’s obviously been some great changes. Still a little cool every time they open the main entry door & a little noisy. Would highly recommend this establishment.

    Chandler's is one of our favorites in Petoskey. They offered a nice menu for Easter Sunday. I had the Pappardelle Pasta with Shrimp. It was amazing! Ingredients were fresh and tasty, especially the Shrimp. The use Oishii Shrimp which are said to be one of the best for their texture, firmness and flavor. My wife had the steak with mushroom sauce, fingerling potatoes and haricot verts. I tasted her steak which was also very flavorful and cooked perfectly. Add a bottle of Duckhorn Chardonnay and we had the Easter dinner. Our server was very friendly, attentive. Would definitely recommend if in Petoskey.
