The food was pretty darn good. Seating was over the 50 % capacity though and that made the experience sketchy. It was very loud. But a great view of the bay. Friendly servers.
The ambience is a bit stark and loud, but the view is awesome and the food was excellent. Perhaps a couple more desert choices (only 2).
Very personable and attentive. All in all a nice experience and good value.
Creative, tasty food. Excellent service. Speciality drink quite pricey. Even at 50% capacity it is very loud.
Love the bar arrangement! It gets a bit noisy when more people arrive, but that’s all good. The food was very good. Four of us had pesto gnocchi, steak stroganoff, chicken scallopini and tuna ahi bowl. Portions were large but not too large. We all ate everything. Just have to mention that the chicken was overcooked but otherwise everyone’s meal was great. Nice wine and cocktail selection. Service was great by Joann! Prices were reasonable. Will definitely return!
The food and service were exceptional. At the beginning the restaurant was a little too crowded and load, especially in Covid times. Once a couple of tables cleared it was much better!
Great food however the noise level was terrible; will make me reluctant to return
Perfectly prepared food with freshest ingredients. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Great location with beautiful view of Lake Michigan.
Very loud! We could not carry on a conversation! All Waitresses were practically yelling! Crazy busy and I felt really claustrophobic! They also have a parchment for locals over everyone else. I’ve heard from several locals that they enjoy our patronage, but hate us “down staters”, and I felt that here! Food was ok but not fantastic. With that said, our bartender was incredibly great! Welcoming and mixed a fantastic drink!!! But why did we have to wait for a table for 20 minutes when we had a very specific reservation?
New, they will get better, or!
Beautiful space and sunset view is amazing. Jalapeño margarita was lethal- not pleasant at all. Burning mouth and lips after one sip. Had to send back and the ordered a Diet Coke that had ZERO carbonation. Ordered the roasted squash salad which was not roasted, but steamed. Chicken on the salad was slightly pink inside but worst of all was their honey Greek yogurt dressing which was nothing more than milk, sugar and mint. Took the salad home, cooked the chicken more and used dressing from home. My husband’s beef stroganoff was lacking in flavor and beef. Noise level is high. Didn’t complain after the first drink because the waiter gave me the death stare. May try again in a few months after they have worked out the new restaurant kinks because Petoskey needs non-bar food alternatives.
This is our new favorite in Petoskey. Our server, Peter, was truly one of the best I have had. Perfect timing, great suggestions, awesome updates and very cordial and personable. The food was HOT and well timed. We didn't feel rushed. The broccoli with carrot puree was so tasty and rich yet light. The whitefish spread was so yummy--great smokiness and creaminess and the crackers they give you are really different. I would go in there for just wine and spread. My husband had the salmon with a cherry glaze with these sautéed veggies he raved about. My stroganoff pappardelle was delicious!!! Tender steak and wonderful creamy mushroom sauce over what I think was homemade pasta. Truly delicious. It was a great view of the Bay but the only thing that was rough, was the noise. It got quite loud as the night went on. But--that won't stop us....we will be back!!!
The view was amazing as well as the food, cocktails and service. Definitely will return!
This was our first visit since Beacon Bistro opened in Petoskey. We were very pleasantly surprised and definitely plan to go back soon. The food and flavors were amazing and service was top notch! The back room with the great view of Traverse Bay is beautiful and the food is amazing!
Great food, drinks, vibe and service! We'll be going back for sure! The view is gorgeous.
Everything was perfect. Loved the atmosphere. The tune poké bowl was amazing and my husband really enjoyed his soup and beef stroganoff.
Loved it! Delicious cocktails and very friendly and personable staff. Looking forward to our next visit!
Best flavors we’ve been served in a long time!
