    As usual, an excellent meal with good service and a fun ambiance. Originally seated next to a window, it was quite chilly so our waitress suggested a move to the back of the restaurant where it was very cozy.

    We usually enjoy the food at Pierson’s. However this meal was almost inedible. The whitefish that a colleague and I had was not fresh/very fishy and was slathered in a glaze which almost seemed like they were covering the taste.

    If you want a combination of an upbeat envirnoment, a cool little bar and outdoor seating, this is your place. The food was outstanding. My whitefish was not overseasoned which allowed the taste to come through. My friend had the amish chicken which was superb. Can't go wrong at this place

    This is a well located restaurant and nicely decorated. The service was very friendly and the price is reasonable. My husband enjoyed his burger. My fish dinner was absolutely flavorless. No amount of salt could help. I think if you choose one of the sandwiches or less complicated meals you might be OK though. Great price on the wine too!

    We heard about Piersons through friends of ours and decided to go. We used OpenTable about 4 days in advance to book our request for the Outdoor Patio. Sure enough, when we arrived at Pierson's on a Friday, our table was ready and had the Reserve sign on it. That was a good start. Then, we had this amazing young gentleman, named Jimmy, who was very attentive and on-the-ball throughout our time there. The food was also amazing. My wife ordered the Cobb Salad and I had the Swiss-Mushroom Burger. We truly had a great experience and are definitely going to re-visit again.

    Enjoyed our lunch on a very busy day at Pierson's but the staff was friendly and efficient. Our food was tasty and we loved sitting outside (even though it was a rainy day.) The canopy overhead was perfect! I used OpenTable to make a last-minute reservation and got right in. We will be back!

    Excellent service with an experienced waiter and new trainee. The best french dip sandwich I've ever eaten and the most generous pour on drinks. Ask to sit outside or inside where the bar is located if you want a quieter atmosphere. There are many children playing games on one side of the restaurant.

    Some of the best tasting and well cooked meals we had on our trip. Flavours were excellent and the meals were cooked perfectly. Our group had the white fish, chicken, flat iron steak, pizza and a calamari app. The only mild down point is the pizza had too much cheese for our taste, but it was cooked well and the crust was very good. After an initial attempt to try the place out early in the week, we were unable to get a walk in table; we made a reservation for this visit. Server was very friendly and accommodating. Loved the shuffle board and video games while we waited for our meal.

    Our server (young man) was excellent. Very attentive & kind. Food great. We ate outside during street music which was fun. Only complaint was there was a couple sitting on the ledge right next to our table, facing us, they might as well have been with us lol. It was a little uncomfortable for my daughters tho. They went to bar for drinks (4x we saw) so didn’t even have a table out there. Will definitely say something if it happens again. Totally love Piersons

    Service just isn't the same anymore. We requested several times that our salads come before our main meal. Our servers response was always 'absolutely'. After the fourth time we finally got our salads. Two minutes later our main course arrived. Whitefish was extremely dry and tasteless, as was the risotto. You're better off getting appetizers and sandwiches here.

    I had one of the best corned beef sandwiches I've ever had here (and I've eaten a lot over the years) - called the "5 dragon" and the meat was incredibly tender. Hamburgers are very nice size of 8 oz. of beef. We were in a booth and the only negative is that the bench seats were terribly uncomfortable ... broken springs, duck taped seat covers and hard metal under frame - time to get new bench seats!

    We were able to call ahead and get right in. Food came quickly and there was a nice variety to choose from - upscale bar food plus pizza and some healthy salad options. Slim on “entrees” type options. Service was great and it was a solid meal with nice atmosphere. We liked the skiing memorabilia. It was a little pricey for the food but I think that’s sort of Harbor Springs overall . . .

    I was always please with the food before. So I took my out of town guest there. He ordered the white chicken chili. He said it looked like baby food. Tasteless. Chandlers other restaurant the pub serves white chicken chili and it very good. He it was disappointing. I was embarrassed. We ordered the olive burger but the meat was tasteless. No flavor. Presentation look. My female guest ordered the ribs and loved it. I also had chicken noodle soup and it as very good. Service could have been more attentive. Liked the opentable reservations program. Got there and table was ready. I question going back as I’m a Petoskey resident. Food quality needs improvement.
