I code 1911 as a special treat for my birthday. I could not have made a better selection! The unique historic decor was absolutely beautiful and the service was perfect...... no hovering yet very adequately attentive. Portions are in keeping with gourmet fare and though not overwhelming, we’re very satisfying. The menu is a bit limited but offers selections that appeal to a wide spectrum of diners, including vegetarians.

Super watermelon salad! Take advantage of the 3 item special. The walleye was huge and made 2 meals. It was the perfect weather for eating dinner on the porch.

Made a open table reservation for New Years Eve. They confirmed on Dec 28th. We arrived and they said they don’t have our reservation and we could wait for a table. One hour later they told us they would not seat us. Then they said they don’t take open table reservations because of too many problems with open table and they don’t pay them enough? Not sure what that means as we pay our bill to the restaurant not open table. Completely ruined our New Years and my sons marriage proposal. I am gutted, will never eat here again.

We were very pleased with our dinner, the food was very good. We both had fish, my husband had walleye and I had blackened planked white fish. We went with the prix fixed and it had three courses with salad or soup, entree and dessert for a set price. Very reasonable. Our waiter was very busy with taking care of many tables both in the dinning room and the terrace, so at times I think he struggled. Speaking of the terrace, unless you specify on Open Table when you make the reservation they will most likely give you a table in the main dinning room, so if you do want to be able to see the sunset make sure that you ask for the terrace room with your reservation. We will defiantly be coming back to this fine restrauant.

What a lovely place to enjoy dinner. Our 2nd time there-first time we sat on the porch-loved it-just too cool this time. Waygu sirloin is a keeper! Would do that one again. Nice option is the special priced 3 course meal. So enjoyable-Pam was so attentive.

Hi Sandy..I'm so happy you all came to the restaurant. I am really sorry about the doggy box. I will talk to the bussers and servers, I'm not sure what happened? I've been known to run to save someone's leftovers and box them up. Sorry I wasn't there to do that for you!

This was our first time to visit. We were very pleased. The food was delicious and loved the atmosphere. Our only complaint is we had a new waitress and I’m not sure we would have ever received our food except the owner was on top of things and made sure we were taken care of. We will definitely go back!

Really disappointed with our last visit, my husband couldn’t get a drink without a fruit fly in it. Our server was not on her game, it took 30min to bring me a drink menu, she remembered after our main meal arrived and was half gone. We have been to this restaurant multiple times and this time took the cake. The best part was the gentleman who played the guitar, he was sooooo good.

We had a very disappointing dinner: it took so long, we had to leave before our desserts came out (we allowed 2 hours to dine pre-show).

Do not order steak at this restaurant- it came out completely charred and very dry. The fish looked good, though. I was looking forward to taking friends there, but I will not be back-- I had to apologize for selecting this restaurant and will not be going back.

Best food in Northern Mi. This was our second time in and it was as good as the first. This place should have a line around the door. Incredible salads (watermelon,chèvre and balsamic) was a 10. I had the whitefish and my wife had the chicken, both were fantastic. Can’t wait to go back this Friday. The guitarist was also a big plus. Nathan from Blind Melon does an acoustic set and shows his chops off Thursdays thru Saturday. Can’t rave enough about this place.

The food was outstanding!
Service was a little slow.
While the place has a lot of history, things are looking a little shoddy - whoever painted the ceiling got paint all over the trim everywhere - it's a small detail, but I expected to be more impressed with such a historical building.
We came pretty early in the evening so it was pretty quiet.
We were very impressed with the quality of the food and portion size and left well satisfied.

The 1911 Restaurant at the Terrace Inn in Petoskey is a charming setting for dinner. A small but very good menu awaits - quality over quantity. The food is exquisitely prepared and presented, especially the planked whitefish. Service is very attentive and personal. Great wine selection. A hidden gem located off the beaten path in the Bayview Association neighborhood. Well worth the stop for a date, anniversary or as a group! We were there with friends for a ski weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance and food. Definitely coming back.
