Beautiful, historic setting and the food was amazing. I will definitely be back to this gem.
Wife’s birthday. Had a wonderful time as always. Food and staff are the best!
We were there on pizza night I would not recommend the pizza the place was awesome service was good don’t get the pizza
Excellent food and service. Highly recommend!
We were celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary
Best meal of our vacation week. I'd highly recommend
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.
The food is outstanding. Love the White fish which this restaurant is famous for. Terrace seating is the best.
My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful meal on the porch - perfect!
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.
Everything was wonderful, from service to food & drink. Beautiful views. Charming 😊
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves Tuesday night at 1911 Restaurant. Food was prepared perfectly. The staff couldn’t have been more friendly yet, professional. Will definitely be back
Friends moved here 4 years Ago and we had never eaten there. 8 of us! Wonderful experience and best whitefish dinner ever. Too bad our doggy box disappeared
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!
We had a lovely experience. The food and service were great
Thank you, Laura. So happy you had a great experience! We appreciate your business and your feedback!
Lovely setting. Food was superb! The planked whitefish is awesome. We eat out a lot and know a good meal when we have one!
Hi Linda...Thank you for dining with us and for the nice review! We are so happy you enjoyed your planked whitefish and the atmosphere! Not sure if you live in the area but check out our facebook page for updates on our hours after Labor Day!
We went for pizza night and pizzas were delicious. Beautiful old hotel. Wouldn’t hesitate to return.
We had a wonderful experience! Our server was amazing! I can’t remember her name but she had awesome glasses :) she took such wonderful care for us and even made me a sangria when they don’t even have them there. She was so confident. The food was amazing! We are so happy we spent our anniversary dinner here!
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.
Love everything about it...dining on the porch or inside takes one back to elegant dining of yesteryear.
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.
Like a Norman Rockwell scene... dined outside on the terrace. Great food , service and live music!
Food was excellent with good size portions, we had the walleye which was enough for 2 people. we sat outside and the setting is very relaxing.
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.
Thank you so much! We so appreciate you and your willingness to share ..as you know this place is off the beaten track and with so much competition it isn't easy going...so kind of you! I'll pass it on because the staff needs to hear this!
Food was outstanding, our server, Jennifer was personable and attentive. Ambiance was fabulous. Will definitely be returning!
A hidden gem in Petoskey!
Jennifer will be so happy to hear this..she is a real sweetheart..truly loves people and caring and making your experience the best. Great mom too and great teacher!..Her son's an eagle scout if that tells you anything!
A1 Top Notch Food. This is my new go to place up north.
Very beautiful and food was excellent
Three of us ladies had an outstanding dinner on the terrace of Terrace Inn. The food was excellent, the service was top notch, and the setting couldn’t be prettier. We look forward to several more evenings this summer there.
The dinning room was beautiful, service and food wonderful. I just wish we had shared a meal. Portions were large. The “three for” meal plan was great but next time we will share one meal.
Love this place. It is always good and we just love the historic aspects of the hotel in Bay View.
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.
Great food, environment, and all around wonderful experience. Will definitely be back.
We loved it all!!It was a perfect place for a romantic Valentine's Day!
Loved everything about our Valentines dinner. Thank you so much
Great valentines meal. We love this place.
Very quaint setting, friendly staff, delicious food.
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.
Thank you so much for your nice review! We appreciate your time and your business and truly enjoyed hosting your and your friends! So thankful that you shared your experience!
