The specialty of the house is the plankfish from lake michigan. Out of the 12 people around us 10 took the plankfish (I took the rack of lamb). My wife enjoyed her fish and you get some discounts are available if you are seated before 6pm.

Not only the best meal I have had in a long time but the experience was made complete from the ambiance of dining on a beautiful porch by candlelight overlooking the homes in Bay View down to Little Traverse Bay. The food was simply delicious and the presentation was amazing. Our waitress was so gracious and her timing with each... More

Are you ready for planked whitefish? My wife and I have enjoyed planked whitefish at several different restaurants in northern Michigan over the years. We have now eaten the best! 1911 prepares the lightest, most flavorful whitefish with the most beautiful presentation that we have been served. It can be ordered prepared several different ways. I chose the blackened whitefish... More

Ate here on the porch before a Vespers Concert and it was pizza night. But they still had their special planked whitefish which was light and perfectly prepared. Also had the calzone with marinara sauce which was delicious. Definitely worth a return visit.

Although the menu seems limited, it is so VERY well done! So, if you have a great food, why spread yourself thin trying to make everything. I would highly recommend the filet, to-die-for! The service is always exceptional and friendly. You really need reservations most nights because this place gets busy. I would also recommend eating out on the terrace,... More

Stopped in for a drink and found the place to be very nice. The location by the water is nice and the staff was friendly. Did not eat but the food looked appealing.

We found this out-of-the-way restaurant secluded in the Bay View section of Petoskey - hard to find, but definitely worth the effort. We were celebrating the eve of our 50th wedding anniversary and what a wonder place to be. We dined on the terrace on a perfect evening with the sounds of a mellow acoustic guitar (live, of course).

Stayed at the Terrace inn for 3 nights, the owners opened the restaurant on a night they were originally closed just because guests asked. The whitefish was spectacular, couldn't have asked for a better night or staff!

The Terrace Inn is a beautiful place to eat as well as to stay (it is on our list for our next visit). We loved the attentive service and our meal was very good. The innkeepers personally came by to check on us and to chat about our trip. 1911 was a very friendly place.
