Had lunch here with 3 other friends. We had the turkey club, chicken sandwich special, breakfast special and chicken Shawarma, they were good, but wished it wouldn't take an hour to have lunch. Just to long

Our food was very good, and the view was great. However, we did feel that the food and drinks were a bit overpriced. And the amount of food, at that price, was wanting. Not sure I would return.

Excellent meal with very little wait, but a reservation is highly recommended. We got a reservation for the Twisted Olive on Saturday night for 8 p.m. based on a recommendation by our hotel’s front desk person. We also noticed in Trip Advisor that reservations were highly recommended since it is a house converted into a restaurant and there is minimal... More

Wonderful, inventive meals. The chef prepared the meals in view of the dining area. Server was personable and very eager to prepare our meals as requested. Wine list good and some bottles were very well-priced. Great view of the lake for the windows facing Little Traverse Bay.

Our hotel recommended that we try out this small converted home for a relaxed dinner in Petoskey. We could not have been more delighted. The restaurant sits on the edge of the historic (and quaint) business district in Petoskey, from the main dining room you have a great view down to the water of Little Traverse Bay and a bustling...

During our visit to Petrowski we had a excellent brunch here on Saturday morning. We liked it so much that we made dinner reservations for Sunday evening. It does have beautiful vistas of the lake in the area nearby. The food was excellent as well as the service. During the evening and she had a live music with the jazzy... More

Love this place, excellent food. This is a very intimate restaurant with great views. We had 2 excellent lunches here. The soup was fabulous. All of the bread is home made (although I am gluten sensitive and didn't have any). They have lots of gluten sensitive choices and will modify dishes with gluten. Can't wait to go again next year!
