We stayed at the inn for a weekend getaway. Rooms are small, but nice. The staff is very friendly. We decided to have dinner there one night and it was outstanding. We went with the old school-classics, blue cheese wedge salad, bacon wrapped filet, and creme brûlée. I had the house salad, planked whitefish, and chocolate tort. Yes, they are... More

Had dinner and spent the night. What a perfect relaxing night! Food was amazing. They had a bar so after dinner, drinks by the roaring wood fireplace (no glass enclosed fireplace here). One of the most relaxing nights I have experienced ( this is in the winter of course). Very cozy and a step back in time. Owners are super... More

Came up Petoskey from Bay City to treat my sister and her husband to dinner and told her to pick a place. Little did I know that she would pick a place that was one of the first places my wife and I ate as a married couple. Wonderful memories of this place and the food didn't disappoint. I had... More

We were staying at the inn, so breakfast was included. We decided to eat dinner there, as well. For dinner, we got pizza - it was pretty good! Our server was great, too, and the view was just wonderful from the porch. The breakfast buffet the next morning was quite tasty, as well. They had a great selection, and we... More

1911 Restaurant is located in the Terrace Inn, which is near the Bay View Association -- a group of gingerbread homes that are connected to a church community, for which there are a couple of dozen similar communities throughout the U.S., including Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard. It makes for a very interesting drive as you take in these attractive... More

My friend and I were seated outside on the large porch, which overlooked some of the beautiful homes in Bay View as well as partial views of Lake Michigan. Our server, Adina, couldn't have been more friendly and attentive. The perch was fresh tasting, plentiful and the bread delicious. The chocolate torte was one of the best desserts that I... More

A wonderful restaurant with views of the lake. Food was excellent. A good restaurant for special occasions or just in general. Prices are a bit high but for a resort area, not uncommon. Would not recommend bringing small children.

Lovely place, the history is awesome, the waiter was outstanding. No reservation, went on pizza night and they were able to seat us inside with no problems. Would definitely return just for the place itself!
