Normally when we are in Petoskey and Charlevoix we go to Whitecaps, which we did one night, and we wanted to try something different for the second night that we were in the area. We went on Yelp and found that Terry's had some great reviews and that they wer only open from 5-9pm nightly which was strange to us however we decided to take a chance and go. The restaurant was small and neatly decorated. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu, the owners and made us feel comfortable as newcomers. She gave us the whole rundown of the menu in a brief amount of time and we were more than pleased with her suggestions. The crabcakes were light and delicious, mixed green salad with house made ranch dressing was fresh and flavorful. The whitefish with green beens and sweet potatoes was to die for. All in all we had a great first experience and we now have a favorite go to spot while in the area.

terry's is probably the best place for fish Up North. The menu has not changed at all we understand sine the restaurant opened over 30 years ago. I had the Walleye Grenoboise as did my wife. Both of the people we were with had the Perch. The salads were fresh and crisp and the hash browns were cooked perfectly. Don't miss the 'Goldbrick' dessert- a chocolate, nut and vanilla ice cream decadent treat. The servers have been working there many years and have the system or taking orders, working with the kitchen on what to do when and delivering the food quickly. The teamwork and positive attitudes of the employees can be felt throughout the restaurant. Arrive early- say no later than 5:45 weeknight or weekend or you will wait for at least 30 minutes or longer and lots of people do. The restaurant has some nice paintings inside but no view other than a parking lot and street.

My sister and I arrived before 5 when there was hardly anyone there. By the time we left, the place was just about packed. The service was good, employees ensuring our drinks were replenished and inquiring if anything was needed. The warm rolls and home-made salsa were above average. I had their "special" of the day (roast pork) that was very good - more than enough. Good choice.

Favorite restaurant in Charlevoix, preparation of food wonderful. Staff is friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu. It quiet and you can actually hear your dinner companions something I find lacking in many restaurants.

The quality of food was good, the service was nice, but the fact that the food comes out of the same kitchen as the Pub and Great Lakes seems strange to me. I feel like I can get the same whitefish for a quarter of the price next door and it's just as good. Maybe it isn't served with quite the same panache, or a white linen table cloth, but?
