“Great food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

It's rated #2 on Trip Advisor, so we figured we would try it out. We were seated immediately even though we had no reservation. We practically had the best seats on the house (bay view). We ordered the flat bread appetizer, the walleye, and chicken (dinner menu). It was all amazing. Unless you absolutely want to see the bay from the dining room, I would probably recommend the outdoor seating. My wife was comfortable (she was sitting beside the ac vent) but I was sweating the entire time. It must have been 90 degrees or better where I was sitting. The price was a little high, but I guess that's the thing with these kind of places. We were in town for a week and visited once. We would have gone back to try the lunch menu if it was a little more affordable. We will definently return to try the lunch menu when we are in Petosky again.

“Amazing view and delicious food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

Watched the sun go down over the bay. Good service, friendly but not pushy. Enjoyed our meal and never felt rushed. The lollipop lamb was seasoned and cooked perfectly, great salads and sock eye salmon! Would recommend to anyone looking for a memorable night out!

“Incredible food and worth the price.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

I love the Twisted Olive. Excellent food and service. Outdoor seating for breakfast and lunch. Make your dinner reservations early. Don't be fooled by photo. In the summer the lake view is blocked by leafy trees. If you can't get into Twisted Olive for dinner try Chandlers.
