Description: City Park Grill, one of Petoskey’s oldest buildings, was originally constructed in 1875. McCarty Hall, as it was then known was a malesonly billiard parlor that offered cigars and “intoxicating beverages.” Today, City Park Grill maintains a loyal clientele with house-made cuisine, focusing on locally procured produce, meats and lake fish, an awardwinning wine collection and house-made biscuits straight from the oven

A favorite of Ernest Hemingway, this up north grill and bar is delightful.
The lunch menu differs greatly from the dinner menu.
The chef's specials this evening offered a wide selection of amazing entrees from fresh fish , beef to poultry and vegetarian. The atmosphere was alive with groups and the evening was complete with live entertainment .

This is a great restaurant with a long history in Petoskey. The Wine Guys group who own and run this establishment have blended good food with a fun atmosphere. It is located in the heart of Petoskey so whether your eating lunch or just bar hopping it's a mandatory stop.

This is just a great place to eat. There's something on the menu to please just about everyone. We've been here several times and it's always a favorite when we are in Petoskey.

Had dinner on a slow Sunday night. The food was wonderful, service was good and the setting very nice.

There is a wide variety on both the appetizer and entree list. My wife had the but-encrusted whitefish which was very nice. Generous portions and well presented. I had the flank steak. It was good but not great. The accompaniments were carrots (basically raw although supposedly cooked) and mashed potatoes. They were also not great. The main course was very good though.

I always like a wine list that has a lot of variety to it. This one qualifies. There is a great selection in almost any varietal you want and the price ranges are from "more than reasonable" to "are you kidding me."

Park Garden is definitely a downtown Petoskey hotspot. Especially for hungry, thirsty tourists. Because we're plant-based folks We have avoided this restaurant. We always had a hard time finding something that fits into our program. Well I'm here to tell you it's a new day. They now have a full selection of vegan friendly meals. BUT you must ask your waitperson. Our waitperson, Barb, is very knowledgable about vegan needs. She made some good suggestions and steered us away from items with un-vegan ingredients. We chose the vegan style bow tie pasta and it was marvelous. Welcome to Petoskey vegans, a spot to enjoy a good meal that's on target.
