My favorite in Petoskey. I am in Petoskey solo quite often. I love CPG because I can sit at the bar and have dinner. Superb service by Kayla, Michelle, Mike and Robin!! You can not beat the relaxed atmosphere here.

Barbara is the best server we’ve had all weekend! So accommodating, very knowledgeable of the menu and such a fun personality! V wasn’t even our server but offered great beer suggestions. We’ll definitely be back if we’re ever in the area.

Came in for a romantic bromance. Joy at the door was extremely nice and helpful. Daniel the bartender was great and had an amazing beard.
