This is one of those great small up north speciality places that put out a great product in an unassuming manner. The owner works hard and it shows in her pies. I love the area and love to spend my money at these types of places. I'm waiting for the apple pies as while the cherry pie is good, I'm an apple type of guy. The cookies are good, and I had a carrot cake that was okay but not fantastic.
I'm not a pie lover, but I went there with some friends and it was literally the best cherry crumb pie I've ever had. Yummy!
In reference to Larry review on February 2012. The House of Pies was not open for business during February 2012. Also, that was when we were in full battle against Epithiloid Sarcoma Cancer with my daughter, spending our time at UofMi cancer center. Sadly, on February 4, 2014 we lost our beloved daughter. Should you stop in again, when we are actual open, please introduce yourself. Thank you.

Best breakfast north of the 45th! Original recipes by Paulie...best sausage gravy anywhere. They have your basic breakfast fare just done better than you've ever had. Highly recommend the pancake...it's the only place I order pancakes because I'm usually not a fan...I like the blueberry pecan ones. The southern omelette is delicious. I would suggest adding a side of sausage gravy with it. Very reasonably priced.
We decided to try the Depot out based on the Yelp reviews. Glad we did! My wife and I got there late morning on a Friday, so it wasn't too busy. The inside looks like a converted train depot and has that 'old, antique' thing going on, with train-related decorations around. Nice enough and not too fancy, which is just fine with me. I saw they offer house-made corned beef hash on Friday, Saturday and Sunday so I, a lover of corned beef, went for that. My wife got the pancakes with the house-made raspberry sauce. The wait wasn't too long and our food was pretty good. I could tell the corned beef was the real thing, a definite plus. All I could wish was that the seasoning on it was a bit lighter. My wife really loved her food, saying the pancakes were the best she's ever had. That's high praise coming from her. Only negative was our waitress, though nice when dealing with us, didn't check on us. See, my wife has a test for how good the waitress is; if she keeps the drinks filled then she's good and, if we have to ask for refills, then she's not so good. This time our waitress scored kinda low. We're looking forward to having dinner here sometime soon.
Best restaurant between The Big Chicken, aka the Levering Cafe, and Petosky. The DLB is overrated and expensive, which demotes them. Dam Site is mediocre (and also expensive), and the folks who took over Bob's are understaffed and make weak food, as a table of ten confirmed in July. Nothing at the table was good. The Depot, however, puts out délicious and hearty food, is extremely reasonable, has nightly specials like prime rib, fish fry, and of course their enormous breakfasts. It's a solid place and the anchor on that whole stretch of the highway.

My wife and I were pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. I had heard of it for years, and passed it every time I went to Petoskey, but never thought to stop until one winter night. We tried out some of the lobster and shrimp appetizers, the wine, the pasta, the steak -- we enjoyed our meal very much. The food had standard American-cuisine flavors. The decor was very relaxed and clean, with a hint of a rustic feel to it. The service was also pretty good. The cost, given all of these factors, was reasonably affordable. They also have a lounge, which seemed lively yet relaxed. The lounge, I believe, is the only area of the restaurant where they permit smoking. This is a decent place to go for two, in a group, or with a family. There is something on their menu for everyone.
The Michigan White Fish was absolutely fantastic. Their fresh vegetables were flavorful and cooked to perfection. Wonderful service & very kind staff. The restaurant was incredibly crowded, which goes to show how popular this restaurant is. I highly recommend coming this gem.
Service was wonderful. Cute rustic charm with a fireplace. I've come in here several times and just wasn't impressed all that much. Although their seafood chowder is to die for! I had the fried shrimp this last time and it was good. The rice pilaf tasted like it came from a box. The fresh vegetable was steamed broccoli. No butter no seasoning. Don't get the scallops with pasta. They had zero flavor. Nix, nada. I'm sure they were frozen and seemed to be water-logged. The cook needs a few more lessons. The owner should sample more of his meals.
