Petoskey >Papa Lou's Pizza Pub and Grill
Excellent restaurant. We had burgers and a quesadilla, the burger was juicy and very flavorful, bacon cooked to a crisp, the quesadilla was loaded with chicken, very good!! We will be going back
this place down town petoskey has the best and may i say weird pizzas ever. My kids come home from college and we head here to get there bazzare pizzas..cheeseburger pizza, steak and cheese...and list cont
We came to Petoskey for a mini vacation and stopped here to eat. We had one of the BEST pizza's I've ever had!! The all meat pizza was fantastic!! Just the right amount of sauce and the crust was super good!! We went on a Tuesday night so it was kinda slow when we first got there. They have music playing which is 80's hair bands and it wasn't so bad. By the time we left the place was almost full. This is a must stop if you are in the area and want some pizza!!
Nice seating arrangements. Excellent food. Great prices. Great service. Planing a return visit soon.
My mom and I were spending the weekend
in Petoskey and we came to Papa Lou's twice. The first time we sat at the bar because we didn't want a full meal. My mom had a salad and a glass of wine, I had a beer (yummy Founder's Scotch Ale on tap recommended by the bartender) and a french onion soup in a homemade bread bowl (I think they use the pizza dough- genius!) We were very satisfied with the atmosphere, the food and the prices.
The next day we came back after a day of cross-country skiing. We were starving and we sat down at a table. We each had a glass of wine. Mom had a glass of cab, and I had tried a local wine (a red blend). The server asked if I liked it and I was honest and I said that it was a bit sweeter than I like, but that was okay. She immediately offered to get me something else instead and replaced it even though I wouldn't have asked her to do that. It was very nice of her and I appreciate the fact that she cared about us and wanted me to have something that I would thoroughly enjoy. So I ended up with a glass of cab myself which was great.
Mom and I both had burgers. They were gigantic, juicy, and delicious. I forget what my mother had on her burger, but I had some wonderful blue cheese topped creation with onion rings on the side. It was awesome! I saw some beautiful pizzas go by on their way to neighboring tables and one day I will make it back to Petoskey and try one myself. I have a lot of confidence in Papa Lou's and their ability to make food that I like.
*One last thing- they had a great patio in the back. We were there while it was getting dark and it was snowing, so we couldn't enjoy it, but I can only imagine that it's amazing in the summer.
They have bar swings. Swings. At the bar.
I am surprised by some of the reviews on here my wife and I considered Papa Lou's the hidden gem of our trip to Petoskey. We went at around five o'clock on a Saturday to avoid the crowd and our service was great. The tables were kind of close together but that fact allowed us to witness our servers excellent customer service skills with the "clueless" people at the table next to us. She was practically bending over backwards to meet every demand they had. The mozzarella appetizer was very good and the Chicken Toma pizza we had was awesome both fresh and as leftovers. This will definitely be a place we go back to when we visit Petoskey again.
Several Urbansponers have dissed this restaurant with a focus on snotty service. We didn't experience any of this. Dropped in for pizza between Christmas and New Years. The pizza was very good. So was the beer. The service was good, quick, attentive ( and they were busy). To the dissers, try again or grow up
Nice place. Cold beer. The Olive Burger is excellent. Almost as good as the Around the Corner pub in Mercer, WI. Pizza is very good as well. Family crowd
Best home made food EVER outside of home
