Located half way between downtown Petoskey & Harbor Springs, Vernales Restaurant opened in 2014 and since has been recognized as the #1 Steakhouse in Michigan, a Top 50 Steakhouse in the Nation, and has held down many years of consecutive Wine Spectator Awards.

With three separate dining rooms and two outdoor patios (available in the warmer months), we definitely offer something for everyone!  Vernales is much more than a steakhouse, as we offer a wide-ranging menu of seafood, pasta and casual fare.

Our most popular area, the Sports Bar, has table seating, as well as over 20 bar stools to enjoy sporting events on the abundant HD flatscreens spread throughout the room.  The perfect spot to enjoy a quick bite or have a relaxing meal.

The Wine Cellar offers a smaller, more cozy intimate dining experience with a fireplace feature, 6 seat bar and a temperature-controlled wine room.

Our Chophouse flanks the North side of the building, adding an upscale yet casual dining atmosphere.  You can enjoy an anniversary dinner for two or a big night out with twenty of your closest friends!  The Chophouse is the ultimate destination for celebrations of all kinds.

All dining rooms serve the same, extensive menu, so stop in and choose the atmosphere that suits your evening and enjoy!

When dining with us , don’t just stop with the food – be sure to check out our award winning wine list, as well as one of our craft cocktails to enhance your dining experience.


We hope to see you soon!
