Side Door Saloon Petoskey review, pics, hours, and menu info. The Side Door Saloon Petoskey is located off US-31 next to Pirates Cove putt putt and near the corner of M-119 and US-31.

The Side Door Saloon is known for its olive burgers and boasts that it has the “world famous olive burger” on the menu. The Side Door Saloon menu also has entrees like steak and fish, salads, Mexican dishes, sandwiches, and more. There is a full bar with house favorites and Moscow Mules, great selection of wines and beer.

Every dish served looked great but we couldn’t pass up the burgers. We ordered the burgers with the olive mayo. The burgers are cooked perfectly and the olive mayo is the bomb. Any burger that is offered with bacon is served with Plath’s bacon which is the best local bacon available from Plath’s meat market. You can’t go wrong with this menu.

However, even with all that said, there’s one big con at the Side Door Saloon… they have no fryer in the kitchen, so they don’t serve any fried foods. To put it simply, it’s impossible to order French fries with your burger. It will be served with a side of chips. This was a little tough to swallow…we literally went to a nearby bar after and ordered a plate a fries while the taste of burgers was still fresh in our mouths. I know that sounds odd, but for me the two go together like peanut butter and jelly.

The Side Door Saloon gets pretty busy on a weekend night. But, the staff can still manage to provide excellent service (totally the direct opposite of El Ranchero). I was honestly impressed.

The prices at the Side Door Saloon are reasonable compared to what we find that we normally spend eating out lately. The restaurant also sells their pint logo glasses.

There is an outdoor patio with seating available for outdoor dining during the warm months. It is fully covered and lit up with Christmas lights inside.

The Side Door Saloon has been around for decades, but just changed into a restaurant nearly 20 years ago. It used to be just a bar.
