Good, but expensive

We enjoyed our meal, but it was expensive. The atmosphere was nice... overlooking the lake. We were able to walk there from our hotel. Also, the winery is on the same property, so after dinner we walked down to the outdoor area overlooking the lake and had a glass of wine. It is a beautiful view.

Food was so good and the wine was excellent! My friend and I did the wine tasting and tasted quite a few wines before deciding on the Peach wine. We stayed at The Lakehouse Inn and ate at the Grille most of the weekend. So nice. Everyone was so nice with the exception of one server we had at breakfast... More

Dear Tiffany, I am so happy that you loved our Peach Wine – and your meals too! We love meeting people who love our food – I firmly believe that it is because it is as fresh as we can make it! With some of our farmers not too far down the road, it can’t get much fresher! I’m glad... More

Our dining experience at Crosswinds was one of our best ever. We sat at the bar and service was outstanding. Not only were the cocktails perfect, but the 6 oz filet of the evening was cooked to perfection and exactly how we requested. Served with purple smashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts, it was mouth watering and delicious. We also enjoyed... More

Great food ... I had the burger and it was great; my wife had soup and salad and she liked it very much; and my daughter had a sirloin steak which was cooked perfectly. The only reason I didn't give it five stars was how loud it was with everyone talking; not an intimate setting. Great view of Lake Erie.

The stars of the menu are grass-fed beef and pastured pork and lamb. They're all raised sustainably within just a county or three of Crosswinds Grille. Local enough for you? There's more. Veggies and greens raised by a handful of family farmers support the entrees and nearby creameries add the flavors of ice cream and a dozen or more artisanal... More

Best sausage I've ever had. Not from the box with additives! Eggs were so fresh, and they'll cook them anyway you prefer. Also, unbelievably delicious grass fed burger...a rare find. Nice atmosphere.

We had dinner here and could not believe how good it was. We had shrimp and grits as an appetizer and it was wonderful. I had seafood and my wife had pork chops. Both were excellent. Shared a bottle of Cabernet which was also very good. Can't speak for everything on the menu but our meal was great!
