Nice lunch on the water

This was our favorite "on the water" place to eat lunch. The food is good, has a nice selection & the service was decent (for a touristy place).

Great food....great atmosphere.....great staff! If you enjoy waterfront dining then this is a fun place to hang out. We enjoy a meal while listening to music and then step outside for a few cocktails and gather around the fire pits!

Cleats was a great addition to the Marblehead/Catawba area. Large indoor bar and seating area along with a large outdoor patio make this a regular stop for those in the area. Cleats also has a good selection of musical entertainment both indoors and out depending on the time of year and the weather. You can check out who is playing... More

Very disappointed in quality of food. I ordered a buffalo chicken flatbread. There was less than an ounce or two of chicken cut up in small diced pieces. A little buffalo sauce and maybe three small pieces of banana peppers. No cheese,very little tomato sauce. All of this on what appeared to be unleavened bread. My wife did enjoy her... More

I am not reviewing the food quality here as we are from a different area of the U.S.A., so perhaps the food is great to most people here. Our complaint is with the appearance of absolute confusion at the check-in and seating desk. We arrived before the normal "rush time" for dinner on a weekday. We were told it would... More

Loved it! We were in the search for something in the area and just happened across this place. Wow, great food! Service was a tad slow but it was the middle of the day and didn't seem to have many folks working. Will come back here when in the area again.

We decided to have a late lunch on Fathers Day, June 21, 2015. The server was a delight and knew the menu well. The food was dry and tasteless. Some of the items were ok, just ok. We were a party of seven and three meals were considered good. We mentioned to our server about the dried out chicken and... More

We stopped on a Sunday afternoon and sat in the bar which was half full. Service was very prompt and friendly. We loved the variety of options on the menu. The make your own burger was very flavorful and came with a lot of delicious homemade chips. The Cobb salad was loaded with toppings.

If you want to find this restaurant with an in car navigation system, do NOT use Port Clinton as the city. It is located at 6801 East Harbor Road in Lakeside Marblehead, Ohio! My husband and I visited the restaurant on a Sunday evening. The bar (with all high top tables) was half full and had a very loud juke... More

Had to wait on a Sat evening 1/2 hour which isn't really bad. The restaurant was very noisy as people gathered for OSU game. Music we were told would be turned down once the game started but that didn't happen. Had a Rueben that was sliced very thin, meat was dry and the bread was soggy from so much sauerkraut.... More
