Stopped in for lunch. Had a perch sandwich and chips. The perch was so good we knew it would be even better without the bread and tarter sauce. The next morning we had fried perch, eggs, a grilled blueberry muffin (yum) and toast. It was delicious! Loved the coffee and good service. We'll be back for sure! Walt and Vivian

Got to the diner just before 9 am and everybody else showed up. 15 minutes after we placed our order (house special) 2 eggs, sausage, bacon or ham, toast and great home fries the place was full. The three strips of bacon were just right, not to crisp and not to limp. With coffee the bill for the two of... More

Breakfast is not rocket science, but it's the most important meal of the day. This is a classic Midwest small-town diner, nothing more, nothing less, serving diner breakfast staples. Service was friendly and quick, and the food was good, especially the sausage. If I lived in Port Clinton, I'd be a regular.

I live in Port Clinton and my cousin comes to town several times a year to visit. We all eat breakfast here every morning during his stay. It has been mentioned in previous comments that they do not accept credit cards, that changed a few months ago. They now accept credit cards which makes dining there even more enjoyable.

If you are looking for a really good, friendly place to have breakfast look no further! My husband and I were looking to have a really good breakfast and this place was recommended by the staff at the Island House Motel. So happy we took them up on their recommendation as everything we ordered was freshly prepared, came out piping... More

If you're looking for an affordable and tasty meal in a local diner, this is the place. Not fancy, but honest and good diner fare. Obviously, a local favorite and for good reason. We had a very nice breakfast (pancakes) and were very satisfied with the service and food quality.
