I had the shepherds pie which was tasty and a great chocolate desert. Good selection of beers to wash it down. Service was also friendly and efficient.

I ordered the Boxty Beef Stew and it was delish! Definitely try to check it out if you've never tried a Boxty. My husband tried the fish and chips which was good as well. I tried the famous Guinness beer and it was smooooth.

This place was good had a really great server was just personable and gave us some good info about the area. The food was just ok it was good but nothing impressive. The desert on the other hand was awesome. Bailys Cheese cake. I'll go back again for the cake.

Amazing food (try the Perch Wrap and the chicken wings)! Fantastic selection of beer on draft with reasonable prices. Excellent staff (ask for Ariel--she was helpful, friendly, down-to-earth, and just a great bartender). This is a perfect place for some afternoon/evening drinks, for dinner, and for meeting some of the locals.

We stopped here on Friday evening. We just seen it, and decided to stop. It was great. Hubby had prime rib, an end cut, that he asked for. I had mussels Ina wine sauce, and we split a small salad, that was more then enough for two. They have a sweet onion salad dressing to die for.

We stumbled upon this restaurant by accident and loved it! The food was great, the service was excellent, and we all enjoyed ourselves. We were there on a Saturday night, and although they were busy, our server was great. If we lived in the area, we'd go there very often!

I had a great toastie with chips and he had the Beef Stew Boxy. His complaint on the food was there was too much too eat! Mine was typical-toastie is basically a... More

Stopped for dinner on Thursday 10 July with 5 friends. One friend and I ordered the Walleye basket – his with homemade potato chips and mine with fries. My friend eats a fair amount of Walleye as that was the quarry for this particular visit to Port Clinton. He said this was the best Walleye he had eaten, and I... More
