The spaghetti sauce is still amazing as I remember! Meatballs huge and good! Italian dressing is a fav. Didn't have perch or chopped sirloin but they looked good. They need to go back to making pizzas the original way. It was my favorite all my life. It's nothing fancy for sure but my family still LOVES IT!!!

This is my favorite spaghetti sauce of all time. Love their celery seed dressing too. My son had the perch dinner and loved it. Running a sweeper on the rug once in awhile would be an added plus. Will eat here every time I am in Port Clinton!!

Great homemade sauce that really makes the pasta dishes shine. Though on the sweet side, their sauce is very unique. They also make their own pasta and several of their salad dressings. It does however need a major facelift and remodeling on the inside. Too dark, too old looking.

To start off with, the hostess brought us to a dirty table. Then once we opened up the menus, the selection was very limited. There was one salad option aside from the regular side salad. And speaking of salad, very poor quality, all ice berg lettuce. So if you want a healthier option or are on a diet don't come... More

Its a small place with a mall parking lot with an even smaller menu - but what it lacks in size it makes up quality of food and service. The lasagna was excellent and a fair portion. Though I liked the sauce (I can assure you, its nothing like what you'd find at Olive Garden or other places), it might... More

We went there quite late, just after 8pm. The food was really not great, with most dishes smothered in the House sauce that tasted of not a lot. They started vacuuming the restaurant whilst we we still eating and making pointed comments about how late it was. The choice of beer was not very good and the wine was similarly... More

I think you either love the food or hate it-and we were definitely not in the love it category. The sauce that drowned everything on my plate was sort of sweet & not very good. It tasted canned. I had to find the bland ravioli under all the sauce. My mother's plate of lasagna & spaghetti was also drowning in... More
