My husband and I happened apon The Red Gables by chance one year while vacationing in Sandusky. The food was literally off the charts in freshness and taste. This year we made our way back to Sandusky, Ohio. Our hotel was farther away from The Red Gables then idea. My husband said it was too far, only to surprise the... More

My GF and I happened upon the restaurant about two years ago while staying at a local lodge. We enjoyed the place so much, that when we spent last weekend about 30 miles from there in Port Clinton we made it a point to go out of our way and drive the 30 miles to stop in again. The steak... More

Once a year we meet with friends in Sandusky - about half way between our two homes - and are always looking for nice restaurants. This is a lovely little restaurant with wonderfully attentive wait staff and the chef/owner came around twice to our table to make sure that everything was OK. That said, the food was good but not...

The food is fair at best but they charge a premium price. The atmosphere is mid 70's and dirty. With the prices they charge they could afford to redo the decor. Would NOT recommend.

We stopped in to Red Gables at 9:10 on Valentines Day. The place was hoppin and the hostess approached us asking if we had reservations. We said no and she checked with the boss who asked her to find us a table -- which she did. From the first bite of the fragrant bread to the last morsel of an... More

It is difficult to write anything bad because of the food and the attention given by the server/Chef (owner). The venue is small seating, about 50 people, but we happen to like this size and slightly larger. Slightly slow on delivery but we didn't come for fast food and received very good food. Don't recommend taking children at least not... More

We loved the History of Red Gables and couldn't resist stopping in to add it to our collection of memories. Pleasantly surprised by the wonderful cuisine. Great Spot to stop and soak up a bit of good old fashioned cooking and awesome folk tales!

Truly a hidden gem in Sandusky. We didn't discover it until we moved away and now it's one of our must stops when back home. The pork chops are the best I've ever eaten!

This restaurant was recommended to us by a jewelry store manager while we were on vacation at Lake Erie/Sandusky. My wife and I asked about a restaurant they would recommend and he said that they had outstanding steaks (better than Morton's he said). We made reservations and ate there the same night and really enjoyed our meal. We had a... More

We live in the area, and it seems there are so many mediocre chains. Last night we wanted to celebrate with a friend, so we went to Red Gables....a whole different dining experience for the area. The menu is diverse and quality. Only the best seafood and steaks. The owner, Jaimie, visits each table and personallly oversees all food preperation.... More
