My husband and I were in sandusky celebrating our 14th wedding anniversary. We were in search of a great steak. We saw some great reviews for their steak so we decided to give it a try. The outside is not much to look at and the inside needed some updating, but we were welcomed by some wonderful people. We started... More

Two travellers from our group of six from Finland were lost and our very friendly hostess helped them by phone to find us to this great place to eat. We all were very satisfied for the food, service and friendly atmosphere.

I was staying across the street at the Knight's Inn and was hungry and exhausted from a long day's drive. I pulled into the parking lot, just planning to get something at the deli next door, but decided to try the Red Gables on an impulse. Wow! My steak salad was perfectly cooked and seasoned, with fresh baby greens and... More

One would never know what a gem of a restaurant this is , by just passing by. The outside needs some attention , as does the interior, but once seated and served, everything was fabulous! A+++ quality food and service.

What a wonderful find the Red Gables is! On the recommendation of a friend, we visited there for the first time last night. It ended up being one of the best meals we have ever had. It's not a place to visit if you need to get in and out quickly. But, if you are looking for a relaxing, enjoyable... More

Simply put, the Monte Cristo Filet was one of the most succulent, delicious meals my wife and I have ever eaten. We have been fortunate to dine at some fine steak restaurants throughout the country such as Shula's, Morton's, Ruth Chris', and Mike Fink's, not to mention other local steakhouses that are respected in their locales. The steak at the... More

Look hard on the way between Sandusky, Ohio and Huron, Ohio and you will find the Red Gables restaurant on the South side of Cleveland Road. We were greeted by a very kind hostess, Lori, who told us all about the food selection and attention to details that the chef provides. We also had the Chef (owner) himself come out... More

We dined during a very slow time. There was one other table eating and two others that came and left after seeing the menu. The service was very slow. It took about 20 min before our salads came out. I will say though that the salad was excellent and very fresh. The bread was also very delicious. I ordered the... More

My husband and I heard about this restaurant from a friend who lives in Sandusky and we thought we'd give it a try. Its out of the way and the restaurant is not marked well, but persistence pays off!!! The place was very charming and the staff very knowledgeable and attentive, and we had THE BEST steak we've ever had!... More
