Almost Excellent

We were just traveling home from the east cost in our RV and needed a place to eat close to our camp site. We read several complimentary reviews for Red Gables; so, we tried it...just walked in on a Saturday evening. When we pulled into the parking lot, we were a little apprehensive; outside... read more

We were greeted by the chief/owner Jamie at the door. He is Jack Nicholson kind of cool character, who immediately conveyed an aire of complete confidence in a fine dining establishment located in the bowels of Sandusky, Ohio. An establishment that in some sense is right out of a movie set from the 70's. It felt like an old home... More

Unbelievably delicious food. I live in Philly and have yet to experience a culinary experience that is comparable to this restaurant. Worth every penny and believe me, we felt we got a bargain as the food was every bit "five star". Sandusky! You are so lucky to have Jaime in the kitchen at the Red Gables.

We came along this place after visiting Cedar Point, and what a Joy it was. It's a little small, But makes up for it in Quality of food and Great people. We arrived late, and they joyfully stayed well after closing time to accommodate us. Everything we ordered was exceptional. We were delighted by the staff (We assumed the owners).... More

My wife and I met some friends for dinner here recently. All of the food ordered was excellent. I felt the prices were a little high, but it's probably the best steak place around

My friend and I had a very nice dinner here this past Wednesday. Service was a bit slow, but probably due to the fact that I only saw 1 server. She was quite knowledgeable of the menu and very gracious. Our dinner was delicious. We will definitely return. Thanks!

We visited this restaurant with friends and we were underwhelmed with the atmosphere, wait time, and the food. It was 50 minutes from the time of placing our order until we were even served our salads. I was expecting something spectacular from the other reviews so I must have set myself up for disappointment. The food was fine, but nothing... More

My mother and I arrived in Sandusky, OH on a business trip. We were looking for a steak and seafood restaurant to celebrate my 21st birthday. We came across Red Gable from a Google search and decided to give it a try. When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised. The elegance of the white tabletops, with roses garnishing each table...
