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

The place was very charming and the staff very knowledgeable and attentive, and we had THE BEST steak we've ever had!... More

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...
