Good food, nice view

I had the Sandusky Firehouse Burger and really liked it. The portion was a half pound and the flavors were really good. The view of the bay is a nice bonus. The waitress was very nice and good at refills for our large party. However, it took a while for our food to be ready. Overall, it is a nice... read more

We tried to get in here by calling on a Saturday afternoon. No go--won't take reservations. Told we have to show up in person--can't even call ahead. Then we get there, and the rude front desk person tells us snippily that it will be at least an hour and a half. Moreover, "lakefront" is a complete lie. It doesn't overlook... More

The food was excellent. The service good. The prices average. This is somewhere you should try and I am sure you will share my opinion and want to return.

It was recommended by a local business owner and I must say she was right. We had a view of the dock and our waitress was outstanding. We just had sandwiches but they were big and very tasty. We would gladly eat their again.

Its in a cool location and has a nice view of the lake. The food was good but we would have preferred more healthy options and less breaded/fried options. The staff was nice and we enjoyed our stay We did also enjoy the decor and the historical pictures that decorate the place Good happy hour options

Got tired of eating at the resorts over priced restaurants and went exploring in town. A beautiful building with good food. Server was extremely nice, wish I remembered her name. The portions were huge. I tried the perch and I could barley eat half of it. My wifes steak was a little too pink for her liking but they took... More

I have frequented this establishment several times, some were late night bar trips and a few others were with dates with my wife. I keep coming back because I like the bartenders, the atmosphere is nice (but that really is one of the last things I care about in a resturant) and the food is really good. They have average...

Downtown Sandusky, along the waterfron, happen by this place looking for a stop for lunch. I had a great Burger and the best home made chips. Prices were reasonable and drinks not bad either. Pleasant enviornment with a good vew, pleasant wait staff...all around one of the better places to hang out.
