Excellent food and very reasonably priced. There is something on the menu for everyone and it is all reasonably priced. Save room for the pie - I regret not trying any because I was too full!

I loved the restaurant, it was a great atmosphere and the food was great! I got the berardi salad and the Italian grilled cheese and it was wonderful. The salad had mandarin oranges, nuts, strawberries, cranberries and feta cheese.

The service is always excellent at Berardi's. My family always eats here when we are in towing visiting my grandma. They are great at accommodating large groups. The food is good too. The fries are the best! If you go here, you must get fries.

Fair price for good food. Our group had 2 - two year old, one 5 year old and a pre-teen. Our waitress was great with these young ones and gained our respect when she hurried from us to take care of some regular customers who had an autistic boy who was getting agitated. We have someone in our family who... More

Great things never change. Since childhood and my first job at Cedar Point over forty-five years we traveled home to my birthplace, Sandusky, Ohio. Married in 1978, the same year Berardi's left Cedar Point, I have longed for those delicious fry's seemingly forever. We were in Mansfield for a family reunion and had to take the drive north to go... More

Wish I would have went here the first morning I was in Sandusky. This place is very clean, the staff is fabulous. The breakfast was great! I had a omelet and it was really good! The service was outstanding. I would highly recommend.

If you're visiting Cedar Point, there's no reason to settle for only what the park has to offer. We were so pleased by our first night's meals (Stirfy; Ultimate BLT; Chicken Tenders; Roast beef and gravy sandwich) and the POTATO KNOEPFLE soup that we had to go back a second night for more SOUP and sandwiches. Wish we had one... More

This is a great restaurant. We ate here twice and our meals were wonderful both times. Staff is very friendly and prices are good. We had both breakfast and lunch, excellent food, not greasy great flavor.

This restaurant continues to please with a huge menu! Guests can have breakfast any time of day, and the portions are large.. Don't miss the french fries, they are amazing, and much better than the ones now served at Cedar Point! My only criticism is that the food service took a unusually long time. Though, I must admit that I... More

I went hunting for this restaurant while my kids were in the park. Big regret as I could have gone to the restaurants closer to my hotel. I went to this place due to Midwest Magazine recommendation but utterly disappointed. My haddock was coated in bread. Supposed to be an Italian restaurant but not a whole of Italian in the... More

Jason R, Social Media Manager at Berardi's Family Kitchen, responded to this review

I am sorry to hear that your experience was less than enjoyable. The cod that you ordered is is hand battered, so sometimes it can get more breading than needed on them. Did you by chance notify the manager on shift about this, or even possibly your server? More
