Berardi's was a pleasant surprise! Our family of 5 ordered a variety of dishes from their famous Lake Erie perch sandwich to burgers to fresh salads, and everything was fabulous. They also have a wonderful selection of pies. They allowed us to purchase a whole pie to take with us to our family in Detroit, though usually they require ordering... More

Great service and good quality food. Enjoyed the egg white wrap. Grits and oatmeal were good. Just a good all around breakfast. It's like going home for breakfast.

I've been visiting Sandusky for years and Berardi's has always been there with consistent service and good home style food. They are know for their french fries and I always enjoy their Lake Erie perch dishes. They also have lots of tasty desserts. A fine place to eat!

Went for breakfast. Ordered pulled beef hash over home fries w/ 2 eggs & sourdough toast. Perfect! Waitress attentive even though she was pretty busy. Didn't have dessert but everything in the dessert case looked fabulous! Would definitely visit again when in area!

Some of the best perch sandwiches ever. Enjoyed blueberry muffins and an outstanding salad. Often a wait but definitely worth it!
