Highly recommend it. I have grown up on Berardi's. Nice hidden restaurant during the Cedar Point season to avoid busy Route 250.

Came here for breakfast prior to a big day at Cedar Point, based on great reviews on Trip Advisor. The restaurant's a little out of the way, but not too far from the park. The food was OK, standard family restaurant food. I had a veggie omelette. It tasted fine, but kind of generic. My wife had french toast, and... More

Not one thing was a disappointment! The most unique item was the sauerkraut balls, and I don't like sauerkraut on anything but a Bahama Mamas!!!

Our party of six had lunch at Berardi's Family Kitchen recently. My husband and my brother are fond of sauerkraut balls, a local specialty, so they split an order and gave them two thumbs up. Most of us ordered burgers, and they were very good. The menu offers many different kinds, from my Southwest burger (chipotle mayo, pepperjack cheese, jalapeños)... More

With 2 small picky children, this was a good place for us. They had many choices for the kids and a good variety for the adults from salads, sandwiches to full meals. Fries were fresh cut and very good. The waitress catered to the children and made them feel important too. The Cajun pasta was delicious as was the spaghetti.... More

Berardi's is a friendly, excellent place to eat. It is not "fancy", but it is very clean and comfortable. There's a great variety of food selections and I've eaten there many times and never been disappointed. The rates are reasonable and the portions ample.

I'll get it as a dinner salad with the real lake perch sandwich or hot roast beef sandwich or whatever catches my eye. The best old fashioned, hand cut french fries - add... More
