Convenient place to eat after park

We went for dinner while visiting Cedar Point. It was good, not gourmet or anything. lol. Best part of the dinner was our server Antoinne, so nice and attentive and all smiles. One note the tables are all bar height, not easy to get up and down from those stools, so it traveling with elderly or... read more

Okay place. Food was average at best (although the fried pickles were really good). But bathroom pictures were inappropriate for kids.

The indoor waterpark was very small and not all slides were open. The bowling alley and lazer tag was good and we were glad to have the whole place near our hotel. If it had rained-it would have been a lifesaver.

We've driven by this place numerous times and never stopped in. We always assumed it was a total dive and a terrible place to take children. Boy were we wrong! It has something for everyone and then some. I was a really big fan of their pizza and everyone enjoyed their food. Plus they have an extensive drink menu in... More

Excellent food and ambiance, large menu! Walking distance from Breakers Express. Great way to unwind after a long drive and be able to walk back to hotel after having a few drinks. Outdoor bar area looked nice.

Awesome selection of good choices on their menu. Good prices to boot. Very nice and outgoing staff. The selection of bar drinks and souvenir cups and novelties were the bomb! So much fun. Atmosphere was upbeat and lively. We ate here just about everyday during our trip, no lie. Highly recommend and can't wait to go back next month!

Perfect palce to spend a rain delay when headed to Cedar Point. On our way to Cedar Point we stopped because we needed to wait for the rain to go away before we went to the park. Try the grilled wings and the lonley pony sauce. Best ever!

What a maroon! This place is hokie. Poor service from the moment we walked in the door. Our cocktails were terrible as was the food. We left hungry and went back to our campground wondering what we just wasted $50 on. We should have went to Berardi's Family Kitchen.

I say 3 stars and my boyfriend says 5 stars! Atmosphere was typical sports bar and what I expected. The service was really good and we had a really nice server. The location is great and right by Cedar Point. The food is where we differ. He had a wonderful fried walleye sandwich. It was fried right, put on a... More
