I would say this is probably one of the best restaurants in the Sandusky area. Loved the decor in a beautifully restored building downtown near the water. The meal was excellent in both presentation and taste!

First time to the relocated Zinc. More airy and brighter than the previous location that we visited a few times a year. You can rely om getting something that will be flavorful and delicious. They're always coming up with great tasting dishes

The new location for Zinc is very cool, the historical buildings in the area are being restored so well, leaving the charm of the old work under, as the design! Very well done! The unique menu has allot to offer for every taste. A nice mix of seafood, meats, pasta, salads, and of course desert, all specially prepared, and very... More

This is more of a review for the adjacent Hearth Tavern located within Zinc Brasserie. We have eaten here at least a dozen times in the past year since its opening. Each meal has been great. Delicious wood fired pizzas and a great selection of salads and appetizers that changes with the seasons. We especially love the bets and Brussels... More

We recently had a special family gathering -- 13 folks ranging in age from 4 to 80 -- that could not have gone better. The service was impeccable -- friendly, attentive, unobtrusive. We ordered off the menu, but seemed to present no challenge to the kitchen with the volume & variety. Everyone's meal arrived at once, in a timely manner,... More

I had hoped that their move would solve the noise problem, but you still can't have a nice conversation. Their other restaurants, outdoors on the lake and their wine bar with Tapas, are a better alternative to dine.

My family lives in Sandusky and my dad was the main one saying this place was AWESOME! I know he has the same taste buds as me so we decided to stop in for an early dinner on a Saturday. We were greeted by such an amazing staff that were just genuinely happy to be there. Our waitress was awesome... More

This was my first trip to the new location. It has a relaxed atmosphere and isn't the least bit pretentious. We were seated right away without reservations on a friday evening. The menu has a little bit of everything and you are sure to find something that suits your tastes. The wine list is very good with a great selection... More

Don't let the exterior fool you - this is a charming little spot in downtown Sandusky. If you want casual, the front of the restaurant is for you, but it is worth going back to the main dining room for an expansive menu and great food. We came in on a Monday night - fresh off the rides at Cedar... More

We sat an ate on the more casual side called The Hearth and it was still a very nice environment. The Zinc side was extremely pricey. We all got brick oven pizzas because that was about all you could get on that side. There was some interesting choices and the 3 we got were all very good. That is coming... More
