I had a group of six friends booked at ZInc on a Friday night for a late dinner. We were staying at Sandusky Yacht Club for the weekend and had heard great things about Zinc. We called and were able to get reservations for 8:00. We arrived early and headed to the bar to drink some wine. I was very... More

The food, service and atmosphere are top notch! I think you will have a hard time remembering that you are in downtown Sandusky Ohio. Caesar the owner and chef at ZInc has created an amazing 5 star restaurant that never disappoints. You will not be sorry that you picked Zinc for your dinner destination!!

It was getting late and my husband,granddaughter and I were in town to go to Cedar Point the next day. A friend told us about a great fish restaurant but by the time we got there they had closed. I pulled up Trip Advisor on my phone and found a place just around the corner from where we had parked... More

I went to this place with friends and it was a great find. We all had pizza and some of us had salads as well. We were all pretty happy with the food and we had a great server. I'd go back.

We ate here prior to going to the Sandusky State Theater. At first we were a little leary, we only had an hour before show time and the wait staff seemed sluggish. Once we told the waitress we were on a schedule, the rest of the meal moved quickly. We had the French Martini - absolutely tasty!, the Lobster Bisque,... More

We ate at the zinc a couple of times and the food is always really good. The steaks are great but the brick oven pizza is the best. We actually like to eat in The Hearth side of the restraurants. Really limited menu though but if you want a nice house salad and pizza its the best.

We were so lucky to find this wonderful bistro through TripAdvisor. Excellent food, service and wine/beer list. The Steak Tartare was the best I have had in the USA - I always use this dish as my litmus test for French Restaurants. My wife's Prosciutto wrapped Trout was delicious. Thoroughly well worth the diversion to this excellent establishment.

One of the few restaurants in northern Ohio that is worthy of a 4 star rating (out of 5). Excellent food and wine selection along with a nice atmosphere. Would recommend making reservations.
