Great Restaurant

The was a delicious restaurant. It's located in a beautiful building on the waterfront. They were all out of the vegetarian meal on the menu, but they were happy to accommodate! The desserts were also great!

This is a very classy restaurant. The menu is not too long and everything we tried was excellent. Unusually for this class of restaurant the portions were large and after the starters few managed to finish their main course. The waiters were very knowledgable about the menu as well as the exhaustive wine list. They certainly did not try and... More

Each and every time we return to Ohio to visit the family, Zinc Brasserie is one of the first stops we make. And we come back for a few times (in a matter of two weeks) before we have to leave. Food is creative, delicious and prepared with a lot of love. The owners and chef keep it interesting and... More

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
