Myself and seven others had dinner here as an alternative to the Kalahari resort where we were staying to see what Sandusky town was like. We picked this based on a tip from a barman in the Sandusky Mall and we weren't disappointed. There doesn't seem to be a lot of restaurants in Sandusky but I'd happily go back here... More

Excellent restaurant for that special occasion or just Saturday night out with your friends! Great selection of wines and liquors, appetizers, and deserts. Loved everything! Also our server was very nice and knowledgeable.

If I lived in the area this would be my number one go to restaurant for any occasion. When I am in town for the races at Summit Motorsports Park I never miss an opportunity for a dinner or two or three at Zinc. I have never been disappointed in the quality cuisine, wine menu and service. Two nights ago... More

This lovely restaurant is my favorite "go to" when in Sandusky. Service is top notch, and I have never ever had a bad meal. And if you ever have the opportunity, make a reservation for one of their wine dinners...always A-1. You cannot go wrong in choosing this place.

New place that moved from the old location. Nicely remodeled, but way over priced. Especially the drinks. OMG.

This is great restaurant very classy and the food is outstanding. It gets very busy so call for reservations. We enjoy sitting at the bar. The bar is well stocked and has a lot of great wines. All around amazing restaurant.

The décor of the restaurant in a renovated commercial building, and the view through the windows of the harbor is spectacular. It was an enjoyable atmosphere to accompany my dining. The most outstanding part of my well-prepared dinner was the lobster bisque (homard en crute), which was remarkable. I would return just for this dish, in addition to all the... More

I have visited Zinc every year for the past 4 years when I am in Sandusky with friends. This year, they are in a new, larger location, and service has really suffered! One of our party did not receive her meal until others were finished with theirs. It was not as described on the menu and had to be returned.... More

On our most recent visit we were there with two other couples and found the ambiance and decor to be extremely warm and inviting. It was the perfect place for our occasion. The wait staff was very friendly and the food was out of this world! The fact that we had a table of six for a late evening seating... More

You cannot beat Zinc for the freshest, local, seasonal entrees; everything done to perfection. Their selection of wines is the best, bar none. Since they moved to Water St. from their Columbus Ave. location, they have more room and a great view of Sanduky Bay. Don't miss it.
