“Overpriced and rude”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

My wife and I recently ate at gateway and I wished we hadn't. We have a house in Oak Harbor and do not normaly eat at tourist traps. We ordered sauerkraut balls and were surprised when they also contain corned beef. They did not mention this on the sign and I had to ask the clerk what the bits of meat were inside the quarter side balls. The woman behind the counter was extremely rude, the food was overpriced, and the decor was stuck in the early 80s. They have a sign on the door letting patrOns know that those who bring in outside food will be charged a $10.00 seat service fee? All this aside the fried chicken was decent. Would not recommend anything else.

Gateway has the BEST Reubens in the world!!! I love the waffle fries too! The owners actually work there and they take pride in their food and service. Great people & great food!
