“Wings were good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

Went on fathers day, it was extremely busy almost an hour wait to sit outside. We ended up sitting inside. Our server was really friendly. The little kids menu was $1.99 on Sundays, which was nice but older kids menu was $5.99. After we order, and it was taking awhile our server brought us over complementary potato chips since the food was taking so long. My husband and I ordered wings and they were good and a nice size. We also had the pretzels which were also very tasty. Would recommend.

“A default choice that turned out well”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

I was with a group of people who were in Vermilion to find a place for dinner. We broke up into several small groups depending on our choice of local restaurants, but it turned out that the other two were closed on Mondays! So in the end we all ended up at Quaker Steak, eating at tables out on the veranda and enjoying the view of the marina, the service, and the food.

So in the end, it was the best choice after all!

“Great location, too-pokey service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

While visiting our daughter in Cleveland we took day trip to explore the shore area east of the city and we stopped here for lunch, tempted by the nice location on the canal. Because it was pretty windy we decided to eat inside rather than in shaded outdoor seating, which turned out to be a bad move. It was quite cold inside (way too much AC) and the waiter's attention was clearly on the busier outdoor tables. He came over right away and brought water with lemon wedges and utensils but never gave us another look. He came in and out of the dining room numerous times to retrieve and deliver food/drinks outside and to cash out bills, but managed to avoid eye contact with us for a good half hour. At that point, we decided it was time to find another place to eat.

What we saw of the menu and the food that others had managed to order (including the guy at an adjacent table who arrived after us but who had another server) looked like basic pub food. Not a lot of choices for vegetarians (not even a frozen veggie burger alternative to the meat versions), but I was prepared to order a salad and a side of something. We were getting hungry and there was nothing all that compelling, so pulling the plug on our Lube experience wasn't a huge disappointment.

What a neat Quaker Steak and Lube. We were driving the coast and decided to stop here and have a beer. It was a great location.

“American food with a view of marina”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

My son and I stopped in here after a day fishing on Lake Erie. Needless to say, we were famished. The restaurant is situated overlooking the marina, so the view from the tables outside is nice if you like to look at boats while you eat. Food is pretty standard American fare with a few attempts at originality in some of the menu items. I had a burger and it was adequate for filling up after a day on the water. Service was alright and prices were fair.
