Classic American fair! Can't go wrong with anything on the menu! Chicken paprika and strawberry malts, burgers and fries. This place is the bomb!

Had the traditional Oh Boy last night with my Grandson and husband. Always delicious. Plus wonderful milkshakes.

If you're looking for ambiance, look elsewhere. If you're looking for one of the best burgers you will ever have, come here and get the Oh Boy! Very good fries, onion rings, and shakes.

Their famous oh boy is worth a try. Fried clams are delicious and very reasonably priced. I love malted milkshakes and theirs are very good.

This place is great. Diner type atmosphere. Excellent shakes, burgers and even Lake Erie perch fish fry on Fridays. Very friendly staff. Excellent reputation. Very clean. Try it for an old time diner experience.

The one thing I did not like about this restaurant is they charge separate for your burger and fries. I guess thats a way to get more money for it. Also the fries were very thin. This burger and fries was not much better than a Burger King or McDonalds for the price.

My family has been eating here since I was a kid. The staff is always friendly and the food is always delicious. Get the Oh Boy Platter (or Jr. Oh Boy)!

Old fashion dinner, juke boxes on walls don't work anymore. I have eaten at Oh Boys since a kid, going to the Lorain County Fair. Great variety of sandwiches. The Oh Boy sauce unique.

Very friendly staff who treat you like family. Their Maryland chowder is out of this world. You will want to come back again and again.
