Traveled to Port Clinton and Marblehead to see the ice piled up along the shore. After an afternoon sight seeing we were hungry so tried the Crosswinds. Very good and reasonably priced. We all had a pasta dish and they were delish.

I go here for perch (a local fish). Their panko breaded perch is very good. I typically order the perch salad. Excellent food and not tons of calories!
