Got the surf and turf special which was a lousy undercooked steak with 1 mussel, 1 shrimp, 2 small quarter size clams, some calamari and crab that appeared to come out of a can dumped on top. The coleslaw was stringy and sour, the rolls cold and stale. We were very disappointed because when we entered the atmosphere seemed like... More

Came here for lunch and the place was practically empty. Didn't think that was a good sign, but the food was delicious and the portions were large. Would come back again if I had a big appetite!

The waitress we had was the most air-headed person I've ever been around. She forgot about the rolls we were supposed to get, then forgot my husband's coffee, brought our meal out late, as it was cold. Every time we'd ask her about something, she'd glance at the table, and seem surprised we hadn't gotten that item yet. When my... More

The hotel clerk recommended Waldo Peppers.. I also saw reviews before traveling. When I pulled up and saw it was in a strip mall, I was disappointed. I didn't know if it was a family restaurant or more of a bar. I saw a mom and her children exiting so I decided to go in with my daughter and 2... More

Dont let the small store front appearance fool you. Its big on the inside and thedecor is great. All of our food was good. We stopped in for lunch on a Saturday. It was a holiday weekend (memorial day) and we were surprised they were not that busy. We stopped in about 1. The only complaint was the service and... More

I went here, while in town for a business trip with a group of colleagues, the service was good, food was great, very subtle laid back atmosphere. If you are in the area, stop by and try the perch platter and any of their IPA beers.... you won't be disappointed!

After leaving Put-In-Bay, we have stopped at this restaurant for several years. Love their Bloody Mary's, the atmosphere and the food. The Italian club on flatbread was fantastic!

845pm think usually on a Tuesday night somebody else is eating, nope but for an entire restaurant to be empty they put us in the back corner next to non vented lavatories. Assuming because they are open until 10 pm it would be an inconvenience to clean another area that has a window or see people working, instead TV on... More

We hosted a wedding rehearsal dinner here. Arrangements were easy to make and the food choices were extensive. On the day of the dinner we went in early to check out our room and set a few things up. Everything was what they said it would be and more. The food was excellent and the beer and wine selections were... More
