Our favorite thing about this place was that you could talk without music blasting loudly. Server was friendly, the lobster bisque is very good, the pretzel bites appetizer was okay, but even for the garlic lover in me they were covered with way too much garlic. Husband had an okay steak (I keep telling him to order steak in the... More

This is in a strip mall. It was really dark inside even though we went for lunch on a sunny day. Typical of the area it was loud and designed for people to come and drink (two bars).

Have eaten here multiple times on my stays in Port Clinton. Food has always been good but not outstanding. Service is usually good for this area. Service around Port Clinton in the Summer can be really bad. I usually get a wrap of which they have several types and the sweet potato fries are good. There is a good beer... More

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!
