Great food and very good prices. Staff is very nice too. Yes I feel this place is also kid friendly. My favorite is the triple appetizers. I love the pretzel bites, fried pickles, and cheese curds.😋

Some of the best pizza we ever ate. Kicking Chicken pizza is spicy with jalapeños in stringy mozzarella cheese. We also had an Italian Sub which was delicious and fresh. Nice little hole in the wall that I would recommend.

Right on the Portage river tucked back in the corner of marinas and cottages, nothing fancy but cold beverages, great service, good food and very reasonable prices. Neat place to go with nightly “specials” and large serving portions. Get there by bike, car, truck or...boat and have a good time, and don’t dress up...relax and enjoy...inside and outside seating as well as an outside designated smoking area...they cater to everyone...More

We have been coming to Port Clinton for over 40 years but Siri lead us to this dive bar which we have never been. It was a wonderful find. You know you are in a dive bar when there are rolls of paper towels on...the table and dollar bills stapled above the bar. If this bar was in NYC, I am sure it would have a C rating on cleanliness but it is a dive bar on Lake Erie. The waiter proudly told us that is the number one bar in the nation that sells Busch Lite:-) It was so good that we went back 2 days later for Tuesday pizza night special which is buy one get one 50% off. We recommend the egg rolls and pretzel bites and pay the extra 50 cents for the cup of nacho cheese. The first night I had the shrimp basket which was really good but I would skip the hushpuppies. They did lack some flavoring but the shrimp and fries were good. The burgers tasted like homemade and not frozen. The fries are like fresh cut thick fair fries that are delicious with malt vinegar on them:-) The kids got kid burger, dinosaur chicken nuggets, & mini corn dogs and enjoyed with waffle fries.More

We stopped here based on the reviews. It seemed like it would be a good place for pizza. We've taken our kids to other bars like this in the area for early dinners and they were fine, but this one was too scuzzy. The really...crappy music inside was blaring, the whole place was dirty, and it smelled like smoke. We decided to sit on the patio. The view is okay, as in you can see the water, but it was crowded and smoky here too. We got a pitcher of water and the pitcher was noticeably grimy. That pretty much clinched it for us and we left. I didn't give them only one star since we didn't eat and maybe the food/drinks are great, but this is definitely an adults who like dive bars only type of place.More

Sit on the patio, sip a beer, enjoy the water view and food. Perfect day! We just stopped here for a quick bite while spending the day in the area. My husband's burger was, and I quote, "Real meat... not a pre-formed frozen perfectly shaped...patty..." I had very tasty pretzel bites with cheese dip. Friendly server, sweet place to eat and sit.More

We had heard that this place has great pizza. We tried the Chicken Ranch pizza and were disappointed. It was just ok. Had way too much lettuce and very little chicken. The other couple with us had the perch sandwich and the breaded veal sandwich....Portions were large and looked delicious. Both said their meals were as good as they looked. Atmosphere was very simple so no need to dress up. Fairly good size crowd and by the looks of it they were all repeat customers. Everyone seemed to know the waitresses as well as each other. Felt a little like an outsider because of that but will return to try other menu items. Service was great and it was enjoyable watching the boats as they came and went.More

Excellent pizza and a great view at the tiki hut. Dive bar with good greasy food and a good place to watch the sunset.

Wonderful staff, excellent food. Great view and outdoor seating. Love this place. People can pull right up on their boat and enjoy a cold one.
