We were in Port Clinton over the Labor Day week (Sept 7th) and my mother and I wanted a salad. We got the Chicken Pecan Salad and it was awesome. My husband got the turkey club and my father got the burger, both was good. My husband then got the hot fudge ice cream cake which he loves. The service... More

This Frisch's was within walking distance of our hotel. We went there for breakfast three mornings in a row and all three mornings had a perfect breakfast. The eggs were done perfectly. The toast was fresh. The service was excellent and the view of the lake made breakfast so special.

Ate here for dinner while I was in Port Clinton. The drive thru person did not give me the whole meal I paid for. There were bugs all over the outside window and it was filthy, not just from bugs.

Thought my family and I would try lunch a little further away from home. To get away from some of the Cedar Point tourists, so we decided to come out to Big Boys. The food was good, except they should give you more fries with your lunch. The waitress was not very friendly at all. No smiles, and my family... More

Met some friends there to dine, we spent 2 1/2 hours camped there. The food was good, the service was very good. Due to our extended stay, I tipped our waitress $10 on a $12 tab. She was courteous and professional, I wanted to make up for some lost tips even though we were there during a slow time. Good... More
