We go here once or twice a year. The menu has a good selection of food and drinks. It's also fairly close to the ferry dock. If you take your own boat over they have transient docking right next door.

Very expensive for portion sizes was a nice spot but more to choose from like that it over looked the lake and boats

Before heading back to Sandusky, we had to stop here for their famous lobster bisque. Drinks are always good. The food is always delicious. Can't go wrong here.

We greeted and seated right away even though they were busy. The atmosphere was wonderful. We were starving after touring Put In Bay for the day. We ordered our drinks and two appetizers. One of the apps we ordered were nachos and the other were flatbread. We have a 15 and 17 year boys. A few minutes later our drinks... More

We ate lunch in the upper room of the Boardwalk. Think the menus from downstairs to up are different, but the upper room is a nicer dining area. We were greeted by a hostess and seated immediately. It was very clean and you can request to be seated outside on a balcony. There is view of the harbor from most... More
