We visited this restaurant with friends and we were underwhelmed with the atmosphere, wait time, and the food. It was 50 minutes from the time of placing our order until we were even served our salads. I was expecting something spectacular from the other reviews so I must have set myself up for disappointment. The food was fine, but nothing... More

My mother and I arrived in Sandusky, OH on a business trip. We were looking for a steak and seafood restaurant to celebrate my 21st birthday. We came across Red Gable from a Google search and decided to give it a try. When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised. The elegance of the white tabletops, with roses garnishing each table...

Pulled up and thought I was at the wrong place. Came inside to old school steak house complete with white table cloths and neatly folded napkins. Not what I was expecting from outside. Best fresh bread and salad with homemade blue cheese I've had. Now to the ribeye juicy cooked right and can taste the mesquite flavor. I would say... More

Went with another couple. People kept interrupting our conversation to tell us how great our dinner was going to be (waitress, hostess, "chef", owner). It was annoying. Service was slow, food was average at best, expensive, and the place could really use some paint and cleaning. As other reviewers have noted there are spiders in the entry. The "chef" told... More

It was cold. Really cold, but it was our anniversary. So off we went to see if the Red Gables restaurant was even open. We had heard a lot of great comments from friends about this restaurant and were willing to venture out into the winter weather. Happily it was open. We were greeted by the chef and owner. He...

Spent our little family weekend at the castaway bay resort...(don't eat there.) Looking for a good place for a steak, Google recommended Red Gable. The moment we walked in we were greeted by a friendly knowledgeable hostess Jane. Then we were treated with Laurie and Taylor as our servers. They were informative, kind, funny and patient. The food is absolute... More

Our family had been staying the weekend at a local water park in Sandusky. It was our daughters 8th birthday, and we wanted to celebrate it with a great family meal. We found your restaurant when searching on Google. When we initially pulled in, it didn't look like a very fancy place however due to the great reviews we decided... More

We stumbled upon this little gem through our Google search. Everything was perfection. The chef, Moe, greeted us and let us know their specials for the night. The server, Lori, was amazing, friendly and so knowledgeable about the menu. The owner, Jamie, even came out to chat with us and you can tell he put so much thought, passion and... More

Jamie has done it again!!! The food and service is top notch! Please, do yourself a favor and stop in to dine in this quaint elegant establishment. You will NOT be disappointed! My recommendation is the Ahi Tuna! The best. There steaks, pastas, seafood is of the highest quality and fine dining!
