I just went to the Brass Pelican in Sandusky for the second time in 10 years of living in Sandusky. The food is mediocre and the service absolutely sucked. We has to ask to be served, to get the lousy waitress to come back. When we wanted to cash out, went to the bar and let them know. The blonde... More

Food here is great. However, getting someone to take your order is a challenge. Sure would like one of those beers!

Second time here and we love the place! Your first impression from the outside may not be much. Even the inside, especially the back room (where we like to sit) isn't much to look at either. But do NOT let that deter you from staying. The food rocks! I believe the # of sauces available is up to 58 now.... More

May very well have the best wings in Sandusky area. Can be extremely busy but does not lack for space. During busy times the service can be slow, not sure if cause could be lack of help or kitchen staff is overwhelmed. Many menu choices and does not lack for uniqueness.

My family and I went to this restaurant while we were on vacation. We ended up waiting for two whole hours without receiving our food. Additionally, the restaurant was dirty and our waitress didn't provide us with any refills. I would steer away from this establishment if at all possible.

This is quaint old bar and restaurant. It's located by the Huron river and offers a nice view of the river. We went there for lunch and I ordered the perch sandwich. We had a pleasant time and enjoyed the view and the nearby pier. The place was very quiet but I'm sure it gets pretty lively there at night.... More

Had a birthday party for my granddaughter here and the service was terrible and the food not cooked all the way ( Wings ) and this is what they are noted for. Last trip for me.
