Based on the reviews here, we stopped here on our way out of Sandusky. It was wonderful to eat at a local place rather than a chain. The desserts were all made from scratch. We saw them while waiting for a table and they looked wonderful. I have a sweet tooth so I knew I was ordering dessert. In anticipation... More

Portions are large. We shared a perch meal with 2 sides and an extra salad. Fish was hot and well cooked. Very good food, especially the Mac & cheese. We were too full for dessert but they looked wonderful and had quite a variety. I would go here again. Nice family restaurant.

We came here on a rainy day at Cedar point after reading reviews and we were not disappointed! We had Zach for our server and he was awesome. The hostess had taken our drink orders and Zach made a point to ask what we were drinking before he left our table. As soon as our drinks were empty, he was... More

Our friends suggested this place after they stopped in, by chance, for lunch. So we decided to try for breakfast yesterday and really enjoyed it. So, we are ending the weekend here too. Astrid was a great server, never a coffee cup empty. Great service, good food and good prices! We recommend!

We called in an order for this place to get dinner. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Lemon meringue pie was great, decent salad, lasagna a little too salty for my taste but not bad. Easy in & out for takeout or stay in to dine.

Everything was delicious, from the spinach salad, ribeye steak, and fries, all the way to the coconut pie!

Berardi's is certainly measuring up with today's boutique tastes while continuing to offer home town cooking. Stopped by for lunch. My salad was delicious and very nicely presented. The soup and sandwich we also ordered, were wonderful. Service was great. Their new addition really adds a nice space for parties, while their redecorated spaces offer fun home town atmosphere. I...

Fantastic breakfast!!! My husband and I have traveled quite a bit in our 20+ year marriage...have even eaten in Paris, France (after a 10 day Mediterranean cruise) and this place is now on my list of one of the best places I've ever eaten breakfast. He said he found it listed on a website and came highly recommended. I was... More

We come to Sandusky every year and heard of this restaurant from a friend. Our family has come here three times and love the choices! The food is filling and the pie is great!
