This is a small country-style restaurant. This is the kind of place we look for when we travel. The food is outstanding and our waitress was excellent. This was our first time here, but we will be back.

I saw croissant on the breakfast menu. And felt it worth trying. It seemed like an omelet in the bread. Very filling & I had to take half home. Built from a rail car and once at Cedar Point.

After a day at Cedar Park and reading all the good reviews about Berardi’s Family Kitchen, we decided to dine here. This small country-style restaurant did not disappoint. Between our orders of their famous yellow, potato Knoepfle soup or salad with breaded veal dinners served with real mashed potatoes smothered in gravy to their hot shredded beef sandwiches and spicy...

This was recommended by Trip Advisor and I can understand why. At first, I thought the place was going to be too busy because the parking lot was full. I was able to walk in, get a table, and get help with the menu since it was my first time. There are several things I wanted to try. Waitress suggested... More

Generally they have just plain good food. Almost everything requires a little salt and pepper, but that isn't really a huge deal. Friendly staff.

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.
