Five friends and I were visiting from Chicago last weekend and someone recommended Crush as a good spot for dinner. Wasn't sure what to expect but it was fantastic! Great drinks from the bar, interesting and delicious food. Both bartender and server were very attentive and friendly. Highly recommend if you want something a little different from national chain food.

We arrived to a relatively empty restaurant, but service still seemed a bit slow. Our table had ac blasting us on one side. We could rearrange the seating so that most us were comfortable. The hamburger was good although cooked more than medium as ordered. The fries were limp. The sushi rolls were very good and the presentation was lovely.... More

We went here on the recommendation of our b&b host. Since we weren't all hungry for full meals we shared the bread, salad, mushroom bisque soup and the steak frites between the three of us and it was all delicious. Nice atmosphere, wonderful service, would highly recommend!

We were visiting the area and stopped in to the Kitchen/Bar on the recommendation of the bartender at a bar a few blocks away. Although the wine bar side of the place was fairly busy, the four of us were the only patrons of the Kitchen/Bar while we were there. It's hard to imagine given the high quality of the... More

This comfortable upscale restaurant is in downtown Sandusky, 1/2 block from the water. It's really nice inside, and has an interesting menu, kind of Italian/french/fusion.. It is still in keeping with Ohio tradition somewhat, i.e. large portions, rich & calorie laden. I ordered the smoked chicken mac & cheese, which I thought would come with a light creamy sauce &...

Great place for Adults to meet and share some vino with new and old friends. This is a sister business to Zinc, so it is a never go wrong place to meet.

A group of friends reserved the big table in the back for a birthday party. The service at CRUSH was attentive and friendly for our group of 12. The food was hot, delicious and well plated. The sushi fresh and flavorful. It's always a pleasure to eat there and we enjoy the ever changing specials.

My partner and I stopped in on a suggestion from a friend for dinner two weekends ago. We were able to get seated right away, which was nice. It was right before dinner rush but the hostess was very accommodating. We had a great server, I can't remember her name now though. She was very helpful. Great drinks, and we... More

Went toCrush Wine with hubby and it was amazing! We got hummus for an appetizer and it was fresh so good. I got a vegetarian dish with pasta and mushrooms it was delish! Hubby got a filet and really liked it. He said it was cooked perfectly.
