Where to start, how about the moment we walked in the door and they decided to sit us on the otherside. If I wanted to sit on the kitchen bar side I would of walked in that door. The staff was very unattentive too busy talking too each other, I had to get her attention just to get a drink.... More

Could not ask for a better meal in Sandusky. Everything thing about this establishment is wonderful. We brought our young children, and the staff was accommodating for a family.

Obviously Crush Winebar is a popular place. It was full including a large party celebration. If you're an oenophile (very into wine), though, adjust your expectations. The wine list was mediocre at best. We had a cheese plate which was good. The servers were nice but not particularly accommodating. I'd like to try more of the food, but I won't... More

We went here for drinks, & ended up ordering food. They have theeee best macaroni & cheese I've ever tasted. I also ordered their icewine martini & all I needed was 1. Customer service was great also. We definitely will be going back

They have a nice tapas menu along with some other plates. The wine selection and bar staff were super.

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 &...
