So we went there because it was the 9th best restaurant in Sandusky. Well poor Sandusky it's a fun place but food is bar quality. If it was not for our server I would only rank this 3 stars!

Food was ok. Had the local fish and the tostada "nachos". Sat outside for a beautiful early evening but smoking is allowed so the smoke was horrible. That was disappointing. Server was nice. Convenient when staying in the hotel.

Great bar and grill with an extensive menu including unique options that you don't usually find at your average place. Excellent location and great staff and service.
