Love coming here for their Walleye Combo. What helps the whole atmosphere is sitting outside next to Sandusky Bay. To me its worth the trip. Couple of friends of mine also had high marks for the New Sandusky Fish Company. If you're coming to Sandusky this is a great place to eat!

The perch sandwiches were delicious. Restaurant is carry out only, but there are picnic tables and benches right outside.

In 25+ years--I have never been disappointed here. We drive 2 hours just for the perch. The food quality is exceptional and the prices are very reasonable. If you are aware of the Lake Erie perch prices--you know the prices are a bargain. Nothing fancy--down to earth food. You can taste the freshness of the perch and they do NOT... More

This place has decent reviews, but it wasn't what I expected. We ordered the walleye combo for several of us - sandwich, a side and a drink. The fish was lightly cornbreaded on a regular hamburger bun. No real flavor. Salt would have gone a long way to enhance the flavor. The tarter sauce was pretty decent. We also ordered... More

Several people recommended this spot as the best fish in the area, fresh yaddayadda. Not so..Perch was rubbery, obviously frozen, the buns went to the birds and the fires were extremely greasy..into the bin. pricey as well for the dinner and what you got. More average American food. Skip it.

This was our first visit, but we will definitely return! This is not a fancy spot by any means....picnic tables by the shore with Canadian geese all around. The perch was made fresh along with the onion rings. We loved it and have tried many local perch spots. This one topped all of them in the area.

Order inside, eat outside, and enjoy views of Sandusky Bay and Cedar Point. We have tried perch at almost every restaurant and this is the best.

I tried the perch sandwich which was suggested by an in-law. It was ok, but I did not really care for the breading on the fish. If family wants to return, I will go with them, but it would not be my personal choice in Sandusky.

It is a perch and walleye sandwich shop. Their fish is fresh and delicious. My picky wife was loving it. It also reminds me of old fish houses from Florida where I use to drop off my catches. You smell the fish coming in.... And going out in the food bags. So if you are a delicate flower you might... More

Best perch sandwich around. Outdoor seating by the water with some feathered friends. Friendly help...the place is kind of a time warp. Simple basic and one of a kind.
