The onion soup was outstanding. We had the surf and turf (scallops and sirloin) and pork chop. The scallops were tasty, the sirloin really not. The pork chop... More

Love to try new venues, especially near the water (North Coast) in this case. Walking inside were immediately in a lively bar atmosphere. We ate in the quieter dining room. Immediately our server introduced herself and provided us menus and asked about water. Was nice enough to allow my wife to sample a tap Pinot Noir before she ordered it.... More

Our food was phenomenal: complex flavors, not overbearing or fussy; beautiful plating. Our server was delightful. We had a great night here and recommend it without reservation.

Inside is a small more formal dining area in addition to a more relaxed bar area. Reservations are suggested for the dining area, especially on the weekend. We were... More

This is a place you can't go wrong eating at. It is locally owned and has set the bar in Sandusky for food quality.

The food and wine selection was very good and are serviced by Cameron was excellent. The whole evenings tone was set when we walked in the door and we were greeted by the blonde hostess with glasses who had a major attitude for some reason. She tried to force us in the bar and then huffed when we asked to... More
