“Our waiter made this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2012

Our waiter, John, was awesome! The food was good and the view was hard to beat. I had the meatloaf sandwich and really liked it. My hubby had the shrimp quesadilla and also said it was good. My only complaint was my daquiri ran out too soon!

“Great for lunch or for a snack”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2012

Nice to eat outside on warmer days and enjoy the snacks or lunch menu. Great prices. Can be a little rowdy at night, but good during the day for families.

“Nice meal on the water for all family members”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2011

We only dined at 3 places on Kelleys Island, and this was our favorite. I am giving it 5 stars, not because it was exceptional based on all of my lifetime's dining experiences, but because it was exceptional for the options we had on Kelleys Island. First of all, it is surprisingly one of the few restaurants taking advantage of the waterfront. While Lake Erie is not going to be mistaken for the tropics, the water and the view are very nice. So, dining on the water is very appreciated. Also, the menu is very varied with nice selections that are not all fried. While there were many entrees that tempted me, I decided to get a "Polish Sausage Reuben", which was very tasty and actually "memorable". Another diner got the "Sliced Ribeye Sandwhich", which also got rave reviews. Somebody else got a couple of bowls of soup and they were very happy. My wife got a salad with sliced steak on top. Finally, my other son got cheese ravioli. Were any of the meal choices "gourmet"? No -- but we were all happy with what we ordered and it was not fried fish and french fries. This is rare on a Great Lakes island. One last comment on soups -- we all agreed that the Seafood Chowder at Dockers was much better than the Lobster Chowder that the Village Pump brags about.

“Good food and a great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2011

We both enjoyed our meals. The outside view of the lake is great. A restaurant in the downtown area that doesn't smell like grease/cooking oil.

“Best view, on the water and always feel welcome.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2011

Crab cakes with cajun aoli make ya smile. Cookie and the crew make all feel like one of the family. Great wine list, music (thanks Steve) and the best breeze. Love to sit around with the marina grinning at you. Lobster in martini glasses rule. What a happy place. Thank you.
