“Brandy Alexanders at their utmost finest!”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

Gary and crew ARE Kelley's Island. You've never had a Brandy Alexander until you've had theirs. A true island institution that's a must if you're headed to the Lake Erie Islands. High 5 Gary to make it a complete visit. Authentic as authentic gets, and I've been here a zillion times!

“A fun place to spend an afternoon!”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Great service from a very friendly staff, excellent food, and an iced cold pitcher of Brandy Alexanders will be enjoyable for anyone visiting The Village Pump, on Kelley's Island, Lake Erie! My favorite are the to die for steak bites, but you won't be disappointed with anything that you order. Very relaxing and fun place to go!

We really enjoyed the homemade lobster chowder and spinach salad. The people that work there are very nice.

“bad food, great service”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

Our server was very friendly and helpful, but the food was very unsatisfying. We understand the locals love it, though. I'm happy for them, but it wasn't good for us food snobs.
