DOS: 5/21/17 Even though not everything on the menu is gluten-free, they have a large binder filled with all of the ingredients in every menu item. HANDY! The restaurant is also quite airy and spacious, so no crowding. My husband ordered the Chicken Ranch pizza and I went for the Mediterranean Salad with the Citrus Grilled Shrimp on the side.... More

Anything but, run of the mill. Everything is given a special touch. Every staff member is friendly, helpful, and top notch. I'm actually writing this at my second visit, and loving it. If your burned out with the restaurant scene, you need to come here, and just enjoy yourself. They will treat you right.

Ordered the Veal parmesan and while it had good flavor the veal was ground breaded patties and the pasta was a little watery. Others in my group said their food was good. Service was just ok. It took awhile to get our drinks refilled.

This place was recommended by one of the shopkeepers in town. It lived up to the recommendation, where the locals eat. Ultimate pizza was great, original crust was the best. Service was a little slow.

Best food we had in the Port Clinton area during our stay! The Fettucine Alfredo with a grilled chicken breast is to due for! Not too thick or rich, and the chicken was seasoned & grilled to perfection! My husband had the Crosswinds cheeseburger and fries, and said it was delicious..and huge! A great value too!

The extensive menu brought us in while on vacation. The service was excellent and quick. The decor was great, and it may have been the cleanest restaurant I've ever been in. We ordered onion rings, a burger, kids pizza, and the Greek pasta bake. The food was excellent, except for the pasta bake. The pasta portion was small, mostly tasteless,... More

Wide range menu from pizza, pasta, to specials. Gluten free options. I usually get appetizer of shrimp skewers as my entree but have GF pasta bakes as well. Great craft beer on tap and always varies. Family enjoys the hearty Cobb salads and burgers. They don't take reservations but insider tip can do call ahead priority seating.

Great hand pressed burgers, love the pizza, and the pasta is fantastic (especially on Monday's in the winter when they're half price!) The wait staff is friendly and efficient!

I've grown up in the Sandusky area for years and always been past this place but never got to eat here. My family and I had dinner and I was impressed. Our waiter was very friendly and was checking on us. Our appetizer came out quick and was fresh and hot. My mom got a bbq bacon burger and I... More
