I debated on whether or not to dine at this restaurant. The outside appearance leaves a lot to be desired. I had already made reservations, and it was getting late, so I decided to stay for dinner. I was pleasantly surprised. It is a quaint restaurant with finer dining prices, but the food and service were exemplary. Not only was... More

We went here based on the Trip Advisor reviews. Odd place from the outside but quite nice inside. It took awhile to get served. Yes we met Jamie, the owner, who was incredibly likeable and knowledgable about his menu. Ordered the pork chop and pacific cod for my wife and myself. The wait time was agonizing. The salad order was... More

This was an unexpected find as we were in the area for a conference. The chef came out to check on us twice - first to explain the menu and second to see how we enjoyed the meal. He was fun to talk with and spot-on with his descriptions and recommendations. We ordered the stuffed shrimp appetizer, salmon, and crab... More

Service was amazing and the chef would prepare anything we asked for...my son wanted lemonade and they didn't have any so they made him it fresh!! Salmon was wonderful the... More

My wife & I wanted something different than a chain restaurant during our stay in Sandusky. We were pleasantly surprised. It is a small dining area which is nice and it has a very pleasant atmosphere. The staff takes care of you and the Chef comes by your table to make sure everything is to your liking. When we return... More

Three and a half hours!!! This is America; we've got better things to do. No apparent management on site, but it feels like they put on a sham to justify their high prices. The steaks were good, but were not served as ordered. The salad was small and warm, but pretty. The potatoes were large and well cooked, but no... More

Stopped in here recently discovered it passing by. We were greeted by the Chef upon arrival. He baked us a loaf of fresh bread prior to ordering dinner. It was delicious! I ordered the 12 Oz Strip Steak with a house salad. The salad had baby greens and the dressing was homemade. The steak was cooked to perfection, seasoned perfectly!... More

It may not look like much from the outside other than some beautiful hanging baskets of flowers but it has great food. I just wanted a plain cheese and ham sandwich without any trimmings, sauces or salads and that is exactly what I got and served in the best tasting bread roll I have tasted in ages. My partner had...

You get what you pay for! We ordered the. 24oz. Ribeye steak and the Copper sockeye salmon. Both were the absolute best quality and taste that we have had ever! My wife ordered her ribeye rare, it was presented with an out crust layer with hints of char while the inside was red and rare, perfectly done! I ordered the... More
