We really enjoyed our meal at Zinc. The atmosphere was like a large city restaurant which was a fun surprise in Sandusky.

We dined here while in vacation in Sandusky. Our server was very knowledgable and attentive - the food was outstanding. Would highly recommend the Zinc Brasserie. As another reviewer posted, one of the best restaurants we have been to in a while.

The food and drinks are out of this world good! I have taken the wife here for our anniversary a couple times and have never been disappointed! Always try the specials. The only cons are it's pricey and the atmosphere is a little cramped.

We were in the area for a friend's wedding to be held the following day. There was live music at the lake front and a vintage car show so we were drawn to the street where Zinc is located. . Zinc is one of the best restaurants I have been to recently and I'm fortunate to do lots of traveling.... More

Don't get me wrong. My wife and I love perch, and the Sandusky-Port Clinton area is one of the best places to get it fresh. But every now and again, you need a change. We were staying in the area for a few days, and decided to find a special place to celebrate our anniversary. This place was on the... More

I last ate here on my anniversary in march and they seated us at this horrible two-top table next to the front door that every time someone opened we froze. Well they sat my sister and I at the same table and although it was warm it is just not a good table. Both times we made reservations. I don't... More

Wouldn't expect to have such high quality food in a town the size of Sandusky - but here it is, and in a downtown storefront no less. Once inside the atmosphere is just right, and the food is exquisite.

Love Downtown Sandusky! Cool buildings and a great waterfront! The Zinc has a unique menu and unique venue. The food is eclectic french, and very good, great atmosphere, with a zinc bar top.

Family was in town to see a show at The Sandusky State Theater. The restaurant is directly across the street from the theater which allows for parking and dining prior to the show and then just walking across the street. There are no other comparable restaurants within walking distance, only those offering more of a sports bar feel, so we... More
