The new Zinc is just wonderful! Their new location is bigger than the last, yet maintains unique and charming atmosphere. For small town Sandusky, it is a real gem in every way. Top notch food & drink have people coming back time and time again.

We frequent Zinc and have never had a bad meal or inadequate service. My husband loves the chicken and I enjoy the beef or scallops. Nice wine list, as well.
