This is a bar with a very interesting menu, but the food under delivers. Service was fine, but we were disappointed w the food and value proposition. The server suggested the "home-made" ribs, which I found to be greasy, w lots of grissel and somewhat overcooked. The sauce was watery and weak w little flavoring. The steak was tough and... More

Very good food! Service was excellent and the wait was short. We were seated immediately and our food arrived quickly after our order was taken. Will stop in again.

We tried the Waldo pretzel bite, loaded in garlic and parm with hot nacho sauce n the side.....oh my gosh! So good and glad we both like garlic and decided on this new appetizer. We ordered another new item Thai Pasta, very good but way too filling, had to take half home for lunch.

We had a delicious and enjoyable experience on Sunday, August 28. We expected typical bar food, which they do have. We weren't expecting such a large and diverse menu with with the majority of the items made from scratch. My husband was pleased that his lobster bisque had large chunks of lobster. We were both impressed with the large portions... More

5 of us ate dinner there and all of us chose the Chicken Parmigiana as the entree because it was the house special for Sunday at $10. We were all disappointed because it's not what we expected compared to other restaurants. It's basically pasta, red sauce, chunks of chicken, and minimal thin slices of cheese. The crusty garlic bread (3... More

Our favorite thing about this place was that you could talk without music blasting loudly. Server was friendly, the lobster bisque is very good, the pretzel bites appetizer was okay, but even for the garlic lover in me they were covered with way too much garlic. Husband had an okay steak (I keep telling him to order steak in the... More

This is in a strip mall. It was really dark inside even though we went for lunch on a sunny day. Typical of the area it was loud and designed for people to come and drink (two bars).

Have eaten here multiple times on my stays in Port Clinton. Food has always been good but not outstanding. Service is usually good for this area. Service around Port Clinton in the Summer can be really bad. I usually get a wrap of which they have several types and the sweet potato fries are good. There is a good beer... More

Got the surf and turf special which was a lousy undercooked steak with 1 mussel, 1 shrimp, 2 small quarter size clams, some calamari and crab that appeared to come out of a can dumped on top. The coleslaw was stringy and sour, the rolls cold and stale. We were very disappointed because when we entered the atmosphere seemed like... More
