We stopped by for lunch, the food was good, not great and service was good, not great. The restaurant was clean and they have a menu with enough items that everyone could find something. I am told that their breakfast is better than their lunch. We were there for lunch so I don't know for sure

This restaurant has excellent food, no matter which meal you are getting! The salads are so good, and their burgers are the best! Berardi's fries - yum!!! and don't forget to try the perch! The employees are so friendly and service is great! And don't forget to have dessert - they are the best around!

Service was fast and good was good. Big portions and desserts huge. Definitely a place I would go back to again. Maybe just for the dessert.

I have visited the Sandusky area several times each year since I moved away in 1975 and have never stopped to eat here. WHAT A MISTAKE!!! Everything here is top notch: from the staff to the food to the atmosphere. This is the ultimate friendly, neighborhood restaurant. I visited 3 times in 2 days, a rarity for me when travelling....

My family and I eat at Berardis at least once a week. The staff is very friendly, and we love all of the revamping that has taken place in the restaurant and on the menu. The Philly steak and fries are always a hit, along with the eggplant parm and burgers! If you are new to Berardis you have to... More

I've eaten here on multiple occasions and I've never been disappointed. Quality food, friendly staff, average pricing. Even their catering is fantastic. Truly a great example of what a restaurant can be. Try the Reg for breakfast if you are tired of the same old breakfast menu items, you won't be disappointed. I've probably had a dozen different menu items... More

If you want to try regional specialties (i.e. Fried sauerkraut balls, knoepfle potato dumpling soup) you are in for a pleasant dining experience- they famous for their Berardi's loaded fries which is a meal by itself. Full bar and incredible desserts. Do not miss going here if you are in the area - and go hungry!

I worked late and called in an order of french fries they were ready within 10 minutes. I was about 45 minutes from home and enjoyed every bit of it on my drive home!

Bella Rosa salad is positively my favorite salad! The best! Homemade salad dressing is delish! Super muffins, too!

The food is always great, and the service is equally good. If you're going for lunch, go bit early because there will be a line!
