“The Italian was just average”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

The roast beef and mashed potatoes looked great and that's what most folks were ordering. I had spaghetti and meatballs that was OK but not great. My wife had chicken alfredo which was mostly cheese and chicken with a little alfredo sauce and some bow ties. She wasn't impressed at all. The burgers looked great but are quite pricey. They are a busy place so they must be doing something right.

“Love this restaurant”
Reviewed 18 October 2013 via mobile

We live out of town but whenever we come to Sandusky, we visit Barardi's. Delicious food, reasonable prices, and great service.

“Oh those french fries of Berardi's”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

I was born in Sandusky and always loved the French fries at Cedar Point. Our family did not have much money but I did save enough to get one order of these fries. When Berardi's was bought out at the Point, they opened a restaurant outside of town and whenever I visit there from Chicago, I try to stop and order the fries. This year I turned 75 so I had my birthday party there and 31 family members from California to Texas to Michigan to Illinois and to Ohio joined me at there location and what a great meal and those who ordered fries and pies from them were doubly pleased. Their wait staff and kitchen did a wonderful job on 32 individual orders and the food was hot and tasty. The food is reasonable too and my 21 year old grandson was amazed that my bill for 32 family members came to just over $500 including the tip. Could not do that in Chicago for sure.

“Pre-race Carb Loading”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

A group of about 15 or so had dinner at 6PM on a Saturday evening. The service was friendly, efficient and accommodating of our large group. Most of us had the spaghetti and meatballs which was very good especially the meatballs. No one in our party had any complaints about their service or food. This was not a fancy place, but very comfortable and clean. Definitely worth a dinner stop.

“Excellent family restaurant”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

We stopped here after staying at Cedar Point for the weekend. We went here after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. It was everything that everyone has said about it. We arrived between 9:30 and 10 on a Sunday. We didn't have to wait for a table. We were seated promptly and given coffee and drinks immediately. The waitress was attentive we were served promptly. My coffee was refilled several times without asking. The food was excellent and what you would expect from a family restaurant. First time eating here and I would definitely eat here again when in Sandusky. When we left at about 11 AM it was starting to get busy. Go early.
