Our family reunion party of 32 enjoyed a delicious Thanksgiving buffet, consisting of salad, green bean casserole, Brussel sprouts, creamed corn with truffle oil, sweet potatoes, mashed red skins, stuffing, ham, salmon with cranberries and hazelnuts, and of course a turkey carving station. We were so well cared for and we will return. But that is only half of the... More

We have eaten here quite a few times. Food always good, service can be slow. The desserts are homemade and large! Save room. Lobster Bisque is good, strip steak delicious. Salads are fresh and nice choices.

We weren't sure that we even wanted to go out for dinner but at the last minute we decided to drive from Sandusky to Port Clinton. We are trying to watch what we eat, so everything had to be modified a little, but they were very accommodating. Everything came out perfect.

We stopped in on a Friday evening to check out the new location. First impressions: The place is huge, but also quite empty. We saw that there was a patio and asked if we could be seated outside. The patio was nothing to get excited about, but has potential. We ordered drinks and the lobster dainties (which are spectacular). Maybe... More

Bob and I always budget, but make sure to Splurge at least once per trip. This is the place to SPLURGE. Well worth it,

We could not have been happier. We only ordered appetizers and drinks but everything we had was great. They have a lobster app and it was so good we ended up having several orders. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Wanted to try the new restaurant in Port Clinton! Menu had a very limited selection! Service was ok, with a very attentive and pleasant waitress. Food was good, but would have enjoyed s better selection

My favorite restaurant has moved to Sand Road where the food remains excellent and the view now compliments the food. The food has always been consistently fabulous and now it's a pleasure to enjoy the outdoor view with your meal. I highly recommend the lobster dainties and lamb chops appetizers, the 1812 salad, and the liver and onions are better... More

First time visit. Wife and I had the nightly special which was a ribeye steak along with duchess potatoes. Everyone was very nice and attentive and made sure our glasses stayed full. Salad was good but not spectacular. Our meal came in the middle of eating our salad so that wasn't the greatest. They give you a loaf of great... More
