we had 8 of us and the service was great. The food was good for the money. Nice place to take a family and a very wide selection of food on the menu. Desserts looked great but i didnt have one. too stuffed.

Have to stay away from bakery items. But Service and breakfast options perfect. Love the fact that chef prepares eggs as ordered. Not always the case at breakfast.

Great lunch choices from salads, sandwiches (hot or cold), or a late breakfast, you can't beat Berardi's!

This is my most favorite place to go when I'm in town visiting family. I always have to stop for the potato knoeffle soup and fat French fries! Always a must stop. The staff is always friendly.

We met friends there and it was the first time any of us had ate at Berardi's. I picked the place based off reviews. Boy, they were spot on. We had burgers, fish, hand breaded chicken tenders, fries, soup and mushrooms. All were perfect. Everything we watched come out of the kitchen had us wishing we had ordered that. Service... More

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!

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....
