I have lived in Sandusky for 24 years and have never had a bad meal at Berardis. I especially like the diamond Jim sandwich. It is not listed on the menu but ask for it and they will prepare it. Their French fries are very good too.

They have good food but recently remodled and changed there menu. Not as good as they used to be but still a good meal.

First time here. Lots of good choices and got plenty to eat. Homemade French fries. Had fried green tomatoes on my sandwich. Hubby had tenderloin so huge it was folded in half.

Great lunch menu and they had gluten free options for my friend. Had chicken salad croissant and fries. Fries take you back to the original fries we had at cedar point.

I am in love with Berardi's - this is the best little gem of a restaurant I've found anywhere. Ironically, I found this place one day due to an online review. I knew they had a history in Sandusky, but I never knew just how good it was until we went for breakfast on a Saturday morning. Simply put, this... More

This is a small country-style restaurant. This is the kind of place we look for when we travel. The food is outstanding and our waitress was excellent. This was our first time here, but we will be back.

I saw croissant on the breakfast menu. And felt it worth trying. It seemed like an omelet in the bread. Very filling & I had to take half home. Built from a rail car and once at Cedar Point.

Thank Dorothy M
