There is something intriguing about these waterfront cafes...think Hemingway or Rick's in Casablanca. A very nice selection of Ohio craft beers on tap...served up very nicely by Kaylee.

I love this place. Only time in my life I've been to Sandusky Ohio. My wife and I had stopped at a specialty store while passing by Sandusky. The store was in the downtown area. Wanted lunch and just happened to be beside HD Tony's....More
