A great place to stop in the summer for some ice cream or hot dog. Great outdoor seating area right at the entrance of the peninsula.

I took my granddaughter there. She just loved it. For the type of food they have, it was excellent. It's not somewhere I would go often. But I definitely will be going there again. If you have kids, it's a great place to go.

Stopping at Sara's is a must if you visit Presque Isle State Park. You can stop for dinner or just dessert. The atmosphere is fun and the food is great!

Food was fair. Not too impressed with the tables being so close. Won't waste time returning. Nothing great. We tried the Turkey burger, the hot dog and chicken. None of us like the buns.

Sara's is a fun outdoor dinning experience. My children love going to Sara's after a fun day at Presque Isle. The food is good and reasonably priced.

Sara's is an Erie "must visit" at least once a summer. They are always crowded, but the food is fresh and tasty, although calorie laden, but they move the lines along quickly. Don't waste your time on a salad, dig into a dog or a...More

There is a drive thru, however, going inside is half the experience with the cool memorabilia that they have there. It is like stepping back to the 1950's.

I have seen dogs on a leash there. Shade is a premium as the table umbrellas are the only source.
