Have eaten here several times and it is very consistent. Food is all good with local fish on menu. Great place for Birders in the area.

This was our first visit to Crosswinds. Based on many past Lake Erie restaurant experiences, we expected the usual over-breaded, over-fried, and over-priced perch dinner. But NO! This was very nice: crisp but not over done fish, fresh cut french fries were not greasy, and...More

Ordered the Veal parmesan and while it had good flavor the veal was ground breaded patties and the pasta was a little watery. Others in my group said their food was good. Service was just ok. It took awhile to get our drinks refilled.
