We sat outside - the chairs were metal so I stuck to them while wearing shorts. Ouch! My husband had the pasta and he enjoyed it. I couldn't believe the prices. They were so high! I ended up with a boring old pulled pork sandwich....More

This is usually a great stop. No crowds. No wait time. TERRIBLE SERVICE! I ordered a salad with no cheese, which the server repeated back after all the orders were placed. We waited 25 minutes for our food. Fries were cold. Salad was full of...More

Great location on the shore of lake Erie not far from Cedar Point. They have great perch and walleye from Make Erie, as well as other wonderful menu items. We had the broiled walleye and the accompanying mixed vegetables were delicious.

We went on a Saturday night in July and the place was packed. It took an hour to get a table. Our waitress was friendly and very efficient. The food was excellent. Count on paying a minimum of $20 for dinner.

My wife and I were traveling through OH and decided on Port Clinton, and once we found our hotel they recommended Dock's Beach House and we weren't disappointed! Fantastic food, a fun beach atmosphere, and a spectacular sunset made for a nice evening!
