My husband and I stopped here while passing through on our way to Cedar Point. The menu was unique and the food delicious. The goat cheese appetizer was the most delicious starter I have ever tasted! And make sure to leave room for dessert!

Went there for dinner with my wife. They were packed, we had no reservations but they worked us right in. We had an excellent dinner and the ice cream was to die for. Would highly recommend this restaurant. Our server, Suzi, did an excellent job.
