Just off the main strip and tourist attractions, there's a very small restaurant in an odd tudor house tucked-in next to a burger joint and deli. The lights are dim; the space cramped. Only a handful of tables to serve. But, what you get here...More

This is a small steakhouse on the northeast side of Sandusky. It doesn't look like much from the outside, and food preparation takes a bit longer, but it is worth the wait. My steak was cooked blue rare exactly how I wanted it. Delicious!
