We stopped in for breakfast. The restaurant was filled with tons of locals but all very friendly. Our order was taken quickly. When the good came out, our omlets were huge! I couldn't even finish mine! Food was delicious and very filling. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in town.

I have lived in Sandusky for 24 years and have never had a bad meal at Berardis. I especially like the diamond Jim sandwich. It is not listed on the menu but ask for it and they will prepare it. Their French fries are very good too.

They have good food but recently remodled and changed there menu. Not as good as they used to be but still a good meal.

First time here. Lots of good choices and got plenty to eat. Homemade French fries. Had fried green tomatoes on my sandwich. Hubby had tenderloin so huge it was folded in half.

Great lunch menu and they had gluten free options for my friend. Had chicken salad croissant and fries. Fries take you back to the original fries we had at cedar point.

I am in love with Berardi's - this is the best little gem of a restaurant I've found anywhere. Ironically, I found this place one day due to an online review.

This is a small country-style restaurant. This is the kind of place we look for when we travel. The food is outstanding and our waitress was excellent. This was our first time here, but we will be back.
