I was looking for something different; a mom and pop place with good breakfast options. I found it here. Their menu is full, but their omelettes are especially impressive. And the service was fast and cordial.

I have personally never been here before, but my wife has. Short story: You gotta eat here! Not only was the food amazing, but the staff are top notch. From the moment you walk in, until the moment you leave, they treat you like they've known you forever. There are a ton of food selections. All serving, including their appetizers... More

This is somewhat of a local institution. They have been in Sandusky 35 plus years. A big menu is offered. We had a good lunch with sandwiches and of course the famous Bernardi frys! When you walk in the bakery case is front and center... everything is is home made. The coconut cream pie is delicious! Took home a fresh... More

Was at Kalahari for an overnight and didn't want to pay the high prices there for dinner. Took my daughter and her friend here. We all liked our food, prices and service were good also. Going to Cedar Point in a few weeks and plan on going back here for our dinner!

Sooo much better than the chain restaurants in the area. Gluten free friendly with many options and menu labeled. Server was wonderful. Fresh, most options cooked from scratch including yummy salad dressings. Kids meals good size portion filling my three boys.

We came with my family (two little kids). The food and the service were excellent! I would highly recommend this place!! So bummed that I didn't try the desserts! My husband just wished there were some kind of sauce on his meal called "the Regg."

About every two years when we are back in Ohio for a visit, we meet my siblings here for lunch. Since our last visit the entire place has been renovated and looks great. Even better, the food and the service are still exceptional and a great value for the money. The portions are good size and you must save room... More
