There is something intriguing about these waterfront cafes...think Hemingway or Rick's in Casablanca. A very nice selection of Ohio craft beers on tap...served up very nicely by Kaylee.

I love this place. Only time in my life I've been to Sandusky Ohio. My wife and I had stopped at a specialty store while passing by Sandusky. The store was in the downtown area. Wanted lunch and just happened to be beside HD Tony's. Parking is very easy. The restaurant is easy to find. The staff is very friendly,... More

I come by HDT's whenever I'm in a hurry or have limited time for a meal. They have pretty decent lunch specials and beer specials, and the food is your typical bar food.

A great spot right by the water and in the heart of downtown Sandusky. I love stopping by for the weekend entertainment.

My friend from New York recommended that we stop by HDT's on a recent trip to Sandusky. He is a hot dog connoisseur and knows where to go. We weren't disappointed at all. Great food, friendly staff, good beer, and a great time. Highly, highly recommend this place.

Excellent food! Appetizers were wonderful- could make a meal out of those alone. Hot dogs are great- so many ways to have them. Affordable dinner for a family of four on vacation. Would recommend after a day on the water for a nice lunch or dinner.

The place was not busy when we arrived for supper time. We were seated immediatly and drink orders taken right away, and then the wait began. There were 2 adults and 2 children in our party and the drinks from the bar came before my kids sodas. We even had to ask for them after the waiter had been to... More
