I've been to Sandusky so many times to visit family I can't even count, I never tried this restaurant. I could kick myself. My husband had a taste for wings and so we stopped in on a Friday evening. There are quite a few items...More

Like to go here on T-bone Tuesday. Food is really good, steak was well seasoned, no steak sauce needed. Kids enjoy going here too. Better service during off season when CP is closed, less traffic and less congestion.

We got some free passes for bowling so we checked out the bowling alley. We had to rent shoes, but that is normal. It was the evening and they had the lights turned off with disco balls and neon. We all had a great time....More

We love the Thirsty Pony, and stop there any time we are in Sandusky. Maybe we have better luck with service because we go before the mad rush of people, but we've never had a problem. We arrived on a Wednesday evening at 5:30, and...More
