First and last visit to this resturant. They open at 4:00 we were the first in and no additional customers until 5:00. This is a very pricy restaurant for what you get. Food was OK not what you would expect for what it cost. The lady behind the bar never stopped talking to the server even discussed politics which should... More

While staying up in Port Clinton at a B & B our host recommended the 1812 restaurant. A very top notch dining experience. Our meals we cooked perfectly (pork & pears and Chicken parmesan). Nice wine list and great service. After talking to the server we were told that it's the same ownership as Rosie's Bar which we had dined... More

I have nothing but compliments for the service and food and their ability to accommodate a large group of us on very short notice. Our family reunion/Thanksgiving meal was planned at the hotel we stayed at. This was cancelled the week of Thanksgiving so my aunt scrambled to find a place for our Thanksgiving meal for roughly 30 people, at... More

My wife and I attended a Christmas party/business meeting for a local organization. The food was excellent but I can only give an average rate because the drinks were expensive and not that great. I had a Long Island Ice Tea and my wife had a Manhattan for $24.00 total. I have had much better Long Islands for $6-$7 range.... More

Our family reunion party of 32 enjoyed a delicious Thanksgiving buffet, consisting of salad, green bean casserole, Brussel sprouts, creamed corn with truffle oil, sweet potatoes, mashed red skins, stuffing, ham, salmon with cranberries and hazelnuts, and of course a turkey carving station. We were so well cared for and we will return. But that is only half of the... More

We have eaten here quite a few times. Food always good, service can be slow. The desserts are homemade and large! Save room. Lobster Bisque is good, strip steak delicious. Salads are fresh and nice choices.
