We dined here Friday night they have all you can eat fish for $10.99. Very good I was served three pieces plus two sides and a homemade roll. Very nice place to eat.

I am just filling out this review to inform people looking to go here it has changed names. I have not tried out the new Brewery. The Lakefront Restaurant always had great food and more often than not slow service. The outdoor deck was a great place to sit and hopefully they are still using it.

This place is in the midst of a total remodel and change of venue. The inside is still closed. When opened it will house a new Lakefront Brewing Company. Right now you can eat and drink outside at the bar area. Limited food menu at the time . When I went to the website, was greeted by message - Future... More

We have eaten here several times and enjoy dining on the deck. Our food has always been good. One time we found it was closed in April. Nowhere do we see when the restaurant opens and we assume it is seasonal.....

The bartender was prude and stand-offish. The food was average bar garbage. The beer was pricey. Bar stools cut and ragged. Would not go back to this place.

My wife and I had lunch here in July 2014. This was the second time eating here, first time was in July 2013. Nothing had changed - good, capable service, a great view (the patio overlooks Lake Erie and on a nice breezy day, the wind in the trees and the water makes for an excellent dining environment). Ridiculously large... More

Slow waitress. Meal bathed in butter. Cajun linguini seafood. Blah. 3 oysters. 3 scallops and 3 shrimp with fake crab. No Cajun flavor at all. Check was for 2 people they put the tip on the bill. I'm a big tipper. She got exact change. More than she deserved. I'm local. I will never eat there again. Nor would I... More

Don't judge the exterior of GOTL restaurants. Each one has its own hidden gems. This restaurant has a huge deck overlooking Lake Erie. Just an awesome dining experience sitting by the lake. Friendly waitress and our chef this visit prepared a high quality meal. I had the seafood platter consisting of deep fried fish, scallops, clams, and shrimp. Each had... More
