We have dines for breakfast and visited the bar for our night caps of local wine flavors and varieties. Breakfasts were most deffinately filling and of a good portion size for the amount of items you get you should never leave hungry. I recommend the Gingerbread waffles withpecans and maple syrup. I also put in good words for their oatmeal... More

My husband and I had an amazing dinner at the Crosswinds Grille on Sweetest Day. It is a 40 minute drive from our home in Mentor, how we missed this hidden gem is beyond us. We started with a lovely Rose that will hold its own against many French Rose's. We decided to have shared appetizers of shrimp and grits,... More

Sat at the bar to have a drink and ended up enjoying dinner. The bartenders were all very pleasant and helpful. They were fun to chat with and their recommendations for food were perfect. The windows face outside to the beautiful gardens and a bit of the view of Lake Erie. Great food, great price and great service.

We came up and spent the weekend at Geneva on the Lake. On Saturday evening, we ate dinner at Crosswinds Grille. Food was delicious and the cocktails were good. We ordered the short rib pierogis for an appetizer. I had the kale salad and my wife had the house salad. Both were fresh and the salad was not wilted. For... More

Had dinner and breakfast here. The food and service was tremendous. The scallops appetizer were amazing, and the steak dinner much better than your would expect from a Grille on the lake. We look forward to returning again next year!!

We stayed in the Inn and had breakfast, lunch and dinner. The corned beef hash was very flavorful with larger than usual cubes of meat. For lunch on the patio, the perch sandwich had a generous portion of fish and crunchy kettle chips. I had the duck for dinner, cooked as the chef recommended-rare was satisfying in that the natural... More

Pizza and wine on the patio, divine! Farm to table dining inside, extremely dissappointing. Kale salad was over cooked, mushy, chewy and lacked color and flavor. Shrimp & scallop entree was super salty and had far too much of one of the ingredients. Server was not attentive and lacked high end, quality service training. Really too bad and so disappointing...
