This restaurant is closed for the season but the Sound Bar is up and running and live entertainment will rock your summer! Guest boat and seaplane dockage is available and the waterfront view is second to none!

My son and his bride chose Clinkers at Lyman Harbor as the venue for their recent wedding reception. It was a magical experience. The room is surrounded with ceiling to floor windows. The view of the Harbor and the lights from Cedar Point Park was absolutely breathtaking.

Good food, good service, and amazing waterfront views. Great for large events or small events, have visited both trade shows and wedding receptions as well as gone in to eat at the Pub.

We started coming to this site when they were in the process of re-doing the old Lyman plant. Brought 10 or more boats to tie up at the docks and listen to the band/concert in the grass at night. Kept going, spreading the word and enjoying the evenings. They only had pavillion type things set up for a cold beer... More

Lyman Harbor has serious issues. The venue in no way makes up for the lousy service and food we experienced at our daughter's wedding on May 3, 2014. We paid a grand for the venue and it was a wreck! The owner promised me top notch food and an exquisite experience – food was horrible and the place was dirty.... More

We attended a wedding reception there recently. The hall was decorated very nicely. It was big and able to accommodate the amount of people there. The bar and restrooms were convenient. The restrooms were clean. The food was fair. Vegetables and vegetable lasagna was tasty but chicken didn't have much flavor and the potatoes were ok but too much seasoning.... More

Every year we're in Sandusky, my husband gets excited to visit here since this is where his boat was "born". Every time we've visited the experience has been mediocre at best. The menu is just average, the main restaraurant/bar area is stale, but the venue and history sets this place up that it could be so exciting. It's a museum... More
