Food and restaurants in Lake Erie

Top restaurants

BBQ Restaurant
“Really really good slow cooked ribs. Always busy. Sometimes an hour wait time. If that happens, there are other worthy restaurants on the same strip. It's across the street from the old train station that was abandoned and vacant for thirty years and has recently been bought by the Ford Motor Company to be a headquarters for their autonomous car research and development”

Brewery
“This historic brewing company is the first to open up in Ohio and is a must visit for all of the beer lovers out there. They feature some of Ohio's most popular beers and they are still going strong. Enjoy the inviting atmosphere and even take a private or public tour at this historic Cleveland spot!”
