    We went here for a friends birthday while visiting Cedar Point. The evening sunset view was spectacular. We all had a mix of steak and sea food. Everything was great. The service is slow but acceptable for a fancy upscale restaurant. Don't expect to get in and out quick. Spend time and enjoy the view and conversation. You don't have to wear dresses and suits, it is casual but no swim suits, t-shirts, flip flops. They have a full service bar and many wine choices. We will visit this place again.

    We were staying at Hotel Breakers as the host hotel for the triathlon we were doing. Little did we know you are basically "stuck" out on the peninsula with only a TGIFridays and a Perkins attached to the hotel. Considering the Friday's menu was really small compared to a "normal" menu, and the prices were ridiculous for a real meal, we thought we'd checkout Bay Harbor. We are so glad we did! Real chef with real good meals and reasonably priced for a excellent dinner.

    Way overpriced for what it is. Was not at all impressed with the food. Restaurant is old, musty, and in need of cleaning. King crab was spongy and the shell was soft, so not fresh. Strip steak was fine but at $40 WAY overpriced. Lobster fettucini was awful. No flavor. Very little lobster. Caprese salad was pre-prepared, refrigerated and drowning in balsamic dressing. Ice cold. No flavor. No menu options for kids. Best part of this place is the view of the marina. Will not go back again and would not recommend.

    Valet parking made the evening traveling alone that much nicer. The restaurant is literally on the water. I was seated at a table overlooking the lake; wonderful! The menu offered a variety of options for most pallets. Waitstaff was efficient, friendly, and accommodating. Food was delicious. Ambience was modern , yet, welcoming. I would dine here again in a heartbeat.

    This was our special meal during our stay at Cedar Point. Everything was outstanding. Prices were a little higher than I usually spend at home (buffalo,ny), but we were on vacation. A special occasion dinner would be perfect here. Thoroughly enjoyed the escargot, not seen on menus at home.

    Been here before always had good experience, this time waited over 30 minutes just for a drink, another 30 for bread, meal came another 30 minute wait, if i was eating at the Olive garden or Red Lobster I would say its good, but when your paying between $30 to $40 you expect its going to be real good, it was not. Restaurant took a Large group on a Saturday night and allowed speeches and recognition for its people, I did not pay all this money to listen to a ra ra session, Cedar Point Needs to up the game or lower prices to match your product.

    This is a hidden gem at Cedar Point and for the city of Sandusky. We dine at Bay Harbor every time we visit Cedar Point and have never been disappointed. On this occasion the food was excellent as it always has been but the service was OUTSTANDING! Our server "Ed" went out of his way to ensure we enjoyed our experience. We can't wait for our next opportunity to visit, if only we lived closer!

    Cedar Point is fantastic fun, but other than fast food or TGIF, your finer dining options are non-existent. Enter Bay Harbor. While not the finest restaurant ever ever, it stands alone among the choices at Cedar Point. We dined here both nights we stayed at the Park simply because nothing else even compared. Service was okay, food was well done, and the view and setting were a welcome relief from the sea of humanity inside the park. If you are looking for something a little more "upscale", this is your place.

    We celebrated our engagement at the Bay Harbor July 15, 1978. We have wanted to get back, but never made it again until this year. It was as special as we remembered it--and then some! The food truly exceeded our best imaginings. Then, the manager compt our desserts. We had a wonderful time and won't wait 30+ years before we return again.

    Once again, Bay Harbor does not disappoint. The food is always good, the service always attentive and the view of the marina/bay is always great. We have been here many times and we will come back again. We have been known to drive the 80-mile roundtrip, just for dinner. Also, a little tip for you - they validate the parking fee you are charged by Cedar Point to get to the restaurant. Enjoy - we always do.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010

    I dined with my husband and 8-year old daughter for our "fine-dining vacation dinner" in July and we enjoyed a delicious meal & excellent service. We had a reservation, & the restaurant accommodated a last minute request to change the time (the dining room did not appear busy). The service was spot on. While I qualify this as "upscale", I call it kid friendly because they do offer a nice kid's menu - though my daughter opted for the french onion soup instead, which the waiter recommended for all of us. Indeed, we wished we had ordered the onion soup instead of the crab cake - the meat was not very "lumped" & overly seasoned. But our lobster tail and prime rib were superb with very nice sized portions. Our table had a sunset view of the bay.

    We always head to this restaurant for special occasions because the food is consistently excellent. The restaurant is in a lovely spot, and the service is outstanding. We recently took our visiting son there for his birthday, and he raved about the food--- that "rave" is worth a lot as he has worked in several restaurants in the past!

    I have been at this place many times while my kids have enjoyed the rides at Cedar Point. It was a welcome retrieve from the chaos of the park. I booked 6 weeks out for dinner and tried to time in for the fireworks. The table view was fantastic but the food was dismal. Both my daughters ordered baked potatoes. They were out. My husband had the perch and the slaw dressing had no dressing...nothing..just cabbage. Along with my other dish I ordered the veggie dish...which was promoted as the local Farmer plate. 2 carrots 2 asparagus and 1 beet cut up with nothing on it...no salt no pepper no nothing. Just steamed. 5 dollars!!!You have a treasure in your backyard and nothing done with it. Shame on the chef for having an opportunity.

    Had a great meal here with my fiance, my sister and her boyfriend on July 4th. The menu had a lot of great seafood options, so right up my alley! I had the pear and watercress salad and crab legs and they were both delicious. We also tried a couple of seafood apps - walleye bites and shrimp cocktail, which were good as well. Others had a shrimp and scallop linguine, and the blackened grouper oscar. For being at Cedar Point, the food and service was very good (I expected more a more mainstream, "chain-y" experience).

    We had a great evening at The Bay Harbor! The food was great ~ very, very happy to have the bar menu back. We are dock holders and stopped going because they removed the bar menu. So we are very happy to have it back. The service was very slow and it was not crowded. That could be improved but overall a great night. We will be back as long as the bar menu remains.

    Upon entering Bay Harbor, we were greeted warmly and relaxed in the beautiful bar area with a glass of Prosecco. We dined by the window, which provided a beautiful view of the boats in the harbor and Lake Erie. The most notable was Lisa, our waitress. She was OUTSTANDING and made our experience memorable. Also, a young man, who was filling water glasses was an amazing individual, who shared great stories and aspirations. The food was amazing, and the olive butter to die for! We will definately be returning anytime we are in the Sandusky area!

    If Bay Harbor wasn't on Ceder Point's property it would be perfect to go to. My boyfriend and I didn't actually go to the amusement park, so the parking fee was silly to pay for just to go to dinner but thank god we walked around a bit to get use out of paying the parking. We went here for a special occasion, and it was pretty quiet and romantic. But beware of Ceder Point families that just stop in to eat. There was a table next to us who where a little loud and obviously not dressed for the restaurant, so that was a buzz kill. Overall, it was great but I wouldn't go back unless I was at the park.

    I surprised my husband by taking him here to celebrate his job promotion. It was very nice and quiet and had a beautiful view of Lake Erie. The food was good but it's expensive. Definitely a special occasion type place for us. I am a flexitarian (not strictly a vegetarian but I don't eat alot of meat) so the menu was a bit challenging for me. We each ordered one drink, 2 appetizers, 2 entrees and 2 desserts and it was $120. Not terrible for a special occasion but that's a bit expensive for everyday dining. This place is not for tourists wanting to try something new while visiting Cedar Point. As far as the dress code, they told me "as long as you don't come in naked" we would be fine.
