    Really nice and tasty meal cooked by Crush's owner Andrea Crawford and attentively served by our waitress Meghan. My guest, Fr. Joe Steinbauer, had the Market Fresh Walleye and I had the Pork Chop dinner. Very scrumptious topped off with a Manhattan, Johnny Walker Red and dessert of two Hennessy 's...I highly recommend...

    This restaurant was recommended by our innkeeper. So glad that he did. This was exactly the kind of restaurant we like for spending an enjoyable evening. Good wine and small plates prepared by a chef who really knows his flavors. I particularly like the ambiance, reclaimed main street commercial, which has been done with taste. After our meal we strolled down to the nearby waterfront and enjoyed the dusk looking out over the lake. This was a fond memory of our vacation. If we're ever back that way again, I hope to be able to come back to this restaurant.

    My husband had the breaded pork chop and it was delicious. It was so flavorful and tender. I had the sautéed halibut with sweet potato hash. It was cooked perfectly and the creamy sauce that was served with the fish was like nothing I’ve ever tasted. Our server was friendly and attentive.

    Absolutely horrible from the moment we walked in until we left shortly thereafter. Out of sushi, did not know what a cosmo martini was and ordered bread that was stale and served with a plastic cup that was virtually nothing but balsamic vinegar. Waitress was both incompetent and rude after she slammed down our receipt after paying. Just a terrible experience from start to finish. Would be an idiot if ever returned!!’

    Never disappointed with our evenings at Crush. The food and service is always excellent. I had the Shrimp Andouille sausage potato chowder and it was exceptional! That with the watermelon salad were great! My husband had the 10 oz. steak with mashed potatoes and asparagus that he loved. Topped off with a nice bottle of wine and we were very happy!!

    We stopped in for dinner after arriving in for the weekend from Michigan for Cedar Point. We were pleasantly surprised at the overall atmosphere, food and service here and in a good way. Really interesting menu and options, all very good. Loved the truffle fries and ragu bolognese. Recommend for sure!

    We walked in and the restaurant was pretty much empty. Two tables were taken. We requested a table that seats four because we like to sample a menu and order multiple appetizers and small plates. The hostess informed us that all of there tables for four were reserved. We sat at a table for two. Had to place the wine bucket on the floor due to lack of space. The dinner for two of us was $250. When we got up to leave, none of the tables we originally had seen open had been taken. I would not go back. Feeling lied to when you go to a restaurant to have an enjoyable evening is never a good thing.

    We had a great time celebrating the birthday of a friend who is a "foodie." Our appetizers, Tuna Tartar and Sashimi Trio, were outstanding! My small plates, Strawberry Greens Salad and Brussel Sprouts, are favorites and didn't disappoint. My partner's entree, salmon pasta, was splendid. Our friend's seafood pasta was fabulous. Drinks were great too! Thanks for a great night!
