    We had business to do in Huron and booked an early dinner afterward. Our food was excellent, and we had a nice chat with the owner. We will be back.

    We went to Crush last year for my wife's birthday and it was wonderful! What made it wonderful was our waiter. He recommended the perfect wine for our dinner. This time we had a pretty inexperienced waitress. Our meal was perfect, but we struggled to find the right wine and they didn't have the wine we wanted to have with our dinner.

    We were there on Wine Wednesday, all bottles of wine up to $125.00 are 1/2 off! You definitely can't go wrong with that deal, and the selection of wines is endless. As always the service was excellent and the food was delicious. This is our favorite restaurant in Sandusky to enjoy a wonderful meal and cocktails.

    Crush is one of our favorite Sandusky restaurants. My husband and I were celebrating our 27th anniversary. I got the black pepper fettuccine and he got the truffle mushroom pasta. The bread and oil dip it delicious and we split a strawberry salad. We sat at a table in the window which was romantic and shared a bottle of Oberon. Perfect dinner celebration and a great value.

    While our waitress was very attentive, the food was disappointing. My husband ordered the pork chop, and my daughter and I ordered small plates. We waited almost an hour for our food. Our waitress explained that since we wanted to have all of the food brought out at the same time, we believe that the pork chop was cooked first (since it would take longer to cook) and then sat being kept warm while the small plates were finished. The result was a very overbooked piece of meat. It was redone, but by then my husband was basically eating dinner by himself. The waitress apologized for the slow service and overcooked food. We enjoyed our first time at Crush, but this experience has put a damper on our enthusiasm to return soon.

    As usual, we had a great meal. Our server, Maddie, was amazing---very attentive and prompt from taking our orders to delivering our drinks and food. Crush has the best pizza in Sandusky (salume pizza) and the scallops sambuca are amazing. We love Crush and look forward to going there every boating season.

    Everything was Great! The service was great! The food was great! The Patio was great! However there is a no smoking sign on the patio asking customers not to snake and the person ikon the table in front of us starting smoking a Vap of some kind and the waiter or management did nothing to stop him. Because of personal issues i and my family can not be around smoke of any kind so maybe next time we will have to make sure the no smoking rule is in effect.

    We used to eat there a while ago when visiting Sandusky and it was very good. Tried it last year and they wanted to seat us outside and the table was dirty with bird stuff all over so we left. This time we waited for food a very long time, asked waitress status and she asked us if we wanted her to ask. We paid for our wine and left. Will never go back. It’s gone down hill…so sad

    Crush is the gem of Sandusky! We had an exquisite meal this evening! We started with the cheese plate and Carrot Miso Soup. Our entrees were both the Lobster Pot Pies! Fabulous!! My husband had a martini and I enjoyed a Rombauer Chardonnay. Our service was impeccable and the ambiance of sitting outside in the “alley” was so lovely! We cannot recommend Crush enough. They just do it right in our opinion!!
