The food is very good. Menu is somewhat limited. No local Lake Erie fish on the menu. Great fries. Excellent service from bar and wait staff.

Outstanding Valentine's Day dinner. Great wine list and reasonably priced... knowledgeable staff to make recommendations. Creative, healthy dishes and the small plates allowed us to share and enjoy many options.

Crush is always our date night “go to” spot. The service is great. The food is amazing. The atmosphere is chill and casual. We have never been disappointed and we tell everyone that we love it. We don’t do chain restaurants anymore. We spend locally, and places like this make that easy and always worth it. I always stop back to tell the kitchen staff how amazing our meal was.

Sat by drapery at door. Very cold draft every time door opened(often). Speed up door closure at least.

New Years Eve dinner. Meals, atmosphere, wine selection were all wonderful. We had a little issue with our meals but it was taken care of promptly and the staff went above and beyond our expectation in handling the matter. Great job and looking forward to our next visit.

We met some friends from Michigan at Crush last night. The place is warm and cozy, great for dinner, drinks, and conversation. I had the fruitti de mare, and it was delicious! They have a very complete wine list and our server John was wonderful. He was attentive but not intrusive. Overall, it was a very lovely evening out with friends. Highly recommended. I would definitely go back.

The food was outstanding! I had the Surf and Turf. The rest of the group had very positive remarks about how good the food was. The waitress was kind and very attentive. On a negative note, there was a customer at the bar that had several phone calls and had his phone on speaker. None of the staff asked him to turn it off.

Absolutely loved the setting and the menu. There was live music in the 'kitchen bar' side of the restaurant that was a little loud in the 'dinner' side of the restaurant so it wasn't easy to have a quiet conversation, but the music was good.

Will definitely be back....more items on the menu that I want to try!

This was my 4th trip to Crush and it never disappoints! The menu is varied and delicious- competent service, nice ambiance! The mac n cheese and fettucini are among my faves- this time we had the margherita pizza as an app - good but nothing to write home about- I had the sirloin steak as an entree- very good and pineapple upside down cake with butterscotch ice cream for dessert- very tasty- overall, a good experience as always! One of the gems of Sandusky !

We went to Crush for my father-in-law's birthday. The food is incredible. It was the best filet mignon I have ever had. Everyone loved the food.

Always great at Crush or any of their family of restaurants. They are all high quality in food, service and atmosphere.

We were seated too close to the front door and had too much light from outside to enjoy the ambiance. The table top could have been a lit bigger.

Crush has a good variety of food and drinks. We typically order small plates and share. This time we also split the burger and it was particularly good.
