    Long wait for food. The quality of the food did live up to the cost. Will not be returning.

    A gem and a result of the owner’s commitment to the area. Excellent food, excellent service, and we always look forward to another meal at Bay Bell.

    We were in town and had heard good reviews, but learned the menu had changed. The food was okay, but no standouts. Two of the people in our party got the bone in pork chop; they said the flavor was decent, but the cut of meat seemed low quality and not what I’ve seen at other places. The blackened grouper was good but just a piece of fish on a plate, and the ahi tuna preparation was not traditional (they served it blackened). Sides were good (grilled broccoli and grilled asparagus), and service was good. I understand they are trying to be more ‘fine dining’, but they have work to do on the menu; it needs refinement.

    This was our first experience at the Bay Bell. The quality of the food was very good and there were many things from which to select. We got to sit out on the patio, which was lovely. The prices were reasonable for the quality of the food and the great view. Like most establishments right now, our waitress could have used a little more help - she had a lot of tables at the same time and was doing her best - but they were clearly short handed which prevented her from checking in as often as we would have liked. We will definitely be back.

    Perch and walleye dinners were delicious! Large dinner salad was fresh and very good also. Nice wine selection. Servers were very friendly. Dined night before the eclipse, it was busy. Outdoor seating with water view available.

    Wonderful establishment with a great backstory. So happy that the owners have invested in the community. A guiding light for other potential investors in northern Ohio. Chef is amazing.

    We loved the location and the margaritas were very good but our meal wasn't great. I got the lobster Mac and cheese and it was barely warm and there was about 5 pieces of fishy lobster on top. The consistency of the mac and cheese reminded me of a microwavable Bob Evans Mac and cheese. It was $25. The onion rings were really greasy too. Fresh cut fries are a plus. Would like to try their breakfast sometime though!
