    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!

    We were there on a Sunday evening. Way understaffed. In fairness, our server warned us after we were seated it would take awhile because they were short staff. 2 servers, one hostess/bar tender, and the kitchen must have been short too. It was 90 minutes from when we arrived before we received our food. Some who came in later than us were served sooner, possibly because they just had sandwiches versus our entrees. Regardless.... Of the 4 meals, the grouper and salmon were excellent, the lamb OK, and the chicken tough and not good. Plus they forgot some side dished they brough later. So a mixed report card on the food. Our server was friendly, very good, when she got to us just stretched and tired. She'd been there since breakfast. The setting is excellent, and the decor simple but very nice. This place has real potential, but we won't be back for a while until we hear better reports.

    They need to make smaller proportions on the appetizers and dinners. Also tell us the number of purses not pounds of things on the menu.

    What a perfect place to enjoy a meal at the bar by yourself, a date night for two, or an evening out with friends. The food is beyond delicious and the portions will have you going home with a second meal for later! And the view of the lake…it’s breathtaking!

    Service was very good, bar jammed when busy, prices pushing the limit a tad, food quite good. Great addition to Vacationland dining options.

    We had a wonderful experience at bay bell! Our reservation for 10 was all set up and ready for our family. Our server was fantastic! She had a great personality. All of our food was delicious as usual. We were celebrating a birthday and anniversary. The owner came out Champagne for us as a surprise. How awesome is that! We love Bay Bell!
