We loved dining at Crosswinds Grille! It was our first time out to a nice dinner since everything has reopened. The food was amazing - our favorite was the fried haddock and the cheeseboard. Our waitress was very nice and checked on us often. We will definitely be back!

My husband and I enjoyed the food very much. We celebrated our 22 anniversary. I had called ahead so they would know it was our anniversary, but they didn’t acknowledge us.

Had a delicious meal while staying at the inn with a friend. Beef is local and very tender. Potato side was very good. Wine is top-notch. I would definitely recommend it and go again.

The food was fantastic and the filet was perfectly cooked. The music was great to go along with dinner. Only thing I would say something about was the service was very slow. I don’t mind an evening to enjoy the company but keep the drinks full and ask how things are. We will be back because the food is fantastic and we love this place.

Was looking for a place to get a quality steak at a (somewhat) affordable price, and discovered Crosswinds Grille on line. My wife and I visited on Super Bowl Sunday, ensuring a quiet visit! The ambiance was great, with a clean, contemporary and friendly feel. The large windows overlook Lake Erie, and would be great for a summer-time visit. Our server / hostess was very friendly and well-informed, taking time to educate us regarding the available cuts of meat, and making recommendations as requested. My wife decided on the filet ($30) while I went with the sirloin ($28). The meals were delicious, and the serving sizes just right. While the total bill -- with drinks but no desert -- was not inexpensive, it was a good value, considering the quality of the experience. I have no reservations in recommending Crosswinds Grille for a wonderful meal. We will be back to enjoy the lakeside patio when the weather warms up.

Pricey. Asked if I could have bread while waiting for my meal and told it’s extra. SMH. I would probably stop for a drink in the bar but not dinner.

One of the very best places in Ashtabula County to enjoy a fine dining experience. Great food, warm atmosphere and friendly staff. We have been here on multiple occasions, from dining with friends to celebrating a special occasion. We love that each menu item tells a story of where the food was locally sourced or you can enjoy a delicious, melt in your mouth Na*Kyrsie featured steak. The steaks were amazing with a true wood fire grill flavor and were really tender. This was our first time trying the duck and it was prepared perfectly. Fantastic all around!

We go to Crosswinds often. This was the first time we came away feeling like we missed something. The menu was limited, being New Year’s Eve, but that’s understandable. The server was not knowledgeable about the food and acted very nervous.
The food was very good as usual.

Outstanding food. Had the grass fed filet mignon and it was expertly prepared. Best steak I have ever eaten....hands down! The side dishes were A1 and the beet salad is one of my favorites. Our server, “Crystal” was very personable and efficient. We frequently eat at Crosswinds and always have had exceptional meals and look forward to our next night visit.

Although the rib eye was a very generous and nice cut of meat, it was almost too salty to eat. Combine that with salty potatoes and it was not a very good $36 meal. We also had the shrimp and scallops on spaghetti. The shrimp and scallops tasted fine, the spaghetti was nothing special.

We had a great experience at this restaurant years ago and decided to return while staying in Geneva for the weekend. Our food was good and our server was attentive. We were very disappointed that much of the menu was sold out for the season; several entrees, appetizers, and wines were not available. So the menu was very limited and the wine and entrees we wanted were sold out- kind of a bummer!

When visiting GOTL we eat at the Lakehouse Inn 6-8 times a year.
Always a great experience.
A little disappointed last night when our reservation was cancelled when we were 10 minutes late. It all work out and they found us a seat.

This is a wonderful little place with great food. Unfortunately the server forgot to enter one of our 3 meals, so 2 of us ate while one watched and then one of us ate while the other 2 watched. The food was still excellent and the server told us what happened, apologized and took the late meal off our bill. So even with the snafu, we loved the place, loved the food and felt good about how we were treated.

We celebrated our anniversary at Crosswinds this last weekend. Overall, somewhat disappointed. We seemed to take a “back seat” to other tables that had larger parties, and the food was not nearly as good as it was the last time we dined there. Maybe it was just an “off” night.

Very nice location, although a bit on the noisy side, my wide and I enjoyed this local. If there is one unique aspect that stands out is the commitment to very high end local foods. The locally sourced grain fed beef was nothing short of amazing.

What delightful way to end the day of touring covered bridges. We happened upon Crosswinds Grille and we able to reserve a table for four. Had a delicious meal, bottle of wine and wonderful warm bread. Can't wait to be in the area again to enjoy a great meal. The views of Lake Erie were a bonus.

Busy Saturday evening with several long tables of homecoming and bridal parties. Staff appeared to be stretched thin. Bar and food service were incredibly slow for our table although others seated at close to same time as us were served and finished their meals before we (party of 4) were served. We have eaten there a number of times in the past and enjoyed it much more. Liver and onions is a favorite because of the great mashed potatoes. It was served with halved roasted instead of mashed this night.

We dine here whenever we visit Geneva on the Lake and are usually very impressed with the food and service. This visit, however, lacked in both respects. Our server knew very little about each cut of beef that was offered that night. My husband ordered the Ranch steak and while its temperature was fine, the cut itself lacked flavor. My daughter ordered the filet and it, too, lacked flavor. Presentation was also off. Both cuts of beef were plopped on top of a mound of lumpy mashed potatoes. Wondered if it was just an off night or if the restaurant changed managers.

The food was delicious, the chicken entree was one of my favorite meals I’ve had and the service was excellent. Beautiful views of the lake and very pretty outdoor scenery. Suggest going about 45 minutes before sunset to capture the stunning sights after dinner. Can even get a to go drink to sit out on the patio and enjoy the sunset with a glass of wine or your favorite cocktail.
