New Island House in Port Clinton OH

This is sort of an upscale place for PC, but it is worth a visit if you are looking for a nice restaurant. The setting is an old hotel bar and dining room complete with tin ceiling and wood bar. Service was adequate but not spectacular, and the food was very good except for the perch dinner, which was outstanding! Prices are probably high for the area, but reasonable for folks used to larger cities. Nice wine and beer selection--not to many choices, but enough decent options. They had some nice steak entrees that looked good, and they do really good baked potatoes, regular and sweet.

    Thanks for the review, Mr. K! I often drive between Toledo and Clevo, and I'll check this place out! From discussions with a restaurant cook/buyer I've learned that good perch isn't so easy to get, and I'm glad to pay a few dollars extra for it.

      It's $18.95 for a perch dinner including bread, salad, potato, and veggie. Not a bad deal as I have paid $15 for much more mediocre fish. IMHO, almost any perch is good perch although most seems to be quite average, at best.
