Traveled from Wisconsin and had to stop at the new Sandusky fish company. Made a special trip with my sister and wife and to have some of the most wonderful perch ever. we bought it by the pound and OD'd on just perch. Highly recommended:service great, food superior. Will definitely return on our next trip from Wisconsin

Not really a restaurant. No atmosphere escept the port of Sandusky. No table service. Just deep fast-fried local fish as fresh as you can imagine and done right. Very generous portions. Pick up your order and sit at the picnic table outside with the ducks and geese. Come very hungry.

I have heard a lot about this place. Tried it out yesterday and I won't be going back. Fish is nothing to brag about, coleslaw was okay, but the tartar sauce was disgusting with dill and lemon in it. Blah! Bones in the fish too.

You can not get any fresher than the New Sandusky fish Co. Little dive "restaurant"-more like a food truck because they only have outdoor seating. The walleye sandwich is the best!

Seasonal restaurant - so check to make sure they're open. Our (and many others') go-to place for fresh fried fish in Sandusky Ohio. It's a fish 'shack' - no offense - no indoor seating - they do what they do to the highest praise of lifelong fish lovers. There is no more I can say except, "Bless you for keeping... More

My first visit was to find another lunch place during Lent but now it is the place I go to anytime I want a Lake Erie perch sandwich. The sandwich and the fries are very good. I tend to visit more when the weather is nice and you can enjoy the outside picnic tables.

You can't go wrong with cooked to order fried perch. By the piece or as a sandwich, it's excellent. When the weather is nice you can dine outside.

The absolute best perch in the area. This place isn't fancy and it definitely has a fishy smell when you walk in the door, but these people know how to cook up,some perch. You walk in and order at the counter. You can eat outside at picnic tables or take it to go. They have burgers and chicken fingers on... More
