When I first started this blog I posted about places in Ohio I would like to visit. I have visited some of them since then, but there are still many places on my list. Now as my time here is dwindling, there are sights and sounds around the state I want to spotlight. Some are old-time favorites, others I have been introduced to only recently and the rest are places on my to-do list. These places include restaurants, museums, gardens and other institutions, all reasons why I truly do love this state.
My last installment was Melt Bar and Grilled in Cleveland. Up this week is the Sand Bar in Huron.This relatively nondescript building down by Nickelplate Beach is a summer “must.”
Getting there early is also a must. There’s nowhere to wait inside if there isn’t a free table, unless you can sit at the bar. They also run out of perch and the daily special, too.
But that doesn’t stop us from going. Their hamburger and fries is one of the best, and my family raves about their pizza, too.
My brother and I have Sand Bar shirts, and I have two restaurant pins, one of them proclaiming my love for the place. Like I said, there is not a lot of space inside, with about 10 tables, though four of those are big, round tables. But the food is great and definitely worth the wait.The Sand Bar is located at 54 Mckinley St, Huron. Its phone number is 419-433-2144.
