Weekend in Port Clinton: Friday

Late lunch at McCarthy's Pub on arrival in Port Clinton. I highly recommend the Madison Salad. For bigger appetites, try the traditional Irish fare: shepherd's pie, potato soup, Irish stew, or a boxty, and of course, a Guiness.

Old Wine Barrels at Mon Ami Winery. After lunch we drove around Catawba Island to scout out some dinner places.

After dinner at the Islander Grille, we found a spot to watch a Catawba Island sun set. The Islander Grille is the new incarnation of Port Clinton's Garden Restaurant, which closed, sadly, due to a fire last fall. The food is still tops. They still bring out an appetizer of pâté (on the house), and I was glad to see they still had their Fish Market salad (shrimp, berries, field greens and other good things) on the menu. The Islander Grille is located on the Islander Golf and Country Club on Catawba Island.
