Reviews for Sandusky Paper District Marina
excellent stay, 2015-07-14
Captain: , lake erie (136)

Docks are great, They are trying solutions to keep the goose crap off the sidewalks, Dockage is VERY reasonable and personnal is VERY friendly. I will continue to make this a destination.
Dockside cafe/Bar is Very unique and if a freighter is coming in they sell rum punch-a bucket for $5.

Nice Docks; Great Staff; Sharing bathrooms with Cafe a bad idea., 2013-09-04
Captain: , Westerville (103)

Nice marina and staff. The Dockside Cafe seems nice and brings people into the Marina but making the marina bathroom available to Dockside Cafe customers is a negative. I don't see an alternative though. An aggressive cleaning schedule should be worked out with the help of the cafe to keep the bathrooms clean.

$1 a foot, but docks full of goose crap, washrooms not kept clean. Close to Hot Dog Tony's and Crush, 2 awesome eateries, close proximity to Cedar Point

Don't dock when wind is from North East, 2012-11-07

The Northeast blow comes right into this marina. Be prepared to rock around a bit if it's blowing from the Northeast. Nice docs, plenty of power and water. Short walk to downtown area for shopping and food.

AKA The Sandusky Boat Basin, this little-known marina was completed in mid-2011. It's a great way to explore the bright spots of downtown Sandusky. Since it's still largely undiscovered, area boaters can pull in to this impressive facility and have their pick of wells. The attendants are friendly and the docks and facilities are high-quality.

The on-site Dockside Cafe, is owned & operated by the owners of Zinc Brasserie & Crush Wine Bar. Fine dining options abound once ashore, including but not limited to: Zinc Brasserie, Crush Wine Bar and J. Bistro. (not to mention more down-to-earth favorites including Cabana Jack's, Water Street Bar & Grill and a few more blocks away, The Sandusky Fish Co.)

Area boaters owe it to themselves to take advantage of these great options!
