●The Roadhouse, 11535 W. Central Ave,, keeps it simple with a menu stocked with steak, burgers, fries, chicken, and bar food. Stick to the homemade items like the chili, chicken rice soup, and the big, fresh half-pound hamburgers. Tuesday night's Mexican menu is worth checking out. $ 3 stars
● Real Seafood Co., 22 Main St. A long time staple at the Docks, Real Seafood serves up some of the freshest seafood in town in a elegantly chic environment. Our favorites included the stuffed Atlantic salmon ($25.95) at dinner and the shrimp wrap ($10.95) for lunch. Side dishes include standard potatoes and vegetables and are sometimes inconsistent. $$ to $$$$ 3 stars
● Mama LaScola’s Italian Kitchen, 6060 Renaissance Pl. (off Holland-Sylvania Rd. north of Sylvania Rd.), is the newest of the LaScola group of restaurants. In a strip mall, its large, tasteful room black-and-white checkered tablecloths and Tiffany-style glass lamp shades. It has a large wine list, crisp Italian beers, and a vast menu, ranging from classic Italian and pizzas to sandwiches. Avoid the steaks. $$ to $$$ 3 stars
● Flame Asian Tapas Bar & Grill, 27250 Crossroads Pkwy., Rossford, has an impressive selection of main-course entrees as well as smaller-portion tapas. We were impressed with several dishes, including Crouching Tiger, Hidden dragon, House Special Spicy Noodles, Shrimp Purse, and Bangkok You So Hot wings. We weren't so enamored with others, such as Chili-Peppered Sfoft-Shell Crab, pineapple chicken, Ahi tuna salad, or the Mochi Flower ice cream. $$ 3 stars.
●Stella’s Restaurant & Bar, 104 Louisiana Ave., is located in a beautiful historic building in the heart of Perrysburg. The restaurant offers a nouveau cusine twist on comfort food. Make sure you try the excellent clam chowder, grilled ribeye cap steak appetizer, and the steak for dinner. We also were fans of the chicken maui lunch sandwich, the mushroom soup, and gazpacho. $$$ 3 stars.
●Reynolds Garden Cafe, 1220 S. Reynolds Rd. This place may have limited hours (it's only open for breakfast and lunch), but it's big on variety. With 20 breakfast omelettes, 20 lunch sandwiches, and many other options, you're sure to find something you'll enjoy at RGC. We particularly enjoyed the smothered chicken omelette ($7.50). Portions are large enough to share, for many of the restaurants meals. $ 3 stars.
