Only open seasonably from April to November, Sara's on Presque Isle oozes Americana with its red and white décor, memorabilia and vintage 50s vibe. But that isn't all there is - Sara's takes burgers, fries, and other apps a cut above with a help-yourself "filling station" with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, specialty sauces like pesto and garlic, so you can truly make your burger your way. Don't miss the assortment of six or so shaker seasonings for your fries in the back seating area - Parmesan, cheddar, salt and vinegar and more. Alongside the classics, Sara's offers regional specialties. I loved my Italian beef sandwich with provolone and peppers, and my daughter's perch platter was massive enough to share.

This is a highly popular throw-back to the 1950s at the entrance to Presque Isle State Park. Hamburgers, hot dogs, milk shakes, soft ice cream with picnic table seating. Food is just as advertised — unfussy and fairly priced. Relive your youth or experience what the older generation(s) loved in a less stressful era.

A great place to stop in the summer for some ice cream or hot dog. Great outdoor seating area right at the entrance of the peninsula.

I took my granddaughter there. She just loved it. For the type of food they have, it was excellent. It's not somewhere I would go often. But I definitely will be going there again. If you have kids, it's a great place to go.
