Crosswinds Grille Grass Fed Steak

Casual upscale dining on the shores of Lake Erie
featuring wood-fired 
Farm to Table cuisine.


Our Philosophy

The philosophy of Chef Nate and Crosswinds Grille is quite simple: start with the freshest, most local products possible and the end result will be more superior.

Farm to Table for us is more than a trend- it’s the hunt of finding product, building relationships with amazing farmers and serving real food.  The experience really is quite life-changing and the relationships built with our farmers is like nothing we have experienced before.

It is their passion that makes our job of cooking so much easier and their energy that makes our food taste so different.  Without them, we would just be another restaurant serving imported food.
