Picture this: It’s golden hour on a warm summer evening. You’re sipping a cocktail, swaying to the melody of live music and taking in the last orange and pink rays of sunlight glittering off of the Black River.

That’s what patrons of The Shipyards in Lorain can expect to experience while dining at the venue.

“It’s a remarkable setting,” says Nichole Fantauzzi, assistant general manager at The Shipyards. “You get the sun, the bridge that opens and closes, the boats and the lighthouse. Everything is gorgeous and very one with nature.”

She adds that at nighttime, the bridge and lighthouse light up, providing a soft glow over the restaurant’s guests.

“We’re just far enough away that you can get some really great pictures but also see everything from right here,” Fantauzzi says. “We want to provide a great overall experience with great food and drinks and an overall fun atmosphere.”
