Our menu takes what we love from traditional seaside food and gives it a contemporary, Italian twist. Sitting at the mouth of the Black River, Dodie's remodeling pays homage to the building's original architecture while harnessing the nautical spirit of Lake Erie's coast. With local art and historical photographs, Dodie's takes pride in being the place where you gather for the food, for the ambience, and especially for the community. Here, find your destination restaurant for all occasions in Lorain. We encourage both family gatherings and intimate date-nights. Have a cocktail in the Bar Lounge with views of Black River Landing. Share a meal with friends or out-of-towners, and show off Ohio's charming lakeside.
