Review: Cedar Point Bay Harbor Lake Erie Perch

One of the most important natural resources for living in northern Ohio is an abundance of fresh water from the great lakes. With all that fresh water comes one of the regions important fish, the Lake Erie Perch. While we eat a lot of perch, especially during Lent with weekly fish fry events, we decided to try the Cedar Point Bay Harbor Lake Erie Perch on a recent visit.

As a reminder, Bay Harbor is located on the Cedar Point peninsula but outside of the park. Therefore, guests can visit Bay Harbor all year long. During the off-season, Bay Harbor is open for dinner Wednesday through Saturday, with daily operation resuming once Cedar Point opens.

All meals are served with complimentary bread and flavored butters which are always delicious!

We started out the meal with the Bay Harbor garden salad, which features mixed greens, cucumber, red onion, grape tomatoes, carrots, and house dressing. We always really enjoy the salads at Bay Harbor for their fresh ingredients and the house dressing has the perfect hint of sweetness to it.

The Lake Erie Perch meal includes three pieces of lightly breaded fish that are fried. The meal is served alongside a Key Lime Slaw and seasoned potato wedges.

We always wish the potato wedges would be served inside of Cedar Point instead of the ones they use now because they are really good! The slaw is terrific and the fish was fresh and well seasoned.

For dessert, we opted for the Chocolate Cake which is really good and an excellent way to cap off the meal.

Discount Cedar Point Tickets on Groupon

April 2017 Cedar Point Groupon

Looking for Discount Cedar Point Tickets? Cedar Point released a handful of tickets on the conglomerate discount site Groupon on July 21, 2015. They sold out within days. They brought the promotion back a week later and it again sold out within a day. Then for the third time last season, discounted Cedar Point tickets were available on Groupon and sold out within days.

Ahead of the world premier debut of Cedar Point’s Valravn roller coaster, discount Cedar Point tickets were on Groupon in April 2016 for $41.44 each, more than they had ever been listed prior. At the end of July 2016, they went on sale again for $39.99 each. Then in August 2016, tickets went on sale FOR ONE OF THE LOWEST PRICES WE EVER SAW, $33.80 and were valid through September 11, 2016!

So we are always excited when we see the discount Cedar Point tickets on Groupon return.

Tickets are currently $41.59 per ticket (valid through September 4, 2017) or $69.99 for a two day ticket (valid through October 29, 2017).

The Two Day, Any Day option is valid for one guest for two visits, any two days to Cedar Point and/or Cedar Point Shores Waterpark during the 2017 operating season. The ticket can be used for two non-consecutive or consecutive days in any combination: two days at Cedar Point, two days at Cedar Point Shores, one day at each park, or two days at both parks on the same day.

The one day ticket is currently cheaper than the price on the Cedar Point website by $11.20 per ticket!

The two day ticket on Groupon is currently cheaper than the online price of just buying it through the Cedar Point website because you will not pay tax or the processing fee, saving you $8.80 per ticket.

While the Christmas in July sale is typically the best price on tickets all season, at only $29.99 per person, that sale only lasts one day. Therefore, this sale is typically one of the best prices for tickets to the park. We highly anticipate this sale selling out sooner than later like it did each year.

Be sure before you head to the park to check out our Cedar Point Food Guide, with tons of tips and info to help plan your adventure.
