Fresh Fish Fast

We keep returning here because the perch and walleye are so well prepared. It is quite casual in atmosphere, and you order at a window , but it is a filling meal, with cole slaw and waffle fries. There are several other options on the menu, but this is our favorite, and consistently good !

Best walleye and perch I have ever eaten. Super fresh fish cleaned and breaded behind a huge window then brought to your table quickly.

Best fresh fried fish at the islands. The Walleye is wonderful. Small casual restaurant. Would definitely stop here for lunch or dinner.

We both ordered the Lake Erie Perch and it was wonderful. The inside was clean and the staff was friendly.

Excellent food! Had both perch and walleye. Both fried to perfection! Waffle fries were good too. I don't think they have salads - vegetarians may have a hard time with this menu. Definitely planning on visiting again!

Staying in Oak Harbor - not many choices. Drove into Port Clinton and found this gem. If you are on a health kick, this place is NOT for you. Everything is breaded and fried. They even have a conveyor belt to bread the fish. I had the Shore Platter with walleye and perch, waffle fries, cole slaw, and roll. All... More

This place is excellent if you like fried fish (lots of choices of fish) and a local unique dining experience. The restaurant is very small so it is better to go between meal times. You can watch the fish being prepared on a conveyor of sorts. If you are a vegetarian or want healthy food options, don't go here. You... More

We went here on a recommendation of a friend of ours. I was expecting a little more variety so was a little disappointed that they only really had perch and walleye since I'm not a big fish person. I tried the walleye and it was the best fish sandwich I've ever had. Very inexpensive too. Will go back!

I am not a big fish fan, but here I could eat it all day. They do leave the skin on so I just flip it over so I cant see it because I cant taste it. Its a small place but they do have seating outside.The Walleye and Perch are both very good.

If you're in the area and you want to get a perch or walleye sandwich or platter stopping here is a must. You will not find a better battered and fried well selection anywhere else in town. This is a small place and can get very crowded in a short amount of time. It's nothing fancy so you can go... More
