Erie beach has the best perch in the area. It also has other great choices. We ate in the Terrance room which is more casual. Have also ate in the cove room which is more formal. Have never had a bad meal and the service is top notch. A definite place to eat when visiting . I know many people... read more

We stopped at the Erie Beach Hotel for Sunday lunch on our way back from a nice weekend in Port Stanley. We arrived about 1:30 and the restaurant was not busy--by the time we were finished, we were the only ones there. As several reviewers have noted, the decor looks somewhat tired. My wife and I had the special Arctic... More

I have been going to Erie Beach Hotel for many years and have never been so disappointed. We had dinner at the cove room. The fish was good but the service was the worst that I have experienced. The waitress was distant and unwelcoming. When SHE asked if we would like something and we said Yes it never arrived i.e.... More

The Erie Beach Hotel has been in the same family for over 50 years and offers a comfortable atmosphere for enjoying the best perch that Lake Erie can offer. There is a variety of food for all ages, even if you don't like fish. I would recommend the soup of the day and the rice pudding. Delicious. The staff are... More

We enjoyed the bread served as well as the cucumber salad. The Arctic Char was delicious but it was a very small piece for the price of the meal and the mashed potatoes were dry. Delicious chocolate cheesecake dessert and good coffee. Nice atmosphere and I would return.

If you love home made salads, you'll love this place. We often go at lunch, as it usually includes the salad bar. I'm sure you won't be dissappointed.

Our group visited the Erie Beach Hotel in Port Dover, ON Canada in early December for an excellent and once again an elegant and excellent dining experience in the Cove Room.

Liked everything, disliked nothing! The food is in my review, there was lots of delicious food, and the service was great! I can't imagine anyone leaving there hungry.
